"British? Hmm...shell? Beach...*conjures a mental image*...Lord of the Flies? Yeah, 1954 sounds about right." *shrug* They all count.

Re: Monday, November 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Great game. Not sold on Tim's "**** the wildcard" wager, but *shrug* no biggie. Instaget FJ. Another outdated clue thanks to the recent A.G. change. Well, it didn't say he was the current AG, just that he was the 84th (and Alabaman), though the clue might not have been that simple if he hadn't been ...

Re: Wednesday, November 7, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

20 * 15 = 300
07 * 15 = 105
300 + 105 = 405

That took every nanosecond to work out, and would've been a miss if it hadn't been a TS.

There had to be a better way to lead into Mary Ann's interview story, Alex...oh well, at least it was better than her interest in retro games. Do we really have to watch the teens? I'd rather watch more dominating performances from Mary Ann. Some troubling TSes (they really overthought that Columbus...

Sorry to see Emily go, especially on an unforced error. I haven't seen the image she butchered, but unless there's a monocle, cigarette holder, or a wheelchair, I wouldn't expect younger folks to know Truman from Roosevelt by facial features. I don't think I could. Maybe, if it was the same as the ...

Re: Friday, November 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a brutal way to go. I practically had an entire "Johnathan threw the game away by not betting more on that DD" post written in my head, and then she blurted out FDR. I was shaking my head in shock and disbelief right along with her. BRUTAL. The J! counter for games without all 61 clues gets cha...

"Don't say Grisham, don't say Gri---damnit." After years of making the same mistake, Turow's name finally stuck. Hooray! I wish I could say the same about Danube trivia. Pretty sure I've missed the last two or three FJs about it. *sigh* Anyone join me and one of the contestants on the MASSIVELY HONK...

Insta-miss with The Exorcist . I thought that maybe the syrup and melon were used to make the vomit. Not a bad idea, but for the record, The Exorcist was 1973, and the vomit was pea soup. Instaget FJ. The chocolate syrup was a dead giveaway. Why do I still remember random Harry Potter nonsense like...

Have we had a 61-clue game this season?
I count 11 out of the 36 games we've played this season. Feel free to check or correct my work. Lots of overall slow play has hurt us more often than not.

Instaget FJ.
Thanks. Hyperbole aside, this recent stretch has been very annoying.

Neill’s pronunciation of the Malory work was close enough for a correct response while no way Alex was going to let it slide without giving his own take on how to say the title. In real time, I thought for sure he had botched it badly enough for a neg. I'll have to listen to it again later. Moon ->...

Augh, people drive me crazy with that "I'm going to take a wild stab"! If you don't know, take the damn money.
Depends on how early they go for it. If someone's at 7k, and risks a couple thousand bucks for 10k and a chance at a better question, meh go for it. Most are rather foolish though.

With all of the reported misses in the game thread, Scone vs Blarney will be interesting to keep an eye on.

I wasn't exactly hoping for a tiebreaker (since the one we've gotten sucked), but...*sigh* There's really nothing I can say about any of the wagering today that wouldn't devolve into incoherent swearing. Ah, the Stone of however they pronounce Scone. I definitely missed it the last time it was a FJ ...

Out of curiosity, how many times has a contestant gone by a middle name/shortened name/nickname to resolve a naming conflict, have they ever won, and if so, did they change their name back the next day?

Not my favorite episode. Going for the top of multiple categories down 7k, then a 1500 wager on a post-LTaM warning DD...but then she wins anyway. Whatever. I was mildly surprised when no one picked up the rebound after Rock's "I Want You Babe" neg (god I hate that song. And "Believe". Thanks, J! wr...

Re: Tuesday, October 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't mind Iain Armitage at all -- he's actually a pretty good clue reader -- but...how many clues did that kid record?? Sheesh. Note to J! writers: that Stupid Answers category was a waste of time. Having newscasters read off clues is much better than random celebrity slowpokes, but don't do that...
