Re: Learned League 84

In my 11th season, and finally "Annie Leibovitz" was the correct answer for a female photographer question! 4th time I've used her as an answer, but first time with any real confidence. I got all yesterday except Apu, although the only one I was sure of was Siouxsie and the Banshees and that was onl...

Re: Learned League 84

38% knew how to convert decimal to hexadecimal? Really ? That might've been the longest I've ever spent on a question. I got it right (and guessed the right answer first) but yikes. Some might actually know the discography...but I had to do the math In fact, the first mIRC script I wrote converted ...

Re: Learned League 84

It seems that the commish was generous with the Japanese woodblock question. I just guessed Mt. Fuji because it is ubiquitous in Japan and got credit. The message board indicates that anything wave related and even just a guess of "mountain" were also credited. The generous ruling gave me a 3 point...

Re: Learned League 84

Congrats to ClassicRoadster for the 6-pack yesterday to continue the beatdown in our JBoard dummy room rundle. It seems like each day I glance at the questions and think four of them will be a blank submission and gradually fill in guesses. This is the genius of Thorsten's clue writing. By the time...

Re: Learned League 84

It hasn't been huge - as many as 10 people in previous seasons, but perhaps this is due to the fact that there are some heavy hitters making the game not fun for those who don't answer ~4-5 questions a day. It could also be that many people don't have the premier membership ( the benefits aren't hu...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 29, 2020

This test was way harder for me. Got 41 Tues for practice, only 27 tonight which might be my worst ever. I agree with someone else who posted that all the similar themed categories seemed much easier to me on Tuesdays test.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

Wish I had taken it last night, 41 which is my best ever. Missed Byron (Tennyson), Orwell, Ibsen (blanked), Rebecca, Orange (cherry Koin), Genesis, Bizet, sagitarious, and MacBeth. Taking it for real tonight, so hoping for similar questions...

Anyone stave off relegation or get promoted? Let us cheer you on! Well, I did stave off relegation, no thanks to you and your $&@%÷</)! wife! I started MD25 tied for third and lost yesterday, but so did everyone else around me in the standings so I stayed in third and will be in C for the first tim...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Today is simple, if I win, I move up to C. Playing #6 in the Rundle, have a tie against this person. They haven't been in the league long enough to have enough stats for easier defense. Usually I seem to finish my seasons against the top players in the rundle, but this time my last 5 games weren't ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Anyway, as I look on the detailed standings board to see how I can be leading when my correct answer and total match point numbers are eighth in the rundle, I noticed two statistical metrics that I didn't understand: Unforced Points Allowed and Correct Answers Allowed. I think I have an idea what t...

Two sports questions in the same day? And a relatively easy history and pop music for a mid-40s hair band fan? More please... Anyone who knows anything about cycling knows EPO, and I happen to love playing Pai Gow at the casino. And I saw Ratt's current incarnation a couple years ago with Dokken, pr...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Pretty much run the gamut the last few days. First off, I get my best ever showing in MSC with 8/12, almost perfect moneying for 393 points, and highest score in D Magnolia. Who hoo! Then the last MD16-18 happen...4/18 (2,0,2). Ouch. Somehow I went 1-1-1 those three days. MD 16 was frustrating as my...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Yesterday was one of my most frustrating days in 10 seasons. So close to a 4(4)-3(3) win but I a. Talked myself our of Oprah because I thought the question summarized all the books the author had written and I figured she's written a lot more; b. I couldn't name a single Kanye album but left off "co...

Re: LL83: Learned League

At some point, the Koin becomes a coin right? Right? Looking back this season I'm now 0-4 on coin flips, yesterday missing on Copenhagen/Oslo. I was pretty sure Bohr was one or the other but picked the wrong one. Proud to get LA Kings knowing very little about bible books but I am able to name all o...

Re: LL83: Learned League

For the corundum question, my thoughts were it's probably ruby or emerald so I'll just go with emerald. Those 3 points cost me a win 3(3) - 5(3).

Re: LL83: Learned League

I am embarrassed by how long it took me to remember Mildred Pierce . For the golf one, I was like, "Medinah? That sounds familiar. No idea, though. submits THAT's why I know Medinah." Didn’t recognize any of the places but thought golf, bc what else? Then maybe tennis? Thought both too obvious and ...
