Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

Time to update two of my responses. Just found out a great aunt passed away from Covid-19. Her husband was in the hospital with it, but is now home (and supposedly really confused--my mom said nobody knows if he even realizes what happened to his wife yet). I've seen them maybe twice in the past 15 ...

Re: Private Rundle option for LL86 C/D/E players

Would this be an appropriate place to ask for a referral? I've been playing along (albeit a day behind) for the better part of 5 years now, but my travel/work schedule has always kept me from asking for fear of a forfeit. Now that I'm not doing any international travel for the foreseeable future, I...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Just looked at my ML Olympic Games group 71...quite the murderers row with 6 or 7 people over .725 sports scores... Yikes, going to be tough to advance I'm in group 86 with a certain BarcombF. If you're around here, good luck in a few days! My Book Club group was brutal. I had 5 A and 3 B rundlers ...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I always wear one, but being in a small town in the south, I've only seen at most 20% of people wearing them any time I go to the store. A month ago I'd say the number was <5%.

I don't think I've had it, but we suspect my wife did. I don't know anyone who has passed from it.

Here are the top 5 BWAs. The winner would've been much better, in my eyes, had it been only a single word (since that's what the question asked for). Thought the one that got 2nd was really creative, and was my favorite out of the top 5.

Another middle of the pack finish, so I'll be back in C Prairie yet again. My referral also just told me he had so much fun he'll come back again, and he qualified for C as well, so that'll be great to play against him! Congrats to Boson, as well as to all the others who qualified for the champ & ot...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Apologies to ouachiouat for taking an ugly 3(2)-2(2) victory. Thank you for the 0 on Necco as that was indeed the easiest of the 6 for me as I even have a post about Necco in 2018 current events. Druids for 3 surprised me although I get it with Theatre and Sports I missed looking like sports for lo...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

First 2 days have been right up my alley, with a 8(5)-6(5) win on MD1 and a 9(6)-7(5) (sorry KendallDH) yesterday. Should've had back to back beers, though, if only I'd thought of Anna & the King--brain farted on that one, especially since I've been to a house in Thailand that that king had built. I...

Re: Learned League 84

Well, that was an ego boost and a big surprise. Just beat a certain BackesER in the architecture ML. Had a lucky get on the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, though I may have had it in the back of my mind. Got assigned 3 for Ethiopia, which was a nice reward for always having wanted to go see those ch...

Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

I've passed the test 5(?) times. The only audition invite I've ever gotten was when I was living overseas and couldn't make either it or the alternate date they sent me a few months later. So no option technically works--I've been offered an audition, but couldn't go. I went with passed but no audit...

Re: Learned League 84

Today I had a failure. I somehow read the question about Elizabeth II's newest great-grandchild as saying its name was the same length as hers. I thought, "Well, he's Archie, but A-R-C-H-I-B-A-L-D; E-L-I-Z-A-B-E-T-H. Both nine letters, there you go!" Same. When I saw the answer after submitting it ...

Glad my dad got Prodigy all those years ago. Threw that down as a random guess and got lucky. Another wild guess with Mercedes, and I pulled out the win.
