Re: Reretaken Down

In the DJ! round Steven had the Disney movie (and book) as "The Lady and the Tramp" and he had his score reduced after the break for a case of tough judging (that some still advocate for) in the early days with that extra "The" at the start making his response incorrect. Was this the case where Ale...

Re: Reretaken Down

Through correction suggestions I ran into an interesting case from QF3 of the 1988 ToC. http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=164 In the J! round Michael said "The Wild Ones" instead of The Wild One and had his score reduced after the judges heard the error during the break. In the DJ! round...

Re: Friday, January 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice run by John in HOLLYWOOD & LINE for 3000 to the good. What John really needed was the +4000 on the DD3 he missed that cost him the lock. That's basic art and as Alex acknowledged, Heather knew it. I suspected John was not for long at the champs's spot even if he won today as Aventine, Caelian a...

4/5 for me in PLACE-NAME NAMES as I could not recall Andy Roddick's wife in time and the TOM of "Just Go With It", her 2011 movie, was not going to help at all. That's a fair $2000 clue.

I assumed it couldn't be movies, but couldn't think of what else it could be so just kept clam.
That's what happened to me. I realized after the neg that it was probably scripts while the term "screenplays" never occurred to me.
