Rats. Got all 12 right in Comic Strips, and was just 16 points away from the Championship.
Still, pretty darn good!

I got 10/12. The two I missed were apparently among the "easiest": Pearls Before Swine and No Garfield.... no clue on either. On moneying, I figured that Lucy and Calvinball were the easy ones, but the others I guessed were going to be in a limited %age range, which turned out be kinda true.

I was going to mention this in response to the comments about the American Revolution ML, but it is striking how poor the smiths' grasp on difficulty is. Every smith thinks their 1DS or ML is 'PG-13'.

It’s time to turn the page on the American Revolution ML

FWIW if anyone ever has questions about what was accepted and why or why not, feel free to ask me.

I am one of the sacred few members of the One Day Scorers team! :D

I figured since I couldn't win one, might as well make myself useful.

Film buffs (and others, to be inclusive): My 1DS on Neo-Noir (Film Noir 1960-present) is live at Learned League today.
I'd love to play, but I can't. ;)

Even if I scrapped the original 12 questions and inserted new ones? ;)

If any smith did that, they'd probably be realigned into the Persona Non Grata League. (That's not a bad name for a new league.)

I figured you didn't need to know anything about comics to get Sonja, so I didn't money that question.
