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

Caesar and Rome seem solid, maybe Castle?

I feel like I'm missing something...

Oh, Maracas can be used in Latin music.

I agree with your thoughts, Castle can be the backup.

Point Caesar

Actually, just had one other thought - Degree?

At high-class colleges and universities, one can still get a Degree in Latin, I think. Also, aren't Degrees from universities (whether in Latin or not) often awarded with Latin titles? Like "magna cum laude" means "with great praise", right?

I'm sure I like Caesar and Rome better, but not sure about Maracas.

Hmm...I guess the argument would be that a Degree could involve Latin, while Maracas are more directly Latin.

Point Maracas

If this fails, I'd put Degree before Castle.

I feel good about Castle and Ram, although I'm not sure whether they're technically the strongest. Pentagon is also in my top three. Zombie is my runner-up.

Point to Castle

I agree with Ram, not really sure about the last one... I don't mind trying Zombie or Pentagon, I guess, though neither is particularly strong for me. Maybe Queen? Might be just a Castle byproduct though.

The more I look at our options here, the more I prefer passing, actually. If you feel more confident about a particular word, go ahead and point to it, though. I'd rather pass, though.

I would be surprised if it weren't either Zombie or Pentagon. Queen crossed my mind also, but I don't think it's right. The problem is that I really don't know which of the two it is. I'm leaning toward Zombie now, largely because Pentagon requires at least one additional step in the association. I feel like there's always a siege when zombies are involved, but I don't consume much zombie-related media.

Oh well, I'm going to try it. Fingers crossed.

point to Zombie
