Re: Tuesday, September 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What was the TOM for "judo" on You Gotta Fight for $200? I almost WAGged "karate" because I felt it was "go for the obvious" enough, but nope. Ran Language of Like, but was 0/5 in You Gotta Fight! "Show trial" was my only miss in European History, surprisingly. Blah blah Asia blah blah elephant = In...

Re: Monday, September 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was anyone else thrown for a loop on "It's where the sub-zero goes"? Sub-zero + room led me to "walk-in freezer", which I couldn't quite justify as a "room" and I couldn't for the life of me backtrack to "freezers are usually in a kitchen".

Re: Monday, September 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought the Room category was very poorly pinned. I almost said "walk-in freezer" at $200, I have no idea how "war room" BMSes to "situation room" (not like I've heard of either anyway), and almost WAGged "library" at $800. Also NHO "vestry" to my knowledge. -2/5 in Templeton Prize. Guessed Pulitz...

My son played baseball as a kid with a boy named Cain. Not sure why you would name your son after a person who murdered his brother.

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I totally failed to process "Brazil" in the clue. I guess two keywords is my limit, since that's at least the second time this week where I've choked on a three-keyword clue.

Ran Places of Substance. I also said Darwin on the DD. Worst miss: I had "has lion in the name" + inventor. "Leonard" was in my head and I still couldn't shift gears to Leonardo da Vinci. Hate misses like that. There were two Jameses? How was coffee "obvious" on Potpourri for $800? No guess on FJ! "...

Ran A Shrubbery! and Word Words. 20/30 right in J! was pretty good. Didn't do quite as well in DJ!, but still had a $24,200 Coryat. Film Composition was my only 0/5. "Blah blah blah giant blah blah mollusk" = giant squid, right? Oops, that said bivalve too. Grumble. No guess on FJ! other than "Not P...

Re: ACM Awards category poll (9/16/20 spoilers)

Have seen Ballerini on numerous TV things. Like Hammer and blonde actresses, sometimes the country singers blend together for me. It's easy. Kelsea Barbiedollerini is the 27-year-old who acts like a horny 15-year-old and spends all her songs slobbering over boys. Think of her as version 2.0 of Carl...

Also proud of myself for finally getting Lord of the Flies . 0/5 on European History. Stayed clam for fear of missing the Norway/Sweden coinflip, and not a tiny bit of recogniti...

But does she read the "noosepaper?" Not that I've noticed, but she does say "sundy" for both Sunday and sundae. The "onsweet tea" one is a bit interesting... What's weird is that most of our customers seem to be about 50/50 on saying "hambugger" or "hamburg". Same thing with "cheesebugger" vs. "che...

Anyone else consider Rick and Morty at TV Shows 1600, with "Rick" in the clue? I almost did but stayed clam. Thankfully it kept me primed to give it when it actually was the correct response. My worst guess was probably going Jewish + comedy + TV = seinfeld . Only off by a lot. Funny you should use...

So since they're only picking Californians for now, I imagine that however long a wait exists for us out-of-staters in the pool will not count against the 18 months either?

So is Ken the new Clue Crew? If the audiovisual clues are like that, then I won't mind them as an occasional feature. Also nice to see Ken dial down the cockiness in delivering them. That said, I completely bombed the category. No guess on the first two, and then chickened out on $600 and $800. I jo...
