Did you think about the 1 2 4? 1 3 4 is more likely, but that 2 niggles at my brain.

physical and close could be a hug? so pressure might be 3
eyes come in twos (usually) so couple could be 4
look and cosmos could be something like explore - so knowledge might be 2

so I am leaning towards 3 4 2

Physical and close could also be couple. And I'm thinking that if it were something like hug, couple would fit maybe even better than pressure, so their team wouldn't be able to guess which one it was.

I am leaning toward pressure being 1 and couple being 3, and I think you're right about 2. So my initial guess is 1 3 2.

Maybe 3 is feast? So serve would work there.

Meter probably works with 1, given number. I was thinking maybe 1 is heights or something.

Not sure what to do with shoot though.

I've been staring at the previous clues and trying to guess what the word might be. The only thing I've got so far is that 1. might be population. Is population hike a phrase? Google does produce about 3000 hits for that phrase, so I guess so?

edit: Cross posted with erimir

The other thing I've come up with is that the clue 'word' is such a weird clue. We're playing a word game, every answer is a word :D

So what kind of things could it be pointing to? book, letter, salutation? :D

I was thinking 2 might be song or lyrics.

I guess 1 could be something related to the economy... interest rates get hiked.

If 2 is something like poem/poetry (possibly lyrics) then maybe meter goes with that. Partly because I think ceptimus would spell the length as 'metre'.

Edit: further cross posting :)

If these guesses are correct, then I think we would be looking at 3, 4, 2 possibly. Only because I don't see how 1 (if it is population or something similar) fits with shoot.

Does nature, open, color fit in with shoot?

I think maybe shoot does go with 4, if 4 is some kind flower/plant. It works with nature, open and color. And of course plants have shoots.

So yeah, I think it's 3, 4, 2 and that their words are something like

1. population
2. lyric/poem
3. feast
4. plant/flower of some kind

I like 3 4 1. I'm not really feeling why Craft (why is it capitalized?) has to do with music or poetry. I think meter goes with 1, because yeah it sounds like we're measuring something.

I don't mind being overruled on meter being for 1, but I don't think it has to do with measuring because ceptimus would spell that type of 'meter' like metre. But maybe he's trying to throw us off :shrug:

edit: I think it's capitalised because that is how the person gave the clue. I don't think it means anything.
