Sorry - really long weekend and then spent most of yesterday getting caught up on work (opening 3 new locations to take our area from 5 to 8 in the span of 2 months has been a bit... much :P)

Anyway - I'll get my thoughts down here later today. I'm on a similar, but slightly different page than you guys right now. I've been chewing over a full game state analysis in my head - which breaks down what we have, what we need, what we've been clued, what is likely ours from the remaining set, and what is likely theirs - I think we will need to blind guess at at least one word, but I think we can make a pretty educated guess based off what was clued, and what wasn't (ie - if any leftover word has an association with a previous clue from either side, it's likely neutral or it would've been included in the count for the associated clue).

My instinct is that he’s saying DON’T pick Snake. That there’s NO connection there.

I think “Jazz Grass” is another name for marijuana. So we could go Grass.

Other than that, I’m inclined to lean “South” (Music known in Southern US) and… I don’t know. So South & Grass?

….. But then what?

I’m fairly confident he knows the show. I feel like I’ve seen him reference it on the boards and on Facebook - but I’m NOT confident he would expect us to know the reference.

I’m really unsure with this clue. I definitely think that Mail was our last Claim though (as I thought it was prior to the other team flipping it Red), so I don’t think we should be looking for any more claims.

Let’s guess Pupil, hope that it’s correct, then pass.

If Pupil is right, we’ll need 3 more, which includes one Jazz connection. Joth can clue us on the other two and we can still guess at the final Jazz … and hopefully there will be more of the board cleared to help guide us.

OH!

Ok, it would be wild… but it would be a connection Joth would make (I think):

Snake Jazz is a style of music played in an episode of Rick & Morty on a planet of snakes.

Hmm - I have my initial thoughts, but don’t love anything here.

Silver, Jimmm, do any answers jump out to you?

I could see Pupil (student, in general, though not particular to ‘Jazz’), South (associated with New Orleans, Southern US), Snap (I picture snapping silhouettes and people playing sax in my head), Wind (not a wind instrument, but you blow into a Sax)…

But for almost all of those, why Jazz over Saxophone? I don’t know. Don’t love any of the things coming to mind for me here.

Gonna Pass. If Jimmmm feels strongly we can get his guess in on next turn.

Nice!

Well, that puts us at 4 of 5 with some choices to make.

Relooking, I definitely like ‘Mail’ as the 5th (“Go claim your Mail”).
Silver likes ‘Roof’ as the fifth.
Jimmmmm, do you have a preference?

We could Pass. It’s always a free guess later and we can wait for some more of the board to clear. At this point we have a solid open, and we definitely DON’T want to hit one of their words.

Other reasonable options I see:

Antarctica - As a place, could be claimed.
Pizza - “That slice is mine!”, a reasonable item to claim.
Ivory - A valuable to be claimed.
Pupil - A student could be “claimed”
Rose - If there weren’t a bunch of other better options, I could see this (it’s given in things like ‘The Bachelorette’ I think? To make selections…).

Let’s try Dollar and if it’s wrong, it’s on me! But hopefully at worst it would be neutral.

Ok, convince me on dollar -- I'm not really seeing it.

Generally speaking, I feel like "To Claim a Dollar" or "To claim a buck" is a saying. Moreover though, I feel like a Dollar is something you would WANT to claim. And then I feel like it something someone WOULD claim "Hey, that's my dollar!".

I dunno - on a clue of 5, Dollar just jumped out to me more than most other words, and definitely fell into my top 3.

Both Red.

Red

Spymasters, have a PM about what’s happening here.

What do you mean?

I *think* the concern is to keep responses uniform if possible - so as to eliminate any possible telegraphing - ie. "Both Red" could be construed to mean "they're both red and words I intended in my clue", whereas "Red" could be construed to mean "this is also a red word, but wasn't one of the ones I meant to clue".

I certainly don't think there was anything intentional behind your response - but I would hazard to guess that is vidicate's concern.

Or it could genuinely just be concern over no possible confusion! That the first was clearly stating that the words were red, whereas the second response could indicate red, but could also indicate neutral - so it might not be clear!

I’m good with ‘Mine’ next instead of Dollar - I think they’re both probably Red.

Roof is the only one I don’t really see the strong connection to - but would be fine guessing - I’m not crazy attached to any other options.

I like Flag, and I like Settle. I also really like Dollar in the top 3.

After those, Mine, Mail, Pupil are all good options.

And beyond those there are a lot of other decent choices. Antarctica, Ivory, South, Pizza, Roof, etc

Inclined to agree. There’s maybe some other stretches, or references I don’t get but could see existing… but I would lean Candle & Tuxedo.

Egads!

Sorry - Between the Holiday Weekend, running a location for one of my employees who is in Europe, and agreeing to pick up a little more work this week, life kinda got away from me for the past 5 days!

Good job team! As soon as you mentioned LotR, I recognized the connection - my brain just was drawing blank when I first saw the clue.

I would've been on-board with everything except Himalayas... which didn't quite seem to fit, but I'm glad you went with it anyway and glad I was wrong!

Bleh - lol. I don’t love either, but lean Model.

I’m just trying to think if you might pair {Model, Ace} or {Field, Ace} differently than “Outstanding”.

Ehhhh - and then, I still feel like it could be 6 other things! 😆

Alright. Alright. Let’s try Field 🤞

Hm then again, if you do mean the person, extraordinary is a really good fit, better than field. Maybe I don't agree with myself.

I was thinking Model as in a person, or the profession, yes.

Ace is good, but I don’t like King - both tie to playing cards and Outstanding wouldn’t have been the clue.

There are a bunch of mediocre options for the second word though, with nothing really standing above the rest.

I would be fine going Field second. I also think Model and Parade are pretty decent second guesses.

Damn. Good clues. Really didn’t feel like we had any mistakes, and we were all on the same page - they just got there faster.

I like plastic for sure.

I’m on the fence about Diamond & Mud. If it’s both it doesn’t matter, but if it’s only one (where there’s an overlap with Cleanse) then we should do Mud first.

So I think I like confirming Mud, and then going after what should hopefully be a Red or Neutral Diamond, or we could even consider passing there knowing we can hold it in our back pocket for next turn if needed (although I’m not convinced that’s the best play).

Cool. Not gonna hold things up - I think we all agree on Sink -> Pass and if we’re wrong, so be it.

Bath -> Soul

I think I agree with Sink third, could see Mud too. I would hope at worst it would be neutral.
