Jail & Dollar seem great fits.

Not sure about #3. Roof? St.patrick? Post?

Ha, I moved to Ireland last week, fun coincidence to have St Patrick on the board. I haven’t checked which words are red and blue yet, this is not a clue of any kind.

Maybe London? Aren't the properties in Monopoly in the UK in London?

I don't know, but if they are, that's a pretty clear case, I'd say. None of the alternatives are good.

ok then I'd say fang can be spymaster in the next round?
Eevee for blue, me for red, and my team is silverspawn jotheonah Jimmmmm?
I'll prepare a grid and send to Eevee.

Welcome, fang! Good to have you. Codenames works wonderfully as a forum game—in some ways better than IRL. I see you already messed up; Red went first in the previous round. :P ;)

I hope Galzria is okay. This is the only thread he’s participated in since March, so he’s probably just busy.

I feel like I recently watched a YouTube video about Monopoly and they made a point of giving two names every time they mentioned a property. One was the names I'm used to, which I think are NYC-based, and the other sounded very British. And I know they have Cluedo instead of Clue so regionalization of classic board games is a thing. Does anyone know fang's nationality? I can't remember.

Anyway if everyone on the team approves I would be fine with Jail - Dollar

Thanks. But I think the randomiser randomises which team goes first.
Or have you guys been re-randomising until you get the other team going first?

I would go (and gave gone) with whatever the randomizer blurts out the first time.

That was my understanding. But it’s all good.

It says UK in his profile.

Dollar -> Jail seem obvious.

London seems a reasonable third. Thief could also be seen as related to the theme.

I think there's no way to take something over London if that's where the places are from.

MAPLE, REINDEER, BEAR, SMUGGLER, IGLOO

Also POST, STAFF, THIEF, FORCE

And a couple more, but more distant

Agree with the top list.

clearly can't be: MAPLE, REINDEER, BEAR, IGLOO, because then clue could just be Canada

So I like MAPLE FIRST, then SMUGGLER... then not sure which two i the other three. I might even put FORCE up a little higer, as in "Police Force".

Ok.
So Canada vs Mounties concept.
It has to have something that makes it like police-forcey like pasta said.
Now that could be one thing, or multiple things, but like you said... Cant be exactly the 4 Canada words.

So as much as I agree with Smuggler... it could also be Force. But I like Smuggler better.

I think we go Smuggler -> Bear. (I have relatives in Canada, bear hunting is like... a huge gross thing up there)

last word I could go a lot of ways on. But probs a flip between reindeer and igloo.

I'm happy with SMUGGLER -> BEAR next, if vidicate agrees, they can lock it in.
