Re: Friday, January 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well, I liked that FJ and it's probably because I got it right. :D I really think they were shooting for us to think of someone in the royal family who's not a Windsor by blood. I knew Philip was born in Greece, so figured that means he's got less British blood than the other royals who married in,...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/16/2020 (SPOILERS)

I remember the West Point Mint question from an episode of the US Chase. However, this would make the 2019 part of the clue inaccurate. The West Point mint has been in service a while, but it's typically limited to the fancy stuff (gold, silver, unobtanium, platinum). They have rarely done special ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for Thursday, January 16, 2020 (SPOILERS)

Not a fan... have to bounce back and forth to know which emoji goes with what clue for one. Don't you have to do that when replying in the poll thread? When I reply, all the poll questions disappear and a box opens up for me to type my response. I can, if I need, scroll down to the first post and l...

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

If that coin was made of aluminum, it wasn't floating in water. That looked like the old surface tension trick to me. Yes, of course it was. I had to look it up because I thought it might be hollow. A lot of trouble for a penny valued coin, but that is what the Japanese do. The surface tension even...

Re: Monday, January 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now, with most cable/fiber optic/satellite companies offering their own DVRs, and the elimination of VCRs, it's back to either "record", or occasionally "DVR", so DVR should now be on the tip of the tongue for a modern TV recording device, not TiVo. My mom used to say that she would "tape" somethin...

1/5 for me in RECOGNIZING THE COUNTRY in only getting Argentina from the board game Risk. Bwak bwak on Vietnam & Afghanistan, tad slow for Algeria and failed to get wording hint for Iceland. "roughly a third the size of the contiguous United States" was the only hint that the clue gave. At $200, I ...

Re: Friday, January 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It would have been nice to have retitled one of the categories something like "A CHURCH IN THE COUNTRY" to remind contestants to give the country, not the city. Other than Alex's aside at the category reveal, there's no indication that the response should be a country vs a city, and the confusion w...
