Re: Wednesday, December 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The instaget of instagets. Remus -> Romulus -> Romulans (ok FINE I've watched every second of Trek and knew the Romulan star system cold, sue me). I'm kinda surprised that it was a FJ clue at all. Jolan tru, J! writers.

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

25 second solve for FJ. I was able to quickly eliminate the first five books, all of the ones named after people, and ones like Jugdes/Kings/Chronicles, and ended up with a Psalms/Ecclesiastes coin flip that landed right.

The 1-day champ carousel is starting to spin...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

For $10,000 today, a contestant had to name the disputed region between India and Pakistan. (The choices were Bhutan, Kashmir, Kathmandu, and Hindu Kush.) That seems way easier to me than what car model Oprah gave away. way easier....never heard of hindu kush...thought it was some sort of drug stra...

Re: Monday, December 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ. Italian East Africa -> Ethiopia -> Addis Ababa, done. This whole 'running out of time with one clue left on the board' thing is getting on my nerves. Anyone want to set a line on "number of online complaints received about the Bill Clinton response"? Sounded like he stuttered/stumbled a...

^The Teen Reunion Tournament in Nov. 1998 was structured to have twelve contestants play four semi-final games, but only the top three scorers of the week could advance to the final game on Friday (since Dana finished in fourth place, she did get $7,500 while all the losing contestants got $5,000)....

University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray wins the 2018 Heisman Trophy. He's the second OU QB in a row to win, after Baker Mayfield last year. Murray was selected 9th overall by the Oakland Athletics in last summer's MLB draft, and has said all along that he fully intends to quit football and ...

Anyone else run the Alex Trebek category? Identify tonsils, with an unnecessary picture on the screen to boot. Carpal tunnel, from an easy clue. Identify the Achilles, with a picture, the name origin, and remembering the story from a few years ago (that was my precall). Identify 'fusion' from 'join...

Nick did 8200+6000 on DD3 leaving 2200 on the table with 9 clues left. Nick trailed by 1400 going into the FJ! round. The other place where he could have had the lead for the FJ! round was clue 30. Nick negged $1600 taking himself out of the lead. Saves me the trouble of griping about it. Yeesh. Cr...

Re: TD 404 - Not Found (Q5-Q6 Revealed)

Earhart unused and bin Laden a singleton...*sigh* At least the coin landed on tails and I picked Scylla instead of Charybdis...a 2pt co-sheep (or really, just failing to grab a singleton on such a wide open question) on top of that would've been the pits :lol:

It would help immensely to know the matchups. Or the format, for that matter. Otherwise, not much reason to pick anything other than heavy chalk.

If I were the type to wager on FJ outcomes, I'd have lost my shirt. That category, with that date and description of events, a TS!? Maybe I just watched too many westerns as a kid. Instaget the second the date came on the screen. If Elizabeth made the cover bet and missed then she would be left at 4...

After FJ I was mad at myself. For missing, for forgetting the '90s portion of my previously-memorized lists of winners, for not piecing together that married to director + brother in law producing = brothers = Coen brothers, and also, how the !@#& did I not remember a vital bit of movie trivia like ...

Hmm...the book? Nope. The plot? Nope. The name Julian? Nope. OK, it's one of those clues. Let's see...a son writing novels in 1877, so he was probably active around mid-century, set in NH...Hawthorne? Whew. Also, why were "Siamese twins" accepted in the clue? No, I'm not complaining about "the prefe...

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.
