Re: Tuesday, February 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Archive playthrough: Coryat $42,800 (50R, 0W) DD 2/3 FJ :( NHO tres leches cake. Maybe could have guessed it if I thought about it more. At least going into the clue, I thought to myself "food and drink, $2000 row, bet small." As I mentioned above, got stuck in India on FJ. Three FJ misses in a row,...

Re: Tuesday, February 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wrote Taj Mahal for FJ, knowing full well that would be too easy. Not a fan of that clue - the way it's written, it gets you searching your knowledge base of Indian landmarks and the whole time it's a red herring. Would have preferred if it at least said "South Asian landmark" or something to hint t...

Ken just wanted to brag about how he banged more people than anyone else in Jeopardy! history.

How does "bang" mean "to defeat"?
I don’t get that either. Can anyone use it in a sentence?
If you use it to mean "defeat", esepcially in the context of two athletes, it's going to get seriously misconstrued.

Re: Monday, February 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Archive playthrough: Coryat $36,000 (43R, 3W) DD 2/3 FJ :( IMHO, toughest game in a while. I can see why the combined Coryat was on the low side. Lots of neg landmines to step on. Broke my streak of 9 games in a row over $40k. Couldn't come up with a Bill Withers song on the DD. Didn't know that Aug...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Between the wreck last night and Dale Earnhardt's fatal accident on the last lap in 2001, I think for safety's sake they need to shorten it to the Daytona 498 from now on.

I've heard a lot of orange tan discussions over the last 4 years and it typically leads to heated arguments. Tough FJ for me. Add me as one who’ll be glad to no longer see that awful Olay-sponsored drivel. I hate guest questioners anyway & this week was especially awful. What exactly is "drivel" ab...

Re: Friday, February 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The properties before free parking are ORANGE? Were they ever tan or beige? Like in the 80s? I'm looking at an Etsy pic of a "vintage" 80s Monopoly game, and it's making me feel both sad and old at the same time, because it seems orange to me, but I could have sworn it was more tan. Being literally...

Archive playthrough: Coryat $49,400 (55 R, 0 W) DD 3/3 FJ :( Solid game for me all around, didn't miss more than one in any category. Blanked on Alfa Romeo, otherwise could have ended up north of $50k. (Edit: after watching the episode, I gave myself credit for Bob Dylan, as there's not a chance in ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I could have stared at "nilpferd" for a week and never figured out "hippo". "Amphibious" misled me to actual amphibians and trying to make frog/toad/newt happen from that word. How were you supposed to figure that one out anyway? It's not a cognate nor does it have a recognizable root. How were you...

"Hindenburg" means the town of Hinden; "Hindenberg" means Hinden Mountain and is pronounced differently. So if they're not giving credit for Barry Gordy....
