Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

Is this right?

fly -6 (bat, parachute, robin, spider, maybe moon?) +1 at least
crust - 3 (ice, moon, pie) +0 imo
tongs - 3 (lab) + 2
classics - 3 ( olympus, Shakespeare) +1

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

Could horseshoe be a fly/mountie overlap? Like horsefly?

In theory we have been clued for all words and could finish this round.

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

Yes. I think they are locks

I am not sure if this is right, but I think we need

one fly word (if moon was for fly and crust), if not we need 2
two tongs words
one classics word

Canada and Horsehoe should be locks, and horseshoe might be for tongs

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

arm could be one of the tongs words

pistol fits mountie.

The rest depend on whether he meant mountie alone or mountie as in think mountie plus Canada...

If it is the latter, oil and water are in play, but don't seem to fit previous clues

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

spurs went unlimited and knows that model was next in line for classics and that ninja was picked for us for tongs, but we had a miss before it could be ruled on..

EDIT. If canada and horseshoe are correct, we have 13 of 16 words.

if model next for classics, and ninja left for tongs..

we would have to assume that horseshoe was for fly (as Carl said) and not for tongs, and then arm might be the third tong word??

Maybe horseshoe is fly for horsefly / tossing horseshoes, and we're done with that.

maybe pistol is both tong (for gangs) and mountie, and we need one more

Canada is the new mountie word

horseshoe, pistol, Canada, +1 tong, +1 classic

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

So

Fly 6
bat
parachute
robin
spider
moon (also for crust)
horseshoe

Crust 3
pie
moon (also for fly)
ice

Tongs 3
lab
Ninja (next in line.. not yet picked)
arm (possible, not yet picked)

Classics 3
Olympus
Skakespeare
Model (next in line, not yet picked)

Court was our word (picked by them)

So, pistol could be the last word.

If so, we are looking at Ninja, Model, arm and pistol..

Not saying we should pick those...just laying out a way for us to decide what is missing.

If we just assume that Canada and Horseshoe are good, then I like your three but think we should give some more thought to arm

it is 3 of pistol, model, ninja and arm, imo

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

Actually, there should not be three mountie words, because then spurs could have just said mountie 3 and we could have guessed 5 due to the +2 rule.

This should be a point in favor of arm. Unless spurs forgot about +2, which I did until just now

Wings are kind of like arms. It's a weak connection, but better than horseshoe/arm imo.

I don't really like model for classics a great deal, but he didn't steer us away from it. So maybe go with that next?

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

I think we first need to plug the missing words to a point where we are comfortable..

Canada (mountie only)
Horseshoe (mountie plus fly?) if so fly 6 is done

we need a classic word for sure..

we need two tong words for sure..

anyone disagree???

Its either arm is both fly and tongs, or horseshoe is both fly and mountie I think.

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

Due to the +2 thing I mentioned earlier, I think we have to say arm over pistol.

Mounties do carry guns, right?

No. But I like saying it for one of them. Don't know which one though.

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

In that case, I like arm as tongs/fly over horseshoe for fly/mountie by a significant margin.

Re: Codenames Long-List best 3 of 5: Team Echo vs Foxtrot

I don't see arm for fly, but I like it for tongs. I still like model for classics. Pistol could have fly value (bullets flying). It doesn't seem like tongs has an asian gang association here.
