Re: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can someone name a "famous...speech" given by Paul Revere? Or really, any other famous speech associated with the early revolutionary period? I'm not coming up with one offhand...So yes, this was a little tricky since the speech was delivered in Virginia by a Virginian...but I couldn't come up with...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Andrew, what can I say? It was a risk well worth taking, and it didn't pan out for you, unfortunately. The expected value was definitely there. It sucks to gamble with that much money, but it was entirely justifiable. And you get a lot of Mouse money, too, to help salve that wound. https://i.imgur....

Alex got in some razor work after the Monday game: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1848/30892470428_a4482428bb.jpg Emily over-complicated DD3 and it cost her the match.

I missed this game, and sad to do so, because this is the first time I've known someone before he/she was on the show. I won't get too specific on here for various reasons, but I used to know Riley's family when I was in undergrad years ago, and I can't say enough nice things about them--they're gr...

Tough game for Riley with other than the chat with Alex, not heard from until clue 22. She did beat Andrew to the Canadian city clue for one moment in the sun. The FJ! category had me hoping for something in the big sports while knowing there were plenty of other possibilities. The clue left me torn...

Yay, Lauren got the Lauren clue. Alex had to announce two more scoring changes with Lauren getting docked 4000 at DD3 and then gaining 3200 before the FJ! clue reveal. I was sure the penalty was coming and I suspected the gain was coming when I heard the responses. The players were 1/6 on the big cl...
