We played this game a couple of times. And all that the spy master had to do was only focus on one word at a time. The first team in both cases was able to guess all 9 words in a row since each had its own clue...

The other team never had a chance to guess in either game! Am I missing something?

yes, you only get to give one clue per turn. If it is correctly guessed the agents can guess one more time (and only once) but another clue is not given.

Note that clue givers alternate giving clues. So after red gives a clue, then blue gives a clue to their team.

After your team has touched 1 more than the number, you are done for that turn.

They should really rewrite the rulebook. For those of us who like the game, we know how it's meant to be played, but this question comes up often enough that obviously it's not as clear as it should be as written.

Ohhhhhhh!! What misled me was the rule saying if you guess right, you can keep guessing! It doesn't mean you keep giving clues!

Many thanks to all for replies. My mistake for misunderstanding the rule book blush

Rulebook was changed after the first printing I believe.

Yes, the new rulebook is here: http://czechgames.com/files/rules/codenames-rules-en.pdf

Pages 4 & 5 seem much clearer on this.
