Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Another fun Frank moment was the obvious distaste with which he responded, "What is Twilight?" My 22-year-old daughter got a kick out of that since she read those books back in the day and is now fatally embarrassed by that period of her life. Interesting overlap in the SJ clue asking about the job ...

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nice pull on Dixon Hill! I couldn't have come up with that. I gave the correct holodeck response even though I was momentarily distracted by Trebek's failure to pronounce the final d in "Picard". I don't know French at all, so I'm not sure if that pronunciation makes sense. I just know it's NOT the...

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had a similar "let's make it too complicated" moment with one of the fedora clues. All they wanted was "holodeck" but I went past that and spent my time trying to dredge up "Dixon Hill," the character Picard liked to role-play with the fedora on the holodeck. Wasn't able to recall the name until ...

Penguin hiatus 2018

My annual retreat is upon us. Today is my last day on the board until Monday, April 2. I'll be going dark after tonight's game. I'll still be reachable via PM (or, of course, shining the Penguin signal in the night sky). I think. Gmail started marking JBoard notifications as spam. I think I've got t...

If you google George Levick and penguins, you can read about the "bizarre" activities he discovered. I didn't post the link because of the sentivities of a specific board member.

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm still dumbfounded that "identify Nebraska on a map" got greenlit to be a $1600 clue. That's a $200 Kids Week clue. Some of the production staff have Nebraska ties. Could it be sentimental valuation? Or maybe the reverse--an exasperated acknowledgement that nobody knows anything about their home...

And those wagers - yikes. It's like they found a group that's never watched the show before - including Marty.
To be fair, Marty's shows hadn't aired yet, so he didn't have a reason to watch.

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The wording led me to a car and the Edsel. Marty was the only one to get it right. I wonder if this is one that skews to an older crowd, though Marty isn’t old enough to have seen one. I remember hearing about the Edsel from my dad. Maybe the knowledge got passed down to my generation but we didn't...

Re: Thursday, February 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

For the "First Name Verbs" clue "To make your way through not-so-deep water", I had "Ford" instead of "Wade". Thoughts? There many people with the first name Ford (besides F. M. Ford)? True it doesn’t say it has to be a *common* name (and that opens a big can of worms), but I’d neg it. How many do ...

Congrats to Sean for another commanding performance. I figured Quin's best bet was $0, but that's hard to do, psychologically. Still. A $0 bet potentially lets Nabila ahead of him, but it wins on a TS or a double-stumper for Sean and Nabila. And if Sean misses FJ (which has to happen for Quin to win...

First of all, I think they have to have Ryan back. There are two different schisms that I referred to some times as great schisms. 1054, with the mutual excommunications (partly justified by Filioque ) and the schism of the 14th century which was a schism based on two claimants to the papacy The cl...
