I thought everyone would choose Krampus. I'm so bad at these.

There's got to be a mistake on Q7, as I only got 2 points! That can't be right....

On Q6, I was trying to decide between caldera, ghetto, and coup. As usual, I pick the one worth 9 points while the others were 2 and 3. This TD is testing my sanity.

Excited to see the results from Q8, my answer was literally the only one I could come up with.

Same. I hope this doesn't foreshadow a mega-sheep.

No worse than I. I passed over "Druid" for question seven thinking it had a strong chance of sheeping. It went unused!

I need to learn to think differently differently, instead of thinking differently alike.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I didn't enter this game, but I'm predicting that "drop" and "sheep" will be the runaway winners on this question, with the "sheep" option coming out with surprisingly few points.

That's how I felt on both 7 and 8, and Methuselah was a big sheep in 7.

I knew if I could get the other half of the manspreading I'd be in good shape but just could not make a connection with the river. Don't take this as a complaint, but it does seem like the biggest "sound kinda the same" stretch.

Haha it’s ok. Complain all you want. I’m just happy that a few people figured out what I was going for there :)

By the way, have people outside of the NYC area heard of ‘manspreading’?

I think this question would work better with additional clues, like “undergarments / a monument” for brassieres / Bears Ears

Open to more feedback. Did you love it or hate it?

Negative to the manspreading on our subways here on the prairie. Only gopher-spreading and groundhog-spreading. Lots of mansplaining, however.

The concept is OK, but tough to pull off; it looks like you got a nice spread of answers. I think a starting letter would make it more player friendly without giving away the more diabolical clues. I will limit myself to one hated category and that is "before and after". Now that I got one Opera FJ, I can't wait for my other opera fact I know to come up so I can get my monocle and cigarette holder out of storage!

Thanks for the effort, El Morbeedo, and I hope this is the year of the call. Good luck in Beantown.

Same here. They kind of have the same letters but are pretty different. Worked out though.

If something similiar was ever brought back, the idea of having a brief description or something to help pin down what words you're going for to accompany the images would be a good idea I think. I knew 2 pairs for sure, and I also thought of Drummer/Mudder and River/Rider for the other ones but was unsure if that's exactly what was being looked for or if I was approaching it from the right angle. Overall I liked the idea.

When things start to go south for me in a TD, I flip the script and start gunning for last place. 1st, last, 31st... it’s all the same really :)

I avoided the sheep on Q8 but had the dreadful one on Paul Bunyan/lead.

I was worried when people commented there was only one obvious answer to Q8. Because I thought Ron Pa(o)lillo as Horshack would be readily recognized. A lot of them I figured out one half (e.g., Dionne Warwick(e)) but was stumped on the other half. I was thinking Palillo, who's the guy with the ugly spots, they look like inkblots ... oh, Rorschach/Horshack, done.
