Re: FJs for the 2/15/21 week

:( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( No guesses Monday or Tuesday. Unfamiliar with August Wilson's work and his name was unfamiliar, and thinking of places in India but didn't guess the Taj Mahal. "Ore" might have led me to saying aluminum instead of iron, but I don't really think so. Watche...

Forgot the category on the capital of Croatia.

Had the novel right away. Matched Michael in guessing the wrong city. Considered St. Petersburg but couldn't talk myself into changing.

:( :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :( :( :( :mrgreen: Spain/Cyprus; was going back and forth between Spain and France, good to know even if I'd gotten that right I'd still have been way off. Hickok (sure of) and Cody (needed two names). I would never have guessed a military man. Belfast, the only Northern Ir...

I have probably stayed at a Motel 6, but can't say for sure.
Don't think I've made it as far north as Sacramento. Definitely not Carson City.
And yes, Quebec.

"The Russian space dog," I forget what I guessed Thursday

Viva clicked first, then I filled in the rest.
I don't know whether I've held The Very Hungry Caterpillar or not.
Have not seen any of The Queen.

Re: Friday, January 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I kind of hate this final. The birth year of Prince Edward just seems like a completely useless hint. The birth years of her 4 children are 1948, 1950, 1960, 1964. Despite the two posters above bizarrely claiming they just know Edward was born in 1964, that is not any kind of clue to the vast major...

I assume my affiliate is going to air this tonight and the announcement was just poorly spellchecked. It's possible there's some show called Jeaporday that was supposed to air yesterday but was also preempted.

Re: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Something that occurred to me--what's the procedure if a wrongly-ruled-correct response that's not discovered until a few clues later enables a player to get the Daily Double? Do they go back and replay from that point? What do they do about the fact that the DD's location has been revealed? They c...

Re: Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Recognized the Final the second I saw it. When it first aired, after dismissing Joan of Arc as making no sense, I realized who it was, who she'd killed, the fact that she killed him in his bathtub, the painting by David... everything about it except the names of the two people. I forget what I ended...

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( Louis Pasteur to not leave it blank. I generally play off the Clue of the Day, so I didn't have the accent to help Tuesday. Still an instaget. Dre(a)d Scot(t) clicked eventually. San(d)ford never would have. All five games were new to me this week.

Frustrating day with names. Couldn't come up with David Lynch, Roman Polanski, or "Cheetah" Rivera (the last would have been something I was surprised to get, but I should have been able to name), and barely came up with Dred Scott before the buzzer (I would have never gotten Sanford). The term I've...

Welp. I knew the clue was pointing at someone's nose, but I had no idea where to go from there. Said Tycho Brahe to have something (I mean, it's not inconceivable they made a play about him...).

In DJ!, found Minced Oaths to be a tough category, and negged with (sticky + variant of 'damnation' + derived from 'eternal' --> tarnation). I've gone back to that one a few times now and am not seeing how to pull 'carnage' out of that. Tarnation is right (and what Brayden said); carnage comes from...

Other than Leviathan, I also wondered if aurochs were ever mentioned in the Bible. Never thought of unicorns as a symbol of strength.
I said aurochs because I was more certain it's not Leviathan. I'm counting it wrong, but reading Wikipedia on re'em, I'm not sure I wouldn't have a case.
