That part was fun...

I felt IRTM and chillrob were not engaged enough to be hunting wolves as long as we were hitting reds. I mean I know you had a read on me, but you knew you couldn’t do anything about it to convince IRTM and chillrob………..and you knew I knew that… so it was going nowhere..

Also, I think you have to admit the wolf hunt was very oddly timed. (coming off 5 reds!!!). I mean if you want to be the guy screaming “wolf” when we just peeled off a consensus 5, and think you can make a case that you are just a villager with a good read, then you go for it…. People are not going to want to blow up a team on an “arctic asked about witch in his first post” read when we just took a big chunk of words of the board. I mean I am not saying you didn't put shade on me, but I never felt there was traction.

that was my take anyway...

but that banter was fun... and other stuff later on.

GG JM3..

Nothing we could have discussed would have gotten us to Dragon over the other three beings. I still think passing was best, random guess next best, discussing longer just helps the other team eliminate words.

I don't see the advantage of kicking out the mole.

Yeah, Lemon was the reason I didn't do that, but had to go food next turn and pray lol couldn't think of any other clue

I was right in thinking we would get another turn though, hence why I didn't go unlimited

I didn't like my tone in that convo. I had a really rough day with the surgery & kinda took it out on the game. Glad you enjoyed it, though, or I'd have more to apologize for.

I don't think there's ever a bad time to kick out the wolf, though.

GG

Of course it could have. I was deciding between Dragon & Aztec. Giving the other team a chance to win instead of trying to win is just bad strategy & they can gain literally nothing from hearing us talk about our 1 word we have left.

How do you know it was a bad strategy? The wolf instantly jumped on.

Good read and I had no problem with your tone. All is good JM3.

I was giving as good as I got in trying to force you to bold something.

Hope your son is recovering well....

It is hard to provide spymaster suggestions/tips because the difference in difficulty of each board impacts how conservative or aggressive you have to be as spymaster. And the game state can change during a game..

My tip is, when in doubt go ellipsoid 8...

Actually think there should be a purple word in this version. Will probably make everyone more suspicious of everything.

Re: Codenames Werewolf Trial Game 1 - 5V5

I didn’t think of lucky and had nothing better for dragon+well...I figured dragon was the first being you’d think of from the list so had a shot at getting it from that
