I doubly messed up with the wrong Coen Bros. kidnap movie and worse was processing Apia as Suva. Time to study my capitals again before the new season of J! :oops:

What did you mean by "adventure game"?
Teems with quiet fun.

Oof -- I spent several minutes fruitlessly studying the adventure game consonants before admitting defeat. After seeing several answers, I'm glad I didn't spend more time -- I could have studied them for DAYS and still not come up with a reasonable guess -- it was a pretty bleak dance on my part.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Can't believe I'm the only one so far to get the 12-pointer. And I've never played it. :geek:

I've seen covers for "Grim Fandango". The main character gives me Chills. :?

They actually used my "Classic Adventure Game" suggestion? And "Etymology"! Huzzah! Kudos for using an all time great like Grim Fandango, too.

I named the same Coen Brothers movie you did (with a question mark).

Actually came up with Grim Fandango, but had to CLAM since it seemed like a wild guess. Argh!

I almost clammed the 15pter because it seemed too obvious, but the Apia and Pago Pago hints were too strong (J! triple stumpers notwithstanding).

The low get rate for Grim Fandango makes me sad (it would make my inner child sad, but it's long gone). One of my all-time favorites.

I always remember how to pronounce R6D2's 15-pointer by thinking of a familiar jingle: Abalone has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R

I might not have known the intended answer, but I know 'xylo-' means wood

I've got a problem with that question. Unless the intended answer is "metallophone," I think that xylophone should be accepted. Vibraphones have resonator tubes attached, something that wasn't included in the question, and in popular parlance the term xylophone encompasses those versions made with metal bars.

I have a feeling there is going to be a replacement question tomorrow morning. :idea:

In SHC 2015, there was a similar incident where they were asked for a "C" instrument that was part of the name of one of Johannes Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations that was a type of harpsichord. The intended answer was Cembalo, but literally everyone said either Clavier or Clavichord. The person running the SHC then did a replacement for that question the next day. I wonder if the same thing results in this case.

I think the problem with asking for a RQ in this case is "soft" mallets were indicated to point away from popular parlance. It's a very hard question that leads to negging, but it doesn't feel incorrect. You can't easily play the kids' toy commonly (and incorrectly) known as a xylophone with a soft mallet.

I probably should've had an extra cup of coffee this morning! Got the wrong Coen Brothers movie. And I kept wondering if maybe there was an obscure game called Germ Funding. :D I ultimately figured that one out, but couldn't coax the last two dwarf planets responses out of my brain.
