Re: Thursday, April 14, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'd have probably guessed New Hampshire for FJ! if not for the TOM. That might've made it a little too easy, but a right answer's a right answer.

Re: Friday, April 8, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Watching Kim not ring in on that final clue in DJ!... I'm guessing she wasn't quite aware of the spot she was in. At least Ricky got FJ! right, so she'd have lost anyway.

Re: Thursday, April 7, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would have been really tempted to go for a true daily double on the state capital clue, realizing by that point that not only was it an easy category, but a predictable one (there being a limit to just what they could ask, really).

Re: Wednesday, April 6, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, I did think of Charon, but I'm not sure that would've counted (everything going on with Pluto the last few years, all kind of a mess), but since Phobos fit the "fear" part of the clue so well, I didn't really dwell on it. Could Charon potentially have been the correct answer on a question like...

Re: Wednesday, April 6, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I agree on the World Wide Web clue. I had no idea what exactly they were looking for there.

Today's Final being so easy kinda' makes up for yesterday's being so ridiculous.

General Mills = Company
Wheaties = Brand
if they made Frosted Wheaties = product
Aside from me, two-thirds of today's contestants didn't find it clear.

Re: Tuesday, April 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was a terrible final. It was completely unclear whether they wanted the cereal name, or the company that made the cereal and considering two contestants guessed companies that made cereal, and one contestant even guessed the right company, I wasn't the only one who couldn't figure out what the ...

It was so weird to see all three contestants choosing clues top-to-bottom the old-fashioned way :lol:.

Re: Friday, March 18, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For it to be Holmes with that specific a category would've been an absolute joke. Instaget here, and I'm mildly surprised 2/3 missed it. I don't find it too surprising. "When in doubt, go with the most obvious answer that seems to fit" works a lot of the time, and Holmes seemed to fit most of the c...

Re: Wednesday, March 16, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For the FJ! clue I wrote Dumas. Add a "b" and and "s" and you have me for the way I played the clue. The first name I thought was Marquis de Sade, but I did not know enough about him that he wrote and for whatever reason I thought his time was earlier than the Bastille being stormed. With "work" in...

Re: Tuesday, March 15, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I totally bit on the 12:35 negbait on the David Letterman question.

I don't get the BMS on magnetic, for magnetic north pole. Seemed like it went without saying. I mean, what else would it be? "North pole" was in the clue!

After Final, I looked up Higgs' and Hawking's ages. If only I knew that before Final came up :oops:.

Re: Friday, March 11, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm guessing that Gordon forgot there was another daily double when he picked the $400 clue over the $1200 one. That could've been a fatal error. I felt so stupid in FJ, guessing the Articles of Confederation, and remembering all too late that no, that was something very different. Kinda' got my Con...

Re: Wednesday, March 9, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

In the "one step forward, two steps back" clue, the graphic they used had two steps forward and one step back. I was half expecting "step out of line" to get overturned since it fit the graphic better than the actual answer did. Wasn't sure since it didn't really fit the clue, but still seemed poss...

Re: Thursday, March 3, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I really didn't like the Final clue today. It came down to a (wrong) coin flip for me whether they wanted the more general Virginia or the more specific Jamestown, since I found the clue vague as to what it was looking for. (Well, the quote, obviously, but I'm not sure how I was supposed to know how...
