Re: New old games in the J! Archive

When I clicked on the Season 36 link, Google Translate asked me if I wanted to translate it. It assumed it was Norwegian. I couldn't figure out what triggered it. Oops...I didn't indicate that I found this funny and just wanted to share. I always thought this was funny, too. I wish I knew what trig...

Keep the executioner on the clock as he will busy throughout the day. The clue did not go well at Fikkle either. I did an archive search of "canada four corners" and did not find any prior clues. Are there different terms to turn it up? Wouldn't have existed before 1999, so that narrows down the se...

I had never seen or heard of that putting style but I got it. You could actually be the world’s biggest golf expert and not get it if you didn’t know anything about croquet.

When the clue said "Bad version of Batman" I tried to think of the name of the Nite Owl character, who is a bad version of Batman. https://i.imgur.com/jvpbC25.jpeg Nite Owl Yeah, as the comic nerd, I insta-got Rorschach, but the clue itself confused me. The "Bad version of Batman" is Owlman, which ...

I forgot to mention in the previous post that Rachel got credit for having "and" between the two and not a hyphen, so either way is fine if it comes up for judging a response come poll time. I'd probably be okay with no hyphen, but I'm not sure having an "and" should be allowed. When I saw the judg...

Re: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

They were probably counting on the current Watchmen TV show to bump recognition which is a favorite tactic of theirs. (Haven't seen it, not sure how big a role Rorschach plays in it so I might be off the mark here) As far as my brief research leads me to believe, Rorschach is not in the show. That ...
