Re: Wednesday, May 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thankful I was on the Space Needle's Wiki page the other day randomly, although I think I would've gotten to this FJ solve either way. Looked like Jeff was rattled by the DD miss and then ran out of runway to build back up. Low Coryats today.

Re: Tuesday, May 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Enjoyed the game. Got to the FJ solve with maybe 10 seconds left. Jeff could have won with a less risky wager, but he made it count. Defending against third there makes the *most* sense, although she also bet overbig. I went with "pate" for forehead....thoughts? One thing I love about J is learning ...

Re: Monday, May 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

1789 got me to the correct solve, but I worried there was a trick I was missing. Happily, no.

Juliet has been playing well and benefited from keeping the DDs away in DJ. She made it a runaway by one clue, which ended up being moot anyway.

Re: Thursday, May 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rough watch all around. Enjoying an eight-straight FJ streak, though! I think at DD3 knowing the scores and the time left you have to wager it all. Would’ve meant the rare solo solver, but you can’t assume you’ll get the DD right AND get another clue off AND ring in first AND get it right to prevent...

Another cinch FJ in this household. Found the wagering at the end very surprising.

I also said arbitration.

Re: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A lot to write in :30 if you didn't know it early, but found Gulag Archipelago an easy solve. I was wondering about the misspelling but it was moot anyway.

For "armada," I said "force" instead of "fleet."

Re: Monday, May 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ for me, but perhaps a toughie if you don't know the quote. I thought Eliza had a chance to prevent a runaway late with some different clue calls. Moot point anyway with the lone solve.

Re: Thursday, April 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought this was one of the best games of the post-Alex era so far. Congrats to all three players. Matched the FJ solve to avoid feeling left out. There are more than 300 films on my queue that will definitely outlive me.

I remain on Team Ken for a permanent host for a lot of reasons, but Anderson Cooper has been the best guest host by far.

Got to the FJ solve without trouble. It was immaterial, but the $2400 bet surprised me.

Re: Friday, April 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mystified by the bet from second and will be forever. FJ was easy if you've seen the movie and Christoph Waltz's performance. If you haven't, 12 Years A Slave from right around then is a fine guess, although Solomon Northup is well known around here, hailing from Saratoga Springs, ruling out the las...

Re: Thursday, April 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thought the FJ was perhaps over-pinned with four nations and wasn't surprised by the triple solve. Close, strong game.

Re: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was sorry to see Max's nerves get the better of him. This was a different game, maybe, if DD1 was solved. But I fell for the same trap there.

Got the Oldsmobile solve but spent the 30 worrying it would be Pontiac instead. A quick search shows that ended five years later.

I like this one a lot because it's a new spin on a Pavlov with a reverse approach to the image.

Ruled out Orion as a trap and suffered a wound from Sagittarius instead. Silly me!

Nice to see another public radio contestant. Well-played game all around. Briefly considered Emma Goldman but ruled her out and got to Borden in plenty of time. This game seemed high in LT.
