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 grids:

cape - Not guessed
cape - Your team guessed Bystander
cape - Your team guessed Bystander but other team guessed it as agent after
cape - Other team guessed it as Agent
cape - Your team guessed it as Agent

Bath and Dryer seem quite certain. Maybe Sheet, as in it is a piece of cloth, too.

I, too, was drawn to Sheet. But I couldn't rule out Lighting and Bowl. I'm up for trying Sheet after Dryer though.

I like Ash and Toast the best.

Outside possibility that it's Lightning as that can result in some trees being Burned, but Ash and Toast are much more direct.

Well, this is not at all obvious to me. Is it Scarecrow + Homer? That might be Field, though I can see reasons why it mightn't be. Ink also seems like a strong contender, though not in combination with Homer. Possibly in combination with Scarecrow. Blind also trips something in my brain, but I don't remember what so I don't know if it's a strong connection.

What about Homer and glasses? Philosopher is asosciated with a bookish type or professor, who stereotypically wears glasses.
Homer and ink would have a much easier connection through literature.
Although I am not exactly sure if Homer would qualify as a philosopher, since he was mainly a poet, but I guess he could have been at least partially, plus he lived in ancient greece, which was filled with philosophers

Why Scarecrow?

The fact that it's Philosopher and not, say, Philosophy makes me want to find someone on the grid that could be considered a philosopher. I think the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz qualifies on that point (at least as well as Homer and probably better, in my opinion).

I agree Glasses is possible. I also see Venus as possible. I don't know that the goddess was much of a philosopher, but philosophers have been known to stargaze.

I am not that familiar with the Wizard of Oz, to judge if the Scarecrow character was a philosopher. We have to start with something, and based on the fact if that os right or wrong, we will get a lot of additional info, so let's decide which one we can start with.

I'm up for Homer. Even though he isn't mainly qualified as philosopher, his connection to ancient greece and him being a person indicated by philosophER, I'd say there is a high chance it could be a hit.

Moreover, I thought about why it had to be a Philosopher instead of any other professor, teacher, scholar etc, and I would say it could be to avoid Ink. Since if you put it crudely, philosophers rather talk and ponder over stuff, compared to those others, who are more asociated with studying, reading and writing, which would be asociated with ink rather than talking and thinking ))
