Once all players check in we can get started!

Standard Rules

We will play in teams with the rules as written in the rulebook. This means no multi-word names, acronyms, titles, compound words, or homonyms. Players may collectively choose to loosen the rules and allow one or more of the above, but all players must agree.

Remember, this is a co-operative game. You are divided into teams, but you all win or lose together.

PBF Specific Rules

1. To make a guess, point to word in bold. Make only one guess at a time. If you are certain you will pass after making a guess, you can point to word, then pass.
2. Pass when you are done guessing.
3. No editing or deleting posts.
4. Use this thread for all discussion of which words to point to, but be careful not to hint at or indicate the color of any words on your grid.
5. Use your team's geeklist for discussion of which clues to give, but do not discuss the other team's clues when doing so; that is reserved for this thread (see 4 above). Do not look at the other team's geeklist.
6. DO NOT LOOK AT THE OTHER TEAM'S GEEKLSIT.
7. Do not use search engines to come up with clues or to determine what a clue means. If English is not your first language, you may use it sparingly for help.
8. Play in a timely manner. Clue, guess, or pass must be made within 24 hours or less. If something comes up that makes it so that you can't check in on the game for longer than 24 hours, tell us in the thread so that it can be decided if the game should move on without you or not. The clock does not run on weekends (8 P.M. Friday night to 8 A.M. Monday morning, BGG time) or major holidays.

The Grid

Each team will have their own grid sent to them in geekmail. Clues will be marked as follows, along two adjacent grids:

cape - Not guessed by anyone
cape - Red Team guessed Bystander
cape - Blue Team guessed Bystander
cape - Both teams guessed Bystander
cape - Agent

Of the two options immediately above, I think I like the second better. If we wanted to, we could make the table headers say:

RED CLUES, BLUE GUESSES

BLUE CLUES, RED GUESSES

I know! At least Blue the dog is not evil.

Blue Team, do you want to go first since we went first in the last game, or do you want us to do that? We're ready to clue if you want us to.

I think it might be easier to stick with the old system and just get used to looking at the colored words. I have been tripped up by that in the past, but updating and looking at two grids seems harder to me. I'm happy to give it a try though.

I certainly wouldn't call it perfect - at least not right now, before we see if it works!

Feel free to take your time looking at the grid. I didn't realize you hadn't looked at it yet. I don't think we should make it mandatory that we alternate which side has to clue first, since it is quite possible that one side's grid could be much more difficult that the other side in any given game. It could be in this case that your side is much easier, in which case you should clue first!

Point to dressing

My second option is jockey, for sure. And with that my ranch knowledge ends we could try the rifle, I guess.
