Coryat $40,600 (48R, 1W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: LT $10,400 = 4th podium victory If I didn't know better, I'd think some of the contestants were coached to call clues like this: "Dear esteemed Mr. Alex Trebek sir, it would give me great pleasure if you would so kindly take it upon yourself to reveal and...

Coryat $31600 (42R, 1W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: My stats are disappointed that 5 geography+history clues were unplayed. I hereby promise to TPTB that if I should be so fortunate as to get The Call™, I will play fast enough to help get all 60 clues in... I found FJ easy peasy. Geography is a wheelhouse c...

Am I the only one who was thrown off of horseradish by the term "bitter"?

There are a couple US History shared Anki decks out there... one of them is how I knew 1941 --> Lend-Lease Act.

Didn't feel like I had a $39k night, but the numbers don't lie, I guess.

Re: Friday, March 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges? Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer? I can’t see why, since the category was Women Authors. For poll purposes certainly check the box for Isabel, Isobel, Isabelle, etc. as long as...

Not Aaron's night for sure. I felt bad for the guy. I thought Andrea was going to win 2-3 games at least. I did appreciate her use of "Where is ___?" on a geography clue. The little things....

Second night in a row I've missed DD1.

Would have gotten Newfoundland if they hadn't thrown "canine" in there... I didn't know what it had to do with dogs. This episode was very heavy in entertainme...

I can't be the only one who had Cyprus for FJ?
Me too. 1997 didn't sit right with me, but "one country, two systems" led me directly there and I couldn't get it out of my head to think of other options.

Coryat $37,600 (47R, 1W) DD 2/2 FJ :mrgreen: Curses to those slow video clues that cause later clues to be left on the board. Double curses when it's $4800 worth of science! Struggled mightily with current events, was okay on everything else. Cursed under my breath at the category, but 1952 musical ...

Nice way to end the week. Too bad for the video category, would have been nice to see all 61 clues. Negged with Stella on the Streetcar clue.

Congrats to Jessica, she's got a nice run going!

Also bit on Triassic... poll request?

In hindsight, Rex Harrison wouldn't have been a horrible guess for FJ. He won Best Actor for playing Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady (1964). Only problem is, Eliza Doolittle was the Cockney....

Instaget FJ. I think most of us will get it.
I got as far as "well, it must be the male lead in Mary Poppins" but didn't know who it was.

"What major city is Northwestern University associated with?" is a strange choice for a DD, but whatevs.
I agree. That one had me wondering if there was a catch/twist that I was missing.
