Twelvefootgirl wrenched her knee badly in Ludwig's Castle (Neuschwanstein) two years ago, so this seemed like a little payback to give us a solve for the inconvenience. But I wasn't comfortable that they would require a) knowledge of the name, b) would they accept facsimile spelling, and c) I thought the time frame was a little early (and it was, finished in 1886, opened to public soon after due to death and debt).alietr wrote: ↑Tue Apr 20, 2021 9:30 pmGot Tivoli right away, then considered Neuschwanstein, but figured there's no way they would ask contestants to try to spell it.
Cooper is quite the natural.
We just got to see the last ten clues or so. No critique of Anderson today, but I did notice he threw in unrelated information on the Mystic River author. Not additional information to the clue, but why does he want us smarter? There seems to be a concerted effort to identify every first name for the viewers, and if Alex did it all the time, he made it seem so natural that I didn't take notice. I don't recall Alex giving unrelated tidbits (like other works by authors) in general.
I've heard of Tivoli Fountain(s?), never Tivoli Gardens. I'm not that fond of Italy, and really don't care for Italian food which is highly overrated imho. My German and Dutch business contacts kept taking me to Italian restaurants until I made them stop . At least they rarely use garlic in the "authentic" restaurants we visited.
If you go to Ludwig's Castle, mind your step on the spiral staircases .
