Re: Tuesday, June 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Other than size, is there any reason whatsoever that should lead me to assume this was Concord NH instead of Concord VA? It's not like Virginia was a major source of early Presidents or anything ... Significance? Concord NH is the state capital; Concord VA is a burg of fewer than 1,500 that almost ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Winwood's association with Clapton is starting to ring a bell with me now. My stepdad likes Eric Clapton so he has mentioned Winwood's name to me several times. Still couldn't name any Winwood songs off the top of my head, but I at least remember who he is now. Steve Winwood is kind of an odd rock ...

The remind-alike game was easy today with Lindsay, as from moment one of her speaking (coupled with her appearance) it was Beth Behrs as Gemma Johnson on CBS's The Neighborhood . I had Riki Lindhome - most recently seen in Knives Out but potentially better known as the blonde half of the comedy ban...

Judges .. "Sleeve" for Shoe?: "Wearable term for the box from which cards are dealt for blackjack in a casino"? I'm guessing no, as I'm surprised that I'm not finding much on Google for the term at all .. yet both myself and my g/f, who have spent our fair share of time in the casino (usually at pok...

Surprised the Dakota is running as low as it is. I am from the NYC area and named my son Lennon, so I may be a bit biased on the topic, though.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Someone explain to me why I should know that 9/32 inch is college-ruled and not wide-ruled? Because that means you get 32 lines for every 9 inches and college-ruled paper has 11 inches with 33 lines plus room for a line at the bottom that doesn't count and more than an inch of white space at the to...

Why do they always seem to make these leaps of logic when it comes to my hobbies of choice? :D

Y: The Last Man is the story of *Y*orick Brown. Yes, the Y chromosome is one of the central themes of the story, but it isn't solely or specifically the reason the title is what it is.

I find it hard to believe someone without any clue, with all options available, could stumble upon Firestar... Reads more like humblebrag to me No, because if you knew you were going that deep down the rabbit hole, you wouldn't think you're writing a good clue, imo. Between this one and No Way Jose...

NO WAY JOSE?! Of all the wrestlers big and small, famous or otherwise, they picked NO WAY JOSE?!?! At least Kofi Kingston is a former World Champ and multi time Tag Champ.

Re: Thursday, April 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I love when it's blatantly clear that nobody involves in the clue has any clue about the topic. A while back they had a question about Transformers that picked a character so obscure that I had to look it up to make sure it was even a Transformer, and I'm pretty sure I could name close to 100 of th...

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That FJ could use some copy editing. At first I thought it was asking about an English-speaking country with a Spanish article in it. The actual clue is way less interesting. Agree 100%. My suggested wording: It's the only country in the world whose English name contains a Spanish article. +1 .. I ...

I had a total blank for FJ ... I got myself stuck in "Well 1950s, so sounds like the end of a WW II movie..." :(

Today was also my worst Coryat since I started keeping track at the end of March.
