Re: FJs for the 12/4/17 week

Yeah, you *would* have to pick 2 of the bonus clues I specifically said in the comments I didn't get, didn't you? :lol:

Love the shoutout to TPH on the very last poll option! I am actually curious to see what that number winds up being.

Re: Friday, December 8, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Does anybody have the wording for the daily double with Vietnam as the response? I guessed China for the clue. It looks like the Red River is in China and Vietnam but the clue writers called out the Red River basin which would anchor the response to Vietnam. I don't have the wording, but my fairly ...

Re: HQ Trivia

I use an Android, and thus have been unable to try it out. Sounds like a fun app, and will be excited to try it once it does expand. Can anyone who has it chime in on how the actual interface works, and more specifically, how easy it is to "game" the system? My one worry on anything that involves m...

Re: TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion [SPOILERS]

If you all enjoy being a part of dhk's "we" that thinks they're better than TPH and tells him every chance he gets, then enjoy, but after 7 years I'm getting tired of it. I've messaged david about it privately in the past but it doesn't seem to have an effect. Perhaps it's time to consider the poss...

Re: Thursday, December 7, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

P.S. Really? have none of these people ever been put to bed, or put a child to bed, and heard or recited "Now I lay me down to sleep?" …or heard Metallica's "Enter Sandman"? 8-) Here is one of the best covers of that song. Finally something I like about your musical tastes! (As you might imagine) I...

Re: TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion [SPOILERS]

I loved the "Oahu? Yahoo!!" cheer. That and his banter with Pat after he had to take away his competitor's million wedge "Can you give it to me?" were my favourite parts Remember, TPH, you have talent that many on this board don't. Speaking for me at least, I don't think you can teach that, I've wa...

Re: TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion [SPOILERS]

Mod note: I added a [SPOILERS] tag to the thread (hope that’s ok, Golf) so we can talk about the episode without worrying about tags now that it’s aired for some. (You can still use for big blocks of pictures or info like what Mark did) To riff on Cat Hammarskjold’s post, it’s too bad there’s no ret...

Re: TPH on WoF 12/8/17 discussion

I may be pretty darned good at trivia, but I'm still terrible at Wheel of Fortune. At least compared to the really great players. Same here, I’m the TPH of Wheel. (Wait does that mean I’m great at Wheel or bad at Wheel? What I mean is I am to Wheel what TPH is to J!) So looking forward to watching ...

I don't want to jinx anything, but do we call 4 6-packs in a row a case, or a two-four?
Depends on which side of the 49th you reside on.

Re: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

As someone on the board of directors of the church I attend I better have solved that FJ! clue. I’ve attended some meetings with heated discussion while it would never get to the level of unruly. As a Toastmaster, I got it instantly as well. (We use Roberts Rules of order when the executive (which ...

It bugged me the whole game trying to figure out why Matthias looked familiar. I finally got it: https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2925&p=173826 For some reason, his smiling when he was revealed as the new champ reminded me of George Takei. Are you talking about Mathias or Kyle? Ooops, that'd b...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I thought "Six Days War" was very obscure for $200. Usually war + 1960s at $200 = Vietnam. Not when Syria is mentioned, mate. That's on the other end of the continent. (Even if you didn't know that, I'm 82% sure you at least recognize Syria as "not Vietnam") Otherwise, yes, Vietnam is a cromulent g...

NHO "Lorenzo the Magnificent". Can we poll? 1. No poll. You'd be the only one. He's not the only one. I've heard the name Medici, but until yesterday I couldn't tell you a thing about him. Today, thanks to J!, I have a guess that it's a ruling family, probably in Italy. Same boat as Peter. Know a f...

Kyle shouldn't have played today. See my post on page 3 of Monday's game, December 4. Wrong. Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown. To misquote Jim Croce: you don't venture on the J!

Re: Tuesday, December 5, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got Dunedin mainly because I have a friend who lives there (and another friend who lives here who used to live there). Also figured it'd be a stand-and-stare as it's not well-known. Was close on Final, thought it either had something to do with the end of the War of 1812 or the defeat of Napoleon. C...
