Re: Monday, November 28, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Had I not visited St. Petersburg and specifically the former summer palace that Peter built (Peterhof), I certainly would have guessed France. But as it were, it was a fortunate instaget.

I immediately googled photos of Affogato after seeing the answer yesterday. And now, I MUST HAVE IT.

Re: LL71: For The LLamas

I'm back for my fifth consecutive season in Horizon B. It's good to see some familiar faces.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), October 5, 2016

I thought this was slightly harder than the east coast test. At least for me, there weren't as many clues that elicited a reflexive answer; there were a few more that had to be puzzled out in 15 seconds. The subject matter seemed to be slanted more toward literature than Tuesday night. It also featu...

Re: Wednesday, October 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think my station is showing tomorrow nights show instead of todays. (Tomorrow is Thursday Night Football so they won't show this show tomorrow) I am really pissed that I didn't get to see the champs last game! That must be what's happening here(Grand Rapids MI), very frustrating. Yes. I was so co...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), October 4, 2016

I actually spent some time today going over the emmys, grammys and oscars of the last year assuming that there would be one current pop culture question. Outside of "Top Chef" was there really any others. It seemed to me that last year the current pop culture stuff was good for several questions. M...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), October 4, 2016

It took me 17 seconds to come up with "estimate" and my stupid brain locked in on "Pleiades" for a group of seven stars. Ugh.

I think I'm in the 40-42 range.

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

I had my first ever 12 out of 12 in a One-Day Special (Lesser Presidents). I'm excited and a little disappointed at the same time that I only finished 49th. I undervalued a couple of questions and moneyed the wrong one, apparently. One of them had the same content as the Battle of the Decades champi...

Re: Upcoming tests!

It's now saying that I'm signed up for the test in general, and not a specific date. While I can take it either tonight or tomorrow night, I'm not sure if this is a problem or how to fix it, since nothing I click on seems to change it to a specific night. Never have they had you sign up for a speci...

Re: Friday, September 30, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't know, that FJ was close to an instaget for me, surprised it was a TS. Agree. The list of truly famous/iconic corporate logos is not a long one. Starbucks, Apple, Nike, Chevrolet were all pretty basic pre-calls to make. Also kinda subtle, but the ancient Greek statue of Nike found on Samothr...

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

I finished my rookie season at 14-6-5, and my sixth-place finish will put me in C Horizon next season. LL was a very enjoyable experience, and I'd like to thank jwaymee for referring me. Now it's time to plunk down 25 bucks and re-up for LL71. It's the very least I can do to thank you for the terri...

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

Twin losses of 4(4) - 6(5). I had the rotten luck of drawing opponents who have lifetime percentages in math of .917 and 1.000 (on 43 questions!). Nicely done, Plasticene.

You can only join if there are enough participants to allow us to not play each other. :D
Yes, but you got promoted and I finished 20th. Clearly I was some sort of good luck charm. :D

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

I'm rooting for BigDaddyMatty to stay in the promotion zone and get rewarded for his great season. I really appreciate that. A season, it should be noted, where I still can't find a way to solve WeyhmillerJ. You are one of the two opponents against whom I am 0-3-0 lifetime. In our three matches the...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Horizon B has been more of a struggle for me this season than usual. I'm on pace to have an average (for me) season of TCA, but I am dead last in 3-pointers scored and unforced points earned. People have defended me really well and as a result I am close to the relegation zone with three match days ...

Re: 500 Questions (Season 2) [Spoilers after 5:00 p.m. PDT on game nights]

Raj got boned so hard on that jewelry battle. Peridot/Sardonyx is the British list entry for the August birthstone.

It impugnes the integrity of this otherwise flawless show :roll:
