A better format I feel would be to take all of the team's guesses at once, and process them in the order they write them.

So, I for outdoors (2) could have just said campsite, pigpen, elm (being the one extra if the first two are right). And that'd get me the first two marked, but still leave me none the wiser on whether elm was right or not.

It'd be easier to take turns, because it's not waiting on your individual responses to see if play flips or not, and it means less messing with images for you.

How is that different now? If you could have guessed another one I'd have let you before Roonie could guess.

I assumed that as you have (or think you have :P) got everything suggested, and have a lead, you wouldn't randomly gamble your extra guess to hope you pick a right card (and not the black :dread: ). Roonie has a clue he didn't get, which he why I expect he'll want the extra guess :)

If we were doing it "properly" though yeah there would be a clear "end of turn" notice :)

Yeah but I like it this way.

Also I'm coloring in Paint and copy/pasting twice - so don't worry.

We can do all guesses/multiple guess if you want. In a "solo" team game it might be easier.

Because your rules in the OP say to guess one at a time.

I meant your uncertainity about Elm.

But yeah the rules were written as though you had teammates you were conferring/discussing with :)

Good clue there Hexx. Took me a while to spot Bulb, and Jiggles made me question Elm as he thought it was his. I was half tempted to "pass" and wait and see.

You could be doing a safety lowball on the number. There could be 3 or 4 words on my side that could *potentially* be linked to the keyword, but only two of them aren't stretches.

Yeah don't make too many assumptions about the words.

I'm deliberating not commenting to either of you on the nature of clues or your guesses :P

Cabins are in the woods and therefore outdoors.

But then cartography is the study of the outdoors. And America is outdoors too. I think Hexx gave you a duff clue.
