Nice!

Well, that puts us at 4 of 5 with some choices to make.

Relooking, I definitely like ‘Mail’ as the 5th (“Go claim your Mail”).
Silver likes ‘Roof’ as the fifth.
Jimmmmm, do you have a preference?

We could Pass. It’s always a free guess later and we can wait for some more of the board to clear. At this point we have a solid open, and we definitely DON’T want to hit one of their words.

Other reasonable options I see:

Antarctica - As a place, could be claimed.
Pizza - “That slice is mine!”, a reasonable item to claim.
Ivory - A valuable to be claimed.
Pupil - A student could be “claimed”
Rose - If there weren’t a bunch of other better options, I could see this (it’s given in things like ‘The Bachelorette’ I think? To make selections…).

I think I also like passing. A guess should be better than random, but the goal isn't to get as many words as possible, it's to maximize P(win), and with our current position, being risk-averse makes sense.

Gonna Pass. If Jimmmm feels strongly we can get his guess in on next turn.

Oooh, 5 vs 5!

So, the two most obvious to me are:
IVORY and SNOW

Then things that could be white or whitish (in no particular order, so not saying these are good guesses yet):
• there is a version of PIZZA considered white pizza
• a band called white SNAKE ("Here I go again on my own...")
• MAIL is often in white envelopes
• ROSE is a color and is light
• ANTARCTICA is ice and snow and always white looking
• Moby Dick: the while WHALE
• DICE are often WHITE
• white DRAGONs are a thing in fantasy
• eyes are white, so a connection to PUPIL (though the Pupil is not the white part)


Feel free to lock in the first two, if y'all agree. I think if the rest, I like MAIL for third. Let me know if I missed any other connections.

Good summary, scola. And a lovely clue from Swowl!

My tiers:
Ivory, snow
Antarctica, mail
Whale, dice, pizza, snake


Is there some significance to clue being whitish, not white? Like, maybe the band Whitesnake is less likely because it's not really whitish in any way? Also pizza isn't really whitish, that's just white pizza. Moby Dick is the "white whale", though perhaps also whitish in color (same for the terrible tasting type pizza though, hmm).

I would go ivory -> snow -> antarctica -> mail -> dice. But it's very close after the first four. This is such a great clue, should give us a lot of information in the later rounds even if we don't get them all at once here. A problem with dice is that if you don't think about it, you might not make the connection to them usually being white. Same goes for pizza. I feel pretty good about the first four (ivory snow antarctica mail).

I think technically Ivory is whitish and not white. Though I think we'd still guess it if the clue had been white. So not sure there. That's part of why I think Rose might have a shot.

I do like Mail and Antarctica for 3 and 4, mabe, but those also fit claim so we may want to be careful.

(and pizza and snake are in my lowest tier as well). I do kind of like whale a little more though.

I’ve landed on the same 5 words as Eevee. I’m also adding Church as the buildings are often whitish. And Plastic, specifically the preponderance of it that I put in my recycle bin, is white/whitish. Other than these 7, I’m not feeling it for the rest, except maaaaybe Pupil (with the eyes, since it’s not the white part, therefore White-ish).

Ivory
Snow

(Does Curry come in a white variety? Dead Grass is very pale.)

hmm, i definitely thought antarctica was most likely fifth for claim
before our clue, which gives me pause.

church is a pretty good idea too, this is tough. anyone feel strongly about the best guess for next?

Agreed that Antarctica I was thinking Claim for reasons I don’t want to publicly disclose. But it’s very Whitish also! Argh lol

For now, I’m fine with Mail, Plastic, or Antarctica for next. Even Dice. Whatever y’all want to pull the trigger on. I’m worried that a random “obvious” one like Mail will end up being a dud lol. Fingers crossed

Hmm - I have my initial thoughts, but don’t love anything here.

Silver, Jimmm, do any answers jump out to you?

I could see Pupil (student, in general, though not particular to ‘Jazz’), South (associated with New Orleans, Southern US), Snap (I picture snapping silhouettes and people playing sax in my head), Wind (not a wind instrument, but you blow into a Sax)…

But for almost all of those, why Jazz over Saxophone? I don’t know. Don’t love any of the things coming to mind for me here.

OH!

Ok, it would be wild… but it would be a connection Joth would make (I think):
