Yes.

Glove seemed most likely to me also, I was hoping they were going to talk themselves out of it again!
Didn't understand where jacket came from here?

I haven't struggled to come up with clues as much as in this game for a while. The board always seemd to work against me.

I'm down more more games!

I'm in for more.

My post mortem:
BURNING (3): Match, Oil, Star
RETURN (2): Trip, Back
CASH (2): Note, Buffalo
CHEROKEE (3): Buffalo, Horse, Pole

First two clues were fairly straightforward (there were several words to worry about for burning, like stick, lab, bark; but I felt confident that the top 3 were the ones you would guess and you did).

For the 3rd clue, I avoided tying just horse and buffalo together because I couldn't think of anything for pole and note. So I went with CASH, thinking of buffalo nickels (and forgetting that my newest partner is not American!). I also, of course, considered COIN, but was worried about drop.

My plan was to end with JOUST - 2, but since it was clear that buffalo was nowhere near your radar, I had to adjust. I hadn't thought of the Native American theme before, but was thinking poles for the teepees. (I was hoping that you would realize if Ground was the third clue, I could've gone with something like PRAIRIE or GRASSLANDS i.e. there was something specific about the Native American theme to pick up on here :)

Coffee filters.
Screen and Film can both serve as filters.
Mail is filtered by like zip code and stuff.
Maple and Honey probably have some form of filtration process.

I like coffee the best to start though.

For this, I think Lawyer and Piano are good. And the third one... possibly Stadium, or Casino?
