There is no rule that disallows it, so I think I have to let it go. Limoncello is absent for the next few days, so Jerome and I will be the game moderators until she returns.

We should get Crumb's opinion as the starter of the game. I know he's playing for one team, but I still trust him to be impartial.

Fair enough. I can't find anything in the rules that says the clue can't be used, but I'm not sure I like it since it DOES use a word on the board. I'm good with letting Crumb adjudicate here.

Well I hate to make a decision being on one of the teams. Rather leave it to Limoncello, but I would lean against it since clues can't be clue words, but I likely didn't explicitly say that in regards to proper name clues containing clue words in my rules.

Checked on BGG and there is a thread about this very question and the consensus is that a proper name clue that contains a word that is on the board (but not guessed) is not allowed. (Clue Word Part of Card / Proper Names | Codenames | BoardGameGeek)

I also found this in the Codenames rules which were not in the rules that I provided.
Quote:
PENALTY FOR INVALID CLUES

If a spymaster gives an invalid clue, the
team's turn ends immediately. As an additional
penalty, the other team's spymaster may cover
one of his or her words with an agent card
before giving the next clue.
But if no one notices that a clue is invalid, it
counts as valid

Sorry guys, I didn't realize what I did until now. I will not give my thinking when I made the clue so as to not make any influence, but it was not intentional, I didn't realize what I had done.

:(:(:(

Hi guys from camping... I'm going to let that clue go... Megatron's team may guess normally with no penalty.

However, Jerome may do the same thing for 1 turn. Include a grid word in his clue. He may use this at any time.. Even final clue.

I'm sorry I'm not around... Thanks for assisting with the game.

Good Luck Red and Blue :cheer:

I... think you have that backward. It was Jerome who used a grid word in his clue, not me.

The order I would pick them in: Astronaut? Space? Orbit? Galaxy?

Some of the others come could also work.

I'm not sure we should guess Space, cause if that was one I'm pretty sure he would've realized he was using it. Astronaut would be my first pick.

Well, haste and sandals are in the verse. So those are probably safe bets.

Doesn't seem fair to me. If we can reference chapter and verse of the bible, why not page and line numbers for any other book, or a URL to a web page that contains all the words we're giving clues for?
