Re: Tuesday, March 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

:cry: FJ. Picked Lord of the Flies as being the closest match to the Utopian TOM (by being dystopian). Did not connect the animals to the great TOM's of Aesop (duh - tales are based on animals), I had Lord of the Flies, also. I managed to find multiple ways to go wrong in this one: first, misled by...

Re: Monday, March 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got this one right mostly on account of remembering this FJ from my forays through the Archive:

Re: Thursday, March 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

"Glass" was given as a correct answer. I said "mirror". Judges? Maybe it's because I"m more of a NIV person than a KJV person (although the rest of the quote doesn't match up in NIV), but I"m thinking of the title of one of my favourite Star Trek episodes (surprisingly, from the Enterprise series) ...

I said "service station" for "filling station." Judges?

For FJ, I wrote down Mt. Rushmore; I was under the impression that it had been completed earlier than it was. :oops:

Re: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

As you've all noticed by now, I'm not so much a Forrest bouncer as much as I am a determined "clear the BOTTOM half of the board first" player. (in the name of Daily Doubles and dollars, of course) Honestly, the thing I've noticed as much as anything is your tendency to go right at video-clue categ...

Re: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Question: Would Peristyle work for Colonnade clue? Or how about arcade? I don't think arcade would work... an arcade has arches, rather than columns, and I believe the clue specifically said "column-lined" or words to that effect.... (I had reason to research / think about this because I answered a...

Re: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If the FJ! clue’s wording had left off the English translation I wonder if it still goes 4/4 including me? As written I went with the kind of bird I’ve seen enough times in the backyard that seemed to fit the description. As someone who speaks some Spanish and French but not Portuguese, I'm not sur...

Interesting to me so many here seem to have gone right to "Neverland" rather than "Wonderland." Seemed like a coin toss to me and I picked wrong.
Ditto.

Re: Thursday, February 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

"Jazeera" does not mean 'Penninsula' in Arabic. It means 'Island.' Not sure how/why the writers got that wrong. I'm guessing here (from wiki): Al Jazeera (Arabic: الجزيرة‎ al-ǧazīrah, IPA: [æl dʒæˈziːrɐ], literally "The Island", though referring to the Arabian Peninsula in context[1] Where [1] lead...

WTF did Frank say for that Milwaukee clue?

Looking around, there are various geographic features in the state with the "ee" ending, also.

Coryat: 32,000

DD: 3/3

Johns Hopkins is a fine guess given that I didn't know where CDC was, but I should have known where CDC was. I'd like to think I could have pulled Emory with that info.

33 R, 4 W

Coryat: $22,600.

DD: 3/3

FJ: :mrgreen:

I have never seen or read The Right Stuff and had no idea what it was about, but the phrase was the only thing I could think of that could work, so I wrote it down. Extremely lucky guess.

Re: Thursday, February 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Barely know Henry's wives (there's an Anne or two, a Catherine or two, and some others), so I'm not going to get them from an anagram. I recently read a cutesy rhyme that supposed to help you remember them. It didn't work. (But I think a couple of the clues contained TOMs from that rhyme.) And of c...

Hi guys, first time posting. I get the sense I'll be around here a fair bit; I've been training a lot, trying to bump up my Coryats, and discovering the discussion here has been really helpful to that end. I'm a philosophy student. One of my bigger Jeopardy-related fears is going on the show and com...
