Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

No way was I going to figure out "European Union" nor Dardanelles = Turkey or Doctor J in the top box.

And there goes my chance at my second ever 5/5, because I sat on this one for a good 45 minutes and didn't even have a valid WAG.

Re: Monday, June 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So from what I'm gathering that GDP clue was just a garbage clue?

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sinatra for $200 was a terrible clue. All three contestants "went for the obvious" when Pavloving "New Jersey city" and all three missed. I probably would've needed at least eight more guesses before getting to Hoboken. That was an easy World History category. Can't say I've heard of Robespierre, wh...

Re: Monday, June 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

There's such a thing as a "GDP gross"? Isn't that what the G stands for? Can someone explain the thought process on that clue, because I don't get why it was reversed. Any reason I should know the Russian Revolution was in February 1917? I read a lot of comics, and have NHO "bleed" in that context. ...

Have seen Lion King. If I read Charlotte's Web, I was very young and don't remember.

Re: Friday, June 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I bit on the "Anachronism" negbait to end up 4/5 in Words About Words. Couldn't think of anything in a car that would be "intermittent". Domain was a clever category but I couldn't noodle any of them. Whiffed with "today" on the first one, no idea on the rest. "Virginia Military Institute" joins the...

We're at 0/9 getting it and 8/9 taking a guess.
9/9. I did put down Gemini to have something, figuring "two" was the key word. Right book, wrong page.

Re: Thursday, June 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Pre-empted on WNEM, so of course neither my DVR nor their online schedule reflects this. How many freaking "Better Deals" shows do we need in a year anyway?! I used to play a match-three game called Snood, but the meaning of the name must've eluded me over the years. Can't say I've heard of the word...

Didn't recognize anything at all in that Library category. Didn't know there even WAS a Brown University, or whatever that library was at $400. I ran the "Back" and Singers categories. Me on Back for $400: "What is Farmers, bum ba dum ba bum bum bum?" Me on Back for $600: "What is Chiliiiii's baby b...

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

Sometimes you just need to guess. Like today, you said you were deciding between Charlotte's Web and Babe, but didn't choose either because you weren't sure if either was right. I actually scrolled down and looked at the clue early by mistake around 5, so it was fresh in my head. At first glance, I...

I'm getting too dumb to play along anymore. I have no idea where the Danube is.

Why TPH is in another FJ! funk: 5/7: A lot of people seemed to struggle with this.

Couldn't think of anything for FJ! Six inches seemed too far apart for a trombone, and didn't seem right for a tuba either. I pondered if maybe an early saxophone was that big. I was still trying to grind this one out when the music ended, leaving me with nothing. HOW WAS THIS A TRIPLE GET?!? If on...

Re: Monday, June 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My DVR had a weird glitch. I turned on WNEM and for some reason, even though it said it was recording, it wouldn't let me rewind to the beginning of the show. Nor would it let me access the episode from the Episodes folder. Then it DID Show up in the Episodes folder... claiming to be J!, but actuall...

Re: FJs for the 6/4/18 week

Some nights I stay up deciding whether or not I should make a rock band whose name is just a left parenthesis.

I could be the opening act, and ) would be the closing act.

How was I supposed to know that was bronze? I ran the Squirrels category, although I was tempted to clam on $1,000 to keep my pride. "Utopia" was the only one of those "U" words I recognized. Ran the Song Time category. I like the songs named in $400, $1,200, and $2,000. Lach Trash: South Dakota, Ve...
