Ok, so thatís faust telling us not to guess football.

I think heís also telling us not to guess change.

I would do Gold next, I think. Seems to have a fairly straightforward connection to Wire.

Well, 42.8% of the words on the board are ours at this point, and thatís before removing things like football based off this clue. So anything that might even be a little bit close in meaning is worth consideration.

Iím good with Gold.

Iíll really try to sit down & think through the words in detail later today.

and then play might be pass?
or stick with the plan and go Diamond/South.

Safe Play would be to pass, but it does give blue theoutside shot.

I mean, Faust giving a 0 clue for kaepernick makes more more confident in Football.

Why do you think Dreams?

We've only got one more, right?

I feel like if diamond or south was the assassin, Scola would have given us a 0 clue about one of them. So I say let's send it and guess one of them. I'm probably leaning more towards Diamond.

Buttonnononomaybe
Changemaybenolikelyno

Pointnomaybenono
Princessmaybenonoyes
Southnomaybemaybe (who did he play for?)maybe

Ok, so I think our words are most likely Princess, Ruler, Cat, Sock, Button, and ... one other.

Sock - What association do you see with Mask and Heraldry?
Ruler - I think this fits Mask for the same reason Princess does - They might attend a Ball or Gala wearing a Mask. It also fits Heraldry. It might also fit Wire... A Wire Ruler might be a thing - but I don't actually know.
Washington - State/Person/DC are the three primary associations I have with the word. I agree "no" on Mask and Wire. I also would say "No" on Kaepernick. Heraldry.... eeeehhhhh?
Cat - Mask is probably the best "fit" for cat between Mask/Wire/Heraldry. Fine with Kaep: 0 clue as well.
Button - Masks can have Button Eyes or Nose. A Push Button could be a connection to wire(s) on a circuitry board. No Connection to Kaep. Heraldry... I agree, maybe.
Change - Mask is possible. Wires get changed out sometimes. Kaepernick fought for change. Heraldry - not exactly a tight association, but maybe.
File - Agree no association to Mask. None to Kaep. Maybe Heraldry - if you're filing down (as in, like, putting the finishing touches on) something. But that's loose. Wire? Maybe?
Point - The end of a wire is pointy is about the best association to be made here I think. Maybe Coat's of Arms come to a point but... eh.
Princess - I agree with Mask and Heraldry associations.
South - Kaep played for the San Francisco 49ers.

So...:

Knowing there are two Mask and two Wire associations out there still:
- I think I like Princess and Cat best for Mask. Although a good argument could be made for Button. A lesser argument for Ruler.
- I think Point and... probably Button? Are the best two fits here. I don't actually think much else even has a fighting chance. Maaaybe Ruler? Maybe File?
- Heraldry probably best goes with Ruler and Princess.

So I think our best guesses are:

Princess, Ruler, Button, Point, Cat... and I guess Sock if you think that's the last one. I don't really have a better guess.
