Agreed on all counts.

Blue team can take another guess if they wish, or pass. So you have to wait until they let us know.

Edit to be clear: You will not be giving any more clues either way until after red goes again. :)

Dimple and ditch seem to fit.

Assuming we get two right we should carefully consider the probabilities of taking a wild guess instead of passing - the blue team only have to get two right on their next go to win the game.

I think dimple and ditch are both good choices for concave. I think guessing randomly is a crapshoot, it is possible that the two words that they have left aren't easy to group without including a third. on the other hand.

with the assassin word, aren't we just as likely to lose as to win with a random guess? also if we guess a neutral word we help them.

You help them even more if you guess a blue word, or the assassin. :) Not that a wild ass guess is not sometimes a good strategy. I guess I should :ziplip:

On reflection, I think you're right about the guessing blindly.

We have two words left, and one of them fits both Flesh and Powerful. I think Elephant is our best option here.

My other guess for Powerful would be Battery.

Guess: Elephant

We could shoehorn either baseball or satellite into 'powerful', but I am heavily leaning towards your choice of battery.

We were having trouble with elephant earlier, I think we talked about it as a possibility for flesh, so she was choosing a clue to get us to elephant, and then something else.
