A head for needle could make sense. SO we do still have one more of those and a whole lot of Disney...

Let's see there's the parks, there's Marvel, there's Star Wars, and there's Pixar...

SCREEN has to be.

After that, I don't actually see any that jump out at me... But we should guess something.

Jack / Giant seem decent in that they're fairly tale related. Also I could see part since so many of the movie series have so many parts?)

Train? because you use them to get between the parks?

Are dogs considered a litter? because of 101 Dalmatians?

and then also maybe game (and lesser, switch) because I know there's some vide game involving disney characters.

So lot's to choose from, not sure what I'd like best.

I think Litter (if it does apply to dogs), Giant, Jack, Train would be my top 4. then maybe game. But we could throw silver in there for needle, if we think that that could apply for both?

What's your preferred order of the possible ones?

Disney films and Disney parks.

Silver has to be up there for silver screen for the films surely?

Litter is possible, but I wouldn't put it first.

Thinking about the parks, are there like rollercoasters, ghost trains etc? Train would seem good for that.
Electric seems quite likely there too.

So after Screen, I think I would go something like Silver -> Giant -> Electric -> Train -> Litter -> Jack. Oo, that's 6.

SILVER

I'd prefer to move train up and electric back:

Train -> Giant -> Litter -> Jack ->Electric.

I would also be happy if we guess up to any of the first 3, then reevaluate. (among other things, see how many blue has left and if we can pass?)

Train -> Giant

I'm hesitant about Litter, because it's the kind of connection that might have been overlooked, so might be blue or even assassin.

So we're mostly considering Litter, Jack and Electric.

Also, you mentioned Switch and Part earlier.
Also, is there any connection with Chick? Donald Duck - duckling not chick, but is there another bird character?

So we have three left, and are thinking Litter, Jack, and Electric, in some order.
(and we, well I, also suggested maybe Part and Switch)

I could also see Jacket (I'm sure the disney store sold disney branded jackets). but I don't like it better than the other 3 we have.

They have 5 left, 1 of which is poacher.

We should guess at least 1 more I think. But possibly more as one reason to give a big clue is if you're worried about your opponents.

Electric could also have been for needle? Which either means one of the others wasn't OR it's not our clue as he would'be gone electric 4.

I hear your thoughts on litter, but another reason I like it is because I do associate it with the disney parks (well the opposite, thatt they are litter free). So that'd be another way to get there.

I still like Litter next, but if you don't; I'm also ok with Jack next. I'd also be curious to hear your thoughts on Electric for Needle, and whether that makes it more or less likely are word.

For chick? maybe? I'm sure there are plenty of other birds...

Iago the parrot in Aladdin. Finding Nemo has the seagulls. But nothing that immediately makes me think this would be it. (I was also similarly wondering about Whale)

The needle on an analogue voltmeter etc? Or doing something electromagnetic with a metal needle?

I think if the connection is weaker than the connection between needle and disease then that would amply explain why Galzria didn't give us Needle: 4.

I was thinking a sewing machine, but yeah actually you're examples are great.

I'm ok with electric next. Still like Litter before Jack.

(watch them all be right and this debate is just torturing the spymasters :) )

I want to just go for this. You can't give a 7 clue and then watch your team bail out after 4 or 5.

What could possibly go wrong?

Electric -> Litter -> Jack

Rules question: are we allowed to continue to talk about our turn, when it's the other teams turn to guess? How about after your guesses but before our next clue?

I think the answer to both these is yes, but I wanted to make sure.

Personally, I have always treated it as "don't talk until your turn". But I really do not care. As long as we agree not to WIFOM each other there is no harm in it :P

I think no. I mean, a simple reaction to electric being neutral is fine, but I don't think it's ok to say more really.
