I'm out of the country, so I'm playing off JBoard.

I got Boardwalk, but not Marvin Gardens; have read Lord of the Flies; Royal Society was an instaget.

I may have goofed on "Royal Society" thanks to Stardust. Got it from Netflix about two weeks before the J! episode, liked it, recently ordered the Blu-Ray to break the $35 limit on an Amazon order. So started rewatching it and one of the first lines:

"Our story really begins here, 150 years ago at the Royal Academy of Science in London, England..."

*shakes fist* Damn you, whoever scripted that line!!
