Re: Monday, December 11, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

38 R for me .. could've easily been more if I had time to look through that colorful book about Art I bought that's doing a lot of good sitting on my desk right now. :D Had yin/yang down quickly with about 85% confidence. Didn't immediately recognize the symbol as orange and blue, but it made sense ...

Re: TD 360 - Taylor Made (Final results)

Re: TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion [SPOILERS]

Bobby's precise, laser-focused demeanor reminded me of Matt Jackson slightly. I only wish to be the same if I ever get the call for J! Chalk up a moral victory for Natalie to be within $10k of Bobby's total at the end. Bummed he hit the Bankrupt and Lose A Turn when he did - total would have been mu...

Agreed, European made this Final a sinch. 34 right for me in total -- need to stop getting disappointed when country music clues draw crickets.

Rooting for Kyle to win one more time tomorrow so he can avoid the Tim Kutz/Todd Giese treatment.

Watched Wheel tonight and I was pleased to remember that tomorrow is the night. I'll be watching intently.

Best of luck to my fellow country music fan, TPH!

Re: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Unlike our challengers, I got stuck on the "church" part of the clue and didn't get near the correct response. Might have with more time to think about it, but a miss is a miss. It's nice to know that watching old episodes multiple times obsessively does pay off! That's the only way I got hurdy-gurd...

Add me to the crowd of got to the right topic, but couldn't come up with the name of the group. Ah well. The elusive 5/5 will have to wait another week!

Tough break to see our Sports J! alum unable to pull through at the majors.

Re: Breaking Pop Culture!

I'll drop my $0.02 as I understand how the OP feels; I am younger than most (if not all) of the folks on this board and understand some of the "challenges" described. Mark hit it right on the head by suggesting, for movies, to start with Oscar winners. A lot of my (albeit very small) movie knowledge...

Re: Thursday, November 30, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can only wish for categories about sports and New England if I ever get the chance..... of course that was nullified by skunks in the food and movie categories, but so it goes. :D Generally pretty weak in Bible categories, but I burned pictures of world flags into my head in elementary and middle ...

Re: Monday, November 27, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Seinfeld is slightly before my time and I don't watch the reruns, so I relied on knowledge of a certain Ken Jennings game to get to the Puffy Shirt. And now I am off to do research on German states. Glad to see Marcus win. I had rooting interest in Hilary, as I had a cousin (recently passed) that li...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

In the category of grain of salt, Alex in his 11/20 opening talked about the players wanting to qualify for next year's tournament of champions. I am aware you say grain of salt, but Alex is also the same guy who quipped shortly before this ToC started that the tourney would feature the best player...

This game was definitely a refreshing change of pace difficulty wise from the ToC with a nice confidence-booster, instaget FJ! Was pleased to see the football category go first and go 5/5 as well! Always have to root for fellow New Englanders so I had a 66% shot today. Congrats to Eric on his win, $...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

It's so hard to try and tell when tournaments will air... surely we remember how last year's Teen Tourney was originally supposed to air in May or July .. and then September.. and then November? I will point out, however, that this is the third year in a row where the college tourney will be in Febr...

I would have been laughed out of my former home state had I been on stage.. grew up in Vermont, so of course I missed the Final about Vermont.

Bit on John Andre here. Didn't think it was right but I'm not too familiar with Petain - I remember watching that teachers tourney game mentioned upthread with the Petain clue, but that just never stuck I guess. Good play all around this evening. First ToC in show history with finalists from three d...

Regardless of what happens tomorrow, the show probably got what they wished for with a final matchup containing their two biggest media sensations. Anything to get people watching, I suppose. Tough breaks for Jason, but luckily none of what he did ended up mattering considering he didn't get Final r...

Andrew offered a strong challenge but faded with some misses and too much guessing... :? Unlike many fans I really don't appreciate Austin's 'clever' repartee and his odd gestures. IMHO it's an intimidation tactic designed to distract fellow contestants. It's apparent that he won tonite because the...
