Re: Tuesday, March 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mike still seems a bit stiff at times. Even Ken seemed better at getting the hang of drama, so even big leads like this don't seem as fun as they used to. I may be mainly a keyboardist, but I'm also enough of a guitarist for Guitar Talk to have been an easy run. I am curious as to how many people he...

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

You know what, let's just lock this thread. If I'm not keeping my own score anymore, then there's less for me to get frustrated about, and less to ask "but how did you even know this about", and less for LITERALLY EVERYONE ON THIS FORUM -- including the person whose name is in the thread -- to get s...

Re: Monday, March 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've long thought that pangram should be replaced by the more elegant "Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz". Back in the 1990s, I would sometimes muck around in the System Folder on my old Mac. I found that if you opened up any of the fonts, it would display the sentence "How razorback jumping fr...

Re: Monday, March 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Loved the Johnny Gilbert tribute. I would hate to see him go almost as much as I hated to see Alex go, but I trust that any successor will be chosen with care in either case. Also loved seeing a clue about Cards Against Humanity. I miss playing that at Midwest FurFest with my friends. And then they ...

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

What are you trying to accomplish? I legit am trying to learn. Deep down, I do want to learn. Which is why I keep asking. I just can't ever seem to get out of my own way no matter how hard I try. Literally every method on the planet ends in abject failure and frustration for me and those around me....

Ran Toys & Games and "Orial", but 0/5 in Numbers and Baseball Nicknames. NHO either of the Oxfords named in that clue for my only miss in that Road Trip category. Surprised myself by getting 3/5 in Opera. Said Aida for Carmen at $400, no clue on the DD. Also 0/5 in 17th Century Literature and got on...

Explicitly saying there is a "long" version of the weapon means the more common version is "short"
Can't say I've heard of a short bow either.

To me, it just seemed like a descriptor.

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

People who are good at Jeopardy often get clues right where they don't actually know the answer because they can follow hints/guideposts in the clue. Or they're familiar with the general answer range that Jeopardy asks about. Very rarely could the answer be "literally anything." If that were the ca...

I assume Mike Richards wouldn't have to confer with the judges to give me credit for "The Tube" for "The Underground", since I think he studied in England at some point....although to be honest, I'm not 100% sure I'd get the non-colloquial response in time if I'd been BMSed. I don't think there's a...

Re: Thursday, February 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is 17 clues the most ever played before the break? Ran First Name's the Same and Chicken Nuggets. Businesses for $200 was EPIC negbait for Lysol, and of course I bit. Strangely 0/5 in "Round" the World. I don't know where the disconnect was, but I just couldn't piece the clues together at all. Histo...

Still nothing compared to this trainwreck of a round: Damn ... that's harsh. 'Button sky", sure, that's wrong, but most of the others were fair. I think at the end Pat just decided that "close enough" was finally reached. Counter argument: (6:45 if the timecode doesn't work) https://www.youtube.com...

I remember seeing a Wheel of Fortune episode almost 20 years ago where the answer to the puzzle was "Francis Ford and Sofia Coppola". The contestant had the whole puzzle filled in, but was ruled wrong because she said it "cuh-POH-la". Even at the time, I knew who both of the people in the puzzle we...

Mike felt a bit more animated today. I loved the "do a different category" exchange. Why do I keep thinking that Alexander Hamilton was a president? I make that mistake every time Burr comes up. "O ring" was my only NHOI/miss in Plumbing. 0/5 in Soldiering On. I got only $400 in Horse & Writer and P...

Not a glimmer of hope for me in TV Show Quotes. Can't say I've heard of Blacklist, Black-ish, or Silicon Valley (the show) before. Was also 0/5 in Swords. Critically acclaimed movie + critically acclaimed sequel is a match I can always make to the Godfather movies. It took me nearly the entire music...

I've seen Mike host before. He's pretty good. You can tell he's hosted game shows before and he seemed reasonably comfortable here. Ran Celeb Chef and Animals Within Words, but was 0/5 in Political Slang. I clammed on "Grass roots" since I thought it was one word, but had no idea on the rest. Was al...
