Ok, here we go again:

Red goes first
DEATHAZTECENGINEMISSILECOURT
NUTPIZZATHIEFHELICOPTERHOLE
TIMETABLECLOAKRULERSCORPION
PIANOSQUAREPANCALFLUCK
SPOTDANCECROWNFORESTIRON
Crash 4

Crash = Death seems pretty obvious (Potential outcome of any vehicular crash)
Helicopter Crash also seems pretty obvious here.

Past that, it's not quite as clear.

Time Crash - This is a mini-episode in New Who (errr... 2005-2010?) starring David Tenant and Peter Davidson... But this could be an unintentional connection.

Engine failure could cause a Car Crash.

Missiles could cause a Crash?

---

That's all that jumps out to me. Faust, does anything else stand out for you?
Agree with Death/Helicopter. Engine and Missile also came to mind. I could see Piano, thinking about comic strips where a piano falls from the sky.

Let's lock the first two in.

Death

Then

Helicopter

Death is blue

Helicopter is blue


Nice!

Shall we go Engine next? We can consider passing if weíre unsure.

I wouldn't pass just yet, maybe after the next one.

I will say, I want Time to Blue, because I want to believe Joth would have faith in us as f.ds members to get this. But I donít know that I believe itís blue.

I understand the sentiment. I think from a tactical perspective it's probably best to pass for now. We've had a good run and we can use that additional clue later on.

Dance seems like a good first choice.

Then others could be table, piano, square, court, ruler, crown?

I prefer two from the first three over the last three.

Well, that worked out nicely.

Chieftan is Ruler for sure, and then... I assume strongly that Crown isn't ours.

The second word could be Forest? Possibly Aztec, but I think they had a more centralized goverment structure? Calf also very vaguely fits.

Sorry all - had a very long weekend that culminated in an 8 1/2 hour swim and 4 hours on the road home Sunday.

Well, that worked out nicely.

Chieftan is Ruler for sure, and then... I assume strongly that Crown isn't ours.

The second word could be Forest? Possibly Aztec, but I think they had a more centralized goverment structure? Calf also very vaguely fits.

Ruler immediately jumped out.

Aztec and Forest were also the next two I thought possible, but then I also wondered if there has ever been a Chieftain Missile ... I don't know, but it sounds possible.

I'm not at all confident on another guess. We're at 5 of 9 - we could press the advantage and take a shot here, or we could let it sit to see what fills out on the board. I'm more in favor of the latter - take the pass here, wait and see how we're feeling on our next turn.

i think I agree with the pass here, especially since Piano could reasonably have been the 4th Crash word, so it's not like we're looking at 2 unused clues.

Alright, pass

OK clearly, Iron. Probably Pan.

Any others not as strong to me as those two.

And both feel good that I'd prefer those two, before circling back to ballroom. For which I still prefer table, next (I think of ballrooms always being set up for events with tables). Then square or court? (I like those more than crown, and ruler of course has now been ruled out)

Iron for sure -1/2 rust.

Then i think tie between
Pan - 2/2 rust and Crown for #2 of Ballroom.

What you think?
