Re: TD 375 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 5xx (505 & 506 REVEALED)

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?

Man, I started out so strong...

I did really like how you jazzed up the standings and the race to the top with a narrative.

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...

Re: TD 359 - Remix (Q1 - Q8 revealed)

Dang! I thought Sister Sister would not be that popular! And I didn't go with Sirhan Sirhan because I thought it would be more well-known among the people who do this kind of thing.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I'm surprised the Jeanette Rankin question polled so low. Me too. I put 0 points for that because I thought it was the easiest. (I'm also a rookie so I didn't have that much info about what my opponents strengths/weaknesses would be). I guess I also need to get better at gauging what is common know...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It seems certain sectors of the J! fanbase have serious problems with sexism. Scarlett Sims was the victim of some savage comments online, ignoring the fact that she played the game of a lifetime . Thanks! I am sure I didn't see the worst of it, since I didn't even look at twitter and convinced mys...

Re: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

LT: Abruptly, Auxilliary, Dropped. I feel like every board just gets harder and harder. I'm definitely picking Alan to win. Austin just isn't as fast on the buzzer as he is, and from what Austin said about his study strategy, he knows a lot of the basic one-to-one J! answers but might struggle on st...

[*] :?: Never heard of marginal utility , guessed brand loyalty instead. Seems like a YEKIOYD giveaway to economists, unless the German word gives a literal translation. It doesn't really. I know nothing about economics and went with the translation "border use." Which I mean maybe if I knew margin...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Peaceable Kingdom (Sorry guys- my 4-year old knows this one!) Is that because of Little Einsteins? Because I think my 4 year old would also get that one. I was thinking this was the hardest match (or worst categories for me or whatever) of the ToC so far, but my coryat was 26,400. 36/3 Lach Tra...
