Re: Friday, November 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't even use the "practical" part: that just threw me off track for a bit. Musical + 1981 debut + West End? What else could it be? Practical Suburban Strains , The Practical Best Little Whorehouse In Texas , Practical I'm Getting My Act Together And Taking It On The Road , Practical Ipi Tombi ...

I had no idea the name Philip comes from philo + hippo. That's a fun fact. "Island country named for a Spanish king" narrows the field considerably, though.
same here.

Re: Friday, November 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Andrew blew a chance to put the game away on DD3. He was up $23,600 to $10,800 with a single $2,000 clue to play. A wager of $2,001 would have guaranteed the lock. Instead, his admittedly conservative wager of $1,000 left the door cracked open. Lucky for him, Steven could not come up with Cook Stra...

Re: Wednesday, November 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Decided to skip this episode today since the election is more important. Another easy FJ! clue that I got within a few seconds...or maybe I’m one that made it to the school finals in the Geography Bee. :P Geography is one of my strong suits, too, but I was never in the geography bee (or any type of...

Re: Wednesday, November 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I figured they were asking for big countries, so my thought process went like this Spain, yes. France, yes. Italy, no. Greece, yes. Done writing with ten seconds to spare. Greece isn't very big. You skipped at least the following larger European countries: Ukraine, Norway, Germany, Poland, Sweden, ...

Poor Chris.

I thought Mexico + butterflies was something almost every trivia buff knew. I guess not.

I disliked Thursday's FJ! clue (said bipolar), and know absolutely nothing about ballet aside from The Nutcracker.

I just saw Mexico + insect and locked in on Monarch Butterfly.
Lucky for you then, considering there's this rather well-known Mexican folk song called "La Cucaracha" (whose title translates to "The Cockroach")...
