How exactly did Alex explain the "3 F Club" category? "chieF oF staFF" has four Fs. When they say things like "each correct response will have n Xs", have they ever meant "at least n Xs" rather than "exactly n Xs"?
good point

They have accepted responses of the "at least..." form on the grounds that the category wasn't clear, yes. Though that's not exactly what you're asking...

See the $600 clue in 2 Consonants, One Vowel here:

The second the FJ picture came up, I said, "Hey, that looks like a Dyson ball!" After hearing the clue, I said, "Huh, I guess it is!"

Too bad the Bangor homeboy couldn't pull it out, but a good game overall. :D

We own a Dyson ball vacuum, so FJ was instant for me.

When Archimedes was young and he got a good idea he would yell out "Eureka!"

When he got older and he got a good idea, he would yell out "Electrolux! No, that's not it. Hoover! No, that's not it. Kirby! No, that's not it..."
I prefer to cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Richard Branson was my only guess on FJ even though I knew the segue is anything but a household device.

Coryat: 36,400
46 R/5 W
DD: 2/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Cardinal Richilieu, Columbia University

I thought Dyson Ball vacuum cleaners were fairly ubiquitous and was surprised this wasn't a triple get, but the clue appears to have played pretty tough here as well.
