Re: Thursday, March 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I started trying to think of an Italian set book but got nowhere. Considered both responses but picked the wrong one.

The lunch break did Oz well as he seemed more relaxed.

I wonder if Amal was instructed beforehand to whistle a tune that is in the public domain.

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Bobby Brown, former New York Yankee who was also a cardiologist, has died at 96. He also served as president of the American League when it was a real job. Oh no! He was client of mine for one of my most fun projects when he was president of the AL. He was a really nice guy. He got me tickets to th...

Re: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Never been to an IKEA store and never had a desire to do so. Don't like Swedish meatballs? The stores can be fun even if you're not planning to buy any of the assemble-it-yourself furniture. I'd have to drive 80 miles to get to one, so I too shall pass. The closest one to me is in Atlanta, which is...

Closing in on 7000 in the archive. If a few more old games pop up in the next couple weeks Aaron Rodgers could be hosting that one.

Ill be Honest, i didnt understand that "Words that start with 2 consecutive letters" category. like 3/5 didnt even start with double letters. Im guessing i Missed something. Totally Misread the FJ Clue. They start with consecutive letters in the alphabet. The example he gave was abacus. Double lett...

Re: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would have had no idea. Never been to an IKEA store and never had a desire to do so. My mechanical skills are severely lacking so buying something I have to build myself isn’t for me. Don’t tell me it is easy to assemble. You haven’t seen me in action.

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You still have to be aware of the Olympic boycott years so it isn’t a dead giveaway. The big help is on the other end. The Depression hint narrows it down to two possibilities and if you know Berlin is 1936 you are home free.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I I butchered the spelling of Havlicek’s name but got credit anyway. Why I didn’t take the easy route and just put Bird I’ll never know. Saved a tie. I played this game through early access and the sandwich question originally also said it was an ingredient in a pilgrim sandwich. Still missed it but...

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don’t think it’s a bad question, but it is a bad Final Jeopardy question. There is no perfect way to figure it out other than just knowing it, but if you recall that the Berlin games were in 1936 and WW2 canceled the 1940 and 1944 games, it gives you a fewer options to work with. Maybe, but yikes...

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What an odd FJ. If you're decent at Sports Trivia it's cake, but as we know, most contestants fail this test. Personally, I certainly wouldn't mind seeing TPTB ramp up the knowledge needed to answer sports clues. Admittedly, it's not Sports Trivia 101, more like Sports Trivia 201. Amal bet $5000 of...

Re: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ pretty quickly but I also thought it was a dumb FJ. Not sure why they didn’t just say Los Angeles. Brotherly love should have been negged for agape. I guess Oz decided to say “yes” before recognizing a contestant today instead of giving the first name of a response. Saves on the archive’s p...

do they maintain that "unluckiest" thing still? I feel like I could be there. It's been that kind of a year.
Someone on there maintains a list of luckiest/unluckiest but I don’t know what all goes into the algorithm that determines it.

He did better than I thought he would, but I'd put him down as a big 'meh'. I guess we'll see with more shows.
I wasn’t impressed with Katie at first but she improved a lot in two weeks.
