    Makes sense, actually. Yeah... there aren't going to be more than 3 words connected to Indians.

    Ah well, it was a hell of an effort. Hopefully the blue team doesn't know about President Taft's troubled youth as a member of the Scorpions motorcycle gang.

    What about 'lawyer'?
    Aren't they indian-givers?

    Edit: This jibe would've been more effective in the red team's turn...

    Lawyer and file?
    I had to wiki taft though.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Actually, 'mammoth' 'lawyer' is probably better.

  • azith28azith28 Registered User regular
    definately lawyer first. whats your basis for "File" tho? Mammoth is a bit of a stretch but yeah he was a big guy so maybe.

    No basis for file aside that lawyers use them.
    I've just been googling this guy because I'm not american.

    In fairness I'm pretty sure the only thing most Americans know about him, if they know anything at all, is that he was a big dude and once got stuck in the White House bathtub.

    If he was a famous fatty then Mammoth seems the best follow up.

    Considering how much the blue team was hovering around "Lawyer", I probably would have made a "HUGE: 1" clue and let my operatives fill in the blanks. Taft is pretty good, since even though not everyone will know he was on the Supreme Court, it is fairly common to know that he was physically large. I also found this bit at the end of the game to be funny:

    considering the red team's final clue. It was a good effort!

    Looks like I've got eight names signed up currently for Game 5, I'll start the game up tonight. Feel free to continue to sign up, however - new players get priority in terms of placement!

    I would also play, though given that I am a lawyer, I have to finish crying softly in a corner first...

    I wasn't going for lawyer. I have nothing but respect and was just apalled that my cohorts thought as much.

    As for whether I should have just let them assume lawyer, they seemed to convince themselves that I was going for Pirate so I wasn't sure if that would work. Also, I was personally amused by Taft as a clue and that always wins out.

  • TeucrianTeucrian Registered User regular
    I too would like to express interest in playing again once new people have a chance.

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    Scorpion huh? We were never near that. I guess it's the second degree of separation from Lear -> King -> The Rock. Still.

    Think I signed up! before, but I've been in 3/4 games now.

    This comes back around to the second clue.
    If you had not given us a Pirate clue, we would have guessed lawyer with our extra guess that turn.
    As it was, Occam's razor dictated that Pirate was the 4th rat. Even though it did not seem to have any relationship with the meaning of the word rat.

    ... but I guess if we had only 7/8 clues given to us by you, then we would've guessed lawyer in lieu of anything else.

    Cowboy might've done, but it'd be hard to get those 3 under one umbrella.
