1. I believe everyone knows the rules, but just in case here is the link: https://czechgames.com/files/rules/codenames-rules-en.pdf

2. Before we had established a "no google" rule. We can vote on it, but I think it should stand.

3. Try to be timely, we have some parameters set up from Decrypto we can use, but let's just say try to keep up the pace :)

yeah, think thats it. I will roll the teams and post here and send the Spymasters the grids.

Hello!

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

'And what is it that ye shall hope for? Behold I say unto you that ye shall have hope through the atonement of Christ and the power of his resurrection, to be raised unto life eternal, and this because of your faith in him according to the promise." - Moroni 7:41, the Book of Mormon

Faust has also been incredibly stubborn this game. In other news, it's hot in the summer, and water falls from the sky when it rains.

As a non-native speaker, I would like to be able to sometimes use translation tools, I hope that's fine.

As for the clue: Beach and Pool sound reasonable. The third one could be Air or Shakespeare.

Faust - yeah i think that is fine.
It is more to prevent the data mining aspect of it, like using wiki to crate a link between words. Using it to clear up a language barrier(assume i am speaking for all here) is fine.

Mercury also maybe? It's the closest planet to the sun.

Maybe I have an association that doesn't work with the English word? There is a meaning to swelter in German which is associated to romance, like you're sweltering from longing, or something.

Mercury is a good catch.

I'm fine with Air first, I feel like Pool has a stronger association to Sweltering than Beach though.

I had not heard of that before! I am fine with the order switch.

ok, for the big finish I would be fine with either Beach or Mercury. I sort of lean toward Mercury because in addition to the closest to the sun thing, it's also used in thermometers which are a symbol for extreme heat. But idk, Beach is a more obvious fit.

Let's try Mercury
