Re: Monday, October 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Missed final. Not so much of a head slap as - “oh.” Ran the POE”M” category which had nothing to do with poetry! I felt bad for the player who kept coming back for more punishment! I love Poe, but I thought it was a weak category that forced the writers into contortions, which led the players to ab...

Atomic mass and weight are not synonymous, I see that now. But where did chlorine come from? But would the judges have accepted "atomic mass"? That was my answer, since "weight" is variable depending upon gravity, whereas "mass" is constant. We’ll never know! I went back and forth- not sure what I ...

The FJ! clue was such a choke for me that I can only laugh instead of being hauntingly mad at myself. Read the book, seen the miniseries, seen both theater versions (in the same seat) on opening weekend? Check! Sad, sad clown!!

I’m sorry. The what diamond? I can’t even spell it

Ran a few categories tonight but needed extra think time on word origins. Amy was so quick

Garrett met his match today. Not a bad guess on Discworld. Has anyone here heard of Ringworld?

Fascinating. Presumably, they will be bringing in contestants from all over the country, so maybe they will reopen casting soon for the regular season
