Re: TD 388 - Mystery Theme! - Q5-Q6 and bonus revealed

Must have mixed up Easter Island and the Galapagos going too quickly. :oops:

Not like it's going to matter, though. Alfonso freaking Soriano a sheep? Yikes.

Re: Wednesday, July 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

6 is clearly the new 5 when it comes to wins and ToC competitors. :D Hey Mark, how many superchamps have you rated bronze level? Or am I not giving Ryan enough credit? Ryan's got a good academic knowledge base and he seems to have success lower on the board. He's also 6/7 on Final. I honestly think ...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Briefly thought of Kabul but realized it didn't make sense - Baghdad it is. Pretty straightforward. Floored at how Ryan pulled off another comeback, and it's nice to see him make the smart play to go big given Michelle's wagering tendencies. Welcome to the ToC!! Seeing as how he mentioned he'd be go...

I hope I'm not the only one who simply couldn't figure out the theme.
I couldn't either. Granted it was early in the morning, but I'm usually not great at these anyway.

Definitely a tricky TD, looking forward to the reveal!

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Q6 & Bonus Results

Huh... I thought I'd written something else for the Q6 bonus LOL .. probably for the better. Guess my memory isn't all that good.

And this is the 21st century. No one reads anymore. :D

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Q3 Results

Ha... I didn't realize that some of the bonuses incurred penalties. :oops: That'll teach me! A forthcoming one point penalty for Q6 is certainly fair after the snide remark I made about the question anyhow.

Re: Monday, July 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Stupid answers seemed a little trickier than usual, maybe because of the pop culture angle and not so much the pure academic trivia? The board as a whole seemed on the easier side, but maybe that's just me. Sad to see Lauren go so soon, but at least a Bay Stater beat her if anything. Alex, it's pron...

So much for Marilyn’s game’s worth of experience helping her although as always when it happens, better in game 2 (or better) than in game 1. Was she not in the red for the entire DJ round? I started watching for her to bomb out of Final J with about ten clues left and I wondered when the last retu...

TV shopping never occurred to me; went Costco.

Anyone who correctly answers Ted Williams is a friend in my book - Lauren was awesome and I hope she keeps winning.

Stowe sounded right and I had it down immediately; I think I heard about the novel's commercial success in a class last year. Alex did scare the daylights out of me for mentioning Twain (got me thinking Alcott), but thankfully ended the statement with Civil War and then I was certain. 3/4 this week....

Re: How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Types of pasta and their meanings is another topic that comes up very frequently and may be worth your time. On the topic of TV/movies/celebs, are there any other sources worth looking at besides IMDb to scour for information? Not a big fan of celebrity gossip, CW shows or popular movies, and I feel...

Suzanne impressed me, I hope she keeps it going. Very cool to see a former D-I college baller on the show as well. Heard of Louis Prima (and I know he sings a version of Yes! We Have No Bananas) but the picture or his wife didn't help me. Mentioning 1989 for FJ didn't help, but Asian -> group -> Joy...

Re: Wednesday, June 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Vail resort company recently bought the mountain in my hometown - not sure I would've gotten that DD otherwise.

Didn't need it, but I thought that was a clever TOM for Final by including the "peach" - leads to Georgia, sports event, Masters. I'll take a sports Final over a movie Final every day!

Re: TD 385 - Old School (Questions 1-5 revealed)

Mid-2000s baseball nerd here and despite not being a White Sox fan, a lot of those names from '05 are locked to memory. I was worried that many others were going to try to go deep as well especially with that team, but felt pretty good about Podsednik. Surprised more didn't go with modern Cubs playe...
