Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

It's just nuts that I hung on to finish third in Horizon A and qualify. It took a confluence of shattering my previous record for TCA, extremely solid defense, low CAA and even then Blue Lion was right there nipping at my heels with his torrid finish of seven wins in a row. I'd love to make the cut...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 6/11/2020

$12,000 + FJ.
May be my first win from the fourth. With so many TS's, it's amazing we saw almost all the clues.

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for these two questions, but since the last new game is June 12, will we be having a Summer Hiatus Challenge this year? And according to promos for the online test, tapings will be "starting soon," so does anyone know when exactly?

I'm still in first place and haven't lost yet. I have more correct answers so far than the GOAT. 2020 keeps getting crazier and crazier.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

After six straight 5's, something had to give. Yesterday I drank the beer alone and now I'm leading my rundle!
My QvH is 147, so yeah, a correction is coming.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

And I have a DE of .000, thanks to (make sure you're sitting down) back-to-back 9(5)-9(5) ties. I've had 9(5)'s before, and I've given up 9(5)'s, but I can't remember ever doing both in the same game until now. I'm already halfway to my UfPA total from the entire LL80 season!

I'm in Horizon for my twentieth (!) straight season and A for my seventh straight. How have I stayed in A for so long? My career QPct is under .600.

The combined Coryat was the lowest since this game over three years ago: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5488 I got as far as "A Star Is Born" and thought the song had the same name. Nope. 94/141 on FJ's this season. +1 for "idiom" (definitely wrong) and "pugilistic" (definitely accept...

I also set personal records with $43,600 and a total of 51 right, including Final. The only other time I hit 50 right in a regular game was cbec's first game in 2016. I think the quarantine is making us smarter!

38% knew how to convert decimal to hexadecimal? Really?
That might've been the longest I've ever spent on a question. I got it right (and guessed the right answer first) but yikes.

Re: Learned League 84

After eight games, I have a winning record in A... but only one 3-pointer. I figure I'll need at least ten in the final seventeen matches, and a ton of luck, to climb up to the top 3.

Re: Friday, February 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was awfully cruel to make the contestants pronounce Paramaribo. Give the city and ask them to name the country instead. I had Pam-a-ri-bo and lost $2000, then lost another $2000 for saying "sleepwalking" instead of "somnambulation." And then my FJ streak snapped at 9. :x

Interesting interview with the new champ:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10A_cWOde_Y
A lot of it was basic stuff about the show we already know, but she was clearly influenced by a great recent champion. Also a sighting of a different contestant (a JZL) about 4 minutes in. Are they related?

LL84 Rundles are posted. Looks like BlishS has ronan'd his way over to A Horizon. Chalk up another 'L' for me... Yeah, I clicked on the standings and thought the same thing... then clicked on his flag and saw he's facing me on MD1! :shock: I faced the equally formidable DhuwaliaR in the SF&F minile...

48! I'm still in the pool until March so I took it off sherder's video. Were you at the September 2018 audition in Philadelphia? Because March is when my dip in the pool ends too. Also took today's off of the video but only managed 45/50. Totally blanked on a couple I kicked myself for just afterwa...

I think we can all agree that Karen's the best player of the decade. I'd put her at Silver for the next TOC.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My Coryat in Game 2 was twice that of Game 1, plus 200. I was at 0 for a long time in the first round of Game 1. I'm sure many of you had similar experiences. Impressive performances by all three! I'm a fan of all of them but Ken's long overdue for a tournament win... and with the most appearances o...
