Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge

This was really hard and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have at least 3 wrong answers.

So was this whole TD just an excuse for that last music clue?

Nice work, Sims. A singleton for Austin Rogers :lol:
I figured even if it backfired it'd be good for a laugh.

Good Idea! I'm a sucker for travel pics, so I'm following.
my phone camera isn't the greatest but it's kinda forcing me to pay attention to things and learn enough about then to write a clue.

G. Dolly Parton - 4 Sims A surefire combination--don't mess with it! ;) I almost went with the Gene Autry song for this question. Had I done that and also chosen the MLB team he used to own in my native county, I could've dodged two sheep, but noooooooo . . . Yeah at this point I pretty much always...

I really thought that Aachen, where I used to live, had fewer than 200,000 people. I guess it just seemed small.

Re: On Potent Potables

I feel like there should also be one for when someone gets a wrong answer saying "Buda" instead of "Pest" (or some similarly two-possible-choices answer) and Alex says, "oooh, sorry, you picked the wrong one."

Really surprised Hamilton or Les Mis wasn't sheep. I avoided those because I thought they'd be the obvious choices.

Re: TD 365 - clt013 (Q1-Q7 revealed)

Even getting that wrong answer I'm not doing too bad!

And I'm super annoyed because I live in TN (the "only reason I won my game", no I won't let that go) and have driven between there and LA many many times. I assumed 59 had to end in TN even though it isn't the road I start on, I guess?

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I know that sometimes there's an answer in your head you don't know why you know it, but you think you do and if you overthink that and don't buzz in right away you might be too late. But I didn't buzz in on anything except for stuff I wasn't like 90%+ sure about, except for the one time when I was...

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

One thing I've noticed about Buzzy (and this is from only seeing his ToC matches, not his regular ones) is that he seems unafraid to neg. Which is a great strategy in quiz bowl, and less good in J! It's probably why I did much better at J! than I ever did at QB. Barring endgame scenarios, if a cont...

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Buzzy seemed to be getting an unusual number of responses wrong, costing him a bit. (Went back and counted - Buzzy was first to ring in on 12 clues, Alan 13, Austin 18. Slight advantage to Austin, but pretty even.) One thing I've noticed about Buzzy (and this is from only seeing his ToC matches, no...
