Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I assume "dulcet" is a no-go on Speak Softly for $600? FWIW, I also said "dulcet" I also had "dulcet" A fourth for dulcet And baby makes five! I'm taking points away from everyone because dulcet does not sync with the category, SPEAK SOFTLY. Hushed, muted, murmur and what were the other two? I also...

Re: Wednesday, October 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm not afraid to admit what I don't know: NHO Mengele. I paused on that clue and thought, "Should I know this??" I had to turn on subtitles to get the spelling. Overall, the WWII era is a real weak spot for me. A friend recommended "The Second World War" by Anthony Beevor, so I bought the book but...

Re: Wednesday, October 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm a little late to the party, but I don't follow shoretegic wagering. Could you please elaborate? The scores going into final were 15,200 / 10,800 / 13,200. How is 8,410 better than 8,401 from 2nd place? This wasn't a Shore's Conjecture game; Shoretegic wagering is when first place recognizes sec...

Re: Wednesday, October 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That's the kind of game I love to see: three evenly matched, good quality players, all with a realistic chance going into the final. The kind of game I hate to see anyone lose. And capped off by three absolutely spot-on correct FJ wagers. Well done, all. Bill was wary to pad his wager by $9, to avo...

Nice one day, morbeedo. Still kicking myself about a couple of my answers.
Thanks. Can I kick you, too? ;)

One Day Special - Curses - coming this Saturday. Putting the final touches on my 12 question set. Please come and play! Mulvaney's on there; too bad Trump isn't. This is right up his alley! Confused.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How is the current ML and recent 1Ds going for the rest of you? I'm 0 for 2 on the ML thus far. It wouldn't have gotten me a win yesterday (I find using the Golden Arches theory in a theme of pop culture just because it involves McDonald's to be pushing it, but I digress), and as a big fan of comic...

Re: Monday, September 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Arguably only the True West clue required knowledge of the play. The "civics" document was a coin flip What the Constitution Means to Me closed before I could get there, but boy oh boy, I'm glad I made it to True West. Crazy play! and sadly I missed the last go around with Philip Seymour Hoffman / ...

Re: Monday, September 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That is the kind of exciting game I like to watch. That was the kind of FJ that I like ... didn't know it offhand, but managed to figure it out. I knew Algarve because I was there this summer. They have a lot of cork trees, and Portugal is well-known for cork. Surprised that was a TS. Never heard o...

I realllllly hate to see this https://i.imgur.com/EOxraOR.jpg But I applaud the players for running the category, although 2 of the clues required no knowledge of the plays. I went 3/5 in terms of number of plays I've actually seen. I do love Laurie Metcalf but I wasn't in the mood for Hilary and Cl...

Re: Friday, September 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just couldn't get there on that DD3. Of course I know the expression, "dyed in the wool", but I guess I was looking for a single word to fit the clue and couldn't get past obdurate, which made no sense. Needed more time! My 2 cents on Gabe - it was the buzzer that did him in. I wouldn't dismiss hi...

    I wrongly assumed "role" was pointing toward a scripted show and said Jerry Orbach.
    I was one of the 11% who said Google, so at least you had a TV show in mind.
    Gotta admit, that Google MCWA made me do a spit take!
