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

Driver seems like a lock.

Road also makes a lot of sense.

Rubber tires follows nicely from that.

Lots of Limousines have Leather interiors.

Coach can be a synonym for car - it seems possibly the weakest to me and could be the extra, but I could see an argument for it, it might be better than Leather.

Cow and patient for sure. The last one could be farm, I don't really see anything better, but it's hard to eliminate it while hinting cow, so maybe it isn't.

Ah, Patient. That makes a lot of sense. We might as well try Farm third. Bass and Wizard seem possible to me, but much weaker.

The top 3 seem pretty clear to me:

*Smoke often has an unpleasant smell.

*Onion can have a strong and often unwanted smell.

*Farm smells bad when there's a lot of manure.

The fourth is harder. A lot of people don't like the smell of fish, so Bass is possible - that's probably the best I can come up with. Other options could be Sticker (the scratch-and-sniff kind - often don't smell as good as the things they're supposed to imitate and can smell bad if they get old) or Peanut (could smell quite bad if it rots, and is the only food left after Onion and Bass).

I think I'd favor going in the following order:

Smoke
Onion
Farm
Leather (from Limousine)
Coach (from Limousine)
Bass

The top 3 are pretty much interchangeable for me, though, and I'm definitely willing to hear other arguments.
