Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree with Robert here. I didknow this piece of trivia and didn't realize the origin was not more widely known, but it's not at all what I expect from a FJ.

I'm hoping for my first 5/5 week since the Teen Tournament.

I'd say no on Don Juan, as a cursory search suggests the opera is still known as Don Giovanni in Spain.

The Algonquin Round Table, like the Dreyfuss Affair, is one of those concepts beloved by the writers that any prospective contestant absolutely must know.

I'm finishing up mine for next week. If somebody would like to take a look once I'm done it would be appreciated.

Edit: I have an editor now, thanks.

Re: FJs for the 11/25/19 week

I'm surprised about how much harder "Dracula" seems to have been than "New Deal." If one can get past the Irish/British confusion, "character who lives in a cold, beaten-up castle" leads to very few places, it seems to me, whereas "two monosyllables" has the potential to get one very stuck indeed i...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seemed unnecessarily vague for an FJ clue, maybe they thought "battlements" would steer people in the right direction? That has to be the intended TOM; knowing that a "battlement" was part of a castle. I admit that I did not know the term. I focused on "broken", trying to think of characters living...

Re: Thursday, November 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Should have gotten FJ as I am very familiar with the term, but instead I could not get "manifestation" out of my head. And really, except for the whole derived-from-Sanskrit thing, it is not too bad. "Sanskrit" primed me for Hinduism, and I know that manifestations of gods are called avatars in Hin...

They say get there two hours early, but there's usually no reason for that.
I used to have to do that regardless because my somewhat common name was shared with somebody on one of the magic lists, but it apparently got cleared up eventually.

This really should be a tournament, though, of at least 15 players. Roger Craig oughta be involved, as well as Emma, Buzzy, Alex Jacob, and others. I'd put in David Madden and Larissa Kelly as well, especially since they were a part of the winning team in All-Stars. I disagree; there have been enou...
