Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So the building of a home in German is "Hausbau"? If it's "Bauhütte" as fikklefame says, it should be the changing of A syllable. Google Translate turned the English "house building" into "Hausbau." Bauhütte is a term for a mason guild. It would appear the coinage was intended to refer to both thin...

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FikkleFame explained it, but "switching the syllables" implies reversing it, and only one was changed anyway.

EDIT: What was the strategy Lori used for betting, anyway?

I was born in 1983 and consider myself a millennial. 1976 seems too early IMO.

Coroner and medical examiner are close enough to equal IMO.

Who are these judges anyway?

Re: Monday, May 8, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For the FJ! clue I get that DoE and Indy woman may not be known things to peg to a year. What had me shaking my head was two guesses that were not “sworn in” years. Come on now even with lights, stage, pressure etc. that should not happen. I figured someone would come up with the election year, as ...

Even though it's been almost 12 years since I read Dante's Inferno , I was sure that I would get the correct response, because here are the only things that I suspect J! would ask about: 1. Limbo 2. One of the Seven Deadly Sins and/or its punishment (with plenty of clues keying you in) 3. Some othe...

Got all of the Grafton ones exccept "Trespass" (really, the first thing you think of when you think of "trespass" is what was in the clue??? :roll: :roll: :roll: ).
Got Oklahoma, and that was it. I didn't even try the rest.

37 (I didn't know "outlawry" was a word):
I got outgoing and the Survivor one.
I got Doubleday, Damn Yankees, and George Will, but guessed Vincent instead of Giamatti (the latter was only there a few months).

Not exactly sure why people are saying "Earl Warren" was a trick. It's not exactly obscure knowledge that there were two consecutive chief Justices with Warren in their name. By far the thing Earl Warren is most famous for was heading the Warren commission, which investigative the Kennedy assassina...

Re: 2016 Summer Hiatus Challenge - Round 1 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

I still think I should get credit for "dumb" for the "drab" one. Literally, reading Shakespeare backward IS dumb; and I've heard dull refer to a not-so-smart person. It's stretching it, but IMHO acceptable. Day 6: 19. Got Elizabeth, Beatty, and the OITNB one; fell for the Earl Warren trick :oops: (I...
