Re: Thursday, April 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

But it's not wrong. If "church" counts, certainly "Anglican church" should count, no? Well, if you look at the wiki article on this guy, here's what it says with regards to this specific clue: not a thing. And if you look at the articles on the Church in Wales and the Welsh Church Act of 1914 (whic...

Re: Thursday, April 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wrote down What is the Church of England? Judges? That is the church that was disestablished. Full credit. So "The Anglican Church" would have counted? That was the first thing that came to mind for me. I'd say so. Nope. The Church in Wales split from the Church of England. Both are Anglican chur...

Though this was announced for real this morning, so many people on social media believed this was just another April Fools joke.

I knew it. Well, I'm forming my own organization and in mine the official abbreviation will be BG. So there!
Nope. It's BSG. So say we all!

I think of the response as a slogan more than a logo. Like Mark, no chance.
It's a logo, slogan, and song (which I was singing during the 30 seconds :) )!

It's my birth city. Wasn't missing this.

Re: Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyone else slightly bothered and thrown off by Battlestar Galactica being abbrev. as BSG and not BG? I've seen it abbreviated that way before. Plus the category didn't specify that anything would be strictly abbreviated to initials. BSG is the correct abbreviation for the new series. Don't think t...

Just wow to Jean not even guessing to prevent a lock game, then throwing away a grand unnecessarily on top of that.
If she gets the last $2000 clue it still doesn’t break the lock.
True.

She did throw away a grand, though.

Instaget FJ.

I said Augusta and since I'm not likely to meet any Club members to laugh at me I'm fine with it... ;)
With all due deference to Golf, I'm going to disagree with him and say "Augusta" on its own is just fine.

Re: Monday, March 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue had me thinking like Susan perhaps as I also had that wrong lady. Working more from a stage angle had me thinking The Mousetrap . I cheated myself out a possible save by not working the (very likely better for me) movie angle off the year. I'm near certain, though can't be positive, th...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

It just dawned on me that the league symbol roundel for the foundry rundle is an anvil. :roll: Unless they're casting it for a customer that owns a forge, you will not find an anvil in a foundry. True, but it's cool-looking. What would you use in its place? Molten metal being poured from a crucible...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Managed to win my last two games and stayed just above relegation. 2nd season in a row with 91 TCA, so I'm about +20 to QPct. Finished with a respectable .723 DE. My career is now a completely balanced 311-311-103.

Anyone else notice that the closed captioning has gone downhill? Until recently, they caught every nuance including mistakes by the contestants. Now, it seems like they don't even know what the response means. Kind of a bummer.
Why would I turn captioning on?

Luckily my DAISH was accepted giving me a 4(4)-4(4) tie.
Had to look that up to see why one would be acceptable but not the other (Daash, above). Looks like while DAESH is the normal acronym, it can also be shown as Da'ish.
