Nope they got it right. Any way you can get people to say the word is fine. Since they both sound the same it doesn't matter they are thinking. If I got you to say Bill Clinton by using Shakespeare and Hillary I still got you to say what's on the card.
I'm sure you're right but I still think thats quite odd. It gives a totally different context to the word so you're not actually guessing the word on the card. Also it allows you to dodge all the taboo words on the card which are meant to be obstacles which is basically the point of the game?
Also how can you definitively draw the line between what 'sounds like' the word on the card and what doesn't.
Again i'm sure you're right I just find that ruling a bit odd.
And thanks for the help

I know it's odd to reply to a 3 year old message, but homophones are almost certainly allowed (as correct guesses, not taboo clues, of course). My big issue is that he pointed at his arms. Gestures and movements of any sort are taboo in Taboo.
