Re: Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Today's show provided a good example of "go big or go home." Sean did not appear to like the category (Tony Awards) in which he hit the last DD, but he realized that his best chance of winning likely involved wagering enough to have the lead going into FJ. It paid off handsomely. I managed to get FJ...

Re: Monday, April 9, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just about hurled something at the TV when Anne changed her wager on the last DD. I have no idea what she was trying to accomplish with that wager. FJ had me all over the place. The widow's name rang no bells, I could not think of a Gary Busey connection, the year had me thinking of people who mig...

Re: Friday, April 6, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was an instaget for me. I guess it helps to pay some attention to world politics. ;)

I laughed at how close I came on the August DD with my WAG of September.

Re: Thursday, April 5, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree that John should have bet $700 on the last DD to go for the lock tie.

I struggled with FJ, eventually coming up with just "red and blue" (no "state"), which I negged.

A frustrating FJ for me. I knew the book referenced by the clue, remembered the author's name, but could not come up with the title in time. :(

Re: Tuesday, April 3, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

A mediocre game to watch. My WAG for FJ was incorrect. Okay, I've clearly gone dyslexic if I thought MoMA stood for Metropolitan Ouseum Mf Art. MoMA = Museum of Modern Art I didn't see "1984" anywhere in the Stupid Answers for $400. The clue mentioned it was a bestseller in 1984 despite being publis...

If you didn't know the meaning of the Italian word, then it came down to "name a De Niro movie." I didn't guess the correct one.

Re: Thursday, March 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a good game to watch; very competitive.

I was surprised that Maya Lin was a TS.

FJ was a bit of a struggle, but I had a nagging feeling that it was a planet closer to the Sun than Earth, which led me to settle on the correct response.

Re: Wednesday, March 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good game by Beau.

I picked up Lach Trash for Father Brown, NASA, and Liszt.

Judges: proclivity for propensity?

I had no chance on FJ.

Re: Tuesday, March 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Chuck played a good game but was a bit too aggressive. If he had reigned in his negs I think he could have had a lock and won.

Beau got lucky that third place didn't bet it all in FJ.

Head slap on FJ. I just didn't think about the clue in the right way.

Re: Monday, March 26, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

The DJ round today fizzled in much the same way as the DJ round in last Thursday's game. It didn't make for good entertainment.

Not a good FJ wager by Dennis. It cost him the game.

My WAG for FJ was Hawaii. At least I was in the right country.

It allows you to rotate the board so you don't have to read the letters sideways or upside-down.

Re: Friday, March 23, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Dennis played a good game, but he should have refrained from ringing in on the last clue. Nice comeback by Cathy to produce the lock-tie situation, but a bad FJ wager from her. However, it was evident from her first game that wagering strategy is not one of her strengths. I thought Eileen ...

Re: Thursday, March 22, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

You know a game is going badly when Alex feels compelled to remark on it.

State nicknames are a weakness of mine and I am unfamiliar with that speech, so I didn't get FJ.

Re: Wednesday, March 21, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not a very exciting game to watch. Picked up some Lach Trash (Calgary Flames and a bottom-row clue in DJ that I can't remember now). I got FJ after about 5 seconds of thinking. I knew the author kept to himself and had died recently.

He meant you had to think of people being "processed" for immigration, not food. The years in the clue were the biggest hints for me.
