You guys should take a blind bonus-guess too. Just for kicks, you know ;D :P

Man we have a long climb here.

So clearly MESS. After that maybe something like cat or cow? Plus our other clues... So back to reindeer, igloo, hide, etc.

I'd start with MESS -> REINDEER

Also, I will be very busy this weekend. I'll try to check in, but mostly just to vote as needed (no room for much more analysis). And if you don't hear from me within some reasonable time, feel free to guess without me.

I also have a busy weekend, but will check in. BEAR scared me off of REINDEER, but we probably should still do it.

Strongest contenders are HIDE, IGLOO. Then we have FORCE with Swowl’s analysis.
CAT, SNAKE, KISS as possibilities. What was the reasoning for ST PATRICK?

There is still some room for analysis- specifically any word that could have been easily combined with WHEELCHAIR under some clue is a candidate. And anything that is opposed to “Cleanup” should be avoided without good reason.
OK I need the updated table to bumped down here to further analyze “Cleanup”

Analysis of words that are likely Non-red based on how easily they could have been grouped with WHEELCHAIR:
* STAFF - like a walking stick / cane
* ROOF - possibly clued with something like “Accident”, but maybe not since that could give MESS
* FORCE - clued with a “Motion” related word
* BABY - clued with “Hospital” (maybe not that exact clue, since it could point to STAFF)
* The three remaining quadrupeds are an interesting case, and I can’t decide it it’s more likely or less likely that Red has any of the animals based on Wheelchair (4 wheels). I’m tempted to prioritize non-animal guesses over any guesses of these words (CAT and REINDEER) in the case it helps Red to snipe the win that much easier.

“Cleanup” is an interesting clue because it signals both “clean” and “messy” (needs a cleanup) themes.

For a similar reason to the above for ROOF, I’m thinking it’s not Blue either. Otherwise “Accident” could signal both MESS and ROOF now that WHEELCHAIR is claimed.

POP, the sugary beverage, needs a cleanup if spilled. (I’m on the “soda” side of the common debate, in case anyone cared.)

BABY for me is the 2nd biggest “Cleanup” word after MESS, bar none.

I have more things to say, but need to get back to work. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to get back to this sooner than later.

If THIEF was also Mounties, then we need two words for Cleanup. Otherwise, just one. We should save any 2nd guess for Cleanup for the end. Choices are BABY and ROOF (even though Accident also gives the MESS-ROOF pair).

I want to like THIEF+HIDE+CAT for Pilfering, but it seems odd to not just clue Burglar.

My suggestion:
MESS >
IGLOO >
FORCE >
{HIDE, CAT, KISS} >
{SNAKE, KISS} >
{REINDEER, STAFF} or {BABY, ROOF} >
? ? ? >
Profit!

Feel free to lock in the first guess or two, unless you find holes in my analysis.

Is it just me and Eevee at this point? That’s fine, if so.

Mess
Igloo
Reindeer
----GAP----
Force
---GAP---
Snake, Kiss

Then I need to think more. I think that matches most of our shit though.
We agree on a lot of the up tops and I think mess is universal so

Guys, I’m off REINDEER at this point. My theory is that Mounties was to clue a police force specific to a location, and also I don’t think Reindeer have much to do with Canada. I could see myself using Rangers to clue Texas/Cowboy/Force but not Rattlesnake/Cactus. In other words my gut is saying Eevee could be going for things symbolic of the region and not necessarily random things that live there. My 4 or MAPLE, FORCE, STAFF, IGLOO. If I can’t sway anyone, I still ask we save REINDEER for last for other reasons previously stated.

SNAKE > KISS is also what I’ve been leaning toward, @Swowl, but then I was thinking “why not Stealing as the clue”. I have to take KISS off of the table, since the deliberate synonym signals to avoid it, in my mind. (“Stealing a kiss” is the signature expression.)

Welcome back!

I accidentally hit Post instead of Preview; I gots more to say.
I was avoiding HIDE for as long as I could, as an experiment. Pilfering is my weakest analysis, but I’ve settled back on HIDE and SNAKE (with THIEF).
Side musing: Scum 3 could have been a fun clue for THIEF/MESS/SNAKE, using different meanings of the word.

IGLOO
FORCE
HIDE
SNAKE
STAFF (REINDEER)

That’s our winning list. Feel free to rearrange and/or lock-in as many as you feel comfortable with.

This match is hilariously reminding me of Red vs Blue (of which the middle quote in my sig is from). In the show, the majority of the drama and story is centered around the blues, while the reds are usually just trying to do their own thing (often a hare-brained anti-blue plot of some kind) up until they inevitably get dragged along on the blue’s adventures.

Well, one partner has lurked a couple times since he last posted, and the other has been pretty busy since his recent appearance. I hope they don’t have any objections if I continue on soon. And with no further input I’ll be tempted to just rip off the bandage, if you get my meaning.

well definitely CAT.

Do reindeers have paws? There has to be a reason why it's pawing rather than just "paw" though.

Not your fault, man! I started alpha-gaming this round (might as well, if the team is AWOL ;D) and am reaping what I’ve sowed :D :D I suggested Igloo from the beginning, and even then it wasn’t sitting right and I had to think it over a lot.
I’m sure Eevee had IGLOO, being a bystander, as a calculated risk. It happens. It will be fun to know what’s been going through their head during all our bumbling.
