I was surprised at how well it went; I envisioned a fiasco. I also liked the writers with style category (though Dr. Seuss was too abstruse).

I also guessed Schengen was Dutch, based on "Scheveningen", but I'd certainly have deferred to the card.

In the 1970s, Anthony Davis ran and returned kicks for USC.

I leaned to Philadelphia for John Paul Jones due to Bonhomme Richard, but Philly does seem borderline for "mid-Atlantic".

Before landfill expansion, Pearl Street was the easternmost in lower Manhattan, so oysters was my confident guess for Maryland.

The Cid fought the Moors AND the Christians?! Shine on, you crazy diamond!
I'm smart and I want respect.

Missed The Company's Product $600 and a couple clues in Putting You Through Some Hoops.

My pre-call was Brasilia and my initial instinct on reading the clue was Ottawa, but quickly realized it had to be Canberra. I didn't realize Canberra was quite that old, though. I would have guessed '30s or '40s.

I was thinking of Ottawa (forgetting how recently it was a correct FJ response), my dad said New Delhi, and I gave up. Maybe I would have thought of Canberra if I hadn't shut my mind off at the suggestion of New Delhi, but there's no way I can give myself the benefit of the doubt.

Thanks, MasterCone for the insight on the missed Lichtenstein clue. I'm a little surprised KJ added the grace notes (how Lichtenstein is smaller) after botching the original call. It seems like the wait time from of 8 weeks from October 5 is a lot shorter than the old normal. I saw a taping in December 2017 that didn't show for 11 weeks (I think). That may have been exceptional because of holiday and tournament considerations. More likely, the schedule is tighter now because of all the host brouhaha.

I had no idea there were other planned Capital cities besides Brasilia.

Governor-general in FJ had me thinking of British colonies. After trying to come up with any options, I flat out guessed Australia. Then named the wrong city as capital. :oops:

I think some study of National capitals is in order.

Meh. The game's not nearly as interesting without a strong rooting interest. Plus the steamroller aspect makes it even less interesting. Like many, had the precall of Brasilia, but came to the correct answer quickly.
econgator wrote: Wed Dec 01, 2021 7:31 pm For planned cities, I pretty much thought of Brasilia, Canberra, and -- because I lived 5 miles away -- Levittown, NY, even though the name gives it away that it isn't a city.
It's only one verse, but ...

I never knew Rosa Luxemburg was a painter as well.

Note to self: don't troll KJ if I'm not going to do the due diligence :roll: . Note 2: check the red underline squiggles before hitting Submit. Note 3: where do penguin (opus) and squarekara get all their weird comic panels?

I had no idea Canberra was a planned city...and when it occurred to me as the response I worried maybe Auckland was. But I stuck with the right one....I thought New Delhi was much older.
In addition to the cities already named, I thought Celebration, FL might show up as a response in this category.

Good thing too since Auckland isn't a capital!

I made the Lichtenstein one myself! Part of the subtle point was that both spellings are correct but don't refer to the same thing, so red squiggles won't help here.

If I'd thought of Wellington I might have found that even more tempting... :roll: :oops:
