So just watching these a bit and I'd put it to the people, but maybe bump that timer to like 90-120 seconds?
As of the last game, we’re up to 2:00 for music rounds and 90s for everything else.

Game 4 is up and can be downloaded from USB charging stations at any NJ Turnpike Service Area. The first two rounds were stellar, including a possible 5-point attempt?? The second half is a tribute to the 1995 Devils except uglier.

Everyone's got a game under their belt now. I can only fit one game in this week, and I've been in touch with two teams. So if I haven't reached out, it'll be at least next week.

Never really realized how "metal" the Power Rangers theme song is. I was thinking a knock-off of Judas Priest for a few seconds.

Yeah this might have been the equivalent of that first Brady-Moss TD against the Jets when the rest of the league went, “uh-oh”.

Episode 5 - In which a favorite emerges and I screw up 3 times immediately after saying "I do this once per game". My life has become cumbersome.

No longer feel too embarrassed about our performance on puzzgrid after watching the RayJays and Graphic Content struggle. This one was even more brutal. But I have to say I’m really enjoying the the games and continue to marvel at your game craftsmanship, Ryan.

Catchin up on Episode 5... My 22 year running law school fantasy football league changed the name to Just The Ten Of Us about 15 years ago and we have the Coach Lubbock Division and Bill Kirchenbauer Division. I still would have gone with 8 is enough, though.

Heh, and I just learned on Sunday that the Southern Ocean is a thing now. My kids thought I was an idiot for not knowing that. I got hung up on the second work having to end in C (Southern Cross, Indian Corn, Atlantic City.) I was struggling to come up with Pacific C, but I guess Coast would have worked.

And how did AJ Feeley not make the list of soccer husbands? He married the hottest one!

Not that anyone needs advice from my dumb ass, but having played one and watched 3 or 4... It really helps to get your reps in and understand the brain of the game master here.

Whereas the first game, I kind of rushed into 1 pointer land, watching Ep5, I would've been able to pluck a few 3 and 2 pointers. That soccer wife one was in my wheelhouse, for sure.

Also, is sancarlos in witness protection?

Ha ha. It was light outside when the game started, and I forgot to turn on a light for awhile after the sun set.

AJ Feeley is only memorable for marrying Heather Mitts. I was actually thinking Koy Detmer until I looked it up. I knew it was a better looking Eagles backup, and the Mormon thing didn't make sense.

Lord knows I'm not one to mess with a game format, but if I were I'd move that section of the game to be the last so that someone needing a Hail Mary could benefit from taking that risk. At the beginning of the game it's not really a consideration that's in play.
