Re: FJ!s for the 1/1/18 week

I'd be interested to see for those who got Kentucky whether they got it based on Murray State (as I did) or on Transylvania U. for me it was mainly murray state (following ncaa basketball allows for vast knowledge of lesser known schools)...i had heard of transylvania uni beforehand...had it just b...

Tokophobia was easy only because the clue obviously led to fear of giving birth. At least that one played ...

Re: Friday, January 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nomophobia was poorly pinned. "Charging phone" was too specific and that misled the contestants further away. Terrible clue. The Ducks are a real team?! I thought they were made up for that movie. The only one I got there was the only one they didn't, Red Wings. How was I supposed to figure out ric...

How the hell did Candy Maldonaldo sheep? He wasn't even that good of a player to be well known. I'm guessing the rest of you thought the same way I did apparently.

Hi, this is Donna. I'm bad at betting! it wasn't the worst wager of the bunch...2nd place chick that won wagered horribly...you figured she was going all in as was the only way for her to have a chance to win...you took liberty and wagered an amt to give you a decent chunk of change seeing she is a...

Yes you have it right, 1998 and 2002. It's been corrected; thanks for the heads-up!

Re: Tuesday, December 12, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ! was an insta-get for me, via the "church" → kirk → Dunkirk path. The "kirk" token made its way into both Celtic/Gaelic and German place names, so it's all over Europe and easy to recognize. I wonder if Ian very carefully laid out the wagering strategies on his scratch paper and then picked the ...

The Peaceable Kingdom (Sorry guys- my 4-year old knows this one!) Is that because of Little Einsteins? Because I think my 4 year old would also get that one. I was thinking this was the hardest match (or worst categories for me or whatever) of the ToC so far, but my coryat was 26,400. 36/3 Lach Tra...

You could've spotted me Robert Browning poem, children's story and German village and I still wouldn't have come up with Hannibal Hamlin. Had completely forgotten he was Lincoln's first VP.
