Re: Thursday, June 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I go to West Virginia University for grad school. Giving Zach credit for Blue Ridge was...generous.

Looks like we’ll have a day with potentially interesting TOC implications to wrap the season!

Re: Friday, April 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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? It's a reference to the Song of Roland, a French medieval epic poem about Roland getting betrayed and killed in battle. He's in that battle because h...

Re: Tuesday, April 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Based on the wording of the clue, Equatorial Guinea would have to be accepted. Nowhere does it say that the cartographic feature or that particular town are located within the country in question, nor that the entirety of the country's name comes from said feature. I didn't believe you when I first...

Not even the slightest bit of a WAG on FJ! I pored over this clue for a good five minutes and nothing stuck out as a TOM at all. What even WAS the tipoff, anyway?!
Finch, the last name of the major characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee’s most famous novel.

What a weird final. Nearly every word is irrelevant except for the last one.
Yep. Said that same thing aloud while watching. Clue could just as effectively have been “She *noise* Finch.” I suspect that Alistair and Kylie got lost in the verbose nature of the clue, unfortunately.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Somehow I’m 5-0-5 and am leading B Elysium. Only given up 2 unforced points on defense despite slightly above average offense.

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seemed unnecessarily vague for an FJ clue, maybe they thought "battlements" would steer people in the right direction? That has to be the intended TOM; knowing that a "battlement" was part of a castle. I admit that I did not know the term. I focused on "broken", trying to think of characters living...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Well now that tonight's result is in the books, I can answer a question people have been asking, but will spoiler tag it nonetheless. I'm the alternate for this year's TOC. If I don't get on this time, I'll be brought back when they run the tournament the next time. Honestly, I'd say it's a pretty g...

Re: Monday, July 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice work once again, Ryan, I thought you handled some very odd/tough DD categories very well. Especially so for whippersnappers our age hahah.. If you see this: How did you feel entering the studio for this day of taping? Tired, fresh, focused and ready to win more? :lol: Thank you! I felt pretty ...

Re: Thursday, July 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ryan here, that was my reaction too! Hence my small FJ wager. But I had told myself going in that if I hit a DD and was at all confident in the category, I’d be going big, and I’m just glad I was able to execute it! Welcome to the board Ryan, and congrats on an impressive win! Nice work playing the...

Re: Thursday, July 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My reaction to the category: "oh s%!#". So of course they give us a holiday softball: Austria, title character's death, 1823 - 32 = 1791 -> Mozart -> Amadeus, done. A game filled with good DD wagers. Maybe there is hope. Ryan here, that was my reaction too! Hence my small FJ wager. But I had told m...
