Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I know you two don't like it, but absent any other connections, I am willing to accept bond as being a bubble word. There are stock bubbles, so why not bond bubbles. The principles of a bubble would be the same in both.

So, two more London words

Battery
Blind
Boom - never
Brother -
Buffalo - if Buffalo was ours why not an NY 4 clue instead of Manhattan clue for skyscraper/time/buffalo/apple
Drill - Buckingham Palace Changing of the guard
Dust
Ear
France - no (imo)
Hole
Nut
Pants - I originally suggested bubble pants but I think they are called parachute pants, as one of you pointed out.
Revolution - Yes.. Industrial Revolution
Scarecrow
Sugar
Viking - invaded England and I assume that included London. Plus Viking river Cruises.

So far I like, in order

Revolution
Viking

Drill
Pants

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

It looks like we need to do something by 3:26 server time Sunday...

It seems we are committed to going for the win..

I am not sure what more discussion will help, but I am in for whatever the majority is for picks.

Right now my vote would be revolution/vikings/drill/pants

what say each of you two in case we have to pick when we are not all here..??

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I want to at least swap viking and revolution around because of how much blue equity it has, but I think I'm pretty on board with that since I just don't like anything else at all. I might put buffalo before drill, and definitely before pants, but meh.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

There is a chance he only gave us a 3 clue for Manhattan because theatre was blue and he didn't wanna push it. Still not really liking it that much.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

good friend had a birthday and had a reunion type thing so just getting back finally

I think I like blind - it works for bubble(poker sense) and London fog

I'm just looking for a reason for this to be London

English would hit Bond/Revolution/Viking just as well, England would probably hit France with it but I'm thinking nails had 3 tough ones to link and is giving us some chance

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I could see something like revolution + pants(London shops, perhaps bubble from before), drill is a possibility too but I think a tad bit too far off

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Battery - no clearly
Blind - could be and not blue's, fog blinds you right?
Boom - obv not lol
Brother - Big Ben, Big Brother? London Brother? don't really think so
Buffalo - no with context, would have to be a lot of spursing from everyone for this to be ours
Drill - eh, Buckingham thing is a stretch, not really connecting this one
Dust - nah unless some Mary Poppins nanny type thing but nah
Ear - don't see anything
France - nope
Hole - is there a famous well or anything? could be something but I don't see it
Nut - absolutely not
Pants - possible with shops and stuff
Revolution - does hit hardest. has other stuff going strongly against it. tough.
Scarecrow - see nothing
Sugar - maybe some kinda trade route? possible
Viking - what are the river cruises? I'm not familiar

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I gotta step out for a little bit

Blue - if you don't mind can we have a small extension to properly finish this high-quality game? we'll surely guess today but would be nice to have whole team around and I had a busy weekend myself

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

thanks, not trying to make it a regular thing but sometimes everyone's availability doesn't line up well

more important to me to have good fun games with great thinkers here, think this game has had a nice pace in general though(going for year 2 as well)

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

The Viking connection is that the Vikings invaded England but you knew that. Viking cruises are just something that might make Viking a bit stronger. They are river cruises, mostly in small vessels in Europe on interesting river routes. Not sure if they are on the Thames, but could be.

i have been looking at various things but my order has not changed. Revolution and Viking are my first two picks. I am fine if you two vote otherwise, but the last time D1 posted those were his as well.

So, I think you are going to have to move one of us off one of those words..

Someone saying they know for sure that bubble pants exist might work for me, but I think the ones with all that extra material around the thighs are parachute pants. Unless there are another type of pants for bubble-butt asses...lol

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

haha yea bubblebutt is definitely a thing and maybe could work for pants

I'm not familiar with the Viking cruises so didn't know if it was like an England-only thing(which would make it super hard hitting) or all of Europe(which is weaker) or elsewhere - rivers though I'd imagine England has less tho maybe you'd take one of these puppies on the English channel?

Again this not being either England or English really makes me think that the viking + revolution combo is wrong and either 0 or 1 of them is correct. I don't have an immediate favorite word(probably blind right now but could be talked into pants or something) that I'm ready to try to move people onto - but I do feel strongly about that combo being wrong so may as well start there

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

imo England would have got France...London gets bond (James Bond) as well as England.

Also, I am not confident about viking or revolution, but % wise in my head they have the highest change of being correct.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

it could have - but English would have given us a better idea of English Channel so I'm starting to get off viking. And I'm pretty much fully off revolution - I mean we got explosion for 0, would you really throw that curveball in there if you're planning to clue your team for your word revolution next turn? AND Musk is their clue...so yea

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

So, do what we did. List 4 words in order.

There is good reason to have problems with all the words we are considering. I think we all know that. All three of us are having the same struggle.

It would be easier to look at your suggestions options if we knew where you were (personally) on what you would pick if pressed to so, from 1 to 4.

Personally, if I don't make and order, I go in circles of not liking anything. Full well knowing that some words are better than others, and whatever I pick I will have doubts about.

Where do you sit right now, 1 to 4.

D1 can decide our picks I guess, as you and I have no common 1 or 2 (or 3).

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

The problem I'm having is that revolution is the strongest connection BY FAR, and there are just no other real connections unless you start stretching super hard.

I don't wanna say it, but what choice do we have?
