Arguments in favour of guessing Plate now:
- None of this being behind on the first turn. Yay!
- Have the extra guess available at a later turn. Whee!

Further considerations:
- If Plate is wrong, we end our turn in any case.
- If it's a neutral word, it's much like passing, except that Plate is known to all to be a neutral word.

Arguments against guessing Plate now:
- If it's our opponents' word, we're even further behind. Bad!
- If it's the assassin word, we lose. Very bad!

All things considered I now agree with Jerome's reasoning that passing is the better option.

Should reimbursement be our first guess?

The other one's not so obvious to me: lunch money is a thing we have in the UK (often in the context of giving to kids so they can purchase their lunch at school).

I think reimbursement should be our first guess. Lunch money would make sense here in the us as well. The only other one I can think of as related to money at all would be in a the christian sense of donation passing the plate etc. I don't think Kael would think of that.

So reimbursement, strongly

lunch money- seems likely

nothing else really.

I suppose the polite thing to do would be to wait for bey. But I'm pretty confident that he would agree that we should pass - so to speed things up a little I shall go ahead and do that. :crossed:

Pass

Well done Kael for giving us another good clue! :thumbup:

Heart is the obvious one to me.

As for the rest... Forehead and dimple come to mind, but I'm not too sure about them.
