Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So was this just a FJ! clue that you just knew? I tried everything I could think of stone-related, but could only come up with rock, mortar, pebble, brick, cobblestone, granite, and never got to mason. As I said, I have never seen Mason as a first name before, so I don't think it would've clicked e...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), January 9, 2014

Biggest regrets are the Tungsten question (it was the only answer in my head and I spent too much time trying to find a different, wrong answer), the Byron/Tennyson miss, the inability to come up with Cordial (seems obvious in retrospect), and a couple others. I thought it was a good test, though th...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), January 9, 2014

Well... If I got EVERY questionable answer (had a couple misspellings, can't remember if I included a wrong first name, they key is right, etc.) right, then I'm at 36...but I'm pretty sure a couple of those are probably going to be recorded wrong and I'll fall below. I'll take it but I'm not holding...

That kicked my ass. Definitely tougher than Tuesday, and I think tougher than Wednesday too. I may have cobbled together 35 but not feeling good.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 8, 2014

32 after 37 yesterday, and my test is Thursday. We'll see how that goes. I think my real range is in between those two. It's nice to see sports have disappeared from these tests almost entirely at this point. I disagree :( More baseball questions please! If it makes you feel any better, I wasn't be...

Re: Tuesday, November 5, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Really painful tours category; that's something folks don't notice, especially when the names of the tours aren't helpful. . Wasn't that largely a "name the artist who recorded this album" category? I only remember three of them but they were all album titles anyway. I know the Pink, Britney, and T...

Re: Monday, October 21, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can't wait until they purge the AFI from existence on trivia shows. Their lists are incredibly outdated (or at least skew way towards older movies) and a question like this shows that well enough. Second straight show where a perfectly logical answer is only disproven if you know a really specific...

Ryan Chaffee's video was funnier than most of the comedy on TV. All five were quite good, including Tom's cameo selections.

Re: Thursday, October 10, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The baseball songs category rocketed to an all time favorite level. Great clues for a unique category. A couple great Jeopardy callbacks with both Centerfield (Fogerty FJ) and The Bird (came across it while looking at late round sports tournament clues) too. Basia Bulat's gorgeous Glory Days cover r...

Does anyone use those texting abbreviations? I really don't like their random abbreviations categories.

The music one was suitably weird.

Re: WWTBAM next week

So she took a 25% chance to gain $75,000? Guess she didn't really need the extra money. 250k was easy. I would've jumped 500k too. Wasn't It a 25% chance to go from 100k to 1m? Seems like a reasonable gamble. Unless she got 500k for skipping two Q's. I think you could do a decent job sussing out th...

Re: Anybody applying to NBC's new quiz show?

I'm guessing there wasn't a ton of strategy in there on the final day. Each of them had been there at least a week, and Eric had been there a day. They wanted to make sure he had to feel the heat of a Winner's Row defense and to "earn" his spot. Strategically, it would have been a better choice to s...

Re: Anybody applying to NBC's new quiz show?

I think most of us can agree that this show, while at times compelling, is rather flawed. I've been trying to think of ways they could improve the show and would love to see if anyone had some thoughts on what they could do better the second time around, should that happen. Obviously nothing will ch...

The Jay-Z clue threw me off because the category and every other answer implied a group, oh well. Obviously not in prime J form over here.

Re: Anybody applying to NBC's new quiz show?

Commentary on tonight's episode's specifics below in the spoiler section, but I was underwhelmed too. Way too much fluff. The show needed an introductory segment explaining the quirks of the game itself (the doubler specifically) and then get into it. There's no reason they couldn't have run 1-2 mor...
