Re: Wednesday, April 7, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Glad to see a 3x Winner. Me to, sorta. Actually tonight I was pulling for Amy for one of the dumbest reasons I do anything. At the start of each game I write on my score sheet the names of all three contestants, and it's just way easier to write down "Amy Rey" than much longer names. So sue me. LT ...

Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I take back my initial praise of Aaron yesterday. His delivery is putting me to sleep...I don't know what level of excitement I want in a host, I don't want Mike Richards excitement, that I know. I'm halfway in agreement with you. Aaron is putting me to sleep and I KNOW I don't want him on any regu...

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

To the person who said he listens to audio of the show while driving...do not listen to this episode with this host if driving late at night or if you are very tired. Hopefully he shows more energy in the next nine episodes. Aaron Rodgers is a superb quarterback. Tonight that did not translate well...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

My rankings so far: 1. Mike (which surprised me...I'd never heard of him before he hosted the game). I thought he was wonderful and all we could ever ask for. 2. Ken is #2 but way below Mike in my viewpoint. He was pleasant and competent. 3. Dr. Oz. Also pleasant and competent and way below Mike. An...

Re: Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was a stand and stare for about 15 seconds, then AHA!, then 14 seconds of WECIB. I'll take it. Sure wonder why Jean decided to go almost all-in on FJ wagering, when her chances of snagging the win were right up there with my chances of being voted Miss America. But I guess it's her extra thousand...

On Thursday I had a toss-up between Phantom and Cats.

Re: Monday, March 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't get to see this game (preempted again by damned basketball!) and just looked at this thread.

Seems like a pretty obscure moment in history, and without the Shakespeare angle the clue was ungettable. Glad to see one contestant picked up on that and was nicely rewarded.

I also didn't get to see this game, as it was preempted by basketball.

Hope there's no more of that.

Thanks to the folks who posted the game on this board.

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I have really liked Katie in her other TV work. In this role she came off as so incessantly, almost militantly sweet, that it was hard to watch. Yeah, it's necessary to have someone who is pleasant and is authentically having a good time and is not harsh when players miss stuff, and all of that. She...

Re: FJs for the 3/15/21 week

For some reason, I thought Carrara was spelled C-A-R-R-E-R-A. Perhaps it was because of Barbara Carrera, the sunglasses, or a combination of the two. So I guessed Alabaster too. Exactly. Also thought it was Carrera, and also said Alabaster. So you're saying Alabaster is not an Italian city? Who kne...

This game is a win for the Strong Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "big." --Bob
And it's a loss for the sap who never bothered to study wagering before making his appearance, and threw away the game he should have won.

Sheesh. They never learn. :roll:

FJ needed 'until' the 1980s to make sense. Terrible wording. This. Jon and Tim need to be invited back. As bad as I feel for both of them, I disagree. It was a brutal clue but they both had their chance. What crappy luck to be in the tie like that, forcing their hands to go all in. As it has been s...

Another Notre Dame here. I was unaware that the Louvre was that old. I'm 0/3 in FJs this week for the first time in a while. Well at least I don't feel so all alone in my o-fer-ness. To my brain, this week's FJs have been just brutal. On this one I also immediately glommed onto France and tried to ...

In eighth grade or thereabouts, The XYZ Affair was one of a bajillion things we learned that made me think, "When will I ever need to know this?"

I don't mind Mike's hosting so far. His energy/enthusiasm feels awkward compared to Ken or Alex, but other than that, he's doing a solid job for filling in the gaps. I won't mind seeing him for 8 more episodes. Ditto. I never heard of this guy, literally (OK, sue me, I don't read the credits). When...

How many people got Samuel Barber? I must have confused the clue. For me Barber and Adagio for Strings is insta-Pavlovian, an all-time favorite. But my reading of the clue had it being paired somehow with a composer of madrigals, which seems like hundreds of years earlier. If anyone has the correct...
