A man named John failed to guess that “John” was one of the most common words beginning with “JO”.
When we do a higher/lower round, like we did this week, we often like to start off with a really easy question to make sure everyone understands the concept. Well all week, we were amazed at the number of players who were eliminated by thinking the Wallabies had scored LESS than 250 points in ALL matches they have ever played against the All Blacks.
If asked to list a number of countries, we will just state for the record that those countries have to actually exist in the word at the moment. No listing countries that used to exist, unless we specify that’s what we’re looking for.
Also, for some reason, we had to clarify that you are NOT one of your own ancestors. (Unless you are using time travel to do things that are morally questionable and really, REALLY gross.)
We got a complaint that one of the picture questions was impossible, until we reminded them that it is quite difficult to get a picture question if you don’t look at the pictures.
When asked a question on movie math, one team guessed that Saving Private Ryan was released in 1989 (it was released in 1998), it was set in 1945 (it was set in 1944), and that the difference between those years was 54 years (it’s 44 years). But we were looking for the difference between the year it was released and the year it was set, which is 54 years. They got every aspect of the question wrong, then did the math wrong, and still got the final answer correct.
See you next week.
