Everything I have found basically says, "Is there a link?" "No." Are you finding different?

Coryat $27200. Ran "Hall" and something else in the first round. Liked the ziggurat category. Totally tanked FJ.

Re: Monday, June 1, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It did seem hard for the value. I actually like the Silmarillion. :oops: So do I. I just can't read it. That makes me laugh. Did you read all the appendices at the end of Return of the King? Of course. How else would one write using Dwarf Runes without consulting the appendix? :) That was EXACTLY w...

Re: Monday, June 1, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got the Middle Earth question, but it seemed extremely difficult for the value. I wouldn't expect anyone other than a hardcore Tolkien fan to know about the Bay of Belfalas (the easiest of the three). Why not go with Misty Mountains, Umbar, Gondor, Mirkwood, etc? Yeah, it was. Despite the fact th...

Re: TD 245: Barbie

I knew several for sure and I am surprised that Wang and Versace are singletons. The handicapping what will be more or less obscure is super hard! I was pretty surprised that Versace was a singleton as well. When I wrote the question, I predicted that Versace or Bob Mackie would sheep, because both...

Re: Monday, June 1, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Can anyone help me parse the clue enough to tell me what information it was providing about Syracuse and the Lakers that would get you to a shot clock? Other than an innovation and 1954, I'm not seeing what anything in the clue would help the average person solve this one. Went with the 3-point lin...

Nailed FJ by virtue of not being able to think of anything else that made sense. Coryat $15200. Meh.

Re: Friday, May 29, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think even if my brain had gotten to "file", I would've clammed because "but that's not a tool, is it... oh, THAT kind of file". That's what I love about this game though. The sideways lightbulb moment. The clues are written, sometimes, to invite you, or force you, to open up the way you think ab...

WLT cardboard on Chair for $200? Or "rice" or "London" at $400? Cardboard: either get a Hi Def TV or glasses, cause I refuse to believe you don't know what a cardboard cross-section looks like. Refuse! I chafed a little at that clue actually. Technically it's corrugated paper, not cardboard. Can yo...

Re: Thursday, May 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm just starting scoring. 21400 isn't bad, right? (I possibly could be stricter with myself, but I tried to be straight about it. One game doesn't tell you very much; you have to keep score over a week or two to figure out your knowledge base/ confidence in your answers. I started keeping score ab...

Absolutely. I think he made at least one other encouraging comment to her later.
