24 hour time limit to guess the number once clue is given
16 hour time limit to guess higher/lower once number is guessed (don't wait for "not x" response)

You can use up to NINE words in your clue OR post an image with no words. No numbers (or number stand-ins) can be used in the clue.

Clue Giver can research; guessers on both sides cannot

Standard alternating turns, going down the lists above of teammates, starting with Nich then Gad then JMurder then FMK, etc


15 spectrums for us to choose from (only 12 will be taken):

Re: Wavelength 6, Round 1: Math & Mayhem vs Half Bastards

We did not get a qualifier (a cheetah’s purr is louder than a cat’s purr). If this were higher than a 6, we would have gotten a “cheeta’s purr” imo.

I have two cats. One of them is a loud purrer, the other is quieter. But if you enter a large room and they are in the opposite corner, you can still hear them purr. I think this is ia 5 or a 6. My gut reaction is 5.

Also, I think a whisper is lower than a purr. Whispering people typically try to be quiet.

Re: Wavelength 6, Round 1: Math & Mayhem vs Half Bastards

4 or 5 is fine. My last cat I got when it was 2 days old & it purred so loudly I named it Rumble, buuuuuuut in the general scheme of things it ain't that loud.

We played the good name for a dog - bad name for a dog category in my Wavelength game last Saturday and it was pretty wonderful

Nich, I'm guessing these spectrums don't include any of our custom ones?

Looks like we're at 5 pending AE.

These are the advanced ones from the game

Once we go through these we will have to go to our custom ones

Re: Wavelength 6, Round 1: Math & Mayhem vs Half Bastards

Sorry for the delay, was busy with some mayhem

Purr definitely louder than a whisper I'd say...initial thought was around 5...my favorite guess is probably 6 since you could have some loud purrs(not that it's a giant part of my strategy since I'm mostly on the mission of trying to get points for us but it does make it harder on the other team as well - would be cool to incentivize winning individual games a little more)

Re: Wavelength 6, Round 1: Math & Mayhem vs Half Bastards

Think Nich would've done all caps 'PURR' as a clue if it was for a loud purr?

Got to assume he means just your average normal purr, so 5 seems fine

Re: Wavelength 6, Round 1: Math & Mayhem vs Half Bastards

Game theory wise 5 seems best, could see this being 4 or 6, sometimes 7, but probably 5 60% (I know 4/5 and 5/6 are close but yeah pretty confident 5 could be right and smartest play)
