Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As mentioned above, Alex seemed to state it most every time it was possible to and I don't recall anyone complaining about it then. What's so different now? Alex also frequently pointed out things like "not a runaway game" or "you have exactly half the leader's score", and was criticized plenty of ...

Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

43R. 2/4 on big clues. Blanked on Tbilisi for no good reason, usually don't miss capitals. Missed FJ. I could not think of anything in time and wrote down Shaw just to have something. I wrote down Kafka before the answer was revealed, completely by lucky mistake, but it was after time was up so it w...

43R. 3/4 on big clues. Missed Angina. I've heard that before so maybe it will stick now. Emily seemed like a strong contestant and certainly stood out in this game. I'm rooting for anybody who can break the curse. Whatever the curse is now. Joined Sarah in ringing in and then not knowing Pat's first...

41R. 4/4 on big clues. I knew Buzz Lightyear's name was based on Buzz Aldrin a long time ago. I've probably mixed them up before. Katie was 1/1 on FJ clues when she was not wearing a bolo tie. 0/3 on FJ clues when she was wearing a bolo tie. I finally remembered the diary guy but I've been pronounci...

41R. 4/4 on big clues. Matched Quan and said tarantula. Missed bill of health and said bill of lading. Missed heresy and drew a blank trying to think of apostasy. The Joker clue threw me off and I thought Hildur Gudnadottir was the name of an award in Iceland. I did not realize she was a woman who w...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I knew sinister was related to being left handed and I’ve seen the etymology of ambidextrous somewhere before but I didn’t think of that connection. Went from Spanish derecha to Derek. Kicking myself for missing Dexter and Venice.

40R. 4/4 on big clues. Contemplated Monroe Doctrine and Laissez-Faire. Didn't sound like the Monroe Doctrine to me and thought Laissez-Faire fit better but I went with Monroe Doctrine because of the category and I was a bit surprised it was correct. 4th podium win for me. Earlier today I coincidenta...

45R. 4/4 on big clues. Finally getting Lost Horizon without any problem. Had it mixed up with The Lost World . I got as far as "Danish" and then ran out of time and missed Great Dane. Missed with schnauzer instead of pug. Some clues that I missed that I want to get next time are Josh Gibson, Nolan R...

44R. 4/4 on big clues. I learned about Godspell by watching The Chase earlier this week, hadn't heard of it before that. Spent a lot of time trying to figure out what FJ was asking and then managed to write down the correct responses. It was in the news somewhat frequently that Kavanaugh was a clerk...

37R. 3/4 on big clues. Tough categories for me today. Did not get the Texas/Kansas/Arkansas clue. Got Texas and then tried to think of other states that ended with "S". Got stuck on Massachusetts. Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay is a really enjoyable song. I thought about Ray Charles briefly since he...

41R. 3/4 on big clues. I missed FJ and wrote down "tea time" without being able to think of anything that made sense. I was trying to think of a business specific term like wildcat strike or force majeure that involved a period of time and a type of food but couldn't think of anything. I was closer ...

Re: Proposed Megatournament Structure

A super tournament of champions after every 5 normal tournament of champions would be fun to watch. All the 15 finalists in the previous ToCs would compete in a standard format 2-week tournament. They could find some alternates if some contestants aren’t available or ineligible. It would work better...

44R. 2/4 on big clues. Missed zionism and 10,000 steps. Might have gotten zionism if I had been able to read the text of the clue. Didn't correctly parse the clue for 10,000 steps. I thought they were asking for another name for a pedometer. Wasn't sure about FJ but I knew Elizabeth Taylor was in Ca...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Learned some new things so I'm glad I watched. I don't understand why they're calling Ken "The Professor." It seems a bit forced.

The fast-paced cash builder and final round really contrasts with the 10 minutes they take to pick between the three dollar values.

49R. 4/4 on big clues. I'm keenly aware that there was a clue left unplayed. Although I'm probably being too generous with my scoring. Knowing the significance of and the difference between Leviathan and Behemoth made FJ easy. Got Olmecs on the rebound. Got Tigris on the rebound. Probably shouldn't ...
