Guess: haste

For the record, I would argue against Bible verses, but not books of the Bible, but :shrug:

I conjured that clue out of the great red nowhere and I was granted permission, and considering Jerome used a board word, I have no regrets at all.

Haste is red.

Play or pass.

Guess: Space

We still have one guess for the basketball thing that we got wrong, plus two for 2001, so the countertop clue only has to give us 2 words.

No point in passing now. Keep guessing till we win, lose or miss.

Space is the KILL WORD.

Blue team has lost.

Now you see why I was so pissed off and barely restrained myself from posting something nasty. Jerome put THE GOD DAMN KILL WORD in his clue and doing so, steered you away from it. I have more to say but I have to make some fucking coffee.

HERE is a fucking example. This steered people away from THE FUCKING KILL WORD because Jerome used it in his clue.

I do not like that grid. Too many too closely related words.

It was a very difficult grid, that was the point. I only even got away with Exodus 12:11 because it was compensation for Jerome using Space to drive you all away from the kill word.

How are we generating these grids anyway?

Apparently the boardgame comes with a deck, presumably there is some balancing of words in it that prevents it from having really odd words or too many words in the same semantic space...

Quartz was our remaining word and had I been given that last turn, I'd have used Crystal: 1 for the win. Kael taking Gravity off the board was the greatest gift I could have imagined, because it was probably the most difficult word on the entire board to make a clue for.

There is a list of words to use - which I used for Rounds I, II, & III. but you can pick and choose as you like - they are not distributed for you in a balance way.

The IV round - I just put in my own words to make it more challenging. :sadcheer:

I got the list of words from what they use at BoardGameGeek for their online games. It is a longer list than what is on the game cards.

Eh, a lot of it was luck, I have to admit. I was able to line up some words really well but I have to say the star of the entire show was Erimir with his amazing clues.
