Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a well phrased FJ. Otherwise I might have said "New Dealio", which is much more marketable. FDR wasn't as media savvy as people think. I do enjoy this show much more without juggernaut players. Who wants to watch the Ravens destroy the Rams in the first quarter? Patriots, maybe :). Watch o...

So am I the only one who doesn't think of "deal" as a one-syllable word?
you think it has more than one syllable?

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It can mean to measure body heat but idiomatically, it means to survey the attitudes of a group of people I have literally never heard "take temperature" in the "survey the attitudes" context mentioned in this clue. Was this unfamiliar to anyone else too? you sure do love the word "literally"...why...

Did anyone else laugh at the eventual champ saying "fortune favors the bold" on her daily double, and then NOT making it a true daily double? Oh, how bold.
yeah was pretty lame...i am hoping for the return of the one and doner

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

(The Mariah Carey song was my only miss. She has had many, many hits.) I'd hit that. :shock: :lol: Elise's lack of gameplay skills caught up with her. Her Coryat was much higher than the eventual winner, but not hunting DD's and making sub-optimal wagers let one with lesser knowledge and/or buzzer ...

Re: Techniques for Memorizing and Reinforcing Trivial Facts

I remember SPA for Socrates, Plato, Aristotle (earliest to latest)... or SPAA if you include Alexander the Great. This has come in handy lots of times. never thought about SPA...i just remember it as being reverse alphabetical order...SPA would be easier to...the 3 geezer philosophers hitting the SPA

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any three-time champ on this show deserves respect, but you have to admit, it takes a special kind of talent to blow that FJ. Only Elise can confirm it, but in the past I have seen contestant comments that in such a situation they recognize that on an "easy" FJ! clue their only hope was that it was...

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said “take the pulse” (for temperature) - which clearly doesn’t fit, then said “hard pill to swallow” - which seems just as good as bitter pill or even jagged little pill John Locke, we hardly knew ye! I want to lambast Beth for “I’m sexy and I know it” but she really committed to the line, she j...

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Daily Doubles matter and Beth made them work in her favor. Much mention was made of Elise's lack of DD hunting logic in her first game. I don't bother grading player's DD hunting skills, so I wasn't following her selections in this game, but I wonder in hindsight if she let either of the DJ DDs fal...

Any reason I should know the Chicago riots were in 1968 and not any other years?

It's trivia. Any reason you shouldn't?

1968: LBJ decides not to run again, MLK shot, RFK shot, riots in Chicago at the Democratic convention.

Re: Friday, November 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Congrats on Elise for her third win; and I think she has potential to becoming a 5-time champion, earning a spot in the next ToC. She's really good, somehow the thing she struggles with most is pronouncing the category names. Yeah. Don't know why she insists on calling the full category name every ...

This was not my board at all. I was 11R 2W in J!, and 5R 0W in DJ! Google has a parent company? I thought it was just Google. I knew "oubliette" from Enter the Gungeon but got snagged on "basement" and couldn't backtrack to "dungeon". Any reason I should know the Chicago riots were in 1968 and not ...
