Re: Monday, December 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Jerry is impressive!

I picked up Lach trash on "garlic"

I got FJ, so I wasn't an "ignoramus" on that clue!

Re: Friday, December 27, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've written dozens of computer programs using the BASIC language, yet I missed "basic black" I thought the clue about Marilyn vos Savant and Parade magazine was overvalued. Marilyn has a weekly column in Parade magazine, which has the largest readership of any magazine in the U.S. at about 70 milli...

Ran the Tom/Huck category, like TPH did.

Picked up Lach trash on "Spinks" and "heart"

I got FJ, but it took me about ten seconds.

Charles Evans Hughes
The November 18 FJ! clue had Charles Evans Hughes' name in it. I wonder if that's why no one chose him for their answer. (That's why I did not.)

Picked up Lach trash on "Take 5"

I got FJ after thinking about it for a few seconds.

Re: Think Different 172: General Knowledge

I was thinking of answering "Calypso" by Harry Belafonte, but instead I sheeped the question. So instead of one point (and a singleton), I got 9 points! Better luck next time, I hope.

Re: Friday, December 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Picked up Lach trash on "cloves" and "Jimi Hendrix"

I got "text message," but only after "email" was ruled incorrect.

FJ was an instaget, even before I had read/heard the entire clue.

Re: Thursday, December 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Congratulations vs1 on your second win! I picked up Lach trash on "Samuel Pepys" and "Wayside Inn" Six clues left on the boards, including four in the DJ! round. This is the most clues left in a game in a long time. (Does anyone remember the last time this happened?) I wish the other four clues in t...

Re: Wednesday, December 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had a bad game (21/58), but I did go 5 for 5 in "M" States. I live in Maryland, so the Maryland clue was especially easy for me. However, the queen's name was Henrietta Maria, not Mary, so Maryland wasn't actually named after a Queen Mary. The clue never said it was named for a specific queen, ju...

Re: Monday, December 16, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

My best categories were 1930s Engineering Feats, and Things That Are Round: both 4/5. Picked up Lach trash on "cage" and "pitching machine" I thought Things That Are Round for $200 should have been a higher-valued clue. I got all the other clues right in that category, but not that clue. I got FJ ri...

5/5 in Indian Firsts. 4/5 in Languages, and 60 Years Of The TV Station.
Only 1/5 in the Movies category and Writer's Block.

Didn't get FJ. Wrote down "diabetes" just to have something (but
that's only 8 letters, not 10).
