Olympic group 71 is tough. Through 3 days, 4 players with 15 or more TCA and a poor guy who is 0-3 with 14 TCA and 17 CAA. I'm in first with 15 but should really be 17 as I sped through questions on day 2 and only put fosbury and 1918 instead of 1916 without thinking. First place for now.

Also had my best ever 1DS in perfect games finishing 6th. If I had moneyed the dart question instead of the QB rating I would've won. I feel like those who nailed the QB rating should get extra!
Good luck on MD11.

Congrats on the 6th place finish. I overlooked the Perfect Game 1ds and would have enjoyed it, but would have been lucky to get 5 right to money. It was a very clever concept and quiz.

I'm underachieving in the Olympic quiz, but it is well done so far. I'm hurrying to finish and just didn't want to wrack my brain to get Castor Semenya, or miss it by a syllable somehow after the investment. But no excuse for not RTFQ and naming Mitt Romney instead of Ann :roll: .

I'll make a PSA and shameless plug - the JBoardLite private rundle for LL86 needs another player to even out :). Come and take on the 6th place finisher and Olympic ML leader! (Password is AlexTrebek)

Yup... I saw your flag combined with kelsot and was like uh oh, going to need my a game the entire time. Best of luck to you as well. Hoping MD11 won't matter....

I play very few of the One-Days, but enjoyed this one: https://www.learnedleague.com/oneday.ph ... enofthe80s
There's a new 1DS today that I bet you'd enjoy/you've enjoyed, also.
