Re: Tuesday, December 12, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I do anagrams, word jumbles, etc. all the time. I love them and I'm good at them. Still, in the time limits of a J! clue I believe I got 2 of the 5 anagrammed state capitals. I probably would have gotten all five if given ten seconds or so each. (For that matter I would have been dating Raquel Welch...

With apologies to Eric and Lindsay, those are two of the most unintentionally funny FJ responses in a while. An unruly church meeting would lead to an army field guide or the military code of conduct?? :lol: It just goes to show that when one's mind starts down the wrong track [and obviously: light...

Yes, a likeable group, but not a particularly stellar performance, including some pretty bad misses. Lach Trash: Civil War, Crimean War, firmament, Adriatic, (run fast, eat...) slow, Melissa Gilbert, leaning tower of Pisa...all in the first round?! woof.

NHO "Lorenzo the Magnificent". Can we poll?

You mean TWA actually stands for something?!

1. No poll. You'd be the only one.

2. Uh, yeah, just like BMW, AOL, and about a million other corporate initials.

Three good players today, and Alice gets bonus points for her vibrant, off-the-shoulder, orange blouse. However, I'm surprised that she wasn't asked to repronounce "Suez Canal." (I thought I heard "Soyuz.")
I heard Soyuz too.
So did I. I was astonished the judges did not correct this.

The FJ clues are getting worse by the day. Are they really thinking that someone would be that familiar with the cited verses, or were they thinking that someone might know every single flag so well - or just that you might guess a country close to Biblical locations?? Because I got hung up on King...

I don't remember this thread from its original posting. Seeing it now just makes me sad. For all the women who've been misused, for all the people we've admired and who turn out to be abusers, and, hell for America. Pray for constructive change.

No, not Auckland. No, not Christchurch. Shawn! Come on now, dude. Matt’s math for the FJ! round added up tonight. Missy covered the potential of Shawn doubling. Which he did attempt. Shawn left with $1,000 while he could have had $5K+ and a second game. Not the best way to get a good night’s sleep ...

How small is Bremen? Small enough that I was able to pull it out of my ass to get this FJ right.
And... there goes my coffee. JohnBoy, I've already used this line twice today. (A small royalty is forthcoming.)

Not sure where I ever heard of that city; perhaps in "Around the World in 80 Days." Whatever, I was also quite tickled to see it actually come up. How small is Bremen? Small enough...

Easy. They were thinking "Pick a number. Any number. Any number at all. Yeah, that's a number. I'm good."
