Re: Friday, April 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I did not get FJ. The answer was shouted out in the room very quickly, but I never would have thought of it.

I really wanted Rebecca to have added "ote" to her response at the end of her missed DD.

Re: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

No confidence whatsoever, but I WAGged with Ray Bradbury just because I know he died last year. I suspect they would have called him a "sci fi writer" rather than an "author" though, for some reason. I came up with the same answer for the same reason. I had gone through a magazine earlier on in the...

No chance on FJ. I've never heard of this song before. I could not name a single jazz song.

I'm a bit surprised that they took Barrett's FJ response. All I could make out was Eisen.

Re: Thursday, February 7, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Would it have been more fair for them to do a tiebreaker clue in this case? ANyone think? And yes, three way ties on zero have happened in tourney games before. The 1989 Seniors tourney had a three way tie on zero during a QF game. The semis consisted of the winners of the other four games plus the...

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I will admit this Canadian did not get all the Canadian provinces correct. I was ready for Maine being a clue, and Ontario was easy. I did get B.C. The other 2 I needed a bit more time to think about, but the answer was already given by another in the room. I'm not very good at American geograpghy, ...

[quote="MarkBarrett"]Juggling, Redgraves, and Quantrill were easy collections. I get not knowing the people names, but could those of you who didn't get juggling explain the problem?

The value of the clue confused them?

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 8, 2013

Question 5, Cornell came to mind, but I went elsewhere. I don't drink alcohol, so no shot there. Screwdriver or Bloody Mary, that I know. I have no interest in The Hunger games movie. Someone was going to lend me the books. I said there was no hurry, but I was wrong. Ancient Rome I was going to go f...

Re: Thursday, December 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

On Writing for $400, how are we supposed to know that author writes romance novels and not something else? Because of the prodigious quantity. That's how romance novels work. They all have basically the same plot, established by a text "mask." Then the writer runs a "fill-in" app, to insert charact...

Re: Wednesday, December 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I didn't care for the way Alex chided the two ladies on the last clue in DJ. Maybe they were indeed bad guesses, but both were at least trying to keep themselves in the game. I didn't care for them guessing and wasting time. I wanted a few more clues revealed in the Before and After category. It wa...

Re: [#6489] - Thursday, November 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Would be really interesting to see the split of those who did not grow up with some kind of semi-regular church attendance on FJ vs those who did. I did, and I had it at rooster. Question to whoever wants to answer: Who got this without having much church / Christianity exposure in their lives? If ...

Re: [#6487] - Tuesday, November 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was impressed with them getting any of the stars of the olden screen. I didn't get Buster Keaton. I know the name, not the face. I never heard of the last guy before.

Love the FJ category, not so much the question.

It didn't matter in regards to the outcome, but am I the only one calling foul on the Nixon DD? As bad as Alex's impressions are it was obvious it was Nixon. A little extra help on a clue, that really didn't need any enhancement.

Re: Wednesday, July 25, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My guess was trampoline when the category was revealed. The year it was introduced a Canadian won gold, that's why I remember it. I didn't think it was way back in 2000, but went with it anyway. I could not think of anything else. It sounded like Alex hadn't even heard of the movie. I've heard of th...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think she was ruled wrong because the character's name isn't Alex from Family Ties. On the other hand, the question in the Rising category seemingly asked for the title. Hannibal Rising is the title, not Hannibal Lecter Rising. So that should have been ruled wrong. I think I may have gotten FJ bec...

AmI the only one who laughed when they said F in science? Say it quickly :lol: I've been waiting for several years since F in Geography for the category to come back. Alas, that time as well no one seemed to embrace it, or they were all just trying to be polite. It might have to be F in Opera for a...

Re: Online Test Discussion (Pacific), January 19, 2012

The easiest of the 3 by far. Still only about 32/50. I see at least 7 or 8 that were getable by me with just a little more thought. It's the usual names of places, poetry and opera that are my problem areas. Tuesday's test seems to be the only one lacking in any sports question. I don't mind sports ...
