Who's Special #4 (Questions now posted!!!)

Against my better judgement, I am plunging into this genre of board game. Here are the rules. I will accept suggestions for categories from anyone who wishes to submit one. I have final approval on them, but will accept any which I feel I can make a decent set of questions from. Try to go easy one, ...

If Kennedy were on the list, would he be considered to have attended LBJ's swearing in since he was on the plane?

Re: Monday, February 13, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

A good show tonight. Shocked that all 3 didnt get FJ - as the Oxford English Dictionary wouldn't need to be translated from English to, uhh, English? Thought Sarah was sure to get that one given her semester in London. I am really amazed with Monica now that I know she is essentially a skipped ahea...

Re: Monday, February 13, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I saw the bit about premature obituary and got my mind on Twain. I think the others were the same way and stayed with literary people. My second choice was P.T. Barnum for some reason. Instaget FJ once I realized they were going for the 400th and not 40th anniversary. (So what happened in 1971?). A ...

Am I wrong in thinking Connie's best wager was attrition? Let the two closely packed leaders fight it out stand pat on her 8k. She needs a solo get or TS to win anyway, so stand back and see what happen. 2 bucks wasn't gonna win against the leader's losing wager. Connie definitely should have wager...

My first thought was Constantine, but he wasn't a king. So I went to the Bible.....and said Herod.

Bad DD bet, even worse FJ bet.

Re: TD 145: Presidential Groundhog Day

I picked Madison to tie my Dick to because I figured people mix the two JMs up and would either avoid them or get it wrong. I was half right there, as one was a sheep and the other a singleton.

You can keep their order straight by remembering they served in alphabetical order.

Sorry, I'm a Coffee grad, class of 1985. Like I said, I'd heard of it, but that's it.

BTW, Coffee and Bradshaw merged a few years ago to form Florence High School. Nickname is Falcons. I didn't know if you still had contact with the hometown.

Re: Thursday, February 9, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe Mark can have "I had dirty thoughts during Thursday's interview segment" as a poll option. I wonder how TPH did on the non-hoity toity food category. I agree the DD bet way too small. He trailed $24,600-$8,400 and bets $6,000 with $4,800 left on the board. So she can wrap up the lock by runnin...

Re: Who's Special? #3

I said Apollo 13, not Apollo 18, so it should be scored as wrong. I thought it was some tin hat conspiracy movie and they thought A13 was some secret government plot.

I have never read that poem. I had no idea when it was written, I could not have told you even the century. I have no idea it is about. I had no idea who wrote it. I do not know the Greek word mentioned in the clue. But I took a wild guess on a poem that has a female sounding name and got it right. ...

Re: Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also have to say, what with the added plural and, later, the look of astonishment on Monica's face, there was some déja-vu going on for me. I got déjà vu from SF1 being won by a wild card from QF5 on a Final Jeopardy about a Frenchman that only third place got right, with underwagering going on. ...

Re: Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I actually liked the Roget/Bartlett category. No chance on FJ for me, I went with Sinbad just to have something.

Can anyone explain the logic behind any of those FJ wagers?

At least we'll never have to hear "Gimme this category......." ever again.
