Re: Monday, September 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

This could have been a good night for me (sigh), but ONLY if I could have avoided those Daily Doubles, which killed me, I'm embarrassed to admit. I could have stood up there for a year and not come up with "axial" for the CAT scan DD. I would have been tempted to go TDD on that one. I was running t...

Never heard of golden spurs. I also went with gloves for lack of a better guess.

Re: Friday, September 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

I've recently done a bit of reading about U.S. stock market history, which turned out to be helpful for today's FJ. It didn't take me long to determine the correct response. After getting FJ wrong on Monday, it was nice to get four in a row correct to close out the week.

Re: Thursday, September 22, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

I got FJ by thinking of some kind of "person" one might associate with Nietzsche. "Superman" was the only possibility that came to mind and it sort of made sense in the context of the clue, so I went with it.

I thought of Jolie right away, then momentarily mixed up Jon Voight and Martin Sheen before going with Voight.

Re: Tuesday, September 20, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

An average game to watch. I was happy to pick up the Lach Trash on George Smiley. FJ was an instaget. I interpreted "popular world sport" as suggesting that it might not be popular in the U.S. (otherwise I think they might have just written "popular sport").

FJ was not for me. My WAG was Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

FJ was an instaget. It helped that I've seen the trailer for the upcoming movie.

Distant high-school memories of studying the French Revolution served me well, for I came up with the correct FJ response instantly. A nice way to start the week. :D

Re: About This Board

This is DWS from the old board. I'm glad to see that a new board is up and running -- hopefully previous boardies can find it (I stumbled across it while visiting the J-Archive). I'm looking forward to revived discussions, game analyses, trivia games, and everything else that makes the board an inte...
