Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Viking may not be bad.. . Plus there are Viking cruises too..

we could do

scroll
apple
bond

Revolution
Viking

but only bold the first three for now. We are always guessing those 3.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I'm fine bolding top 2 of list before discussing further since I'd always be guessing those

Bond seems strong, I don't think I'm getting off revolution

3rd word should have bubble + London equity IMO which it could be bond but eh

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

what's London famous for? cause this could have just as easily been England which is a reason I don't want to guess France

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I really don't like revolution for the reasons I already mentioned, but looks like I'm alone there.

I'm fine with starting with the top 3 and then discussing some more. No clue what's going on with bubble, but sorta think we should just disregard it at this point.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Passing is also an option if we're not really feeling it. If blues list is not great, they might have a tough time finishing it off next turn.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

why is revolution before bond when we all like bond and only two of us like revolution?

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I am absolutely against passing and want to go for it - blue has a very realistic chance of ending and no reason to think we can't either first

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

If two of you don't like revolution, and AE never wants to pass here, then we have bond and need two words better than revolution.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Just trying to think of why he used London specifically, because I think England/English would hit all the words we're considering much harder.

I'm not totally against guessing revolution btw, but if that word was on our list at the time we got the explosion clue, would you think that eliminated revolution or no?

yes, but mostly because we thought there needed to be two words.

A related question is whether explosion 0 was just for that long list, or more specifically, just for boom.

I am not really sure what to do here , or how we interpret all this.

If it was just for boom, then it doesn't make much sense imo. He could have clued bubble 0 to get rid of soup and boom if his plan was not to involve extra words on the board.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I'll just say straight up since I believe we need to win this turn revolution hits for Musk IMO too - explosion could hit it and if diab is off I'm actually off this too, England or w/e could hit this just as well if nails really wanted it. Thinking no and France obviously not ours now either

I do feel extremely strong about guessing - would never pass back in this spot

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Yeah, the blue equity was one of the reasons I didn't like it.

I'm all for going for the win here...just not really liking our options, and hitting a blue/assassin is game over. I think we're always guessing bond in our top 3 tho, so we can probably bold that soon (with a backup list).

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

fine bolding Bond...we're gonna have to pick some stuff and that's probably one so bold away - don't care about list too much since it has to be right anyway and we need to snipe out the last 2 words

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Still would like at least least one backup since blues are not guranteed to close it out next turn. Maybe viking?

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Not saying we guess it necessarily, just saying it's good to have a word as backup so he doesn't have to clue for it again if it makes it back to us.
