I would also like to exercise my right to be a field operative, if that's okay with my fellow red teammates. :]

For the extra rules, I vote no on the compound word and proper name expansions, yes on the acronyms and abbreviations, homonyms, and rhymes.

That's my inclination, but maybe we should wait and give Adorabebs a chance to weigh in this time?

Thanks also for running this game. It's really fun, and I probably wouldn't have heard about or played it otherwise. :]

I'm fine with the rules from Games 2 and 3. I'm also fine with whoever as the spymaster - I'm the only one of us on blue who hasn't been spymaster, so I'm interested, but I'm not gunning for it, if that makes sense.

Good game, y'all!

In hindsight, trying to link Air and Life was too much of a challenge on this board (and possibly any board, period). But, I'm happy we still got so close to a win. :]

/in for the next round, as long as I don't have to be spymaster.

I hadn't considered that. Still, I think I agree with Felissan; Gold --> Crown feels like a more direct path than Gold --> (Vegas Golden) Knight(s).

I agree with suit, and stock would be my second guess. Green is the other team's word already (along with ivory), and I think genius is a stretch. I could also see some connection to Toyko through its stock exchange, but that also feels like a stretch.

We also have the other gold item to consider. Looking at the board again, mine not only immediately jumps out at me, it's calling me a dummy for overlooking it. I almost want to guess mine first, then go for this clue, because it feels like such an obvious answer now. Sorry, xofelf, for not seeing that before... :facepalm:

We automatically pass; we can only guess one more word than the number the spymaster gives us.

I thought about "sharp drop," but it seems like more of a reach than the other answers. And I could see Note relating to sharp, but Opera feels like a super-reach.

Spike first is fine by me.

I was actually thinking it could be circle and round, because cake avoids answers that the more obvious "shape" clue wouldn't (like pyramid or pipe). I agree that maple could work. Maybe water, too, given it's an ingredient in cake batter, but that seems like a stretch.

I don't understand how cake relates to pyramid; could you elaborate on that?
