    Congrats to Tanya with her big win. let’s see if she can keep it up tomorrow But still though I think this game must have been too quick for Ragavan to keep up, Still he did well with the 54,000 dollars. Karachi is somehow indian, don’t you think so VJ?

      @Lou, It was a fast and well-played game. Each of them were in the lead at different times, but it seemed like Justin was getting outbuzzed in the last round. I thought they were all going to get the final clue so the leader would win. At least Ragavan has that consolation.

      Karachi was part of India in the mid-19th century. Look at this map of 19th century India showing British expansion. It shows Karachi on the far left between 20 and 30 degrees. (The map zoomed up to full screen when I clicked on it). Old maps are cool!

    @Jacob and Rhonda, on the lightning bugs — I lived in Houston for several years before I realized they don’t have them here. I was sitting outside one summer night and suddenly said to myself “Something’s missing.” That was it.

    I was surprised that the final clue threw 2 players, but Tanya was lucky to realize the right answer in time.

      That’s funny how it suddenly occurred to you, VJ. I doubt something like that would ever occur to me, even after several years.

      • VJ says:

        Yes, it was funny, Rhonda. I guess I was expecting to see their little lights dance by now and then. lol. I asked my boss about it the next day and he told me they just don’t have them at all.

      @VJ, that’s surprising… I thought they were everywhere.
