May I ask for a point of order on this one? The orange star and the shooting star were VERY different shapes.
Yeah - I'll fix that.
When I submitted shooting star as a response, I actually wasn't 100% sure of another shape of just a star. I just remember very specifically that shape as being introduced for a time when I was a kid. After doing some research, I see there has definitely been various star shapes at different times throughout the years. Happy for the singleton though!

You're welcome, then. Apparently most of the people answering that one were... and it hurts to say this since the '80s don't seem that long ago... getting old like me.

Knew I should have went with the treasure chests.

I love watching all this stuff and also never thought 9 darts would sheep. Just an FYI to darts fans (I am one) that BBC America has been showing the world championships recently...
THANKS for this. I will watch it right after the Chiefs build up a 35 point lead and turn it over to their defense.

Or rather the DOOR with the hidden keyhole. That would explain why I didn't pick that, since I didn't even remember what to call it, just that it had the hidden keyhole.

Do I win some sort of award for having seven CONSECUTIVE sheep answers? Questions 4-10 (well, Q6 was a co-sheep). Goodness...
Holy cow, I didn't even notice that. That's gotta be a record of some sort, right?

We had a three-part second bonus, asking about albums that might've been included on Q6 had they not been compilations or greatest hits albums:

a. The 1984 compilation by Bob Marley and the Wailers that went 15x platinum
Legend (sorry, "Legends" was not accepted)
b. The band that published “Greatest Hits” in 1988, also going 15x platinum, featuring songs from the soundtracks to “Vision Quest” (1985) and “Two of a Kind” (1983).
Journey
c. The solo artist that went 17x platinum with his “Greatest Hits” album in 1974, and whose international farewell tour kicked off in September of 2018.
Elton John

Not that this has ANY bearing, but I did not use a drop either (right?), so my name should be listed above.

And on a more important note, thanks for the fun game, and congrats to the top finishers!!

You did not use your drop or sheep, but you also got Q8 wrong (for saying that 11 was the minimum number of darts needed to win a game of 501), and the bonus requires that you get all 10 questions right as well as saving your drop and sheep.

Journey! Of course. I went ELO in having a blank on what should have been a gimme for movies/soundtrack in that era.

Thanks for the game and congrats to the big finishers.

Thanks for the clarification (and I got another one wrong as well!). I forgot about that part of the statement.
