Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What was with the British Labor party clue? Brandon answered 'Labor', and hearing crickets, specified "The Labor Party". The writers should have had that on the card as a good answer. *cough* Labo u r *uncough* Good one. :oops: In my haste to post about it first I fourgot to cheque my spelling. :(

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I beat all the contestants in getting Iranian hostages. I thought 444 was Pavlov for that. It happens that so many people played 444 on the day they were released, the Michigan State Lottery suspended trading in 444 in its Daily 3 game. In 2015 Congress authorized payments of $4.44 million to each ...

Put me in the FDR group for the therapeutic polio cabin. Easy to get if you know it's an airplane. Aaron definitely improved for his second game. (Rant alert): I want him to do well, but if they give the job to an entitled, unqualified white male, I might :roll: stop watching the show. There are pro...

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instead of "who called the field goal?", how about "who failed to score on 7 tries against the Tampa Bay goal line defense?". I went right to Mr. Rogers just based on the sentiment of the quote and it helped that we just viewed the Tom Hanks movie during the last year. I was wondering about Standard...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

If I dropped in from another dimension, I can't objectively say I'd turn off the TV if Oz was hosting and would leave it on Alex was hosting. I have no sense of nostalgia for Alex, and both Katie and Oz made me chuckle at about the same rate as Alex used to in the span of ten games. I don't recall a...

FJ: I knew it had to be the big waterfall without really knowing which country it is in, one of those South American ones. Came up with it in time after getting "Ribbon Falls" out of the brain. I'll be glad when it is renamed because being the first white guy to see something shouldn't give naming r...

Re: Thursday, April 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That is the church that was disestablished. Full credit. So "The Anglican Church" would have counted? That was the first thing that came to mind for me. I'd say so. Nope. The Church in Wales split from the Church of England. Both are Anglican churches. But it's not wrong. If "church" counts, certai...

I will put the under at 35% in the poll, with a chance of the low 20's. I guess the designer's name has some traction, but not to me. What a good game, and I think the champ opened with four misses in a row. The Primer/Primer clue was cruel. I've never heard the children's book pronounced without th...

FJ: Assume acting and badassery are inherited traits. Name a badass actor from mid 19th century. I picked Booth, but really don't like the pathway. I don't think of acting as a family business, although there are plenty of examples. I'm sure it's the connections, not the inherited talent, although t...

I will double down and agree on this comment. Do you have to say the "Old Course" at St. Andrews? The "New Course" is 125 years old :lol:. (Happy to say I've played both - the New course allows buggies so my 79 year old father could join me). Getting unhinged, and away from Jeopardy, I'd prefer it ...
