Re: Reretaken Down

Well...I don't regret that experiment, but I do rue and lament it. Bacon does not a good gin martini garnish make.

ABC already has a game show on the air that requires three contestants... "Press Your Luck."
And it would be awesome to see the three go head to head on that show.
And the Whammys are Trebek based and at least one will go "Ooh, sorry" before zeroing out the score.

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well done by Dennis for knowing how to open play in NIAGARA FALLS with the proper "Slowly I Turned" cadence. Credit to Superman II for my knowing the name of the water vehicle there. Others might remember it from The Office or from Wonderfalls. Some will remember it from, you know, having been on i...

Well, I liked that FJ and it's probably because I got it right. :D I really think they were shooting for us to think of someone in the royal family who's not a Windsor by blood. I knew Philip was born in Greece, so figured that means he's got less British blood than the other royals who married in,...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/16/2020 (SPOILERS)

I remember the West Point Mint question from an episode of the US Chase. However, this would make the 2019 part of the clue inaccurate. The West Point mint has been in service a while, but it's typically limited to the fancy stuff (gold, silver, unobtanium, platinum). They have rarely done special ...

Not a fan... have to bounce back and forth to know which emoji goes with what clue for one. Don't you have to do that when replying in the poll thread?

If that coin was made of aluminum, it wasn't floating in water. That looked like the old surface tension trick to me. Yes, of course it was. I had to look it up because I thought it might be hollow. A lot of trouble for a penny valued coin, but that is what the Japanese do. The surface tension even...

Re: Monday, January 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now, with most cable/fiber optic/satellite companies offering their own DVRs, and the elimination of VCRs, it's back to either "record", or occasionally "DVR", so DVR should now be on the tip of the tongue for a modern TV recording device, not TiVo. My mom used to say that she would "tape" somethin...

I think whatever the outcome, the next day's game thread should be started anyway, just to throw off those of us playing a day late. :D
