Re: Monday, July 17, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If the alternate hint for Thule had been about the early 20th century occult group that had many high ranking Nazi members, instead of old town name in Greenland, I would have gotten the question.

This is the kind of question I might have gotten in LL with an unlimited time limit, but no such luck here.

I got a 36 on Tuesday (taken for real), 41 on Wednesday, and a 44 today. I always pick the hardest date to take the test. Hopefully, the 36 on Tuesday will be enough.
