And for knowing while a bat is a mammal itís not as mammaly as the others.

Fun fact: Bats are the second most diverse order (after rodents) in the class of mammals. I would say that platypus (for whatever reason a word in Codenames) is less mammaly.

There's Remake on the board. Lots of Remodel variants/trash which cares about card being trashed lend themselves to keeping Estate in hand.

Also, there's Crossroads in the kingdom, which along with Sheperd would be another reason to keep Estate for milling towards something better than Copper.

partially because as a clue giver it makes me happy if my team figures out my my larger numbered clues.

You are right: Jothenoah must be gloating right now, and deservedly so: what a clue!

I think we don't lose too much if we pass now, but I like WASHINGTON quite a bit better than the alternatives.

What I said:

Agree on your suggestions, including the order.

As for #4: Hmm, you can cannonball into a pool, but also into a well, you need more luck though. I'd rather skip fourth word and save for later.

Wow, DISEASE would have been first guess for me.

Wait, what's wrong with inheriting Death Cart?

"You may trash this or an action card from your hand, for +5" is the new text for Death Cart (one of the online changes made alongside the "Command" type update). The +5 is now contingent on trashing something.

It's still useful if you have something to trash, of course.  You just can't use it as a one-shot Platinum anymore

As if Death Cart needed a nerf. (OK maybe an impersonated Death Cart needs one.)

It was still a fun game, and I had Fair in the game you there was always the extra buy of another Estate. But more often than not there was no action left to trash.

OK, I got a "Definitely okay in my book" from Eevee, so I'm going with it:


Realistically, we need to get all 4, and we (probably) know that 2 of the remaining clues are for AIDA.

So if ipofanes cannot find a good clue for 3, he could find something for the other 2, and says XYZ: Infinity. That way we suspect 2 for the new clue and 2 for AIDA and be able to guess for all 4.

For the record, this would not have been A-OK in my book. But I would not have thrown a fit about it, and definitely did not read this before casting the final clues.

ipofanes, since I don't really know the Aida story, can you explain a little more about the connection to DREAM?

I was going for an opera whose plot was leading to as many targets as possible. Not being an opera buff, I had to look up the plots of various operas on Wikipedia. A dream seems to play a role in the first act. I had the musical in mind but was hoping that the plot was sufficiently close to the opera plot. I cannot plame you for your choices.

Yesterday I thought it was a good idea to inherit Death Cart.

Turned out that I had a poor grasp about what "this" is. Estate would not trash itself (and not give you the Ä5) but would trash an Estate from hand.

As for etiquette, I think it should follow what is fair game in the face-to-face version.

To me, this sounds close to "I'm sorry you sucked", as I can't tell how lucky it was to align Prince with the Hag in due time.
