Re: Friday, January 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I can name one city in Northern Ireland. (London)Derry isn't it. Amen, brother. On the other hand I was pretty certain that President Lincoln didn't name General Lee to head the Union Army. :roll: (And that it wasn't General Custard either) To be fair, if it were Lee, "what could possibly go wrong?...

Archive playthrough: Coryat $36,600 (45R, 0W) DD 3/3 FJ :( Had a bit of a tough time in DJ... being unable to think of one word in a song lyric I otherwise knew cost me 2x 1600. Clammed on "dollars to doughnuts" because I couldn't choose between that and "a dime a dozen" fast enough. On FJ, Londonde...

Re: Thursday, January 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I never root against a player, but this is the outcome I was hoping for. I didn't enjoy Brian's faux Holzhauer technique of mining the bottom row clues to start the game because it seemed like he batted under 0.500 on them. If it wasn't so late, I'd check on that. I don't like it even when they do ...

Re: Thursday, January 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As Expected, a very good Game. Not a Lot of misses. Keeping those DDs away from Brian was Really Big. And yet Zach kept going back to BIOGRAPHIES after the first DD was revealed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Frida and Trotsky? Who knew! I had no idea so I said Kandinsky I had never heard that before, but I read the cl...

Archive playthrough: Coryat $47,600 (52R, 1W) DD 3/3 FJ :mrgreen: NHO distaff, couldn't think of the right Shakespeare quote. Negged with Fergie for Kate Middleton because my brain apparently went back to the 80s for a moment. Honestly didn't know what to expect in the Zach vs. Brian showdown. Feel ...

Boston just doesn't "feel" like a capital to me.
Huh?
State capitals tend to not be in the most prominent city in the state.
I bet Atlanta, Hartford, Providence, Charleston, Indianapolis, Little Rock, Denver, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, and Honolulu would have something to say about that.

Major carnage for me on the GRAMM "E" category, considering pop music is usually a good topic for me. I got Eagles, and then just stood and stared - I knew Eilish, but couldn't get Ariana Grande out of my head. Rapper with "E"? Too distracted by Easy-E, but didn't buzz. I do -know- Eminem, but I do...

Archive playthrough: Coryat $42,400 (51R, 0W) DD 3/3 FJ :( Custer and Crazy Horse Finally cracked $40k and 50R for the first time in a week, and whiffed on a very gettable FJ. Totally missed the word "British" in Corsican $2000, otherwise it would have been a layup. Given the FJ miss, obviously nowh...

Request "Mixed up Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill Hickock" on the weekly poll. (Shame on me.) Got Custer though, thanks to Montana. Absolutely should not have missed the Deadwood part of the clue. I went with Custer and Crazy Horse, because I associate Crazy Horse with SD even though if I'd have th...

I also blew the Daily Double where the key word had both faro- and -equi- in it that lead me to think of horseshoeing.

Golf and others like to comment about math and J! players. The clue is as much math as anything. It would be fun to know how Gabriela connected the Madonna song to a possible two more chart appearances. Am the right age that the song in question was right in my wheelhouse. Even so, initially focuse...

I'm assuming, by the way, that Montenegro is ruled out only due to its size and not also due to the fact that it borders the Adriatic rather than the Mediterranean? I think of the Adriatic as a subset of the Mediterranean, but maybe I'm wrong. It gets a little dicey there with Adriatic vs. Mediterr...

Coryat $38,400 (45 R, 1 W)
DD 3/3
FJ :mrgreen:

Felt a little off my rhythm on these boards. Negged with viejo for añejo - the latest example of where knowing a medium amount of Spanish is worse than knowing none at all.

Managed to reason my way through FJ in about 5-10 seconds.
