    @Professor Phobos what were you intending with your "Chair: Unlimited" clue?

    What about King Corn?
    I know King ended up being one of our people, but I was really unhappy about this comment at the time it was made, because I thought King was one of the intended targets for this clue. "Corn is King" is a phrase, and also "King Corn" is an award-winning documentary.

    Always interesting to hear from spymasters about their intent with various clues - I agree that I'd like to hear what was intended with Chair = Unlimited, whether Diamond Shark was intended, what was up with that "Yarbro" clue, etc.

    I have never heard of either of those things tbh, and had to draw the picture to convey the joke I was trying to push for.
    Had this been in person, I would have conveyed this through the sound of King Corn or chest beating.

    So, my understanding of "Unlimited" was that it meant at least one was from before, not only one was a new clue. Chair was meant to get you guys Back and Square, and Unlimited was supposed to get you Diamond as had already been mentioned. I actually contemplated Shark 4 hoping someone would spot the Battletech reference, but I underestimated the nerdery hereabouts.

    Anyway, Chair and Square. Square backed chairs, four chair legs makes a square shape, etc. Of course Fan Chairs are apparently a thing and fan was the assassin, so it probably wasn't my best clue.

    Nah, Unlimited is just "Guess until you guess wrong". I interpreted it as 1 because a 2 or 3 clue still allows 3 guesses for our 3 remaining agents. I didn't see that allowing 3 clues and communicating "Guess until you guess wrong" weren't mutually exclusive.

    Once my team got there, and realized the author was correct .. I'm surprised they didn't ctrl-find search all of the words to see if they were in a book title.
    In addition to spider they would have found king, which was already taken, and glass which I was going for.

    Basically because Blue Team kept going for 3, I felt pressured to also go for 3.


    Also I guess it was a stretch to connect fuzzy dice with rearview mirror, but the cake song immediately came to mind for me - in the land of race car ya-yas. Had red team guessed glass previously, leaving two words left I would have said Geth - 2 for watch and dice, haha.

    That was my first time ever as spymaster, so lessons learned!

    Rearview and Dice is obvious when you explain it :)

    The reason I choose Ambulance is that here in Denmark, and I think most European countries Ambulances are smaller than in the US and do have rearview mirror.

    Yeah, about Yarbo, I just looked at her bibliography and somehow missed the Glass title the first time.

    Ambulance was a good guess for Rearview, with the whole thing about "AMBULANCE" being backwards so you can read it in your rearview mirror and all. :)

    Yeah, I both dread and look forward to my first chance to be the spymaster.

    Not going to sign up again for the next few games. Have a bit too much going on, and don't want to keep holding up the game because I forget to look in on the thread.

    Yeah, it was very rough us getting two 3 clues out in our first two turns. I thought you played exceptionally well given that.

    I'd assume: Oil and Mammoth.
    fossil fuels and extinct. First two that come to my mind at least.

    And I'm the only one in a US Time zone, yay.

  • lonelyahavalonelyahava Mortius is correct Move to New ZealandRegistered User regular
    yeah I can agree with that.

    I'd go Mammoth first and then Oil.

  • simonwolfsimonwolf thought that love was science fiction until I saw you todayRegistered User regular
    That seems like the best two, yes.

  • EgosEgos Registered User regular
    ok
    Contact Mammoth

  • simonwolfsimonwolf thought that love was science fiction until I saw you todayRegistered User regular
    Have you considered moving to the future and being closer to your team, Egos

    I feel it would be the best course of action to ensure our success in this game on the internet

    MAMMOTH is a BLUE agent.

    Blue has two guesses remaining.

    only thing I can find is Fossil Wrist PDA which ran Palm OS. But that really seems like a stretch.

    I say pass unless someone has a good reason not to
