Archive playthrough: Coryat $39,200 (48R, 3W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: Two negs on the $1200 row. Former Disney CEO = I had Michael Eisner. Famed canals + European city = went with Venice.

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My precall time was spent running through all the Mel Brooks movies I could remember, and on the reveal it was difficult to dislodge the wagon wheels from that rut. I'm curious if this clue would have a higher get rate with a slight rewording: "In the original script for this 1975 film, the title o...

Thinking about Equatorial Guinea helped me with this FJ; I thought no way the "Z" countries are on the same latitude and it was a reasonably quick jump to Uganda.

That can't be near enough stations for how many will be affected one way or another on Thanksgiving and/or Buy Black Friday. Why would stations be affected by Thu/Fri?...

Looks like Thorsten is taking off the entire Thanksgiving week. So, no Learned League to think about. How am I expected to face Monday? Clearly Thorston's just after some uninterrupted Shadowlands time. More impressive he was able to accurately predict the delay and reschedule of the launch :lol:
