Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

GG all, sometimes tough to have everyone in synch and our team disagreed on guesses almost every turn

We definitely needed another clue for Buffalo since we thought we were done as nails mentioned - we're certainly going to assume time was part of it if apple was a hit but very tricky scenario - we think we're done and that's hard to recover, I've done the opposite where I've clued for 5 and then the game is spent with guessers going on a goose chase for a stretchy 5th word which is just as bad

On the last turn we're pretty screwed as played, none of us wanted to guess the actual correct words and if we pass after Bond, Blue can just go English - 2 or whatever and clean up their top 2 + Viking/Revolution

Our best chance was the turn before and think we could have spent a little more time trying to sniff it out - seems like ideal scenario would be guessing our 5 and passing with soup/words at the top of our list, though this still leaves us with the tough 3 combo for the last turn. Instead of explosion - 0 I may have tried something like bison - unlimited to run into soup, then finish it out next turn with something like England or Lupin - 2

I enjoy the awkward games a lot as those often have the most maneuvering and deciphering but we didn't get it figured out this time, GG everyone and fun game

This post is odd, team Ervin can be red. Even, we are.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Agent - Jodie Foster plays an FBI agent in Silence of the Lambs
Buffalo - Buffalo Bill was the bad guy in SOTL
Chick - female name
Concert - don't really know a singer named Jodie, but maybe?
Doctor - Hannibal Lecter is a doctor in SOTL
Hollywood - Jodie Foster is an actress
Kid - Jodie Foster was a kid in Bad News Bears
Part - actresses get parts
Scientist - Jodie Foster played a scientist in Contact

So I like (in order):

Agent
Chick
Hollywood
Part
Buffalo
Doctor

Scientist

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Hmm, this could be lots of things. And that's assuming this only relates to Jodie Foster...

A few more aside from the ones already mentioned:

Contract - she would've signed a bunch
Fan - has lots of them
Jack - another name
Press - press tours, interviews, etc

Think I like

Hollywood
Agent
Scientist
Chick

For top 4. Not sure after that.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I like nails commentary and order

Maybe chick below Hollywood is the only suggestion I have. Chick for woman has been hit or miss at times in codenames, and Hollywood seems pretty strong, imo.

Part might even be higher than Chick...not sure

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I think Clarice would've been a better clue for the top 6 in nails' list, since they all relate to one movie.

Also, a character's name hits part better than an actor's name imo.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Hollywood
Agent
Scientist
Chick
Doctor
Fan
Part
Buffalo
Contract
Press

Would be my rough order, though I don't feel that strongly about anything outside the top 4. I think there should be more to it than just SotL stuff, and Contact is probably her 2nd most famous role (or maybe Taxi Driver, but I don't see much up there that fits that).

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I'm fine with D1's top 4, but would like Part to be 5. Don't really have a preference beyond that.

I do think Jack should be on the back-up list.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I just always worry about part because it at least vaguely fits pretty much every clue, so it's kind of hard to avoid. I'm still fine guessing it, but it's the main reason I like it less than you guys.

Also forgot about Jack. Not even sure where I'd rank it. :/

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I worry about scientist being so high. Even though he did not say Clarice (as D1 noted), there are so many SOTL things that fit.

You guys both like these 4

Hollywood
Agent
Scientist
Chick

I am good with going with the majority but scientist would not be in my top 4 and I worry about chick missing as well. I like it less the more I think about it, but am fine if you guys like it there.

So, the top 4 seemed locked in

after that nails wanted part up. I agree. I guess looking at things again the following would be my last 2 and back-ups

5 and 6
Part ( I am with nails on this one)
Buffalo (this just fits too well to leave out imo)

backups..
Fan (she was stalked as well and it was quite newsworthy)
Doctor ( i have this low as it was not her role)
Contract
Jack

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I forgot about the stalker thing...that makes it even stronger imo. Why is buffalo stronger than doctor? I know Buffalo Bill, but that was not her role either, and Dr Lecter is a much bigger character. Plus, scientists are doctors, and I thought she might've played a medical doctor in another movie? I might be making that last bit up tho.

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

I just feel like there should be 2+ words unrelated to SotL, because Jodie muddies the waters too much otherwise with so many more options to choose from.

Yeah, I see your point but imo Buffalo trumps Doctor in the same way that Hannibal would trump Buffalo. Yeah he was a doctor, but Buffalo is a pretty odd name yet here it is, on the list of 50.

if this our 4...

Hollywood
Agent
Scientist
Chick

what are you feeling strong about shaking up here? what up/down?

5 and 6
Part ( I am with nails on this one)
Buffalo (this just fits too well to leave out imo)

backups..
Fan (she was stalked as well and it was quite newsworthy)
Doctor ( i have this low as it was not her role)
Contract

Re: Codenames 4v4 LONG LIST

Eh, I don't feel that strongly about any of the words, so that list seems fine. It's only the first clue and it's not like we're going 6/6 here. Scientist is probably blue anway.
