Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

No argument from me. But, I'm not saying that there's nothing that would lead to Dewey; instead, nothing jumps out that points definitively to him, as Alex implied. Unless you have pretty specific knowledge - like the fact that November 3 was the day after the election - either response seems prett...

How does one get Dr. Strangeglove and not strikeouts? Easy if you have zero sports knowledge, but have seen certain movies and can figure out puns. :P From where I'm sitting, knowing that K is the term for strikeouts requires much less baseball knowledge than figuring out the Dr. Strangeglove pun. ...

Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It took a while for the players to get any momentum. WTF was with running the book/movie category from the bottom up and TS'ing the first three? They were hard questions and I NHO any of them either. At first I thought Tyler would regret not even ringing in and taking a shot at the lead with the Do...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wasn't a fan of the landlocked states or the drop the "i" category, but it's hard for me not to like a board that has a clue on Titian (multiple artists did a painting of the assumption of the virgin, but I picked Titian because I have always thought his version to be the most famous). I didn't n...

Re: Monday, June 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

60's kid here and the correct response probably would have never occurred to me. Part of it was my fault because I read "die" as "dye" and focused on the various toys that involved paint or ink or colored goo. Even with the right words, we didn't have that particular toy and I don't remember anyone...

If I had my way contestants would only be allowed to work down categories. (That would also eliminate the need for calling out dollar amounts.) There was no better illustration of that than the Louvre category today we're not only were the artists progressively more difficult but there were also ve...

Re: Sad Legal News About a Former Champion

I don't know about Michigan law, but in most states, a felony conviction would bar you from voting, not to mention ruin your post-prison life. That seems incredibly excessive for entering with the door wide open. I strongly suspect (since this seems to have been a plea bargain) that a 5-year prison...

Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can't remember the exact wording of the clue, but it was a before-and-after category and the clue's target response was "glee club sandwich." For some reason, I went more specifically than generically, and blurted "Culture Club sandwich" as my response. Did that fit the clue sufficiently to have ...

I got the Meanwhile DD right, not sure how she misheard it. Every clue was about two events in different parts of the world.
Agreed -I don't think anything was wrong with the reading or wording of the clue.

Re: Thursday, June 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I overthought the brewer/governor question and answered "Thomas Jefferson". Jefferson was governor of Virginia, and he made his own beer (his brewing equipment is on display at Monticello). However, he didn't take up brewing until the War of 1812, when he was given custody over a British POW who ta...

If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times: slow the heck down on DDs. Nick didn't even bother reading, re-reading, or digesting DD2. Had he done so, he would have realized that The Well-Tempered Clavier didn't fit the "named for the Count's harpsichordist" part of the clue. Getting beaten ...

Re: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Charlotte's Web is always my precall when Children's Literature comes around. And I finally saw the movie recently after Debbie Reynolds (Charlotte) died. (Highlight: Paul Lynde as the rat...) Also E.B. White lived on a farm in Maine. (The one in the clue, natch!) So this was the most insta clue in ...
