Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Coryat: 45,600 52 R/1 W DD: 3/3 FJ: :( LT: cotija, Fenway Park, snow plow, Bob Kraft I super-hate this FJ! I went with "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," then realized right at the end of the Think Music that it was going to be "Rudolph." A no-TOM, pure trivia nugget is fine for the bottom row, but FJ...

It will be interesting to see whether she can keep it up for several games. I had the good luck to run into something about Don Giovanni in the last week or two, so...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I presume that a first name is always sufficient for a fictional character. If they've made exceptions to this I don't remember them. "Alex from Family Ties" was ruled incorrect on an FJ: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3959 But TBH, I probably said "Napoli" because of Mike Napoli, fo...

I can't believe I'm the first person in this thread to point out how bad Emma's FJ! wager was. Between yesterday's show and today's first two rounds, James accumulated a total of $67,111. Had Emma gone all in, she could have gotten to $69,600, which would have forced James to get FJ! correct. Inste...
