Re: Tuesday, June 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

44R. 4/4 on big clues. I've read Prisoner of Trebekistan which talks about the poem and I've also seen a contestant get negged for mixing up Jabberwocky and Jabberwock in the past. I watched the 2010 Disney film Alice in Wonderland recently and they refer to the creature as a Jabberwocky which was i...

They should just do the simple thing and pick a host that will make everybody happy.

Re: Monday, June 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What do people here think about "A Brief History" for $800? They accepted "the War of the Roses". Should that have been negged in favor of the more usual "WarS of the Roses"? Googling the plural returns mostly results about the conflict. Googling the singular returns almost entirely results about t...

Re: Monday, June 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The national institute of health Journal of the American College of Cardiology has used that term, along with many other sources. Maybe it could be noted to avoid the term in the future but “outrage” seems excessive.

Re: Monday, June 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

42R. 1/4 on big clues. Got Kennedy but missed the others. Said Roget. I added Peter Mark Roget and Noah Webster to my list of things I get confused. D'oh! Tough game for me today. Said Robin Hood instead of The Lion King . I went 1 out of 2 for clues that I responded to with Robinhood. Some clues th...

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 ...

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...

So I'm wondering where the writers got "overstory" from... ... ... I imagine use of the word has increased since Richard Powers named his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about trees. Baader-Meinhof in action. Saw this on a recommended reading list yesterday and here it is again. I want to learn more a...

Re: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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...
