Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well, that's more like it. Accepting "dulcet" means I ran the Speak Softly category.

Also means that even with 6 negs, 3 of which were in that infernal Louisiana category, I still have $23,000 Coryat.

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Yes, there are December 3-4 tapings on the website calendar that are "available soon". Secretly hoping I get called for one of those, but I'll be happy to just snag some audience tickets and use my Southwest miles to fly out! TMZ says today full steam ahead for Alex taping shows. https://www.tmz.co...

Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For some reason, WNEM aired an ad for J! in the first commercial break, which featured a clue from a previous episode. I assume "dulcet" is a no-go on Speak Softly for $600? Anyone else think that Bayou for $1,000 was HUGE HUGE HUGE negbait for "beaver"? I've NHO the nutria before, and for me to hav...

In that case, I've heard the word multiple times but it never registered
Much how like I never knew what "siege" meant. Even if I did, that clue seemed very circuitous.

Could not for the life of me remember Ray Charles' name, costing me the run How is it you're unfamiliar with his #1 album? Oh, I know the album. I think my brain was trying to pull Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles at the same time and it jammed the signals. Either that or I was thinking of Metamodern ...

Geoff really had a rough day. So many negs. ==== Best WAG of the day: fishy name = Trout. No idea how I pulled that one off. Ran the Monkey category. Could not for the life of me remember Ray Charles' name, costing me the run in Piano. All but $1,000 in Breakfast (NHO that roll in $1,000) and "Ho"cu...

Re: Thursday, October 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Siege" is one of those words I've heard a billion times but had absolutely no idea what it meant. I almost went with "Latin standoff" there. Can't say I've heard of a "spinning wheel" before (at least not in the textile sense), with a weird "all but the top box" in Cotton of all things. Derped up L...

The title given rings not the faintest of bells for me. That's because you have excellent taste in country and western music and Simon has writt...

Re: Wednesday, October 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lost the rugby/soccer coinflip on Kiwi for $400. That seemed like negbait. I thought Auckland was the easiest in Kiwi, but that may be because I was precalling it in Not the Capital. 4/5 in Flex, "OK", and Numberw, missing hyperextended (said "over-" instead), "woke" (NHOI), and whatever $1,000 was ...

Re: Tuesday, October 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Don't think I've ever seen Alex hint at a score change like that before. I ran Many Hands and "Ra Ra", and got all but Omaha Steak in Meat Industry. So of course a great J! round means a lousy DJ! round for me. I, too, was baffled on the Computer DD. I couldn't think of anything to guess. Viola is a...

Re: Monday, October 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For some reason I was very neg-happy today. I had 4W at the first break, two of which were Ranks & Titles. Luckily I made up for it by running Video Games and Anagrams. Places of Business for $400 seemed poorly pinned. I went with "Exercise" and took the neg because that seemed too generic. How the ...

"Don't say St. Louis, don't say St...damnit". The Pony Express/St. Joseph connection strikes again. When's the last time a contestant got that right? September 6, 2002. Ask me how I know. It's not like Missouri doesn't have at least three prominent cities beginning with "St." Is this the new OxCam?

I also think that 3 Oranges clue was grossly overvalued as written.
I saw the oranges but didn't think to add the "3" to the correct response so I stayed clam.
