Re: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Should I do another poll of my own? If so, the Madoff clue is going in it. TV categories are usually money in the bank for me, but remembering who was in what miniseries I didn't watch? Oof. How does "Hippodrome" BMS to "Circus Maximus"? Hippodrome means place for horse/chariot races. They wanted a...

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - FINAL STANDINGS

Thanks for the TD, and congrats to my fellow podium-mates. I will never, ever figure this game out. I've had a keen knack for picking sheep lately, even when taking time to think over my answers, and yet here I have my best wire-to-wire perfomance in ages, and it was in a TD I forgot about and had t...

Re: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't think Trudeau merited a BMS in this game. If 'Canadian leader Trudeau' doesn't merit a BMS just because they gave us the year, then they can pretty much forget BMSing any last name ever again. Of course, as you mentioned they went back to accepting just 'Nehru', so who the !@#$ knows what t...

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - Q7 Revealed

I've often said my musical knowledge is....well, pitiful, but this was a new low. I didn't recognize most of those songs, and the ones I did, I couldn't identify the exact title, or who sings it. I wish i could say that drop was strategic :oops: I haven't followed console video games in years, and n...

Re: Matchy-matchy???

At least once a week it seems as if I run into a word or phrase that J! writers (and the scores of boardies that get it right) think is common, but I've never heard of in my life, making me wonder if I grew up in a different country and just didn't know it. I thought I reached my quota for the week ...

Sao Tome and ____ , _____'s Charge, and the Jetson's dog for 2000? I guess they wanted high scores today. For FJ my brain spit out a half dozen authors that I knew died too early or too late, so I blurted out Beatrix Potter just to have something to say (would any of her books even count as "novels"...

Anyone have the wording on the Pope clue? I couldn't believe the BMS.
"The flag seen here represents the nation-state led by this person"

I hated that BMS. They can justify it given the wording, but with the things they let slide w/o a BMS, they had no business asking for one here.

That pope BMS was a joke. I'm pissed that they even asked, and even more pissed that it 'worked'. That Gangst er 's Paradise reversal might be the saddest thing I've seen on J! in a long time.

I managed to convince myself that the gems (never heard of sardius though) were pointing to birthstones, and that I wasn't missing anything. Was fully prepared to kick (and punch and curse) myself if it was the 12 days of Xmas. The game should come with a warning for Doctor Who fans with the photo o...

And naturally, the one occasion we see someone not bet the wad (save a buck or two) from third place, they actually *should* have.
You'll get used to it :lol:

That was not a slow round, you guys. Clear the damn board *grumblegrumble more sports clues left to die grumble*
