Previous uses of GEOGRAPHIC TERMS in the FJ! round wanted: landlocked, peninsula, altitude & latitude, and Latin America. Proper noun places are possible, but the pattern seems to more often indicate a generic term and not specific place.

Down from Prairie B to Prairie C and my second crack at DHK who referred me to LL. 34 in the group with top 4 up to B. Hope the 8 I don't play are good ones to avoid. HittM & WarwickB are J! Board members to help with their defense against me.

I'll admit I thought it was Jane Jetson also. It was fandom vs. strategy as it pained me not to name the Brady kids and instead try to score better naming the Dunphy children. A point's a point.

Hermine opened with the run in MUSICAL GROUPS. Alex: …You found your niche. Hermine: That was the one. No, she was correct on a lot of other stuff too.

Another excellent outing by Josh Hill, including a sole get on a tough FJ. My girlfriend and I disagreed on whether the 1964 in his winning total was a reference to his birth year or not. She thinks he is way too young for that. Yeah, I'll take under age 54 as well. I'll even take under age 34. How...
