Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Yeah agree.

lemonade
shoe


Rice and sled should be good as you say.

I think scottish was either field again, or ranch or maybe horse? Is a full blood scottish horse a thing? We're probably guessing ranch and horse anyway.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

probably always guessing these?


horse
sled
rice
army

and then one of ranch or taste with the other one being blue

if we go 5/5, we'd need 2 more

mush might be pointing away from polo

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

My brain is mush. I'm good with guessing those 4 if Nich likes it as well.

Idk if we can read into not getting an unlimited here under these circumstances, but taste being next, with horse and maybe army ours, it might be a point in favor of ranch over taste

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I was thinking that as well, but there would still be 4 to guess if taste was ours and ranch wasn't. I still like taste more than ranch for watery and real but after this clue it can really go both ways. (Maybe mush points more to texture thus away from taste as well? )

Are American biscuits mushy sometimes?

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I wouldn't describe them as mushy really, but I guess it's possible

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Cliffs:

4 remaining. Soldier is not ours

Almost certainly just 1 ncaa and rice and army are a decent combo there, better than polo imo. Mush also fits army in multiple ways. They eat mush, they walk thru mush, etc

Hopefully that's one word down. For #2...

Pie and whip are theirs, as is one of taste or ranch. The other of taste and ranch is most likely ours we think. There are pros and cons for both, but I think ranch is better since it also fits Scottish. But none of us know what the Scottish word could even be, or maybe we already guessed it


Then we can try and go for the last 2 after that imo

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Actually there aren't many pros for taste

Ranch fits Scottish. Maybe

Taste is still kinda awkward for watery unless we're not using the main definition. Guessing actual watery things is better imo

Taste fits cream slightly more too

Plus the small possibility of getting an unlimited clue is a point against taste

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

taste has always been my #1 reason he'd use the word watery instead of liquid or other similar words

you only use watery to say something has a watery taste

In a vacuum, sure

But you gotta look at the rest of the board with ketchup bbq and ranch up there

Really wish we had a number for that clue

I'm still fine with guessing taste if we can come up with something good for Scottish

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

A point against ranch is not getting some type of farming related clue I guess

Field and horse and even rice

Might be blockers tho since this list was pretty crazy

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

ugh work keeps pinging me

taste/army are my top 2 tho

mush 100% hits taste and taste is why watery not liquid or other words


Army finishes off NCAA
army is another limb word (one branch of military, etc)
Army may be Scottish like in Braveheart
army is on the unlimited list
they are real

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

coffee/lemonade are ours, if ketchup/ranch both ours also then we get edible

so one of ketchup/ranch is incorrect imo

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

NCAA - 5:
america
bowl
field
rice
army


limbs - 5:
thumb
monkey
horse
shoe
army

scottish - 2:
kilt
? army like in Braveheart?

I think scottish was to get us off of yard/england by not going Scotland, but we failed at that

kilt+shoe woulda been clothes if he just wanted to get those...if belt was ours more likely we get clothes - 3 so belt lower odds


watery:
after 3 of ours, the next 2 words weren't ours, so unlimited is a weird way to clue there...maybe just most of our list was right (which it was other than dash/soldier/maybe one more) and watery

due to coffee/lemonade being ours and him not just going drink i'm thinking ketchup or ranch is ours, but not both or woulda gotten edible or similar...even watery hits drink so must have ketchup or ranch as one of ours

they got cream not creamy so ranch isn't theirs and could be ours


Real- 11:
genius
lemonade
coffee
shoe
horse
sled
rice
army
taste
?
?

not soldier

ranch is more real than ketchup but either works


Mush - 7:

oatmeally type food or something you say to dogs to get them moving when riding a sled (and similar for horses)

rice - food
horse - command
sled - command
army - command
taste - food
ketchup or ranch - food
??? last word I'm not sure

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Alien - probably not
Army - probably ours
Barbecue - weakish
Belt - probably not
Biscuit - maybe biscuit with mush? weakish
Bride - Real and has limbs, but meh
Ketchup - maybe this or ranch is mush
Pie - not ours due to cream
Polo - could be ours?
Rail - not seeing connection to our words
Ranch - maybe this or ketchup
Skyscraper - real but nothing else fits, nah
Smell - not seeing any connections
Soldier - not ours due to n rule
Staff - probably not, but maybe limb and maybe NCAA and real and mush
Taste - could be watery and definitely mush; I like it more than y'all
Torch - not seeing it
Train - you train the dogs to mush; NCAA athletes train; train attach kinda like limbs; they are real; not a bad option
Whip - no, cream


probably ours:
army
taste

some other options:
ranch or ketchup
polo
train
staff
bride

very unlikely:
bride
barbecue

not ours:
the rest

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

what are ya'lls thoughts on the options?

train overlooked by us this whole time? or are there reasons to believe it's not ours?

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

yeah i guess army could be scottish. i don't really think of scotland as having an army, but maybe soldier is the assassin (so he can't clue braveheart) and he was trying to get us off of it since we had it before army in our earlier list


so i'm fine going army and taste

ranch is never ours if taste is (because of the cream clue) unless you see another possible 3rd answer for that


i was trying to get these two (last ncaa plus the reason for watery) out of the way before even attempting to figure out the final two....


but ketchup seems possible

kinda sorta watery, real tomatoes? can fit mush

train does make a little sense, but i don't think he was going for it for ncaa if army is ours

i'm fine eliminating:

Alien
Belt
Pie
Rail
Ranch - if guessing taste
Skyscraper
Smell
Soldier
Torch
Whip
