Wow, a fiver!

Mine, Settle and Flag seem likely.
Geographical locations can be claimed, such as the South and Antarctica. I guess you could claim a spot on the Grass or in the Snow, but that seems like a bit more of a stretch.
Churches probably make claims, or you can claim something from a Roof (top).
I guess you can also claim your Mail, or claim a Dollar prize.

My initial take says

Flag > Mine > Settle > Roof

Also kind of like South and Antarctica

I just don't have the time right now. And we saw how much people weren't happy with my limited availability last game. I expect to being able to opt in on games again, sometime in July.

I like Flag, and I like Settle. I also really like Dollar in the top 3.

After those, Mine, Mail, Pupil are all good options.

And beyond those there are a lot of other decent choices. Antarctica, Ivory, South, Pizza, Roof, etc

Flag -> Settle seems unanimous.

In case it's not obvious, I'm thinking of Mine as in "It's mine!" rather than claiming a mine.

The thing with Roof is that I also consider it a symbol of ownership. I wasn't thinking of claiming something on a roof.

Iím good with ĎMineí next instead of Dollar - I think theyíre both probably Red.

Roof is the only one I donít really see the strong connection to - but would be fine guessing - Iím not crazy attached to any other options.

Both Red.

Red

Spymasters, have a PM about whatís happening here.

What do you mean?

I *think* the concern is to keep responses uniform if possible - so as to eliminate any possible telegraphing - ie. "Both Red" could be construed to mean "they're both red and words I intended in my clue", whereas "Red" could be construed to mean "this is also a red word, but wasn't one of the ones I meant to clue".

I certainly don't think there was anything intentional behind your response - but I would hazard to guess that is vidicate's concern.

Or it could genuinely just be concern over no possible confusion! That the first was clearly stating that the words were red, whereas the second response could indicate red, but could also indicate neutral - so it might not be clear!

Ok, convince me on dollar -- I'm not really seeing it.

Generally speaking, I feel like "To Claim a Dollar" or "To claim a buck" is a saying. Moreover though, I feel like a Dollar is something you would WANT to claim. And then I feel like it something someone WOULD claim "Hey, that's my dollar!".

I dunno - on a clue of 5, Dollar just jumped out to me more than most other words, and definitely fell into my top 3.

All of the above. Thanks, Galzria! Iím also of the opinion that spymasters should refrain from any discussions in the game thread mid-game, in general. Spymasters consulting one another is ďbest practiceĒ instead. Thatís just the kind of stickler I am :)
