TD 340 - Grab Bag (Final results)

Post by clt013 » Tue Apr 04, 2017 9:24 am

With nobody else in the queue, I decided to take one of my rough drafts and clean it up enough to get something out for this week.
This TD could be "technically deemed" to be "thematically deficient" and is pretty much a "grab bag". There are 10 categories with eight possible answers for each. "Grab" one from each "bag" and give your responses as the letter followed by your answer.

Rules/Notes
1) Lowest point total wins; your score for each question is equal to the total number of players submitting that same answer
2) You may use one drop and take zero points for that question
3) You may elect to take the "sheep" (most popular) answer for 1 question
4) There will be a BONUS of (-2) for anyone who gives 10 correct answers and does not use their "drop" or "sheep"
5) Wrong responses are the higher of either +8 points or the "sheep" answer
6) All answers are due by 1:00 PM CDT on April 11, 2017

Had Cruel Summer down as an answer; changed it to Fall Guy
**smacks head in disbelief**

Also thought people might forget the Canadian team winning the World Series twice; should have gone with the Canadian sport of hockey for that answer as well! I seem to do better when I know fewer of the answers. I guess that's less of a chance to hit the sheep :lol:

What's the record for number of sheep/co-sheep? I am 4 for 4, can make plenty of wool sweaters with that!
On a recent TD, I got 8 sheep and 2 wrong out of 11 answers....

After answering this quiz, I realized that I was only hurting myself by not taking the drop! I had only one singleton and dropping any other question would have lowered my score by more than two points.

It was a fun TD. Are you a Penguins fan? Three Penguin related questions made me wonder.

I realized after the fact that I should have made the bonus for not using a drop larger than 2 points - didn't think that one through completely before posting.

I am a Penguins fan, though Daley was mostly included because I was looking for eight "T" first names that didn't match each other.
