ok we gotta swoop it for the win either way! so here is where I am at I guess:

Ballroom (need 2):
NO = Nut, Time, Spot, Pizza, Aztec, Square, Thief, Missile, Calf, Hole, Scorpion, Luck
Maybe = Table, Court
YES = Crown

*So I think crown is a for sure. But open for debate if you want. However, I think we should put off the other one for a second.*


RUST (need 1):
In order, this has to be Nut->Time->Spot. None of the other words fit from what I can tell. So, I would leave this until the end as well.


ATTACK (3?):
100% Missile  - should be our first guess
Then the other words that can be attack-y = Aztec, Thief, Scorpion?

yeesh we are in a bad spot.

I think we should do Missile, followed by Crown, and then take a closer look at the clues. I can start doing that now. LMK what you think of Missile and Crown.

OOE:

Blue 1 = CRASH: 4; Death, Engine, Helicopter (then we did Piano, probably the last)
Red 1 = Ballroom: 3; Dance (then we guessed Piano, which was blue)

End of round 1 this was the grid:
DEATHAZTECENGINEMISSILECOURT
NUTPIZZATHIEFHELICOPTERHOLE
TIMETABLECLOAKRULERSCORPION
PIANOSQUAREPANCALFLUCK
SPOTDANCECROWNFORESTIRON

* So yeah I think we guessed their 4th with Piano. And I think our other words for Ballroom are CROWN and something.


Blue 2 = Chieftain: 2; Ruler, then passed.
Red 2 = Rust: 2; Iron, then Pan is Neutral

Grid after Round 2:

DEATHAZTECENGINEMISSILECOURT
NUTPIZZATHIEFHELICOPTERHOLE
TIMETABLECLOAKRULERSCORPION
PIANOSQUAREPANCALFLUCK
SPOTDANCECROWNFORESTIRON

*K. So they got 1 more to hit on Chieftain. We have 1 more on Rust, and 2 more on Ballroom.


Blue 3 = Elves: 3; Forest, Cloak, Pass
Red 3 = Attack: Infinite

We be here:

DEATHAZTECENGINEMISSILECOURT
NUTPIZZATHIEFHELICOPTERHOLE
TIMETABLECLOAKRULERSCORPION
PIANOSQUAREPANCALFLUCK
SPOTDANCECROWNFORESTIRON


I think they have all of their CRASH words.
I think their last Chieftain word Aztec.
I think their last Elves word is Time, Thief, or Luck.


Missile (attack 1/4)
Crown (ballroom 2/3)
Nut (Rust 2/2)
Scorpion (attack 2/4)


From there it gets more complicated. but what do you think of that order?

Also what do you think for their Elves ?

The one thing it does sound like we are opposite on is Aztec v Missile.

I think Aztec is a stay away and Missile is a gimme. We can start elsewhere if you want?

Oops, you're tight on numbers, we only need 6 total, so 3 attacks.

Yeah, I missed Aztec for Chieftain, that makes sense. I'm not convinced Piano was their 4th crash, I actually thought Missile is theirs...

But both of those could be Attack, of course.

I guess Missile has to be attack right? But I still prefer Scorpion as my top Attack.

And time for rust is really good. I like that significantly more than nut. I also (still) really like table for ballroom.

So my top 3 for each of our clues are:
SCORPION, TIME, TABLE

Are there any of those you're with which ok with starting?

If so, lock them in.

You can probably convince me on Missile, too.

I still am curious of the strong connection between crown and ballroom. (i had that as a weak connection, but you seem high on it). Can you explain it?

Because if it our word and so are the other 4, we'd only actually need one more after that.

ok so we at a weird junction between you and I on a lot of the word picks.

To start. We agree on Scorpion. your number 1, my number 2. So that is good.

So, we will lock in Scorpion

crown is royalty is banquets is dancing is ballrooms etc. But also Table could be fine. and we need more than one.

I absolutely do not think that we would of got ATTACK as a word with missile on the table. I would very much like to go with Missile next.

Time and Nut I am fenced on. I agree it is a great clue for it, so we can go for it if you want.

It pretty much comes down to Time v Nut or Crown v Table.

I would prefer to go missile, then table, then if you really really want time over nut go time and take it from there.

I agree without any context Attack easily points to Missile. But I could also imagine when in desperation mode to  give a clue that could point to the other team's word hoping the guessers skip it because they think it is the other team's.


But like I said, Missile is so much Attack though, we should go for it.

I'm ok with Missile -> Table -> Time if Scorpion is correct.

Yeah no i get your point i just think that because there are not like ď3 obvious onesĒ for attack anyways, it is unlikely missile is not blue.
If there were like ďoh man these 5 could all be attackĒ then yeah.

If we are both good with missile then

Missile

Ok, sorry for my missile doubt.

So we (unless overlap):
Have 2 left for ballroom, 1 for rust, 1 for attack

I'm still on board with either table or time, probably time a little more.

(I've been thinking about it with rust and the reason I like time, is if the words were iron and nut, there are probably more precise clues)

Yeah you are right. I am good to gambol on Time.

Leaving us with 1 Attack, and 2 Ballroom (assumed).

Last attack is gonna make me puke, but weather or not we go Crown or something else for one of the Ballroom clues, I agree that our next guess would be Table regardless.

So if you are on same page still, go ahead and lock in Time and Table if you are ready :))))

So that would be Aztec/Luck? There's an outside chance of Calf, as a sort of blood sacrifice thing.

I think I agree. Aztec (Cursed Gold type stuff) is the thing that first springs to mind. That leads me to Thief being possible as the second though (Thinking like, Indiana Jones stealing cursed stuff) ... but Luck(y) is the opposite of cursed, which is a decent connection as well.

So then I'm wondering what word I would give if the clues were:

Aztec/Thief: Idol? Treasure? Grail? Gold?
Aztec/Luck: .... Curse? I mean, I don't know that I can think of a better connection, whereas I CAN for Aztec/Thief.

So...

I'm good to lock Aztec/Luck if you are!

Good job team. You were basically always where I wanted you to be. I was a little worried about Missile and Crash and I was also worried about Crash and Court (because traffic court) but no one made that connection.
