Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

Have they passed over NYC in other years? Hopefully that means they'll keep my application on file a few more months, until my 12-month game show appearance window expires (9 months to go!) I don't understand all the wingeing about the photo requirement. You can use one of my photos if you want: ht...

Re: Movie (and the like) Quiz -- General-purpose time-waster

Since the one-named Harvey was accepted, I suppose the Shakespearean one-namers are also good:
Hamlet
Macbeth
Othello
Coriolanus
Cymbeline

That's assuming the ones with titles (e.g., "King" or "Caesar") or number suffixes (Richard III, Henry V) aren't acceptable.

Don't feel like uploading a photo. I'll pass.
You show up at auditions with a bag over your face?

Re: The crisis in TDs

This is just a busy time of year for me. But also, I've checked out a few of them and had no ready answer for two or more questions (mostly in what I'd consider niche areas). So it's the difficulty level as well.

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

I don't have strong feelings about it. If they put the teen champ into the TOC it wouldn't affect whether I watch it. But because the teen tournament has different types of clues, I'm not sure how well they'd do.

Re: TD 401 - Mini-TD #5 - Q2 RESULTS

My Emmy answer was a total WAG. All I knew is the show (The Good Place) has been running for a few seasons now, and he fits one pattern for the kind of actor they like to recognize.

Re: Monday, October 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the Atari game with the same name as a Shakespeare play, I said Othello, which was made for the 2600 (but I don't think it used the rotating controller). My first thought was Tempest, because it sounded like it could be a video game, but then I switched to Othello, because I know there's actual...

It was pretty quick, but theoretically it could have been either "What is a Morte d'Arthur?" or "What is, uh, Morte d'Arthur"?

Re: TD 399 -- Halloween-ish Quiz - FINAL SCORES

Count Chocula was a singleton, and was one of the last entries, too. The negbait was the Kosciusko/Pulaski option. I hadn't known there was also a Pulaski Mountain before this TD, so accepted both. I thought the negbait might be the Flying Dutchman question. Couldn't remember whether "Flying Dutchm...
