Ok, via RNG:

Red Team: jotheonah, Jimmmmm, Galzria
Blue Team: Eevee, scolapasta, Swowl

We'll cycle spymasters in that order for simplicity sake, so Eevee and I are spymasters first.

I will PM the grid.

So let's start with that: Biscuit

For the 2nd guess, I'm not as much a fan of popcorn as I wouldn't think maybe "bucket' for both that and biscuits? (though that could also lead us to maple or other words). I just don't think of popcorn as a "tray" food.

What about Cherry?

Or more out there, Tip, since you tip waiters who carry trays?

So cherry would be a great one too.
Itís just in movie theaters when you get popcorn and it overflows they normally put it in a tray. But Iím fine with either

Think we should avoid tip for now.

I think Ivory, clearly.

Saturn & Jupiter both jump out at me because of connections to Holstís The Planets - but I donít think either is what weíre going for here.

Maple is, I believe, a high end wood used in pianos. Although Iím not entirely sure why we would be given pianist & not piano.

Beyond thatÖ my brain could see connections to March, Button, Shoe, Tip & VolumeÖ but I donít really know much about pianos or pianists, and again, not sure what the latter would clue that the former wouldnít.

Ooh, good call with Ray Charles. That would point towards Pianist over Piano.

Thereís definitely pedals on a piano - but I donít believe they lock anything. I think they press against the strings inside to change the frequency of the vibrations. They push pads onto them I believe.

Iím definitely good with Ray next if you want to lock that.

Pianos have keys though, and keys are used on locksÖ so you could get there by that extrapolation even if they arenít completely related.

Clearly SHOE. And likely BRUSH. (feel free to lock these in)

What else can you polish? Maybe SWORD or even SKI?

Plus we still have one for trayful.

Sword Ski and Lock would be the only others I see, but I like sword the most.

For the record I was going for IVORY, RAY (for Ray Charles, yes!), and MAPLE (for the Maple Leaf Rag, a famous early ragtime piano piece). I was a bit worried about The Planets, though one of them was mine. And I was very worried about VOLUME, because if I had used piano instead of pianist someone might have thought I was being very clever and referring to the volume marker piano (vs forte). So pianIST was for two reasons -- to evoke Ray Charles and to steer you away from Volume.

I was worried about volume too, which is why I said I wanted to pass without further discussion.

Yeah idk what I was thinking. Scott Joplin songs from 1899 are probably not a reliable cultural touchstone in 2021. But it was funny that Galz got to Maple a totally different way.

I see other possible connections, however I think there wouldíve been better clues if they were ours. Iím not sure discussing them is an entirely good move right now.

Iím good with Silver -> Makeup, unless someone thinks Jimmm wouldíve given us a different clue word for that connection.

Oh and the other trayful was volume, a trayful being a measurement of volume Completely overlooked one might want to polish a sword, not my finest game. Tried to go for shiners brushing shoes for tips, but it was tough to find a single word that didn't have the word shoe in it. I did have some big clues lined up to finish the game if some red words were eliminated, had to start with the trickiest words because of some overlaps like Jupiter/Saturn.

Oh and the other trayful was volume, a trayful being a measurement of volume Completely overlooked one might want to polish a sword, not my finest game. Tried to go for shiners brushing shoes for tips, but it was tough to find a single word that didn't have the word shoe in it. I did have some big clues lined up to finish the game if some red words were eliminated, had to start with the trickiest words because of some overlaps like Jupiter/Saturn.

When you say "a trayful being a measurement of volume" are you saying just as a concept, because you put stuff on trays? Or is that a specific definition? If so, never heard of that before.

Zoinks! A five clue!

Big Ben measures time, plus it's Big, which is a measurement
You can measure things with your fingers.
You can measure things with a pitcher. (I like this one the best)
You can measure area in square feet or square meters.
A sign sometimes gives measurements.
Sailors and meteorologists have to measure the wind.

Tough luck there - big clues can be risky like that...

Before revealing the board, I am curious to see what my team (or anyone) would have done with my other potential clues:

BUS: 2

and after:

UMBRELLA: 3

Ah well. I was really struggling to get 3-clues, and at 7-5 I definitely needed to take some risks.

It seems like it was actually pretty close to working. I knew Wind and Finger were risks, and I was hoping that the conclusion would be that you use your fingers to count, not measure.

And I definitely think steps is a measure, LaLI

So Bus would've been driver and back (trying to avoid, in fact car); but knowing car might get picked, it was my round 2, so that it could be the extra guess the next round

Umbrella would've been shower, wind, and pool (thinking about umbrellas for sun around pools). I also considered some other weather type words (rain, water), but was worried about Africa, or Wine or Pitcher. So would've depended on what words Red got before then.

It's fine if who goes first doesn't switch - I'd rather we keep our same colors. I think switching will be too confusing.

I agree with this, adding rope, and even fire, as possibles for the 3rd. Though i think i prefer roll better than either of those (or mountie).

definitely lumberjack and wood first.

i like roll or mountie for third, or could also be back (backlog is word), kind of a stretch.

My style is more aggressive, and I say we pick whichever is safest, so that if it's wrong we can try a different word with a future extra. I'd go with roll (though back isn't bad either, I could see swowl missing that connection).

I'm also fine being outvoted to pass.

Jimmmmmmm, a mountie is Canadian police.

Yeah. I'm trying to think what in particular ninjas are known for other than stealth and shurikens. Kung Fu seems the most likely I think.
Otherwise, I imagine some ninjas fight with weapons - Sword/Steel. They might Shoot you with a poison dart. They might use Rope to come in through a Window. They probably use Force. There might even me magical ninjas who use a Spell.

And then thereís Dragon, which I feel like is always showing up in Kung fu movies as like the name of an order of ninjas or whatever.

I think we start with Kung fu? Then I like sword, rope, dragon.

I love 5 clues! Though they're risky...

I'd say the first two most obvious to me are BACK and WINDOW.

Maybe FORCE or SPELL. I could also see SHOOT or TORNADO but way less confident about those.

I'd be happy for us to lock in the first two if others agree, and then maybe even SPELL (before FORCE).

I donít like shoot or tornado, really. What about fire (isnít a fire break the area that protects houses?) and tea (the British version of a coffee break, but Swowl is not British at all).

Waiting to hear from EVEE. If we don't by tomorrow, we'll lock in a couple of guesses. (or we could lock in 1 or two now, WCD, if you're happy with the first option or two).

My current guess order is:
BACK -> WINDOW -> SEAL -> SPELL -> FORCE

And I do think Tornado and Shoot are not great.

We also still have one for LOGS, but that could well be BACK...

Oh, yeah, of course that's what I meant.

For me SPELL was thinking of the breaking a curse, or maybe even the D&D way, (e.g. someone casts a charm spell, or something like that).

I'm just haven't heard FIRE break, really.

Since we managed 3 guesses, should we give Eevee another day, or guess again? (I'd rather not pass)

I'm also warming up to TEA. What would your preferred next two guesses be?

I am warming up to spell. We can try that if you want.

Go ask the next person you see if they know what a firebreak is.  If they do, lets keep it on the table.  If they don't, it goes.

OK, still no eevee...

So I walked into a nearby office (masked, of course!) and asked two people if they knew and neither one did.

So let's try SPELL.

If it works, I'm fine with whichever of TEA and FORCE you prefer.

Whew!

WCD, Preference for the next guess? I like the options we have, so prefer guessing to passing. (and getting it right, allows Swowl to only have to connect 2 words next clue)

Sorry guys! Good job team while I was gone!

I like tea the best, but I'm pretty ambivalent between tea, tornado and force.

Thank you for checking on fire for me, Scola. If it turns out to be correct it it will be in the context of the CA wildfires which is pretty specific. But weíll let it go.

Iím having a hard time wrapping my mind around force. Force breaks something? But itís been on your list, Scola, since the beginning so you see something there.

Iíd feel way better about tea if I wasnít so tied to a different culture. But then again, itís not like Swowl is uncultured, and if he had a list of words and tea was on it, heíd be more likely to consider tea-break than otherwise.

Tornado seems more of a reach. Scola, youíve been on fire this gameÖ whatís your preference.

Excellent! Well done, team and great clue Swowl! (I'll be curious to see if we got the actual 5 you were thinking or got a little lucky).

Either way, while we could still have one for LOGS, my likely got it with BACK, and even, if not, it's best to just PASS here with 2 left.

Feel free to lock in, if no objections.

idk guys. I guess I like Force, but I'm not thrilled with any of them. I could support Fire or Mountie. To me Mountie very specifically refers to the Canadian Royal Mounted Police, not just to anyone on horseback.

yes about Mountie, but given that Police is too narrow of a meaning, i would think we should enlarge it. Let's wait for Jimmmmm making a decision

Telescope is indeed Red.

Napoleon was Mountie (you got that connection right - heís normally pictured on a Horse, and he led the military, so there was that connection as well). Third was Cold (Iím pretty sure he crossed the Alps, which was my connection thought there).

I needed something to tie: Mountie, Cold & Dwarf.

The last Ninja was Temple, as in a place to train.

Telescope is indeed Red Blue.

Napoleon was Mountie (you got that connection right - heís normally pictured on a Horse, and he led the military, so there was that connection as well). Third was Cold (Iím pretty sure he crossed the Alps, which was my connection thought there).

I needed something to tie: Mountie, Cold & Dwarf.

The last Ninja was Temple, as in a place to train.

Server & Bean 100%

Server -> Bean

Iím like 80% on Smoothie (They do have frozen, blended drinks soÖ), but I donít see anything better and I think itís better than pass, so Iím good to lock it in too if you are both good with it.

OK, let's see Alive things:

Animals: Kangaroo, Butterfly, Cricket
Plants: Peanut
And jobs? (since people do them): Driver, Thief, Sub(stitute)

Other related words: Heart, maybe some others but all long shots

I don't actually think Peanut or probably any of the jobs.

So I'd go with Kangaroo -> Heart -> Butterfly -> Cricket, in that order.

One you two chime in, feel free to lock in if you agree (or with a different order, though I really like Kangaroo and Heart as the first two before the other two).

I think we should go one of the animals and if it is blue do the rest of the animals then decide on heart.
We did not get "animals 3" though, which is deterring.

You seem to cover most of everything else pasta. Not a huge fan of the profession concept though.

Only thing I see you don't mention is WAGON - i.e. a mafia wagon, so you are alive?

I think HEART -> then the three animals is the way to go. If heart is wrong, then we can pretty surely know it is the three animals and something else and take it from there. If heart is correct, then it is probably the three animals. Or it is at least some of them.

I agree with swowl, first the animals -and then heart. I think if one of the animals was not blue this clue could have been deferred until later hoping the board clears up. Also agree that cricket is the likeliest animal to not be blue.

BUTTERFLY

I'd still rather Heart before Cricket, but don't feel strongly enough, if you both prefer the other direction.

i.e. if it it were ALIVE:1, i'd be sure it was heart over cricket.

(I do think it is these 4, so in the end won't really matter)

Iím more if itís one animal then it is all of them. So i think we got it here bc i donít think we get that hint if cricket is blue and heart is not.
If it is, it just cannot be red. So itís all good with this order :)

I donít like the following from this list and would probably remove them from consideration:

Whistle
Peanut

That leaves us:

Piano (Marriage)
Charge (Starbucks)
Circle (Marriage)
Sub (Starbucks)
Knot (Marriage)
Wagon (Marriage)
Smoothie (Starbucks)

I think Knot is ours for sure, so we have 2-of-3 left for Starbucks, and 1-of-3 left for Marriage after removing Knot.

So we have left:

1 Starbucks in {Charge, Sub}
1 Marriage in {Circle, Piano, Wagon}

I think my preferred order of guesses (we only get one more this round) would go:

Sub > Circle = Wagon > Piano = Charge

But I could easily be talked away from that.

Marriage (3): Wedding, ****, ****
Starbucks (3): Server, ****, ****

Driver: Limo Driver for a Wedding/Marriage
Piano: Decoration or Music at a Wedding/Marriage
Blind: -
Jam: Could be some association with Starbucks
Rust: -
South: -
Charge: Youíre charged for a coffee at Starbucks.
France: Maybe a Marriage destination.
Circle: Marriage Band/Ring
Whistle: Could be a cultural thing for Marriages here, but Iím not aware of one.
Sub: You might sub oat milk for whole milk at Starbucks (or other things)
Snow: -
Knot: Tie the Knot/Get Married
Wagon: ďHitch the WagonĒ is a saying for getting married.
Peanut: Same as Whistle. Might be a connection Iím unaware of in another culture.
Thief: -
Smoothie: You get Frappuccinoís from Starbucks.

I donít like the following from this list and would probably remove them from consideration:

Driver
Jam
France
Whistle
Peanut

That leaves us:

Piano (Marriage)
Charge (Starbucks)
Circle (Marriage)
Sub (Starbucks)
Knot (Marriage)
Wagon (Marriage)
Smoothie (Starbucks)

I think Knot is ours for sure, so we have 2-of-3 left for Starbucks, and 1-of-3 left for Marriage after removing Knot.

After Knot & Smoothie were removed, we have 1 outstanding Starbucks Word clued, and 1 outstanding Marriage Word clued.

For Starbucks, the options would be between {Charge, Sub}
For Marriage, the options would be between {Circle, Piano, Wagon}

I think the strongest guess I think we have is {Sub}. Itís in the smaller subset, and I like it more than {Charge}.

After that, I think {Circle, Wagon} are about equal in terms of possibly being correct for Marriage.

I think {Piano} for Marriage, and {Charge} for Starbucks are the weakest of the options.

Although of someone were to like {Charge} more than {Sub} for Starbucks, it has the advantage of being a 50/50 compared to guessing at the last Marriage.

Which ultimately leads me to strongly preferring {Sub} - because if weíre wrong, we know itís {Charge}, and LL only needs to figure out how to reclue the last Marriage word.

If we guess are a Marriage word & are wrong, LL needs to hope we come up correctly on two different remaining 50/50ís, or heíll need to consider how to reclue two different words.

charge could be a clue for marriage as well -- the officiant gives the couple a charge to take care of each other.

idk, I'm good with sub. Let's try it.

I have a slight rule question. Can I give a two-word clue? In the version I played it's one word only, but if it's for example something that is called by two words, like name or a time period or something?

And when in doubt (if it's a legitimate hyphenated or otherwise legal word), you can check the other spymaster.

Yeah, France does also come to mind. But wouldn't the clue then be something like MARSEILLES (which is in the South of France)? or even just GEOGRAPHY?... i.e why specifically LATITUDES, and does the plural matter?

Is there some some with Latitudes in it?

I was thinking France would be cannes or something also yeah. So, maybe not that.

I think WAVE/CIRCLE is the choice we have here unless someone else has another connection they they think of.

another option may be to pass.
We are at 6/8 with 1 out for Latitude.
They are 4/9 with 1 out for Marriage and 1 out for Starbucks. That is 6/9 clued.

They would have to be able to tie together a 3 clue and also get both the others they have outstanding next turn, or leave us with a 2 clue lay up.

Might be good to pass here if we cannot decide. Especially because if we guess a red it becomes significantly easier for their clue giver to give a -1 clue for 4 rather than tie together 5 with a -2 clue.

Peanut (for peanut butter) and Jam seem obvious.

France I think is likely  -- French Dip is a sandwich and people get married in Paris a lot I think?

Maybe #4 is charge? Like you charge for a sandwich?

Peanut & Sandwich for sure.

Iím curious if LL is aware of Infinity guessesÖ that is, Iím worried that there might be 3 Sandwich, but he knew we needed a number of at least 4 to guess at 5.

I dunno.

Since {Sub} was wrong, Iím comfortable enough with {Charge} for the final Starbucks. Could also be a Sandwich clue.

That would put us at 3. I still donít like {France} for Marriage, although it *is* the ďCity of LoveĒ. However - I *do* think itís ok for SandwichÖ

But the problem is that leaves us needing 1 still. So either {Charge} isnít StarbucksÖ (and then what is?), or we consider a final guess for Marriage.

I dunno.

Fair. Was waiting for Jimmmm to come in, but honestly if itís not Peanut -> Jam we probably lose anyway.

Jimmmmm can comment more on future guesses when he gets here.

I think we go Charge next. It's the only option I can see for the remaining Starbucks, and could be the overlap with Sandwich.

Marriage could be any of Driver, Piano, Circle or Wagon. I still like Piano; I guess I'm thinking of on-screen weddings, where it cuts and the piano/organ is what immediately gives away that it's cut to the wedding.

I can't think what the last Sandwich could be. Are French sandwiches a thing?

Hmm, I'm not sure what to make if this clue.

We only have two left and we know one of them fits LATITUDES.

So if this clue is for 2, WCD would've just said Musical: 2. But it were just for the one non Latitudes, we could have had Musical:1.

Which now makes me think that the two remaining words:
a) can't be easily clued together, so only 1 musical
b) but our last word is not ANY of the one we were thinking already for Latitudes

Which would mean we should guess 1 for Musical, and then 🤷‍♂️, maybe something that is Latitudes but not any we had previously suggested. Honestly I don't know.

For Musical, the most obvious seems PIANO, then WHISTLE.
Or if you're thinking Broadway or Disney, there are many others:
France: setting for something like Les Mis or Phantom
Snow: from Frozen
Thief: also Les Mis.
Circle: Lion King (Circle of Life)

My guess, is it's none of those, and most likely Piano. But, like I said if that is BLUE, not sure what to do after that.

Do you either of you see the logic behind the infinity clue? (Sorry WCD if I'm missing something obvious)

It's confusing, but we pretty clearly start with piano I think.

k
1) 100% didds goes 2 if it is a 2-clue. Infinity means musical has a tie into exactly 1 word that has not been clued. The remaining word is Latitudes.
2) Musical is either piano or whistle. Now this could be me getting into my own head, but I wanna say if it was piano we would of got "instrument"... but also if it was whistle... we would of got like "lips" or something. I think Piano is best.
3) Latitudes I think is

The main problem I have is that they have 1 out for Marriage still. And I think that likely has to be 1/2 of Piano and Circle. By that logic we cannot be Piano and Circle... which would be my favorite guess.

I think the play is to go for musical first? It could still be WAVE for latitude.

I am down for whatever though.
It has to be one of piano/whistle and it has to be one of Circle/Wave/France.

maybe circle is best to start. hope for the best and then if we are right we go from there.

But then why not just do:

Musical: 1 (if the 2nd is just our remaining latitudes). Why infinity?

I also agree if the idea was to just just us to piano, then there are better clues for Piano, that would not also make us think Whistle (and vice versa).

So I remain completely confused.

What if she meant Musical:0 and the idea is we should skip all the musical related words!! Aaack!

I think it's super unlikely the clue would be Musical if Piano wasn't one of our words.

Does feel like we are missing a connection somewhere, though.

OK hold on I just ran this and because of the over lap we are kind of win or go home here so I am just gonna put it all on the table and we gotta go from there I think.
Pasta's point about Musical:1 vs Musical: infinite is driving me to this, but it is a very solid point.

No that is stupid actually if we somehow go neutral I do not want those thoughts out.

Let us simplify this. WCD knows Piano is on the board. There is no way we get musical as the hint if piano is not the hint right? I mean just take it at that. We can come up for connections to others, but all of them have better hints. And yes, we could of got a better hint for piano... but how do we get Musical without it being piano?

Open to more thoughts, but at this point, for those reasons... I am fine with someone locking piano and then us iso-ing from there.

OK. I'm still worried, but I'd rather guess piano and be wrong, than not guess it and be right. :)
