Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was one of those where the FJ answer was so obvious that I was concerned there might be some quirk of geography that actually rendered it incorrect (like how Reno being further west than Los Angeles is non-intuitive to non-locals). I went with Panama City, but I too was wondering if that answe...

For FJ! I went with acrylic painting. I totally misunderstood what the clue was asking for.

I'm guessing Knoxville would be counted as wrong... I think?

Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The most surprising thing to me wasn't that FJ! was a triple stumper (still surprising though), but that none of the contestants even came up with a phrase with two one-syllable words. I'm a bit confused by that.

For the one clue, I spent so long trying to remember Lot's wife's name that I didn't remember her name wasn't known :oops:.

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Jeremiahd? I've never heard that word in my life. I suppose that's my fault for trying to solve it from that half of the clue instead of the "longest book" half. I tried to get something out of diatribe, and just settled on Deuteronomy for being sorta' like that.

Re: Monday, November 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thought I heard Kyle say “tress” instead of “truss” for tying up the chicken. The CC had "trussed" and I went with that in figuring the show workers with 20/20 hearing would neg if necessary if it had been "tressed" or "tress." If Kyle wants to post that he "got away with one" then that would be an...

Re: Monday, October 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wait, isn't a turnip jack-o-lantern still a jack-o-lantern? ...well, Google says yes. I actually thought jack-o-lantern was the trap in that clue, since a jack-o-lantern isn't necessarily a pumpkin, so pumpkin, which does have to be a pumpkin, had to be right... and it was wrong :P. On the other han...

Re: Monday, October 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When the category was revealed, my brother jokingly answered our home town, knowing it was too obscure to possibly be the answer. We kinda' joked about that when the real answer was revealed. "What the heck is Leadville?" A quick Google search reveals... it's a random obscure town. My brother's rand...

I assume "dulcet" is a no-go on Speak Softly for $600? FWIW, I also said "dulcet" I also had "dulcet" A fourth for dulcet And baby makes five! I'm taking points away from everyone because dulcet does not sync with the category, SPEAK SOFTLY. Hushed, muted, murmur and what were the other two? I also...

Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Considering that "Paul Simon" was the correct response for a FJ clue earlier this week, it would've felt odd to have two FJ clues with that last name as the correct question in the same week. It seems like it'd be more strange if sharing a last name by itself would be consciously avoided, without a...

North Pole was the best thing I was able to come up with, large area without much land. I wasn't that confident, but I couldn't think of anything else that sorta' fit while also having nine letters.

I guessed Kodak for FJ! I seemed to have completely misunderstood what the clue was asking :oops:. Those numbers seemed too big for Kodak, but I couldn't think of another photograph company where 1889 seemed reasonable.

Re: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't see a single keyword anywhere in this FJ! Could be anyone. How was this 2/3?! "to know our heritage…who we are and where we have come from" is literally talking about roots, making Roots a pretty good guess, and then just naming the author. That being said, it was only after the answer was...

Re: Monday, April 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would "bed and breakfast" have been accepted for the "room and board" clue? I can't remember the exact wording that clue had.

I felt a little bad for Adam. He seems like someone who would've normally had a nice run as champion. Just wasn't happening against the King.

That's too bad. It's not the worst thing in the world, but I'll miss them. Guess we may still see some for answers the contestant knows they aren't getting right, still :).

It's strange to think that James "only" needs about $58,000 tomorrow to get to $1 million, as if $58,000 in one show were a normal occurrence :lol:

Re: Tuesday, April 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I initiatially had Prince and Elvis, but realized Prince died in 2016 after I remembered where I was working when I found out. This gave me enough time to replace him with the correct answer. I ultimately did go with Prince and Elvis, thinking it seemed pretty easy. I never did get away from Prince...

Re: Monday, April 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not accepting the mispronunciation of Symbionese Liberation Army seemed overly harsh. Don't they usually accept mispronunciations if one could reasonably pronounce the word the way it's spelled? That looks like it could reasonably be pronounced with three syllables.
