TD 412 - SenseiCAY's birthday Mini-TD (Q6 and final standings revealed)

Post by SenseiCAY » Tue Feb 05, 2019 10:35 am

Last minute, but I've gotten morbeedo's blessing to bum his Mini-TD format. Also, 2/4 was my birthday. So these are all topics I like. Specifically, 6 questions from my better LearnedLeague categories, with fewer and fewer available answers in each one.

Rules:

1. No DROP
2. ONE (1) SHEEP allowed
3. No bonuses
4. One wrong answer eliminates you from the game. For scoring purposes, an eliminated player's answers will count toward point totals for other players
5. Usual TD scoring applies - your score is the number of people (yourself included) who gave the same correct answer as you.
6. There are no loopholes - ask for clarifications if you really need it, but don't try to break the game.
7. Submit answers by PM or with this Google form. Answers will tentatively close Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at 5 PM ET.

Here we go!

Q1. Sports - Name a sport that will be a featured competition at the 2020 Summer Olympics (33 answers; we're looking for sports, and not disciplines or events, so if I had asked about the Winter Olympics, "figure skating," "speed skating," and "ice dancing" would all fall under "skating").

Q2. Math - Name a positive prime number under 100 (25 answers).

Q3. Language - My two languages, English and Mandarin, are, by all metrics, the two most commonly spoken languages in the world. Name any OTHER language with at least 70 million speakers worldwide, according to the 2018 edition of Ethnologue. Italian and Vietnamese, with about 68 million each, just missed out on this list. Furthermore, Tagalog probably qualifies for the list, but wasn't included because reasons, so don't pick that one, either (21 answers).

Q4. Games - Give the name of a space on the standard U.S. Monopoly board where you can end your turn and cannot have a house or hotel put on it (14 answers).

Q5. Science - Name a naturally occurring element that is classified as a halogen or noble gas (11 answers).

Q6. Food/Drink - Name one of the five mother sauces of classical French cuisine (5 answers; source: Michelin Guide, Auguste Escoffier).

Thanks for a quick, fun one, even though my over/under for wrong answers is two.

And happy birthday. Our first grandson was born yesterday; nice to know he's in such distinguished company.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Thank you and congratulations!

I also learned that we share a birthday with Facebook, so...there's that too.

We're at 17 players! Keep 'em comin! Obviously, still lots of unused answers, especially in the early stages!

22 and counting, still plenty of early unused answers, and some low-scorers late as well.

Probably a dumb question but I can't look it up for myself without spoiling my response:

For Q1, is there some distinction between "featured competition" vs a regular event?

If there is one, then I don't know about it. If it's listed on the Tokyo 2020 website, I'll count it.

As per tradition, I've messed up the dates on the intro. Closing today, Feb. 12, at 5 PM. We're at 35 entries - get 'em in while you can!
