Decrypto 3
« on: April 08, 2020, 11:43:56 am »

It's a new thread! I'm going to randomize teams. I'd also suggest opening it up for ~24 hours in case others want to join.

New teams are going to be:

faust & bitwise & DatSwan // ghostofmars & scolapasta & jotheonah

For easy reference, here is the word list generator.

Sure. Unless we get another player we'll have uneven teams though. I'm fine with that, not sure how you guys feel?

I don't mind. Letting in everyone who wants to play is good, and having more people on a team is not clearly an advantage to me anyway.

Gonna roll for how to add them to the existing teams.

Result is... DatSwan goes to bitwise/me, joth goes to ghost/scola

Teams play simultaneously. The rounds play out in the following order:

1) Cluegivers generate a code using the same site, make clues and post them to the game thread.
2) Guessers guess their own teams code. Starting round 2, teams simultaneously discuss about the opponent's clue and try to guess their code.
3a) If you guess the clue of your own team, you post it in the team quicktopic.
3b) If you guess the clue of the opposing team, you post it in spoilers in the game thread.

4) Once all guesses are ready, the cluegivers state their partner's guess, reveal the correct codes and tokens are assigned.
5) Start new round with switched cluegivers.

OK, I'll start. Give me until tonight so I can think some outside of work and post a clue.

you guys may have to bear with me as I figure out how this works. I usually can't wrap my head around new games until I'm actually playing them.

What happens next?

Short answer:

Wait until I post a clue here, then discuss your guess in QT with ghost

Longer Answer:

I'll post a clue here publicly. You will then discuss your guess with ghost on the QT. Once ready we'll post the guess here and confirm correct or not.

The other team is doing the same.

That is Round 1.

In Rounds 2+, we also try to intercept the other teams clues but making a guess.

Thanks scola, that was well-articulated.

So basically we're each playing our own minigame of codenames except there's only 4 words and you can only do one at a time, and the two teams can't see each other's boards at all but have to try to deduce them.

Right, and since we will have to give multiple clues per word, we can't be too specific (unlike in codenames when you you want your 1 clues to be super specific) because that would make it easier for the other team to deduce.

The part I left out was scoring, basically there are two ways to mess up: your team gets it wrong (miscommunication) or the other team gets yours right (intercept). You are allowed one of each; if you get two of either, game over. With lots of tie breaking aspects, if both team lose in the same turn, or if not one loses after 8 rounds.
