Because I will be away tomorrow and can't play or have any internet fun - I'm going to take a guess for Team A. Crossing fingers :crossed:

Guess: Cook



I'll leave the other 2 guesses to my teammates. :nod:

Also just want to point out the title of the grid contains the number of agents left before the game is won, and the number of turns remaining.

Right now you have 8 turns to get 11 agents.

Employees sounds like we want "person who does X", while excluding King.

We've already got Cook...

Plumber seems like the really obvious next choice. A singer can also be an employee, so I'd say that's word #3. Baseball teams have employees, and hockey teams employ a Zamboni driver, but neither Baseball nor Zamboni are employees. A thief is also a type of doer, but not typically an employee.

Since I think plumber is very obvious, I'll just go ahead.

Guess: Plumber

A thief could be employed by someone to steal something, but that isn't going to be my guess. I like Erimir's reasoning for Singer to be the remaining word.

Guess: Singer

Group A can guess again or give your next clue.

I will be away for the next few days. Feel free to run things yourselves as much as possible. I will try to check in.

I will await feedback from one of the other two, but we're going to give a clue, of course.

Catwoman is a thief, so that would be my first guess if my team mates agree. If that's right then for the second guess, I'm not really sure - girl maybe? I suppose it would be more acceptable nowadays to call her a woman rather than girl. I don't really know much about Catwoman so perhaps there's an obvious association that I'm missing. :shrug:

Her costume has cat ears so maybe that's one? Hmm. S3ems like a reach though.

I agree that ear is perhaps better than girl but I'm not totally convinced. I'll guess the thief one to keep things moving along. :crossed: Maybe Kael is a Catwoman expert and can help us by making the second guess (if this one's right) when he's next here.

Guess: Thief

It has to be ear or girl. Damn. I can't shake the feeling that ONE of those is an assassin word and I'm overthinking myself into a trap here. Girl seems so obvious.

Thinking aloud here in the thread about my potential guesses is okay right? I mean, we're not competing. Should be fine as long as I don't talk about my group's grid, yes?

:cheer: Obviously we'll pass now. It will probably be a while (cos of time zones and weekends) before we've finished conversing in PMs about our next clue. :onhold:

Thanks. Yes I thought after I'd posted that I'd forgotten to adjust the time thing - and I forgot to highlight the thief word too - fixed now.

So now we've got the number of remaining words down to match the number of time cards, I suppose we only need to give single-word clues from now on to win the game? I suppose it would be nice to do a couple more twin-word clues, if we can, so as to get ahead of the curve in case of a wrong guess later. :chin:

Technically the time is six now. You take the time token after a team passes.

The guessers should feel free to discuss their guesses here publicly as you have been doing. Thanks for keeping up the grid!
