...Othello was not the longest play but had the character with the most lines.
According to that FJ, Othello has the non-title character (Iago) with the most lines; Hamlet is still the longest play, and he has the most lines.

Coryats Dennis: 25200 Drew: 4800 Allison: 7400 Combined: 37,200 Those add up to 37,400. You have it right in the archive. (Am I correct in assuming theFJguy is a MarkBarrett alter ego?)

Btw, for future reference: The capital of Ghana is pronounced "uh-CRAW" or "ah-CRAH", not "ACK-ruh" or "AWK-ruh" I've got to be the only person here--if not in the universe--who said Accra for the $400 clue that wanted Dhaka. At least I got it right two clues later, though apparently I've been misp...

Re: Friday, April 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! category had me with no inspirations other than Cleopatra's Needle. I thought of Pikes Peak, in part because for two years I attended a small liberal arts school nestled at the foot of it. Also, at 14,115 feet, it's an eponymous landmark visible from probably a hundred miles to the east, ak...

I will put the under at 35% in the poll, with a chance of the low 20's. I guess the designer's name has some traction, but not to me. Guess I'm one of the lucky few who saw 9/11 and locked in on I ❤ NY in a snap, though I've neither seen nor heard of Glaser's update. The Primer/Primer clue was crue...

Did you notice that the other contestant, who was actually from Michigan, couldn't be bothered to do that to show where Ypsilanti is? Maybe that's the very definition of Michigan cool. Now, on the other hand, if he'd used a part of his hand to represent the very famous water tower where he lives......

Poorly-worded FJ clue. They're better than this. It's less a poorly worded clue (pls note the hyphen is unneeded) than it is kind of pointless and silly, while still gettable if you have a head full of dates. Christian Glossary $1K is a poorly worded clue: A pardoner was someone who sold these to s...

DD2's wording limits it to Robert Frost and his poem while credit to Lindsey for managing to have a word with the required 16 letters and in the ballpark.

Did anyone else have "piece of cake" for "cakewalk"? I did. I don’t see anything that forces you to say cakewalk. +1 for piece of cake. If anything, I think 'piece of cake' was the intended response.

In a classic novel from 1866, the murders of 2 women take place in this city Man, what a rough final. I went with Venice for Thomas Mann's Death in Venice . Published much later than the given year, but it was all I had with such limited wording in the clue. I went down exactly the same path (canal...
