Re: One DJ! Round clue from the 3/8/18 game (Plane)

I thought it was a Mustang, but I even guessed the wrong P number for that.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

(Catching up on this thread for the first time this year...) IN DJ!, have a look at BRITISH POETS & POETRY if you'd like to test yourself on a hard academic category. The work at $2000, Age of Anxiety", is basically new to the Archive, since in its only other appearance the author's first and middle...

Woohoo, I got my first playing-along 6-pack with MD5! Thanks, hockey-fan sister and brother-in-law and Budapest episode of Travel Man.

I wouldn't have been so confused on the name if they had asked about GaGa Ball, though. :)
I thought that was called The Monster Ball.

Got as far as -polis for Final.
I got to there, then Gallipoli never occurred to me, even though it's part of one of my favorite Simpsons gags.

I'm just glad it wasn't Cambrai, which was mentioned many times in a show I watched just a few days ago, and which I also couldn't remember.

I thought that Tapper/Topher/Tapir/Taper question was funny and easy, so that was... an experience to watch. I'd also like to thank "existing in the world" for teaching me that Lil Yachty is a person. Vermonter : Grape job, and good retro-luck for tomorrow! I don't follow @jonfavs, but I've seen en...

On the other hand, mentioning that Togo West was a former Army lieutenant was a perfect TOM for a DD. Meanwhile, I was trying to figure out if there was a cabinet department involved in "going west"... For FJ, I precalled 47 Ronin, then remembered that was quite a bit after the medieval era (I thin...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Playing along with the Barbershop 1DS, I'm a little surprised at how hard Q10 played (I knew it without the audio, having never played the game, but I think another recent-ish clue made me notice how few LLamas seem to be aware of blockbuster video games), and I'm shocked at the get rate on Q11. I m...

Nice pull on Dixon Hill! I couldn't have come up with that. I gave the correct holodeck response even though I was momentarily distracted by Trebek's failure to pronounce the final d in "Picard". I don't know French at all, so I'm not sure if that pronunciation makes sense. I just know it's NOT the...

Re: Monday, February 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had a similar "let's make it too complicated" moment with one of the fedora clues. All they wanted was "holodeck" but I went past that and spent my time trying to dredge up "Dixon Hill," the character Picard liked to role-play with the fedora on the holodeck. Wasn't able to recall the name until ...

Can anyone tell me the J!6 clue for the Eurovision category? I was really hoping they'd get through all those clues, and I got all the ones we saw. I thought maybe there would be a clue about Lordi or Conchita Wurst. I clammed on the home improvement store because although the "home" in the clue mad...

Johns Hopkins on Thursday. Even if I'd remembered that the CDC HQ is in Atlanta (from various board games and works of fiction), I never knew that Emory has a famous medical school... or what state it's in.

Ginsberg Thursday. I was pretty sure it was one of those other Beat guys, but no other names were coming to me.
