Re: Thursday, December 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But I'm not sure it would have helped since I do not associate the Battle of the Little Bighorn with North Dakota. The battle site is on a reservation in southern Montana. I thought about that, but the "on assignment" made me think he had went somewhere else, so the date and proximity mad...

For once, an instaget.

For planned cities, I pretty much thought of Brasilia, Canberra, and -- because I lived 5 miles away -- Levittown, NY, even though the name gives it away that it isn't a city.

Don’t think I have ever heard of that organization. Nor I. Again, I miss the obvious. I had "cities" from villes and -städte , but didn't make the connection with partner - Fantastic game, Pam. You went all-in in the first round, as you should have. I probably would have went all-in in DJ...

It normally is pronounced with the 't'.

Game's running long, so I'll assume total pre-emption.

I know French for rabbit is lapin, so that makes this pretty easy.

I considered Brussels and almost went with it. But Amsterdam seemed better for canals and ice skating and Hans Brinker and everything. I did choose Amsterdam over Brussels despite the French name rather than because of it. Still, it's not implausible that the Huguenots got to name a canal or two. I...

Been to Amsterdam, knew it wasn't that.

Due to the French part, I flipped a coin between Bern and Brussels and went with the latter.

Lee was easy. Never was coming up with Capote. Best I could come up with for the other author was "not Faulkner".
