Tough clue. For mine, think I've seen a better option that wasn't in my list earlier.

I can't comment. :nod: (Although I'd be curious what it is :P. In the "in person" game the Spymasters aren't suppose to talk/react, but they can hear/listen to what the teams say/discuss)

Other than to say (for both of you) I'm trying to keep it interesting other than a series of (1s) - and keep you both in contention.

Playing both Spymasters is actually really horrid :lol:

This is now "general game chat" so I think should be ok. If you've got your last clue right, you've got 3 in the bank. So you have 2 more to guess. Assuming I can do them in 1 clue. I'd still have to say [Word] 5 to keep you in contention just to give you enough guesses. I think Jiggy's 1 "in the bank", and only 2 left to guess.

It's actually a lot closer but AFAIK you've got to win next turn, or Jiggles can do it with 2 (1s).

So both of you theoretically can win pretty soon - hence trying to push "big" clues on both of you rather than peter to the end.

Smith
Nest

I'd rather not guess a third if I don't have to

You do not have to - you can pass at any time (0/1/2/3 guesses as I said 3). So do you want me to take that as your guesses/order?

It doesn't matter what order, because they're both 100% correct, but yeah

I will always ask the question/play dumb -even if you're right

On that note

Aw, gooseberry fool, I just thought of a third.

Doesn't matter anyway, because nest was apparently not correct. :|

(If you want my thought process: Elrond played by Hugo Weaving, like a basket, which in nature is basically a nest)

Ah. Have you tried the pictures version? That is brutal#

I don't know where they got the word list for this tool - but it "feels" a bit worse than in the actual game.

Ah, I'm locked in so won't change but noticed I only have four to guess total as I have 8 to find and 4 found. Ah well.

I thought Aunt for creature as it sounds a bit like "Ant"

You two did stonking on first clues.

Mirage - Figment and Mistake was intend

Creature - was aiming for Mascot, Hide (either from or it's Hide), Next

Elrond - Huge Weaving to Agent Smith, Elrond to RING and ROUND, Elron to FELLOWSHIP and BROKEN that was a stretch :))

Jiggles next one would have been Record 2(Round shaped, and broken) and hoping he got to mistake

Dismissive was literally for "Whatever"

The number was so you had enough guesses (it's number +1) to go for the creatures you had left from mucking up the time before and then 1 random. (Maybe I should have had said three)

I just didn't see you thinking your Aunty was a dismissive creature :P

Bubbles I didn't have a plan for at this point :fp: (how the hell do you link "Whatever" and "Bubbles"?!?!? I was trying to think Chav/Bubblegum blowing types- but that kept linking in teenage)

Maybe your random guess could have got to it (Creatures blow bubbles!!!) but I didn't really think it would :P
