We traded Nich back to your team for a 1st round pick in 2023 and future considerations.

He is free to help you guys this turn.

Not limb but limbs so they are limbs or have limbs most likely

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

sherwood/thumb/monkey prob best

really don't know if he's going for something like shoe or trying to avoid it. there are a few articles of clothing up there

there is no way to differentiate between all the humans. plus horse. and rabbit. and alien. mayyyybe soldier is best of all of those because they often lose their limbs

...so that could be a point in shoe's favor, but i don't feel too great guessing it

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Think I like

monkey
sherwood
thumb
soldier
horse

and as backup some other humans.

Train is another good one after field and dash.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

field and dash were the next two on our list. should throw those in for this turn

i guess i'm fine with soldier and horse for limbs, i really have no clue after the top three, but i don't really see him expecting us to ~blindly guess all the humans on the list and hope we hit. that just seems like a pretty terrible strategy

really hate train, but if you both like it, idc. honestly seems like anytime we use the definition you're going for, the hit rate is like 20% (and ncaa doesn't even fit that definition that well imo)

nich, rice is also a university. and yeah, water polo is a college sport. idk about regular polo... it might exist in the ivy league or something

oh, and it's unlikely both army and soldier are ours imo. not grouped together and two stretchy connections seems not realistic

think i covered everything


sherwood
thumb
monkey
field
dash
soldier
horse?
pass

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

ok, not much time left


sherwood
thumb
monkey
field
dash
soldier
horse
pass



polo
rice
army

as ncaa backups... but army is unlikely if soldier is correct

no clue how to order limbs backups if we'd go for things with limbs since there are like 6-7 options

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Unless I missed something it looks like

paper
contract
ink

a contract really is not an invoice, but it is a record of a transaction and a billing statement and implies a contract of sorts.

Seems like a good clue for those three.

But, dentist fits too though...??

maybe it is paper/ink/Dentist....??

EDIT

Paper/Ink/Contract or

Paper/Ink/Dentist

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Contract/Dentist/Paper were the first three I saw. I suppose Ink is also in the mix, but would prefer that as a backup.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Definitely contract and paper, I kinda like dentist 3rd. It's similar to army but a lot stronger - ink just doesn't seem to twang as well since it's not electronic but cool with it as first backup

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Ok, I'll go with you guys.. Kind of thinking ink is good though.

Let's go paper first, as an invoice is pretty much always on paper.

Paper
Contract
Dentist
pass


ink
