Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

Depending how lenient the "judges" are, about 33-35. Usual for me. *sigh*

Re: Thursday, May 25, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Aargh! We had two categories on millennial pop culture then a FJ on a cartoon that only millennials would recognize. Ahem — considering the Turtles were first created in the comics in, as the clue said, 1984, and the first (and best) cartoon premiered on TV in 1987, I think the age range is a LITTL...

Re: Thursday, March 30, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought FJ might be Hair, but a quick date check immediately showed me that 1985 was way too late, so I got to the right answer in time.

Any whole-game themes I'm not aware of?

So I was thinking about the game where almost all the correct responses (and potentially, all the categories) were seven letters long , and the game where all the categories were named after movie quotes, culminating in the FJ category being AFI Top 100 Movie Quotes . Are there any other examples of...

Re: Monday, January 23, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't think FJ was difficult. It was downright poor/misleading. I've read the play, the circumstances surrounding it, AND watched the movie, and I'm not sure in what way the 1933 song "inspired" it. Okay, Wikipedia claims the title is a reference to the Disney song, although in the play, it's jus...

Re: FJs for the 9/26/16 week

Anyone else know Berlin Alexanderplatz from a one-off joke in the animated series The Critic?

Because I did.

Ehh, I don't really associate the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme with Carroll specifically over any other reference, so I was led astray.

I nearly talked myself out of the FJ answer because I thought, if an atomic clock couldn't tell you the time of day, what else would it do? I finally stayed with it because I had nothing else.

Just out of curiosity, was the "living actor" part a TOM, or is there a deceased actor in at least six films on the list?

Started out strong, stumbled near the middle.

I think that's the best I've felt about a test in a while. We'll see if it's enough, though.

But only if they're "famous," as per the category name.

Although I suppose you could nitpick that too... :)

Re: Tuesday, November 10, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Also, I learned cryptic crosswords differently. I thought they were two-part clues like "Tragic arrangement in A-flat" (5), where both "tragic" and "arrangement in A-flat" are hinting toward fatal, as "tragic" is the more direct half of the clue, and "arrangement in A-flat" indicates that the word ...

Random thought: can the knowledge that ToCs (at least these days) never have pop culture FJs help at all in strategy and/or planning? My first impulse was yes, but now that I think about it, probably not...?

P.L. Travers would've loathed the fact that most of us found this FJ so easy solely because of the Disney movie. :)

I'm surprised Alex didn't remind us to watch the premiere of Supergirl tonight. Well, there was Seas for $2000... Never heard that before, I was irritated she wasn't docked...Also irritating that Tom, when given three blanks also enunciated by Alex, says " then beggars would ride..." Yeah, I notice...

Re: Friday, July 24, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So would "Icelandic Air" be okay? And if the judges already knew that the clue could be interpreted as either "This [[small land's]] airline" or "This [[small land's airline]]," why wasn't the clue just reworded so it could only refer to one? Or did they only think about that aspect of it after the ...

Hah, because of the wording of the quote, I spent the entire time trying to think of women who dressed up as or masqueraded as men. Kept me from going obvious (though I'm not sure I would've remembered that Susan B. Anthony was put on trial — I should have, though, thanks to... the Powerpuff Girls).

Yes, I assumed that "hit" was supposed to be a TOM, NOT to exclude an alternate answer.
