Re: Thursday, April 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

And since I get to answer every question, I also divide my coryat by 3 to get a rough idea of how well I did compared to the actual players - figuring that only being able to win the buzzer race 1/3 of the time is a good enough approximation for now. That’s a good idea, though I don’t think I’ll of...

Re: TD 375 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 5xx (NOW OPEN)

. Most of them are EASY! (LETTER REQUIRED) had never heard any of them in life before today No clarification today needed, to avoid spoilers, although after the game is over I would find it fascinating how this could possibly be true. While I agree with pretty much everyone here, and share Casket R...

Re: Friday, April 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When was the last game to have all three final wagers less than $1000? Is there a way to determine if the total amount wagered ($1,072) is lower than any previous lowest amount? This past March 2 , the largest FJ wager was $850. Among Archived games, the lowest total amount wagered in a three-perso...

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

This is either illegal (some of this year's nominees are not officially available for streaming) or costs more money than, I would guess, TPH is willing to pay (e.g., $14.99 a month for HBO GO). Is there a single 2017 or 2018 Best Picture nominee that's not available either to stream on one of the ...

Since when are there seven colors in the rainbow?

I'm amazed no one has mentioned it, but "The Shah of Iran" being accepted instead of "Mohammed Reza Shah/Pahlavi" is one of the most ridiculous decisions I have seen on the show in a long time. That's certainly how he was known, then and now. There's absolutely nothing wrong with accepting it. I ag...

I've been sick all day. The Airlines were far easier than I thought. Hawaiian Airlines was obvious after the fact, and I blanked on Aer Lingus. Strangely, Air France was the only one I had no hope on. "Mediterranean" is always hard for me to spell too. At least I finally placed Kilimanjaro in the r...

Disneyland is on my to-go list for my SoCal visit upon The Call. (Or more precisely, on my kids’ list, I’ve never been anxious to go and the more I hear about it (namely the crowds and prices) the less interest I personally have.)

Just in case anyone is interested: this was the last game taped before Alex's surgery. This week had been taped on December 13. Next week's games were taped on January 16. Is that why there was the pre-game spiel about being anxious to get out of there? (Maybe not for the surgery, but if that surge...
