Re: Monday, October 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow, Keith was impressive recouping his 9,000 DD losses. John-Clark was a very fast player, but even he couldn't keep up. I admired J-C's strategy of dragging out category names and picking low value clues (well done!), but Keith was fighting tooth and nail. Felt bad for Anne, with two gunners like ...

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 29

Sheri, you're too kind. At the end of the day, I went to the hotel lobby, looking for you and others to share a drink and laughs. But I had the joint to myself. I recalled riding in with you and Erin that morning; seemed like you had been BFFs for a long time... and if memory serves, I do remember ...

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 29

Case, I can't remember if I mentioned this anecdote in the green room or not, but after I won, I was shaking and practically hyperventilating, so in the post-game chat, Alex said I could calm down now, and I jokingly asked Leo (a psychiatrist) if he could get me some beta blockers. All joking aside...

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 29

I think the bulk of us Season 29ers joined after our episode(s) taped. I missed it if you already mentioned it, but how did you find the board? Erin and I were members before our taping in July, and Penny, Alison, and Peter joined afterward. I know Penny and Alison joined from our discussion in the...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Really? Pedastal + female poet = Emma Lazarus. Especially when "fundraiser" was thrown in there. I think one guy was on the right track with Ezra, although clearly wrong because of the whole "woman" thing. Sigh. So, two days in a row, two literature FJs, and instead of a triple get, we get a TS.

Re: Thursday, October 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, I struggled with this board, too. FJ was an instant get, though I'll admit that I am surprised that it was a triple get. Props to the contestants! Me too, on the first two points. I almost rethought it, because 1890 seemed awfully early; I'd thought Conrad was almost a contemporary author. I ...

Were you planning to found that out in west Texas next to the other secessionist tribes? Or were you thinking island? Will your horses, mule and goat be your first residents?

Re: Monday, October 1, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

So here I am. It was a fun and surreal experience to watch the program two months after it was taped. Hi Brendan, it's great to see you here! I thought the same thing when my show finally aired. And I also enjoyed getting the sought after "nicely done" from Alex after I swept my geography category....

Re: Tuesday, October 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't want to leap to conclusions based on an edited television show, but these comments about Daniel are very believable based on his expressions and body language. Kind of ties into my own impression, but hearing from those who were in the green room with him definitely get a lot of weight with...

Re: Tuesday, October 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow, wasn't that a masterful performance by Sara? I loved her personality and playing style, well done, her! And I got a HUGE kick out of Joanna's interview, especially the shirts. Sara seemed to be totally dominating the buzzer, but Joanna snuck in there with some good gets. Daniel . . . well, he s...

Re: Thursday, September 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

And only knew of Doris Duke because of taking the tour thru Shangri La a couple of years ago. I had never heard of the place until my mother in law suggested it. It's a wonderful tour if you get the chance (and are on Oahu with an afternoon to spare). I spent a month on Oahu and I'd never heard of ...

Re: Wednesday, September 26, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm confused about the logistics here. How can you add a zero to your bet if you're not allowed to change it? Could you just scribble over the part you'd already written? I was still mulling it over. At the beginning, I used the Sharpie and paper to double, then subtract from Mike's total, then wro...

Just finished watching this one and it hurt, actually hurt my heart. I've spent the rest of the summer thinking I lost to a player like Erin, fast and knowledgable, who was going to win multiple games. What on earth happened to Mike during lunch? Food poisoning at the commissary?? I owned these boar...

You did a great job Sheri, and I hope your party last night was wonderful. Watching Jane Eyre the night before flying out was a stroke of luck! I'm sorry you didn't get in on defenestration. That might be my favorite clue of the season :) I'm giggling at the idea of you passive aggressively adding ...

Slinking back in to comment. I'm embarrassed with my misses (clearly I have something against the fine state of Tennessee), but I really did have the time of my life. I was kind of horrified that 1) Alex chose THAT story to discuss (sigh), and 2) that the editors left pretty much the entire intervie...

Aaaannnddd . . . there goes Erin. Wonderful run, my friend! I'm glad I didn't have to play against you, chickadee; you're way too fast and too knowledgable. Even playing against you in the practice rounds was tough, and I was proud to have more or less a draw there. I discovered that Erin is a board...

Peter, you are brilliant! Thank you, amigo! *smooch*

I'm on the main video on the hometown howdies section. There's a twenty second clip of us all standing on stage laughing (I love the one where the Monday group is cracking up) and I'm on a couple of those sections. :o

I'm almost as grey as Alex, obviously the most senior of the first-weekers.
Just got mine too! I'm excited. Now, how to make this my avatar/picture thingy?
