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.

A two-word clue (word + word + number) may be used if the players elect to use one of the three bonus slots for London. (See the Mission Log.) It is acceptable for one team to either ask the other team if it is okay to use a bonus slot, or use a bonus slot without asking. Note that we are using the locations from the campaign log, but reduced by 2 clues (coming from bystanders if possible). Taking down Death Eaters isn't easy, especially for muggles!

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

well, if it was Kitche, Plate and Ceasar, that would make it Salad 3. I'm inclined to associate the look of black pepper with gun powder, so it may be Pistol aling with Kitchen and Plate.

Pistol was on my list of possibles because pepper spray is another weapon used for some of the same purposes. However, I'm putting my money on Dash. A recipe could easily call for a dash of pepper. Also the Mrs. Dash brand of sodium-free spice blends has various types of pepper in some of the flavors.

I believe Caesar dressing contains black pepper, which makes it difficult for me to choose which to exclude of Plate, Kitchen, and Caesar.

Ah, I see, that makes sence, I haven’t heard that expression or the brand name.

I think that Kitchen is the most solid of the three other words we are considering, so I’d go for Kitchen, then Dash, and probably finish up with Plate, keeping Caesar in mind I guess.

Point to Kitchen

Lots of things on this board could be Living...Kid, Squirrel, Drone (like the type of bee), Bee, and Jeweler; also, Sleep and Heart are quite good for Living as a person certainly can't live normally without a Heart, and Sleep/rest is an important part of Living for many Living things...

In one of our last games in the previous campaign, they clued Alive 4...is the difference here very important? I feel like it could be...

Of the ones I just listed, Drone is probably the weakest as there are non-Living Drones of course...the other 6, though...I'll have to think some more...

Dang, I got to get back in the rhythm of this...

I like Squirrel, Kid, and Werewolf, but there are a lot of possibilities.

Note monday was a snow day for me and I spent the day shoveling and running errands so had very little BGG time. I will consider it a weekend day. Please point to something by 8:26 BGG time today.
