I feel like words like "soft" and "light" in that context shouldn't be allowed as parts of clues

drizzle in grass conveys it just fine, since a drizzle is light by definition

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

Yeah

4 for right on
3 for 1 off either direction
2 for 2 off either direction
0 for 3+ off

And they get 1 for correct higher/lower

We just need 3 every time to win, plus get the higher/lowers correct more often than not, so we are are on target but hopefully get some 4s for buffer this game

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

20-21.... ?

Probably the most serious "Heavy" topic since Spanish Flu, WW1 and WW2..

obv much, much bigger than than 9/11 and 2008 housing crisis.

I am not sure what would be a better 21...

Imo, the only way this is not 21 is if he randed 20 and wanted to ensure 3 points.. It is way too big to be 19...

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

I have a different view of heavy. There are other topics that are more controversial (religion, politics, abortion).

There are other topics that are more complicated (philosophy).

My first gut impression is that Covid is around a 15.

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

I don't think this has hardly any 21 equity.

If Gad doesn't snap say "The Holocaust" for 21, that's on him.

Coronavirus is serious, but people are still making jokes about it. That's not true of the Holocaust, even though we're about 3 generations removed from it at this point.

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

I can get behind the 19 angle, but never see myself voting less than 19. 20 I can see with the holocaust as 21, but COVID is currently a "heavy topic," so there is some recency bias with COVID

The holocaust was horrific, but I don't see it as a heavy topic today.. There are like .001 holocaust denyers and everyone else knows/believes how awful it was. There is whole world on two sides to COVID (saving lives vs saving the economy), and that makes it pretty "Heavy" imo.

Am good with 19 for the reason EB stated, but like 20 better if not for that. Am not sure Gad would clue like that.... COVID to get 19 (although COVID is a legit 19/20/21..., so it is fine)

I am good with 19 or 20, or whatever the majority is.

EDIT. COVID leans 19 and Corona Virus leans 20/21...... he had two choices on how to frame it...something to think about..

This suggests at an angle/illegal clue (which I'm sure Gad did not intend or even consider). Nich had to give a replacement clue last game for the same reason, though I don't recall the exact details.

There is no way gad would say covid for 19 because of the covid 19 thing

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

In case I don't post again I am like 55% 21 and 45% 20


Yeah, I agree that GAD would probably not put COVID for 19.. in fact it might be backwards from what I said... Corona Virus might have more 19 equity than COVID, just because it would not be angly..

I am 21/20

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

Cross post with bolt but now is it an angle shoot to not say 19 cuz we know he wouldn’t say covid for 19 so it can’t be 19? Lol. 19 woulda been my first reaction

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

i'm not in this game, but then you could argue that it's never 19, and therefore makes the guess "easier". which, i agree, i'm sure was unintentional... but that's the type of clue this rule is trying to eliminate, so this discussion/metagame doesn't even occur

I think it’s never 21, there are way more serious things than covid.
My guess would be 20

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

But it’s certainly possible I woulda said 19 without the whole covid 19 thing. So I dunno

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

Shoulda clued coronavirus to avoid the covid-19 thing, but he prolly wasnít thinking

But if it were 19 he woulda noticed and not said covid so it is prolly similar to my situation last round

I can't imagine a single topic being discussed by more people and with more intensity today than COVID (and all things arising from COVID)....

What single issue is more serious than COVID??

Do you know anyone whose future (work, health, business, financial certainty, K-12 education, access to services, university education, food et al supply chain, etc, etc) is not linked to COVID? I don't know anyone not impacted, or not expecting to be impacted by COVID. Not a single person.

Nuclear war? The planet being destroyed? Something like that. I feel like the extreme ends of the spectrum are very easy so if itís not an obvious 21 or 1 itís not those. Yes, right now it is the most important subject but he can clue for anything in the history of earth or the future of earth. Something about dying or the destruction of mankind of something is a much more obvious 21 than covid
