Would I have been buzzed if I said "cube, sphere, prism, etc." for "Things That Are Solid"? I checked an online thesaurus for those words and "solid" didn't come up.

Those clues sound good to me. None are synonyms for "solid"; in fact, they are all solid figures.

And by the way, how about "your match" for Things You Meet? Wow, having hours to think helps. :-)

Pedantic, but a cube doesn't have to be solid :). An ice cube is solid, but cubes can be hollow.  At the same time, no, you would not be buzzes for giving it as a clue for "solid things"

when i was watching the X-Ray winner's circle, my mom (who was also watching) noted that they should have disqualified/disallowed that clue as well

even before i told her about this thread's opinions

On the August 7th episode: First $150,000 winner of the season. Congratulations to Tyler, who also won the Mystery 7 trip. The best a contestant can do.

First half-hour: Should have passed on “Sauerkraut” earlier in the main game I’d say.

Something one of the contestants said was beeped, with her mouth blurred when describing “a box”. I’m not sure what is was, but it got a reaction.

“Long lines” and “bad service” immediately came to mind for Things You Complain About. And like the host, I also thought of “Abraham Lincoln’s cabin” for Places You See Logs, but I did think the contestant’s “beaver dam” was good (but not AS good 😊).
 
I too would have been at a loss for a second clue after saying “a trampoline” for Things You Jump On. That cost the contestant precious time. “A workout box” was a good comeback. I am worried about my clue of “an hourglass” for Places With Sand. Is an hourglass a place? Or would the getting the keyword “sand” be enough?  I think it is okay, but of course I would have to accept the judge’s ruling. 😊 “The beach” and “the desert” were fine clues.

On the second half-hour: Tyler, an excellent Pyramid player, is from Anchorage, Alaska. I was there earlier this year. Beautiful scenery.

Three to tie, four to win, all seven to win the trip! Seven indeed! 

I’m old school; I would have said “the film” as well as “the lens” for Parts of a Camera. How about “a basketball hoop” and “a tennis court” for Things With A Net?"

"Phonograph ones" and "hypodermic ones" immediately came to my mind for Types of Needles, which I wouldn't have passed on. Very clever for Tyler to say "coals" after "autumn leaves" and "grass clippings" for Things You Rake, as in "rake over the coals". This threw his celebrity partner for a loop, but he then patiently said "yard leaves" twice, and she got it. Very nice.

Tyler has become the tenth $150,000 winner and only the third person in the Strahan era's history to win that amount plus the Mystery 7. Major congratulations to him. His clue-giving in the $100,000 Winner's Circle was spot-on.

For those concerned with "an hourglass" being disqualified for "Places with Sand," as it is not a place, "An hourglass' interior" would be acceptable.

Now, for the first time since Season 4, there has been more than one $100,000 win this season. Here are the stats of $100,000 and $150,000 wins to date:
  • Season 1 (2016): 2 (no $150,000 wins)
  • Season 2 (2017): 7 (including 3 $150,000 wins)
  • Season 3 (2018): 5 (including 3 $150,000 wins)
  • Season 4 (2019): 3 (including 2 $150,000 wins)
  • Season 5 (2021): 1 (1 $150,000 win)
  • Season 6 (2022, to date): 2 (including 1 $150,000 win)

Ali obviously wasn't thinking "Family Ties" or "Back To The Future" for "Michael J. Fox". and she will never look at Wile. E Coyote and Road Runner cartoons the same way again.

It was almost certainly for the word "dick," as in the famous SNL "Dick in a box" sketch.

There's talk that Anne Heche may be passing away due to being badly burned in a car accident. Her rep says she is not expected to make it.

On the August 14th episode, first half-hour: Impressively quick $50K win!

The first thing that came to my mind was “everything” for Things You Try, thinking of the song from Zootopia. Using the word “new” as in “new shoes”, “new clothes” and “new food” was good. Yep; first “Yahtzee”, then “Monopoly, then “Craps” for Games With Dice. 

I would have added “jigsaw” to “a puzzle” for Things You Put Together (Assemble).

On the second half-hour: I know contestants want to do their best in the main game, but if you only need say 5 out of 7 why not go for the easiest 5? If something is creating even a bit of trouble, I would pass it.

(Blank) through the tulips?

Things That Are Silver? “Old dollar coins” came to my mind first. How about “tarnished forks”? “Grand Central” was excellent from Strahan for Kinds of Stations (all I could think of under time pressure were “gas ones” and “train ones”), but I’m not sure about his “The Great” for Lakes. 

For Harsh Things: “Siberian winters”? I thought “rough criticism” was pretty good; I would have replaced “rough” with “strong”.

My first clue for Things You Look Into was “a crystal ball”.


No $100K tries tonight, and no Mystery 7 wins.

NO Mystery 7 wins
Perfect clue for "Crocodile". "______ Dundee".
