Re: Think Different 182 -- 2 Out of 5

Just six hours to go now before the deadline for entering (at noon Eastern Time). We're up to 39 participants now. Can we make it to 40? It will take just one more person, but there's certainly room in this game for more than 40!

Re: Question for current/future TD "hosts"

Would like any feedback y'all might have, and if anybody wants to volunteer to "beta test" (i.e. score their normal way in parallel with my workbook), let me know. I would be willing to test your scorer using my current TD data (for TD 182). It would be interesting to see how the two sets of scorin...

Re: Friday, March 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Thad won with only $2400, and Matt got almost that much ($2000) for second place. But a win is a win, no matter how large or small.

Picked up Lach trash: "Lawrence of Arabia", "Frederick the Great" and Joseph Priestly"

Didn't get FJ. I thought of 5 actors, but none of them was Olivier.

There are 25 entries so far, with 41 answer pairs remaining unused (out of 200 possible pairs). One question still has 7 unused pairs and another has 5 unused pairs. Four questions have no more unused pairs, five questions have only one unused pair, and three other questions have two unused pairs. S...

I got these and also "St. John the Baptist", "sea change", "Algeria" and "elder" -- the most Lach trash I've picked up in one game in quite a while.

Didn't get FJ.

Re: Think Different 182 -- 2 Out of 5

So those of us who have submitted have been sheeping pretty badly? That's quite usual for me. The questions with several unused pairs are questions that a lot of people are dropping. And there's one question that several people have gotten wrong, so that one still has some unused pairs. I haven't n...

Re: Tuesday, March 11, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Arthur did much better in the DJ! round than in the J! round. He had more wrong answers than usual, but he still won. He's really a superb player.

Picked up Lach trash: "Rainbow Bridge", "razorback", "hippopotamus", "robot"

Didn't get FJ.

Arthur won again with a lock game, even though he missed his first two Daily Doubles (and lost $7,000+). This shows how strong a player he is, to come back from adversity like that. Picked up Lach trash on "Psycho", "recreation", "Troilus and Cressida" and "Cinderella" Didn't get FJ. I guessed Marvi...

Clarifications: Question 10. It has been pointed out to me that there is disagreement over which mountain is the highest in Europe, depending on how Europe's borders are defined.
