I did consider those some of the others but Church and Mercury were clearly the strongest for 2.

Are you now leaning more towards Court than Eye? (though, as guitar was neutral, means we still have two Aida words left)

Personally, I'd rather do eye, but I'm second-guessing myself. So I'll leave the bonus guess up to you.

CHURCH

Yeah, that sounds good. Church and then Mercury and then, maybe court?

Other possibilities are eye again (A God's Eye is a thing), Giant, maybe Table and Foot if we're thinking about Jesus (though the clue wasn't Jesus, it was God)

You could never tell me to stop loving you, Joth:

Look if dayvigging a cop on day 1 didn't work and trolling my players with a townless mafia setup didn't work, I guess the love of this community is hard to shake.

regarding a few of those decisions.  I feel like raerae's power was to add a "lover" modifier to another player.  If raerae is then Vanillaized, her target still has the Lover modifier (though she has lost hers). 

Like what if a town-parrot targets the vanilla-izer?  Then the Vanilla-izer gets vanilla-ized, but I wouldn't expect all their previous targets to regain abilities. 

I also think that Space shouldn't be able to kill/hide at the same time; that works similar to voluntary scum powers (either use power OR kill, unless you're the last of your kind).  Not sure on the "Weak" modifier on the hider; I never realized that the weak modifier was "standard" on Hider.

But then it's neither here nor there because who dies if that person dies with the modifier?  I no longer had it so they'd be #foreveralone.

I've seen one-way lovers before.

Me too. You know I always tell them it's a toxic relationship and they should get out, but they don't listen and they just end up getting hurt.

I also play Poker. If work sends me to Helsinki as planned next year, I want to play poker with Eevee. I visited the Helsinki casino last year and won $190 off those too-nice Fins who didn't call my bluffs.

True, but as Dominion players, I do think we're more likely to think of "King's Court" when we hear Court.

That said, if you feel strongly about it, I'm willing to defer to you. When I play in RL with my friends, we have a "benefit of the doubt" arrow, similar to the possession arrow in basketball. i.e. we can go with Eye this time, and the benefit of the doubt arrow now points to me, next time we have differing opinions. :)

I love it. And good point about Dominion. Also I guess our turn is over.

Serial Killers usually don't admit to it

I mean, I think Joseph would disagree.

So the question I think we need to ask is why Aida instead of any other opera. Assuming we're actually guessing why ipofanes had in mind, so far, like you pointed out, Aida is a love story. But I'm sure there are other opera love stories.

The two I had suggested, lead and line, are generic for any opera.

So which of court or eye more specific to Aida? I still prefer court on that front (eye just seems like too specific a piece of info, knowing the cover art of one version).

Codenames is so much a game of associations though. So I can see seeing "Eye" and thinking "Aida" because of the visual association. I have a harder time imagining seeing "Court" and thinking "Aida". A royal court is a fairly esoteric use of the word court to begin with, and at least for me I associate it more with middle ages/fantasy courts than I do with Egyptian royalty.

Galz is in Vegas until Monday

Tell him to put it all on red and let it ride. I hear that usually works out.

GUITAR

I think I'd rather do Eye than Court for the 4th, is that crazy?

if there’s a lull, I might run another Bad Idea game some time. People seemed to love it.

Fun fact:

Glooble & I were partners in this game & Joth’s. He started to kinda mention it (“Hey, scum together again!” sort of thing) in the scum QT of Joth’s game, and I was super paranoid about a third partner or somebody in this game getting access to our QT there. 😝 I think I played it off pretty well at the time, but I was sweating for a minute or two!

Glooble immediately realized this and texted me, but I knew there was no one in that QT who was alive in this game, so I told him it was ok. That was a good save by you though. I noticed.

Ha - the production I saw was 16 years ago. That said it was amazing because it was in Italy at the Verona Coliseum!

That's ... pretty much the opposite of a high school production in Cleveland. But the kids did alright.

Since we both agree it's number one, let's go ahead and submit OPERA

For some reason I feel like EYE should be in the mix. I think the official poster/CD art for Aida prominently featured an eye.
