Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge

For #5, I assume you'll only accept drivers as correct answers, and not crew chiefs/owners/crew members, etc.?

Re: TD 410 - Iowa (Q1-Q6 revealed)

Did you mean 1997 for the Aaliyah song? That's what the Wikipedia article would indicate at least. Especially since she died in 2001 ...

I mean, I didn't know it when I was filling out my answer sheet, so it's not like it affected me. :-)

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’m counting my response of “Diddy Kong” correct for the Nintendo ape. Looked it up online and he was added to the game in September. (Never heard of the game, but every Nintendo sports/party game has the same general list of participants.) Bugged by Jessica’s wager — $0 seems like the only logical ...

Re: TD 409 - 2018 in Review (Q3-Q4 revealed)

It figures that I would forget that last year was the one year since I've been alive* that Alabama and Clemson did not meet in the CFP final.

Re: Wednesday, December 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The clues for handy reference in DO THE MATH since it's bound to be a topic of board interest: $200: It's the decimal equivalent of 1/8 $400: 9 divided by 3/4 = this $600: If  x² + 2 = 18, x = this $800: It's 5% of 400 $1000: (x + 1)² expands to this One way of doing the math in the category: $200:...

Yay! I won another match game!

I’m most amazed that I apparently correctly WAG’d eight of the pictures and yet one of my two misses was my actual answer.

Re: TD 404 - Not Found (Q1-Q2 Revealed)

Well #2 was embarrassing. I chose Poor, Poor Pitiful Me because I (obviously mistakenly) assumed that country music was a point of weakness with the board, and that maybe the singer would be unknown to some participants, but then I didn't actually include Terri! I must have gone from reading the dir...

Nothing for Paul?
It would be odd for the first apostle to be trying to kill the subsequent apostles.

Got Andrew mainly because he’s the patron saint of my church.

Re: The crisis in TDs

Recently I’ve been trying to play every week, partially since the counts have been down. I must say that the amount of multiple choice has made it more difficult for me to be able to answer a TD as a (relatively) quick aside, for example while I’m pulling a series of reports at work. While the autho...

We use the U.S. Dollar Too! Name ONE country that employs Dollarization, which is when a nation ONLY adopts the U.S. Dollar as its own currency. Not true. Dollarization is when a country adopts a foreign currency in place of their own, which may or may not be the US dollar. The US would not be a co...

TIL there’s a difference between weekly box office and weekend box office. I get "trivia", but how would anyone know which movie topped the list exactly once?

Re: TD 401 - Mini-TD #5 - Q2 RESULTS

I'll be honest, I expected to be eliminated on Q1, since I definitely don't consider WL to be a reality show, but I couldn't really define where game show ended and reality show began with some of the reality shows I was thinking of, and I couldn't think of another catchphrase anyway. I will gladly ...

For the following rule: "The score for an incorrect answer is the SHEEP score, which is the most popular correct answer for that question plus 5 points." Is there supposed to be a comma after "that question", or are five points added for anyone whose answer is the sheep? I think that you can safely...

Who said Chicago, and who said Rosemont?

Dang...I was hoping to sneak off with a low score with a recent Big Ten addition and bottom-feeder...no dice there. It doesn't help that they've been in the news for the wrong reasons recently. I know the most recent stories were from after this TD closed, but I think they're in a lot of people's m...
