Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Joe gets the honest dumbass award. :lol: At least it made no difference for anything. The clue stumped me and I could only guess a baseball player I knew died that year in hoping he got appointed to something of note. This is the game! I've mentioned it on this board a couple of times, but I always...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Giving the MCU ML a whirl. How do you remember Stan Lee's barber cameo...but not the -Tesseract-?! It's a small comfort that my scoring actually did match up, more or less, with the overall correct % per clue at least. More comforting was beering it. :lol: I thought about entering this one, but aft...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I added 4/28/93: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6745 I would capitalize Widow Clicquot. I'd never heard of her before. Sounds fascinating. (And we welcome her to the archive as a name in a clue.) https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/the-widow-who-created-the-champagne-industry...

Bob's response on SONGS THAT "DO" is entered exactly as he gave it, so I didn't format it as a title, which would have needed 2 "diddy"s.
Is the clue entered exactly as written as well?
It is now.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

This is Alex's opening from the 5/8/91 game: https://youtu.be/ebs3RCC5VZw He should do that more often to explain how the QF round works and especially to name the viewing options. Without fail every tournament has posters on message boards thinking they have figured out some loophole for those pla...

(I'll pass on the such tiny portion of the Bob Blake) I got it. I needed to feel like I accomplished something today. I did accidentally enter a duplicate Alan, so you may wish to enter a new player 13461 on the next game you do. http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6737 Bob's response on ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I have a memory of a game from the week of the July 4th, 1994, in which the last 4 categories of one of the rounds were STARS, AND STRIPES, FOREVER, JOHN PHILIP SOUSA. The only reason I can be sure of the year is that it was the summer during college when I worked Environmental Services (aka janitor...

Thanks. It was better than she made it sound and if I hadn’t known Alex threw her a curve I wouldn’t have noticed. But I am sure everyone feels their chat segment was worse than it looked. There was a UK Jeopardy on YouTube where the contestants got through both rounds a lot faster than they antici...

This is not really a poll. It's more of an informal query, but I welcome any feedback, private or public. Although as a freelancer I'm busier than ever during the pandemic, I have somehow also managed to be in a position to catch more news as it happens and post appropriate items to the Current Eve...

THE DREADED OPERA CATEGORY Due to COVID-19, St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre rescheduled their performance of this opera to the 9th, 10th, 12th, and 13th of December. What is the Ring Cycle? Good clue, with a tricky TOM, but is the Ring Cycle a single opera? Too bad they couldn't stretch it to a ...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

All I need is one 3-pointer in the last 3 MDs to top my previous record of 15 in a season. That number probably explains why I'm in 4th place right now, even though I'm in the bottom half for correct answers this time around.

I wanted to answer Rum Rebellion, but since "Rebellion" was in the clue, I answered Rum Revolution (and got credit for a correct answer). I assume just "Rum" would have sufficed. Is this...
