Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

i have absolutely no idea

leprechaun is at least a decent motivation for why McCown over others, and is person-shaped when the clue is a person

if your clue is for jet and orange...well, maybe you can't say "blue" because of eye

if it's jet and leprechaun, i guess you could try some airline that operates in dublin if you only want one teammate to get it, or you do this

imo it's leprechaun and string. i'm kinda lost on what else could be a cipher word if it's not string. maybe there's a famous type i'm not recognizing, but at this point i'm still not recognizing it

Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

looks like that's 3/3 for string/leprechaun

and yeah, i'm not aware of the names of any irish airlines. the only other possibility for mccown is orange imo, but it's pretty weak. i can't think of a great jet/orange clue either. he might go "Browns" for the nfl connection, but fan is also there

i see nothing else for cipher, but i'm not an expert there or anything

I deleted the board that EB sent me but his last word was chick

my last three were paste, Beijing, and Diamond...

our only hope was you folks hitting string...

Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

We got really lucky..

First, sorry IBD, Nich and JM3. I made at least two careless errors that resulted in you guys wasting time. My bad..

I donít see a 3 clue for meÖ I wanted to leave fly, air and Beijing until after EBís jet is gone

Bell unlimited for church and sound. Fighter is neutral.. only other I see is horn..

But it seems you like fighter, horn and string. You are also talking air like it is a legit clue for bell but would not even be legal, imo.. But, my bad for not seeing string for bell.

Was hoping to use air later but I need you guys to think air was third bell word and not string. I had planned inflatable unlimited in for bed and air and then when it came my turn I thought why donít I just go with mattress so I switched it to mattress unlimited Ö.and then remembered why mattress was no good.. King ffs, and it is theirs. Sorry again.. I really was not paying attention.

Insect unlimited for fly/tick/air/bed .. fighter is neutral if picked

we got lucky they picked string.. my yolo would have been Imperial for paste (margarine) Beijing, and Diamond... probably 1% chance.

Sorry for being careless team. GG EB and blues. tough ending.

Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

My bad/careless play had nothing to do with the variant, but I still think it is the worst variant...

Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

what's the facepalm emoji

missing one for waist makes a lot of sense, though seems like cipher was an effective 1 after that?

this creates some stupid hard endgames

Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

Waist - Belt and Bow. Chick was an outside possibility, but likely unnecessary as I was planning to go for "Human - unlimited" after red said Fighter, which they seemed like they really wanted to do.

Cipher - Code only. What else could I have said to make you only go with 1 here? We were way ahead at this point and their team was in disarray.

McCown - Jet and Leprechaun. It was our best shot. We were nearly guaranteed the win if you just passed after Jet, but there was no way to stop you from wanting string.

Re: C∞denames (unlimited clues only) game thread

wonder if it's correct to never make up anything and just go max greed on each clue until you get stopped up

that said we could also just let the format die

Kinda leaning this way, tbh.

Of all the variants I've played, this is the least fun imo.

Well then, didn't expect that.

Who came up with this idea for unlimited codenames!?

No shame in having the idea. It's why we try things out.

I'm willing to either take my turn spying, or let the format die as undefeated champions.

Out. No reason to keep playing if no one is enjoying it.
