I think I'm missing this reference.
It's a reference to Star Trek III.

You missed a great opportunity to do a question on videogames with Genesis.
Or planets that are forbidden.

Re: How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Are there any restrictions for being on Millionaire if you've been on Jeopardy before? You can be on one year after your airdate. Are you going on the show soon? I went to the Boston open call so I have my fingers crossed :D Yup, 46% of the audience also thought it was a Scottish castle, so it's OK...

Re: How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

I read through the Bored archives as much as I could and learned what kind of questions they asked. A lot of questions rely on context clues and logically eliminating choices. One thing the producers stress is that the answer must satisfy all parts of the question, so look for clues within the ques...

Re: How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

I don't think there's much you can do except watch the game religiously so you get a feel for the questions, and continue to pay attention to the world around you. I don't think there's much else you can do specifically. Used to be able to cram to a lesser degree than Jeopardy because in the Regis ...

How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

I am familiar with getting in shape for Jeopardy. There are enough areas of general knowledge that a player can know to target to develop a reasonable knowledge base in order to be competitive. How then, does one prepare for Millionaire? While Jeopardy involves general knowledge, millionaire is extr...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

Sometimes I'm in awe of Thorsten's question writing abilities. The Che Guevara one is a case in point. Enough information to get you there, but not enough to make it obvious. It was a real light bulb moment for me. I was certain it was Hemingway. I put down Jacques Cousteau. French ship, Cousteau w...

Re: TD 344 - LOL (Final results)

Great game clt, very enjoyable.
One suggestion I would make is to extend the closing time for your td entries to Monday evening. This allows for more entries and something fun to do to start the week.

More importantly, I wanted to know who would be interested in playing with me on a quiz bowl team and for trash of the titans. More trash i...
