Well done Kael! Was worried there I had blown it.

I agree with you on what we have for their clues as well. Let's do it.

Guess 2 1 4

I have received the clues for round 3 from both encryptors.

The clues for Team A are court, daffodil, vacation


Team B here is your chance to even up the game. Please discuss what you think the code for Team A is this round and PM or post your guess here.

So they've got so far, my guesses in italics:

1 - traffic, rule. court
2 - calendar, time
3 - daffodil
4 - park, ride, vacation

So my guess is 1 3 4

other than daffodils might be found in a park (but not a ride) it's a random clue so must be 3

everything else makes perfect sense

so yes, 1, 3, 4

Two things:

1. Can you think of any reason we shouldn't just discuss our theories about what the words are?
2. I thought they had to guess the actual words, so I knew as soon as I found out otherwise that I'd lost that round for us. I am still working on some way to blame someone else for that.

Edit: There is no reason.

My guesses are that 1 is something like 'law,' which would explain in part why they weren't sure about 'traffic' in the first round, and that 4 has something to do with amusement parks. Three is the wildcard, and daffodil doesn't fit well with any of those other three unless 2 is Spring or something, which seems a little bit unlikely but I can't say for sure. Seriously, one thing is that I assume Cmurb wouldn't not give them a 3 again.

The only reason I can think of against lisarea's guess is that if word #2 is "date", then (calendar, time, court) would make sense, sort of. If you're dating someone, you're courting them.

That is interesting...

I almost suggested that as another possibility but talked myself out of it because of reasons.

I'm happy to go with that if you feel strongly about it.

These are the clues so far:

1 - land, locale
2 - green, tree
3 - path
4 - feeling

Now we have; Travel, Sea, ACRONYM

3, 1?, 4?

Default Re: Decrypto

What do we think their secret code might be?

1. (land, locale): area, district?
2. (green, tree): plant, vegetable, forest, natural?
3. (path): route, walkway?
4. (feeling): emotion, hunch, touching?

Travel: seems to fit 3 best with maybe 1 as a second choice.
Sea: in some sense it's the opposite of 'land' but I don't think it would be normal to use opposites for clues in this game - does it match with 'locale'? not really. There's a chance that the code word for 2 might be nature or natural or something similar, in which case 'sea' might match 2.
ACRONYM: could be anything really - I suppose one of their secret code words might be an acronym of something. It's also a way of shortening something which might fit with the idea of 'path', but I'm leaning to using the 'path' word for 'travel'.

So my best guess at the moment is 3, 2, 4. Kael has been right every time so far though, so I'd like to know what he thinks.

Yeah, I don't know if my luck is gonna hold on this one... ACRONYM is essentially a mystery, especially since I think it was all-caps on purpose and I have no idea what that might mean. Maybe one of their clues is a word that is also a common acronym? I dunno. The best place to put that would probably be 4, so I think we agree there. I also agree Travel fits 3 best so far. That just leaves Sea, and I really have no solid guess between 1 and 2 for that, but I like cep's reasoning for 2 so we can just go with that this time. So I'd guess 3, 2, 4.
