Re: Monday, July 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

North Pole was the best thing I was able to come up with, large area without much land. I wasn't that confident, but I couldn't think of anything else that sorta' fit while also having nine letters.

I guessed Kodak for FJ! I seemed to have completely misunderstood what the clue was asking :oops:. Those numbers seemed too big for Kodak, but I couldn't think of another photograph company where 1889 seemed reasonable.

Re: Thursday, May 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't see a single keyword anywhere in this FJ! Could be anyone. How was this 2/3?! "to know our heritage…who we are and where we have come from" is literally talking about roots, making Roots a pretty good guess, and then just naming the author. That being said, it was only after the answer was...

Re: Monday, April 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would "bed and breakfast" have been accepted for the "room and board" clue? I can't remember the exact wording that clue had.

I felt a little bad for Adam. He seems like someone who would've normally had a nice run as champion. Just wasn't happening against the King.

That's too bad. It's not the worst thing in the world, but I'll miss them. Guess we may still see some for answers the contestant knows they aren't getting right, still :).

It's strange to think that James "only" needs about $58,000 tomorrow to get to $1 million, as if $58,000 in one show were a normal occurrence :lol:

I went with Batman, thinking it might've been a joke referencing the Condiment King.

Re: Tuesday, April 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I initiatially had Prince and Elvis, but realized Prince died in 2016 after I remembered where I was working when I found out. This gave me enough time to replace him with the correct answer. I ultimately did go with Prince and Elvis, thinking it seemed pretty easy. I never did get away from Prince...

Re: Monday, April 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not accepting the mispronunciation of Symbionese Liberation Army seemed overly harsh. Don't they usually accept mispronunciations if one could reasonably pronounce the word the way it's spelled? That looks like it could reasonably be pronounced with three syllables.

Re: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I narrowed FJ! down to a coin flip between Morocco and Algeria, and went the wrong way. "Much closer" certainly seemed to point toward those two countries, but I really wasn't sure how to narrow it down to one or the other.

I'm surprised Lindsey's doing so well. Usually people who go rough on the signaling device the way she does have trouble ringing in before everyone else.

I wasted thirty seconds trying to think of a second movie ending in "nbook" :P.

Montreal and Melbourne here. There was no way I was going to remember what years they were, I'm happy enough being able to remember two non-capital M-named Olympic cities, period :D.

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

Daniel Webster twice had a chance to be VP. He thought the job went nowhere. Wouldn't it be ironic if he was wrong? He was, as saying yes either time could have made him POTUS. That was the connection I couldn't make. I had no idea how anything about the clue was ironic. Just name any President, th...

Anyone join me and one of the contestants on the MASSIVELY HONKING HUGE "Cherry blossom" negbait on Flowers for $400? That was downright evil.

I correctly figured that it was someone to do with vacuums... just couldn't get which vacuum guy. I went with Kirby, thinking the picture looked old-timey. Turns out he wasn't British anyway. Ah well.

In retrospect I should've gotten it, but all my mind could do was associate Pretoria with petunias, and wound up picking that one :oops:.

I'm a big fan of Tinker Bell, admittedly largely thanks to The Mouse, but either way, I'd never be able to show my face again if I'd missed this one. That might've been the fastest I've ever solved FJ! :lol:

ISLANDS $400: Earth.jpg With its lack of quotation marks/title case, do you think the judges would have accepted "Earth" for this clue? ;) Ah, I was totally confused by that clue. "Um, Earth?" was my guess, if I'd guessed, but I was too confused to actually give a response to that one. I'd wondered...
