Re: Monday, July 25, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was an instaget here too.

My understanding was that the current capital of Myanmar is Naypyidaw -- not Yangon as Alex stated.

I felt like I SHOULD have gotten the Carpathian Mountains, and maybe it would have come to me if I'd focused more on Romania in the clue.

Re: Wednesday, July 20, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

Congrats to Mark on punching his ticket to the TOC. Easy board (I got 23 and 28 in the SJ and DJ rounds); and another easy FJ. It's a shame that Zac missed such a gettable DD, as the 10,000 or whatever point swing sure would have made things interesting. Particularly unchallenging, I thought, was th...

Re: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS

If the Mass General DD had been clearer for Tom what was wanted then I have to think he would have been able to figure out mutations. Hitting that would have allowed him to bet less on the dreaded bandicoot DD that ended up costing him the match. Tom played well in so many ways. Bandicoot might be ...

Re: Think Different Returns: Think Un-Different!

Wow. This is way better than I've done in any conventional TD game. I guess I'm really good at following the herd. :D Going in, I was particularly worried about the Stephen King question (because I've read like 30 of his books, so I had difficulty gauging which one would strike a more casual reader ...

Re: Monday, July 18, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Friday showed the potential for Mark to do what he did tonight. It's all about the DJ round as the close first round meant nothing. Put me in the 18 & 25 club for correct clues to exactly match Adam. I should have had 26, but I chickened on Rachel Carson. Mark could only lose tonight with the Zerg ...

Re: Audition Test

Yes, the in-person test is intended to weed out the people who have impressive Google-fu. Which, by her own admission, apparently included the young lady sitting in front of me, who I decided was going to be the second coming of Sarah Vowell. And then the gentleman sitting next to her decided she w...
