Re: Friday, May 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! category narrowed the map search to a small area. During the break I made sure I knew all 8 and their states. I was ready for (at least I hoped I was) for a N-E-W-S-most type clue. It being a border type puzzle threw me for a moment although it did not take long to X out the surrounding sta...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

The $800 "WHERE AM I?" clue here: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5447

and the $1000 "WHERE AM I? clue here: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5336

are the exact same question according to the J! Archive. Is this true? Have they ever reused Clue Crew videos before?

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Add me to the list that misunderstood the clue. I was looking for an English speaking country but settled on El Salvador just to have something. Wasn't expecting to be correct. "Oporto" instead of "Porto." www.visitar-porto.com says both names are in circulation. Judges? "Oporto" sounds like a slamd...

Re: Thursday, April 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a Canadian, "Advertising" has to be my least favourite category. Luckily Capital One is a thing here and those commercials played on TV. My favorite show has been letting me down a bit recently. Charlie Parker's nickname was Bird not Birdman. It was strange. I am a jazz dork and have never seen h...

Thanks for reading this entirely too long post. Don’t be salty. Or do. I find the trolling very, very funny. Don't worry about it.

Add a third for pugilistic. And another for idiom.


Did anyone think Andrew got away with "Shiners" instead of "Shriners"? Maybe it was just me.

I was lucky and settled on the correct response at the last second on FJ. But it was mostly just a stab in the dark.

What was the hint I was missing?

In the music category, Vampire Weekend was completely unfamiliar, Queen I got, and the other three I recognized as frequent Sporcle misses.
The lead singer of Vampire Weekend, Ezra Koenig, is married to Rashida Jones. Just a piece of trivia that might come in handy sometime.

Re: Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's spelled slalom but pronounced slolom. The first syllable rhymes with "fall", not the first part of "phallus". I would assume Canadians typically pronounce it the second way . Kami is listed as being from St. Louis but I'm wondering if she grew up in Canada. Nope. That pronunciation sounded ver...

I guessed nothing on that crystal clue because I didn't know whether it was Waterford or Swarovski. After a quick search it sounds like Swarovski would be the one associated with figurines. I'll to remember that one. I missed with Alberta and Saskatchewan--I knew that the Northwest Territory was big...

33,800 coryat but 0/3 on the DDs, yikes. I don't think they sell Dove chocolate bars in Canada. If they do, I've never seen them before. I had nothing before Kyle quickly said Neiman Marcus. Maybe if he takes a few more seconds I'm able to get it in time. The 18 miles info really narrowed things dow...

From the daily discussion thread today you said Adoration of the Magi in art didn't ring any bells: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adoration_of_the_Magi Historically it was a common art subject.

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was surprised at no Dan Quayle clue in a Vice Presidential Quotes category.

TPH, "adoration of" in relation to art is what leads to "Magi". Could possibly be "adoration of the shepherds" though.

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges?

Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer?

It's 2040 and Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has just celebrated his 100th birthday. James Holzhauer's daughter is a 30-day champion and selects the first clue of the game:

"I'll take Broadway for $2000, Alex"

"And now a clue from TV's Young Sheldon, Iain Armitage."
