Re: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would have had no idea. Never been to an IKEA store and never had a desire to do so. My mechanical skills are severely lacking so buying something I have to build myself isn’t for me. Don’t tell me it is easy to assemble. You haven’t seen me in action.

Nothing came to me on FJ. Wondered what kind of company starts in the middle of World War II.

I’d put “The Giants win the pennant” ahead of Most’s call.

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You still have to be aware of the Olympic boycott years so it isn’t a dead giveaway. The big help is on the other end. The Depression hint narrows it down to two possibilities and if you know Berlin is 1936 you are home free.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I I butchered the spelling of Havlicek’s name but got credit anyway. Why I didn’t take the easy route and just put Bird I’ll never know. Saved a tie. I played this game through early access and the sandwich question originally also said it was an ingredient in a pilgrim sandwich. Still missed it but...

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don’t think it’s a bad question, but it is a bad Final Jeopardy question. There is no perfect way to figure it out other than just knowing it, but if you recall that the Berlin games were in 1936 and WW2 canceled the 1940 and 1944 games, it gives you a fewer options to work with. Maybe, but yikes...

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What an odd FJ. If you're decent at Sports Trivia it's cake, but as we know, most contestants fail this test. Personally, I certainly wouldn't mind seeing TPTB ramp up the knowledge needed to answer sports clues. Admittedly, it's not Sports Trivia 101, more like Sports Trivia 201. Amal bet $5000 of...

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ pretty quickly but I also thought it was a dumb FJ. Not sure why they didn’t just say Los Angeles. Brotherly love should have been negged for agape. I guess Oz decided to say “yes” before recognizing a contestant today instead of giving the first name of a response. Saves on the archive’s p...

do they maintain that "unluckiest" thing still? I feel like I could be there. It's been that kind of a year.
Someone on there maintains a list of luckiest/unluckiest but I don’t know what all goes into the algorithm that determines it.

He did better than I thought he would, but I'd put him down as a big 'meh'. I guess we'll see with more shows.
I wasn’t impressed with Katie at first but she improved a lot in two weeks.

I guess I forgot how to defend in any form. I'm in 1st in B Taiga for TCA... and I'm in the relegation zone.
You also lead in correct answers allowed (a stat similar to free throw defense in basketball) so that doesn’t help.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

After a horrible start to the season I am now on the cusp of a promotion to C where I will last one season. I need three points in the last four days to set a personal record, surely that happens. I need eight TCA for a new high, we’ll see about that. I also have nine treys on the season, on short o...

Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

the Category was Initially Yours, i think they should of Had to Say the Initials. Agreed. Requiring the contestants to know the correct initials is the whole point of the category; otherwise, it’s a random set of clues about famous people. I’m sure Alex (or Ken, or Mike) would have asked for a BMS....

I really want to see that Warhol portrait. I couldn’t believe Warhol was a TS with pop artist in the answer. Never heard of the guy the player said but he was seven the day Warhol was shot. I don’t think I have ever watched his show or read anything about his medical advice so I am viewing him with...

Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I enjoyed his first day as host. I can see an argument either way for the archive so I will stay neutral.

I don’t think he reminded Nick he could bet $1000 on DD1 when he had $800.

Blank for me on FJ. I thought of times that try men’s souls but I think that’s this side of the pond.

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I had Ken at 8 and Mike at 6, so Katie slides in at about 7.8. Katie is very watchable and didn't detract from the show, so I'd be fine with having on for another week or two, or having her come back at a later date. After two weeks of Mike, I was ready to move on. Returning the favor of you piggyb...
