If you need me, please send me a PM


If you are new to Codenames, please at the least read the Quick and Dirty rules and the Field Operative rules. (Feel free to read the full rules too though).
If you are going to be a spymaster then you MUST have read the Legal/Illegal clues and the Spymaster rules.
Please note, if you're not in the current game, you must not comment on the game. You may PM me if you have any issues. (You can however post to say that you wish to /in for either the Field Op or Spymaster queue)

Spoiler: RULES
Official Rules:
  • The game will be played to the rules listed here. (The rules are also known to be available in many other languages if you feel more comfortable reading them in one of those—click here, then click on the flag associated with the other language. Just be aware that the game will be played in English.) The rest of these rules are additions and clarifications by me only.
  • Too lazy to read? Here's a quick video: https://youtu.be/zQVHkl8oQEU
Quick and dirty how to play:
  1. Players are split into 2 teams, each team will have a Spymaster and everyone else will be Field Operatives.
  2. Spymasters are given a grid of 25 words, some words will be Red, some Blue and 1 Bold for the Assassin. Everyone else is given a plain grid of the same words but not coloured in.
  3. It is the task of the Spymasters to provide clues that link together their teams words for the Field Operatives to guess.
  4. Spymasters have a list of rules they must follow for what clues are and aren't legal, this can all be found in the booklet.
  5. The Spymasters will take turns giving a single word and a number, the word is the clue and the number says how many words the clue is related to.
  6. Upon receiving the clue Field Operatives will discuss what words from the grid they believe are related to the word given.
  7. They may then start guessing words and the Spymasters will say whether the guess is right or wrong and colour the grid accordingly.
  8. If the Field Operatives guess the wrong word then turn automatically passes to the other teams Spymaster to provide a clue. Field Operatives may also pass at anytime if they don't want to guess any further words.
  9. The maximum number of guesses the Field Operatives may make depends on the number given with the clue. You may make 1 extra guess past the number given (ie if the clue is: WORD-3, the Field Operatives may make 4 guesses)
  10. The purpose of being able to guess 1 extra word is if you're missing words from previous clues, you can pick them up here
  11. If your team has fallen quite far behind then the Spymaster can provide 2 types of special clues:
    1) The Infinite clue, this clue allows your team to make as many guesses as they wish, but you don't know how many are related to the word given in this clue (although at least 1 word is going to be related)
    2) The 0 clue, again this clue allows your team to make as many guesses as they wish, but none of the teams words are related to the clue given (this can be used to try to push your team away from bad words)
  12. The game ends either when 1 team guesses all of their words (in which case they win) or if 1 team guesses the Assassin word (in which case they lose)
This is only the basic rundown of general gameplay, I advise you read through your roles rules below. If you're going to be a spymaster then please also look through the legal/illegal clues below.

Field Operative Rules:
  1. Guesses must be bolded and/or preceded by the word "GUESS" on a new line to count. (If you wish to pass instead of guessing, the word "pass" must be bolded or by itself on a new line.)
  2. You can guess more than one codename at a time if you wish so long as they're in the order you want me to process them. For example, if you put
    GUESS: ALPHA, BETA, GAMMA
    , and ALPHA is one of your agents but BETA isn't, I can't tell you anything about GAMMA (unless BETA costs you the game).
  3. Field operatives must make their first guess within 48 hours (2 days) of receiving a clue and then any subsequent guesses within 48 hours of being told if their previous guess was correct (This 48 hours is reset after each guess). After this time, the opposing spymaster may force a pass by submitting their next clue. If a guess is made after the elapsed time but before the opposing spymaster posts a clue then the guess will be valid.
  4. Field operatives may discuss clues with each other if they so wish, but they must do so in thread—getting help from outside the thread (for example, searching on Google) is not allowed, nor is help permitted from anyone not participating in the current game. (As a matter of fact, when in doubt, you should treat the currently ongoing match like you would a Mafia game.) Further, spymasters are not allowed to give their field operatives any further help than their clues. However, discussion of strategy is permitted in between games (as well as prior to the first game) by anyone regardless of whether they played the last game or intend to play the next one.
  5. You may not discuss past clues whilst waiting for your spymaster to give a new clue.
  6. A field operative may post outside of their turn, as long as they make it clear by using an easily-noticed shade of green for their text.
Spymaster Rules:
  1. On the key cards sent to the spymasters as well as in the thread reveal, red and blue codenames indicate that color team's agents, bolded gray indicates the assassin. (Innocent bystanders have no color formatting, but in the reveal, they will be stricken out to distinguish them from codenames not guessed yet.) The locations of each team's agents as well as that of the assassin is random, and
    the key may or may not correspond to a key card in the actual board game
    —this is partly because I don't have a physical copy of the game and partly to make it harder for more experienced players of the game.
  2. Spymasters are not permitted to post in the thread except to give clues or respond to guesses.
  3. When submitting a clue it should be in the format CLUE - NUMBER. (Remember you can use expert clues using 0 or Infinite as the number)
  4. You are expected to have read through the Official Rules booklet and know what clues are legal and what aren't (keep in mind that the flexible rules on page 7 are not in play)
  5. If you feel like a clue might not be 100% legal, you may message the other spymaster and ask for their approval, if they approve then it is a legal clue in any case. If they disapprove but you still think it should be legal, you may message me and I'll make a final ruling on it.
  6. If you post a clue that is later deemed illegal then turn automatically passes to the other team. The other spymaster also gets to cover up one of their teams words. I will always make a final ruling on this! Opposing spymasters should wait for my approval before covering up a word.
Legal/Illegal Clues (This is important to read through if you wish to call out an opponent on an Illegal clue):
  1. Your clue MUST be about the meaning of the word
    • You can't use your clue to talk about the letters in a word or its position on the table. Gland is not a valid clue for ENGLAND. You can't tie BUG, BED, and BOW together with a clue like b: 3 nor with a clue like three: 3
    • Letters and numbers are valid clues as long as they still refer to the meaning (ie: X:1 is legal for "Ray" or eight:3 is legal for "Octopus", "Figure" and "Ball".)
    • The number you say can't be part of the clue (ie you can't use citrus:8 to code "Lemon" and "Octopus".)
    • You must play in English and use words found in the English Dictionary.
    • You can't give clues based on it having different meanings in other languages (ie: Fart:1 is illegal for "Speed" because it translates to Speed in norwegian)
    • You can't give clues based on the letters in that word (ie: Hoe:1 is illegal for "Shoe")
    • You can't give the same word in another tense (ie you can't use "Broken" for "Break")
  2. Homonyms and Spelling
    • Same sounding words with different meanings are considered different words (ie you can't use the word "Night" to clue about stuff relating to Knights)
    • Words that are spelled the same are valid even if they're pronounced different (ie: Bow:2 is legal for "Theatre and "Arrow")
  3. Flexible clues (Not in play unless decided pre-game)
    • Compound Words: You can't use stuff like: "Rat Pack" or "Mother-In-Law" as these are technically multiple words.
    • Proper Nouns/Names: You can use single word nouns such as "George" for "President" or "China" for country but you can't specify such as "George Bush" for "Iraq"
    • Acronyms and Abbreviations: You can't use stuff like "CIA", "UK", "lol". You can use stuff like "Laser", "Radar" and "Sonar"
    • Rhymes: "Snail" is a valid clue for "Mail" (As it's a saying), it is a valid clue for "Whale" (As they're both animals), but it's not a valid clue for "Scale" because their only association is through rhyme.
Other Stuff:
  1. By default, the flexible rules described on page 7 are not in play. (Both expert clue rules are guaranteed to be in play, however.)
  2. Any player or spymaster may call out either an illegal clue or a rule break, to do so please put in bold PAUSE GAME and say why you paused the game. At this point nobody should discuss clues or anything. Please then ping me on discord and I'll come and resolve the issue. If you're unsure please pause the game anyway and I'll happily intervene. For illegal clues the opposing spymaster always has the choice to allow the game to carry on.
  3. If you're not playing, you must not call out any illegal clues, it is down to the players themselves. You also must not talk in the thread, even making jokes as this could influence the current players.
  4. All players may send prods/reminders to anyone on their team. You can only prod each player once per round and when you do so you must post in the thread that you have done it to avoid multiple prods. A prod must consist of the phrase: "It's our teams turn" and nothing else. If a player hasn't checked in then the game should still continue and the other players should guess words instead.
  5. It is not my responsibility to prod your players, I will not interfere with an ongoing game unless it is a rules clarification.
  6. If you wish for a rule to be changed, please PM me and I'll bring it up as a topic of discussion between games. Rules will not change during a game.
  7. I'm willing to let you pick teammates and even whether you want to be red or blue; just post something to that effect. If you have no preference what team you're on or what team color you get, it will be chosen at random for you.
  8. If you wish to be the spymaster please put /in as spymaster and you'll be added to the queue. Please note that there may be a couple of games played before yours. You are welcome to be a player in said games whilst you wait.
  9. You may join the Field Operator or Spymastering queue at anytime (And even both at the same time). However if you do so in the middle of a game, please drop me a PM to make sure I saw it. You cannot join a game in progress unless you're replacing another player.

Registers

I am
NOT
interested in being a spymaster.

Should there be a PT for the two spymasters? It could be useful both for end-of-game analysis and because it is easier than PMs.

I think bystanders should be yellow, because it might be hard to tell them from grey on certain color schemes.

EDIT: Just realized I am 12th... that might compromise my chances...
Retired Account
. I have no replacement.

After 2 years (almost exactly!) of inactivity I am giving MafiaScum a second chance...

Nah. I'm gone. Again.

Acknowledged.

No. No private communication with other players is allowed.

The bystanders are not colored; did you mean the assassin?

Signups for game 1 are now closed (a game can have at most eight players); the remaining players are considered to have signed up for game 2. Don't worry—signups are always open :)

Team assignments are as follows:
McMenno

Formerfish

Adorabebs

Vijarada

CreativeMod1

mallowgeno

VashtaNeurotic

Charles510

If I missed anyone, the colors will still be the same counting from the top;
e.g.
if someone signed up between Vijarada and CreativeMod1 that I missed, then CM1 is actually red and Charles will play the next game. Want to establish how mod errors of this type will be handled even though I think I got everyone :]

Please select who will be the spymaster for each team.

Oh, and I forgot: If you want to include any flexible rules from the official rulebook, now is the time.

Here is an image of the flexible rules, in case you don't want to have to return to the document.

Image

My thoughts:
1. Fine with compound words
2. Okay with proper nouns but not multiple word proper nouns (exception with location as suggested)
3. Totally good with acronyms
4. No idea on homonyms
5. Hard no on rhymes
6. Big yes on 0 and infinite clues

Also, really want to try to be spymaster, but I have no clue how good I'd be at it.

Good :D It's in the rules that they're in every game.
