    Well 'ball' is a given. After that.... I'm drawing a bit of a blank.

    Lots of things that could do some wrecking.

    Yeah, ball for sure. But if the second one should also be a 'wrecking ____' I have no idea. And if it's just something that can be used to wreck then there are many options.

    Edit: googling around it seems like 'wrecking shop' is a phrase? These youngsters with their slang and their rockabilly music.

    Loathe though I am to go on Urban Dictionary as my top source, you seem to be correct.

    If we get ball, then yeah - it's almost certainly shop.

    A tiny part of me hoped that 'ball' was the wrong answer. Dammit @Preda

    Balls.

    I'm ok with a wrong pick, but I'm dying to know what the clue was actually supposed to be - just can't associate wrecking with anything else.

    King...

    knight?

    I'm not sure I have any idea what the other two might be.

    Edit: There's a restaurant down the street from me called "China King," but I suspect Phyphor wasn't banking on that connection.

    Why would you ever declare unlimited? I'm struggling to see the use.

    if the clue on a previous round was for 5 words, and your team guessed a wrong word on the first guess, then you could give an unlimited clue on the next round so they could try to get the new word(s) you clued them towards plus hopefully a bunch of the ones they missed before.

    So how could I ever refuse

    @Preda I don't think that codeword is spelled the way you have spelled it.

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    Yeah... unless it's a name?

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    Meiling is a Chinese girl's name I think, so could be China and Chick?

  • Jam WarriorJam Warrior Registered User regular
    I'm hoping it's a typo. If not then I've no answers any better than jakobagger's.

    Unless he means the Metal Gear Solid character? Which I also know little to nothing about.

    If anyone is waiting for clarification on the clue word, clarification denied. Just gotta take what the spymaster gives you.

    chirisigtext.png
  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    Ok, well... If it's MGS, then Iron (Metal) and Shadow (stealth game)?

  • Jam WarriorJam Warrior Registered User regular
    Nah, if it were generic Metal Gear he'd be more obvious.

    I reckon China Chick for lack of better ideas.
