I think I agree with slim's reasoning, I'd go with 2, 4, 1

If Team B guess our code correctly again, we've lost - and they get to guess before we do. :scared:

Actually, we will finish the whole round no matter what happens in the first half. So if Team B guesses correctly, Team A will still get a chance to guess Team B's code. Then if they also guess correctly we will go to a tie breaker.

Round 5

The clues for Team A are theatre, bells, march

Team B is up to guess Team A's code.

1: traffic, Rule, Court, decision
2: calendar, time, vacation, payday
3: daffodil
4: Park, Ride, recess

theatre, bells, march

Thoughts

theatre - is an engagement - that you would put on your calendar?

bells -could be a school bell for recess?

march could be for Spring - and that leads us to daffodil?

theatre... not sure. It is for entertainment/leisure, like parks and (school) recess I suppose.

bells ... some types of daffodils have bell-shaped flowers, but I don't know. Also go for clocks.

march - could be related to the calendar. Or spring flowers.

If park, ride, and recess are something like 'amusement,' that one could be theatre, too. Recess would be a weird choice for that, but they were a little confused about recess as a clue, so I'm not sure that's not it.

A bell could be a kind of flower, but I think it's more likely to fit either 2 or 4, and I'm leaning toward 2.

That stupid fucking daffodil. That's my best guess for march, too.

Bells toll - which also works for traffic rule - like a toll road? not sure about court and decision - but you might also pay a fine or toll there?

I just don't know. I would probably go with 2 4 3 I guess, but I'll go along with whatever you guys say.

Someone else decide, and I promise to defend your honor and accuse the other team of cheating if we lose.

Default Re: Decrypto

So we're only in disagreement about the 'theatre' clue and whether it best fits our number 1 or number 2 code word. I still think my choice is more likely. :chin:

I've not had a very good record so far with my guesses in this game though. Please give additional thought to the 'theatre' clue and its two possible answers (assuming we're all correct about 'bells' and 'march') and then I'm happy to go with whatever you decide.

I like to put the clue words together with each of the possible code words and do an Internet search to see how many hits the word pairs get and whether or not the found pages actually seem to show any relevance between the words.

One of the challenges of this game is that each team is unable to discuss its own clues openly without giving additional hints to the opposite side - even saying how confident or unsure we are of our guess gives things away. :unfrustrated:
