Whitish 5
Ivory
Snow
Antarctica
Church
????

Celebration 3
Parade
Church
????
I think it's likely church was an overlap, meaning we have 1 word left for each. I'm ok with guessing pizza, it could be either (both) of the missing clues. Same goes for rose though, could go for whitish and celebration. Whale, plastic and dice only fit whitish.

Darn, the smiley was meant to be ? ? ?  indicating a missing word.

you have to write ??<b></b>? ( except with [] brackets) to make ???. AT least that's how I do it.

Good work, team! We should definitely guess something. So many choices, and not much consensus. I like only the previous 5 words I listed, but only 2 (maybe 3) spots to guess. I’m feeling slightly better about guessing a Whitish word over a Celebration word. Mostly because I’m anxious deciding between Pizza and Rose. So my guess is either Plastic, or Pizza (I’m starting to think it’s the obvious “safe” celebration choice over Rose).

inb4 it turns out Dice was the last word the whole time

Yeah, I still like Pizza. has links to both and I can't see any reason it wouldn't at worst be neutral.

Ok, so I'd say snake has to be the clue for Jazz. Since this was the lead we didn't try, joth ought to be more desparate if it is false.

Are there any other jazz references in this stupid show?

Then, well, anything that connects to slither is not it. So not roof and probably not uh robot?

Unless slither is meant to apply to snakes, but snakes don't slither, they crawl, right? Or is it a thing to refer to that as slithering? If so all of the above doesn't apply, and we're meant to find the real thing for jazz.

My instinct is that he’s saying DON’T pick Snake. That there’s NO connection there.

I think “Jazz Grass” is another name for marijuana. So we could go Grass.

Other than that, I’m inclined to lean “South” (Music known in Southern US) and… I don’t know. So South & Grass?

….. But then what?

Uh, why? If snake was wrong, wouldn't you try another clue? Like, a 0 clue means don't use slither, hence the previous clues have to be sufficient.

So we're the starter team, which means we have 9 clues.

Claim has 5
Jazz has 2
Mail has 1 or 0 (depending on whether it's part of Claim)
Slither has 0

Joth knows that 0 means "no clues here" and that you can also clue infinity, right? If so, this means that even if we get this right, blue gets another turn.

0 and infinite both give no limit on number of guesses.

Zero and Unlimited both give no limit on number of guesses.
Changed to use the terminology from the rules. You still must make at least one guess.

Yeah, I know. But it's generally harder to guess things with a 0-clue, so I meant "does joth know we can also get unlimited guesses with a positive clue". Like I don't expect that we are supposed to find the ninth only in terms of what doesn't fit with slither.

Unless maybe the idea is not only "doesn't fit" but "as opposed to slither as possible?"

OK, I got you.

Anyway, I have a board/clue analysis, including what to possibly do with Slither: 0 at this stage, but then I run the risk of “alpha gamering” this shit, and ruining any victory for anyone. I’m rooting for you though. It would be pretty cool to see you guys pull it off.

I'm pretty lost with this.

I'm pretty sure Slither means don't pick Snake - I think rules-wise it has to mean that there are no red words connected to Slither.

ok, so you're saying slither is related to snake. In that case, let's see if we can eliminate everything with even a passing resemblance to slither.

ROSE
ROOF (you can slither off roofs)
SNAKE (s. above)
DRAGON
CURRY
SNAP
WHALE (very slippery animals)
GRASS (you can slip/slither on wet grass)
DICE   
PLASTIC   
ROBOT (could slither depending on how it's built)
SOUTH
WIND

That leaves

SOUTH
WIND
DRAGON
CURRY
SNAP
ROSE
DICE   
PLASTIC   

Optimistically, we could say wind for Jazz and South for Claim, which would leave

DRAGON
CURRY
SNAP
ROSE
DICE
PLASTIC

Still not enough though.

If I just had to pick the two words that seem to have the absolute weakest possible connection to slither, I'd say Curry and Rose.

One of you have an idea for Jazz, even far-fetched? I think at this point we have to pick WIND no matter what.
