Re: Friday, October 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After scuffling most of the week I finally put together a good game, with a 41,400, and it would appear the contestants did too. Would have been higher if I hadn't hazarded an expensive guess with "Balloon Animal," but in the moment that seemed to be likely to be the answer. I think a lot of people ...

I'm assuming that in the "out" category, when they described the loss of electrical power, blackout would be just as acceptable as outage.
I don't think so. Wasn't the category looking for words that begin with "out"? At any rate, I negged myself for the same response.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

For whatever it is or isn’t worth, I negged with “time capsule.” I didn’t recognize it as a bottle + put it together until I’d already “rung in.”

29,000 Coryat. Whiffed on grappa (I called it "groppo"); I'm obviously not a drinker. But missing it like that means it'll stick next time. OTOH I was happy to see the zither music of The Third Man get a mention; too bad it wasn't an audio clue. FJ I considered and dismissed the correct answer (Solo...

Re: FJs for the 10/1/18 week

If there's a reasonable argument for the clue being egregious negbait, it would likely rest on the claim that Pizza Hut is much more likely than Domino's to give one of their products a "cheesy" name like "MeatZZa." I don't know enough about recent trends in corporate branding to say whether that's ...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Happy. This week, after aiming for it all year, I finally achieved a $30,000 average Coryat for a week. (Actually, around $32,000.) When I started training seriously around Christmas, I was probably around $18,000. The timing is good, given that I auditioned a couple of months back and am in the poo...

As for Luke Voit...holy crap. I don't want to think about where we'd be without him giving us a spark while Judge was down. Absolute steal. As a Cardinals fan... I always liked Voit. Some of the Cardinals' trouble over the past few years, has come from having way too many pretty-good players, guys ...

Certainly the greatest novel I 've ever read (though I'm not much of a reader of fiction, really). As such, it came together pretty quickly for me, with a quick detour to consider Madame Bovary ... The lower boxes in DJ seemed pretty generous today. (Kind of Blue + trumpeter a $2000 clue?) I got 10/...

But there's further muddyness here in that he gets the clues beforehand to go over pronunciation which leads to further questions: Can he go over clues with the writers? Does he go "Can I do a voice here?" Or can they suggest, "We where hoping you'd do a voice here." I don't know. What if the write...

I think "Helena Handbasket" may be the funniest thing I've ever heard on this show in a clue. Thanks, writers, for coming up with that. Was playing through some old games on the Archive and what d'ya know, it's been used before ("hand basket" as two words, not one, though). http://www.j-archive.com...

M I worked it out, TWR instagets, F the voice definitely helped me. 12/15 on the season.

Degas was my first thought, but I stupidly said Renoir. Other two were NHO, but I'll remember them in the future!

Because besides the fact that he's generally not very good with them, it's at least a bit unfair because even his muddled accent today could have been a tip-off to one or more of the contestants. :evil: (Poll request for those who got the clue based on Alex's reading?).
