Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Sorry, sorry, sorry to have to add this, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their third child "Chicago" after her father's hometown. Whether this name is a keeper remains to be seen. The word translates to "stinking onion" in the native tongue. Who's going to tell them? Not me. :lol: Must...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

HA! Just 'Cannonball' was acceptable for Daytona 1D Q10. I was wondering how I managed to get past the 40th percentile on that one.

Blurted Dante's Inferno when they wanted Divine Comedy Starts with a "D", I'm counting it. :D First thing I thought of was Remembrance Day and I almost turned my brain off. Any of our Canadian boardies get suckered into that response? I kept thinking and switched to Armistice pretty quickly. Only v...

Re: HQ Trivia

I had the first game where an extra life would have helped yesterday... Missed Q11 and knew Q12. Considering the format, I think the questions are very well written. For now I'm happy to give them 15 minutes a day. I'm surprised they haven't tried to monetize yet though . THEY HAVE YOUR PHONE NUMBE...

Re: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I agree that just "Saint Patrick" should have been accepted as a short form of "Cathedral of St. Patrick" EXCEPT when the category is "Getting Possessive." For this one, I don't believe Alex gave rules for the category. I recall once before that someone gave a response that met the clue criteria bu...

The Korean women's ice hockey team will also have a unified player base.

Re: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought it was absolutely bizarre they let Olivia get away with not once, but twice not responding with a possessive when the category was "Getting Possessive." I don't get it. Yes, in a sense she "lived twice" on those clues...and then she couldn't take the hint on FJ!... ;) I didn't get the vib...

He’s probably doing better than the EMA guy in Hawaii that pushed the wrong button. It wasn't the wrong button. It was the wrong choice from a (confusing) drop-down menu. https://jboard.tv/download/file.php?id=605 Oh. I thought it went more like this: http://img.fark.net/images/cache/850/9/9S/fark_...

... Of course the unfinished category just had to be the fun one with the albums. My thoughts exactly, but in the DJ round. Yes - Claude Rains was in a lot of other stuff. Dooley Wilson, who plays and sings As Time Goes By in the movie, unmistakably points to Casablanca for most people... I loved t...

Either I've been slacking off or this year's been slower with the just mainstream enough to be a J! clue but not mainstream enough to flood the main stream media. Six of one, probably...

Re: Friday, January 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Why do they do double answers, especially on a DD? DDs are the right time to do double answers. The contestant has a little extra time to process the clue and come up with both parts. They are just bad anytime IMHO, even in Final Jeopardy unless there is a substantial entanglement. You've gotta dum...

Re: Thursday, January 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I know Manchester didn't win Best Picture. But they do release the list of nominees: Lauren Beck (K Period Media), Matt Damon (Matt Damon), Chris Moore (The Media Farm), Kimberly Steward (K Period Media) and Kevin J. Walsh (B Story). No one from Amazon. If Amazon coproduced it, in one of those pare...

While I didn't remember Amazon distributing Manchester by the Sea, I was fairly certain it wasn't produced by them because if Amazon (co)produced Manchester, someone from Amazon would have been up for sharing the Best Picture Oscar, and I know I would have remembered that. Well, maybe you would hav...

Either way Rebecca gets to play again even if she had no idea on the FJ! clue and was in no way thrown by the wording. Yeah, no kidding. Considering she didn't write anything down, I doubt she thought " Manchester by the Sea ? No, it was merely DISTRIBUTED by Amazon, not PRODUCED!" Welp, I, for one...

I'm surprised 2/3 had Warren but not Warner. As soon as I saw "Warren + ?" I said, "well, the other one must be Warner, because that's the only other name I can make out of those letters."
:shock: I think he's got it. By George, I think he's got it!

Re: Wednesday, January 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I’m with Alex in being in disbelief that no one could identify the picture one of the most famous actors of all time. It has to be one of those monitor distance things that handicap the players on stage or being thrown by the category and not knowing he appeared in the Serling series. Guess they di...
