Re: Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was good to get back to a new game, though I did enjoy seeing the first-ever Zerg-cam shot :mrgreen: Lots is Lach trash, especially in Songbook and Bible, neither noted strong points of mine. Instaget FJ — inn pretty sure that the SFR-Crusoe connection was used in a LL question a few seasons ago,...

Re: Learned League 84

Theatre MD6 Q6 While tragedies were not uncommon during the Restoration period of English theater (1660-1700 AD), the period is best known for what witty three-word theater style that satirized the affectations of people and often their entire social classes? I struggled with this one. I get what t...

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Silly me. When I can confidently answer a movie FJ, I assume that at least 2 of the contestants will get it. Color me surprised at the outcome. It looked to me like Sarah was getting outbuzzed pretty consistently this game, but stayed in it courtesy of her deeper knowledge base and better discipline...

Re: Learned League 84

Given that I had a crush on Stevie Nicks growing up, I truly appreciated the first two questions yesterday although by then I had clinched my rundle anyway. My best gets of the week were probably Fanny and "Magnet and Steel". I was surprised so few people got "Magnet and Steel," but I suppose it is...

The cat, of course, refused to come out of the box, thereby stymying all attempts to determine his state.

Ah yes, that's what I remember. So the e-mail should still be valid. Thanks.

So? "Yesterday" is the most covered, and I bet you not a single soul could name any of the artists who have done any of said covers. Or anyone who's ever had sucess with a Beatles cover ever. Why in the world would you even post this nonsense? Just because something is a blind spot for you, don’t p...

With a combined Coryat of $45K, this game was well-played by any standard and Nibir certainly impressed. Tyler and Xiaoke were no slouches, but Nibir was good enough to make them look bad at times. I’ll be very interested to see how he fares in the TOC. Roland was enough to get me to FJ tonight, but...

And yet... here we all are talking about WWTBAM again. If the purpose of this exercise was to generate publicity, they’ve succeeded. There’s no such thing as bad publicity, after all.

I just finished watching that first episode — not bad at all, jimmy Kimmel does a good job as host and they keep the game moving right along. I was struck by the return to the earlier question valuations and lower plateau levels. Will Forte just seems scared to answer anything. And seeing conmercial...

Same here. On further consideration, I thought of the related term paramour as a possible entry.
