Re: Friday, January 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Coryat $32,200 (37R, 0W) DD 1/3 FJ :( Rough game for me. My worst J! round in quite a while (13R/$6200). No idea on DD1, never heard that expression. Forgot the category on DD2 and went with toilet.. :lol: As far as I knew, FJ was "take a stab in the dark at a member of the royal family. They don't ...

That FJ required much more in-depth knowledge of the British royal family than I possess.

Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Given the hint of " colorful class of small, dim stars," brown dwarf and white dwarf were not good guesses. Were either of those the correct response, the writers would have chosen a different adjective. In the recent past, a "colorful" school was Brown University, and a "colorful" stone was browns...

FJ :(

DJ was pretty rough. Three brainfarts on $2000 clues that I should have gotten. Getting a TV category in DJ is always bad news for me. I was proud to have run the geography category where the contestants went 0/5, though.

A big nope for me on FJ. Children's literature is a black hole in my knowledge base. Randomly guessing a Dr. Seuss title was the best I could do.

Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Devon Island" sounds like it could be any of literally hundreds of countries. Well, probably not any of the landlocked ones. (And that's leaving aside the fact that we literally don't have hundreds of countries.) If the counts I'm getting from Google are correct, there are about 146 countries that...

Coryat $30200 (41 R, 3 W) DD 2/3 FJ :mrgreen: DJ was a bit rough. Negged on the $400 clue in Tricky Clues with "Vatican I" and didn't touch the rest of them with a 10-foot pole. Kicking myself for not connecting sharks -> Peter Benchley. One of the few positives: 4/4 on the $2000 clues. Also kicking...

While I think people may refer to "penalty minutes" as "penalties", that's definitely too informal. Isn't Alex Canadian?

The box score if you're interested.
Different things. If you get three two-minute minors, that's 6 minutes but only 3 penalties.
