Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tonight may be the first time one of my relatives has been mentioned in a clue. Scott Adsit is a distant cousin--his Mom and My Dad are first cousins. Last time I was him was almost 40 years ago.

Re: Tuesday, December 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would they have accepted just "Four horsemen" or would it be necessary to include "Of the Apocolypse?"

Re: Monday, December 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would they have accepted just "Colassus" on the second DD? I got that part, but if he gave me a BMS, I would've been at a loss.

Re: Monday, December 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

On the first DD, would they have accepted just "Rockefeller?" If they needed to BMS, would "John D" without the "Jr" have sufficed?

Would they have accepted "Zosa" for "Xhosa?" I would've gotten it for sure if it were an FJ, but pronouncing it is another matter.

Anyone else get "Bowhunting" for Archery? How 'bout pronouncing ""Nguyen" as "Win?" Counted them both right.

I confused Haydn with Chopin and went with Poland. In retrospect, "1947" should have eliminated that because one would think Poland would not have waited two years to revert back from a Nazi-associated anthem.
I went with Poland as well, simply because I knew the Nazis had invaded that country.

The best way I can describe James' run is, over 21 days, he's averaging close to the previous one-day record. :o

Re: Monday, April 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For lack of a better answer, I said "Algonquin Roundtable" on FJ. I now realize that group had broken up well before '39.

As for James, I think an average Coryatt score of $25,000 speaks for itself.

Am I the only one who expected FJ to be a triple-getter? I had it solved before Alex finished reading the clue.

Bif found and converted all three DDs so he should and did have a runaway. It was as if Bif told his opponents, "Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?" Half of the people in this board are wondering what you're talking about, and the other half (me included) are thinking, "What is Bac...

Instaget FJ! for me. Transcon was a decent guess, but Iditarod? :o
Actually, Iditarod was my first answer before I crossed it out and wrote "Pony Express." I don't think it was a bad guess either, as the Iditarod also started pretty much as a relay race against time.

Maybe bets too much in FJ in a runaway game, i.e. Cliff Clavin

Brooks Brothers came to mind during FJ, but I got thrown but "Elisha," which I mistakenly thought was a woman's name, and instead went with "Abercrombie."

Re: Wednesday, November 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, Casey was in a bit of a tough spot there; unless he was completely uncomfortable with the category, going for the lead seems to be the smart move (although a relatively easy clue in the same category was a TS). It's a little hard to believe that it missed it, although if he's never been to NO...

Definitely. On another note, Emma's closing interview comment was absolutely hilarious (and no doubt true).

I'm one of those who probably never would've gotten FJ if not for Alex's imitation. I don't see the harm in letting him do one every once in a while.

Re: Thursday, September 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would Major League Baseball have been enough for the Arizona Diamondbacks clue? It didn't even occur to me that they might've wanted a more specific answer. Would've been a coin flip if they'd asked me for a BMS. I'd think they'd have to accept it, since despite being two different leagues, MLB is ...
