Delmarva was the best I had on Monday. I figured out that those were Vietnamese names in the clue, but forgot about the category by then. Same with the Bangkok clue, except I didn't waste time figuring out what country it was.

Re: Thursday, May 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The quote they gave was the most famous excerpt from Kennedy's most famous speech -- an electric piece of oratory that resulted in something like a 45-minute standing ovation and completely overshadowed Carter's renomination. I think it was reasonable to expect contestants to recognize it. But I'm ...

Next: The friend knew the Eiffel Tower was built first.  The friend recently stayed at the Paris in Vegas.  The friend knew there is a replica Eiffel Tower there about 500' and half the size of the real one in France.  He steered Emily towards The Eiffel Tower with fairly strong confidence.

Re: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This would be true of far less than 100% of the general public. I said "good shot at" and "probably", which is not "100%". The only one here who put a specific number on it is you, claiming "less than 10%" of average people would get that clue. That's ridiculous, as way more people know Robin Hood ...

I'll call dibs on the 5/23 episode and work on a summary to post in a bit. Sg: I'm thinking I see the game before you so I want to save you working on a similar thing. Thank you for the post yesterday as watching it once was more than enough and revisiting it for a post here would not have been fun...

Did you notice the contestant said plumbum with an unsilent B? Plum+ bum Yeah, that's how it's pronounced. On a related note, it was funny Alex corrected Josh's "antimony" pronunciation despite Josh using the common pronunciation--at least in the U.S. I've always used the standard Tom Lehrer pronun...

Re: HQ Trivia

A win on The Q this evening finally put me over $25 and into cash-out range; my Cash Show earnings are just under $100 and my HQ earnings just under $900, so that win puts me over the $1k mark for the three combined. (I mean, technically the numbers in the three apps had already totaled above it, bu...

I got two wrong on HQ today, missing the island (extra life spent) and the baseball team (knockout). My dad knew the baseball question right away. I missed last night's game - what was the baseball question? I don't have the exact wording on me, but it asked which franchise did NOT start out as the...

2010 ToC: 4 single gets and a TS in the QFs; a TS, single get, and triple get in the SFs; a TS and a double get in the finals. Likewise in this tournament (although the QF and SF get patterns didn't occur in the same order). One difference is that I did twice as well (6/10) in this tournament. It w...

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Monya is an O'Brien's Pub Quiz regular. I was worried she'd be wrong because I missed a DD on Jeopardy by saying the South China Sea, and I thought I recalled the clue mentioning Korea, so my guess was that the correct response, the Yellow Sea, is what China and Korea share. (After finishing that se...
