Sid
11:01 AM
Ah. Looks like I am in time to see a game end
 
Well, we can start again
Sherlock9 defending: A
 
Sid
10. The guy who made your name.
 
Are we playing?
 
10 It's not ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE
 
He-llo??? Anyone there?
 
11:07 AM
We are
 
Sid
@Sherlock9 Yeah
@Wen1now yeah
 
I can think of too many words starting with a
 
Any other guesses?
 
Boo
 
90: Rotate 180 degrees
I mean, I know that's not the actual definition. But I'm just going for guessable clues
 
11:10 AM
60. P: Bee
60'. V: Bird
 
Sid
@Sp3000 maybe contact 60?
 
Maaaaybe contact 90
 
Sid
25. A Void
 
91: Lobster, perhaps
 
Re 25: we're not on L :(
 
Sid
11:13 AM
(Maybe 25 is a bit unfair that, if Sherlock isn't on Puzzling)
 
40: Not a question
 
Sid
C40
@Sp3000 I know we are on A..
 
Sorry, Internet troubles
40 answer
 
40 ✔️
 
Why'd you say we weren't on L?
 
11:16 AM
C25 perhaps
 
25 absence
 
(because my knee-jerk reaction answer started with L)
 
Contact 90, loosely
 
Sid
@Sherlock9 no.
 
why use knee-jerk reaction instead of reflex
 
11:17 AM
41: Isaac with three laws
 
111: f(infinity)
 
c111 (but probably not)
 
c111
 
c111
I'll take a swin
 
1. Part of circumference
 
11:19 AM
contact 41
 
c1
c41
 
contact 1
 
may'swell contact these while they last
 
lol two of the Isaacs (AFAIK) have three laws
 
Contact 41 I guess
 
11:20 AM
I'm fairly certain just Isaac would've done
 
(but nobody was contacting it)
 
There were no contacts for just Isaac
 
112: *
 
41 Asimov
 
I'd say "Isaac ____" would be fine
 
11:21 AM
1 Arc
 
Oops. I should've looked at all active clues
 
41 ✔️
 
1 ✓
 
113, 114, 115: ^^^
 
92: 10^-10
c113,114,115 I guess
 
11:22 AM
c90 I guess
c113, 114, 115
 
92 angstrom
 
Hint for 91: Actually, I'm not 100% sure it's correct. Also lobster is misleading (if it is correct)
92 ✓
 
does "I guess" mean not certain
 
92': 10^-18
 
c92'
 
11:23 AM
contact 91, assuming it's wrong
 
Sid
Contact 91
 
1: Not ANSI
 
why are none of my clues starred
contact 1
1': ...
 
c92' I think
 
1 ASCII
 
11:24 AM
1 ✓
 
except I gtg pretty soon
 
92' ATTO?
 
so do I, so maybe I shouldn't have given so many clues
 
This may be kinda unfair
1: 1 (1)
 
yes on 92'
 
11:25 AM
c1??
Wait taking the 'this may be kinda unfair' into account, I can knock off a few question marks
 
42: vegetable or staging
 
112 isn't starred
 
@Wen1now a few = 2? :P
 
(and that is a real clue)
 
91 ARTHROPOD
 
11:27 AM
Contact 1
 
c112
 
92' is still starred
 
91 ✓ I guess
 
113 114 115 AT ALL ACTIVE
 
Contact 112
 
11:27 AM
yes on the 113 chain
 
112 ASTERISK
 
yes on 112
 
Okay I guess we can't snipe Sherlock9 with easy clues
 
Sid
@Wen1now Yes. That is indeed correct
 
47: <---
 
11:28 AM
contact 47?
 
c47
 
47': <---
 
c47
 
47'': <---
 
c47
c47'
 
11:29 AM
c47'
 
47''': <---
 
Apostrophe
 
116: Name of a programmming language that involves taking the crc32 of parts of the source code
 
47''': yup, APOSTROPHE
 
unc47'
 
11:30 AM
c two of 47, 47' and 47'' I guess
 
uncontact 47'
 
(star all the 47s please)
 
1' isn't starred
 
Sid
Was 25 ever guessed?
 
@ppperry It is... or is it a ninja star
 
11:31 AM
didn't look starred to me
 
I guessed absence for 25
Oh ABYSS for 25
 
Sid
@Sherlock9 I already said No to that
 
6: Contains benzene rings
 
Sid
Neither is it ABYSS
@ASCII-only contact 6
 
6: AROMATIC
 
11:32 AM
Uncontact 25
 
25 isn't even starred I think
 
(I would do 47'''' but that's already been guessed :P)
 
Sid
@Wen1now that's probably because (a) people are too conservative with their stars or (b) they don't think the clue is worthy enough to be starred
 
It's starred now btw
 
Sorry for dropping syntax, on phone
 
11:34 AM
Is it not because there are too many stars to fit on the starboard
 
1' ANSI
 
yes on 1'
55: who entered..
 
contact 55
 
Sid
@ASCII-only there is never Too many stars. You just need to reduce your screen size
 
47+': Husband
 
11:35 AM
111 ALEPH
 
@Sid Nope, there's a hard limit... my screen size is more than enough to show all the current stars
 
47+'': Husband's father
 
55': Recent puzzle theme that may seem a bit "out there"
 
Okay cya
 
Sid
11:36 AM
90 and 60 have been out there and contacted for a long time
 
Somebody else can man the 90 clue. I vote ascii only
 
Contact 55, 55'
 
Alright, I think I should pass on one of these
PASS 90
 
Did anyone contact that
 
I'm gonna bank on 90. AMBIGRAM as the closest thing that comes to mind
 
11:37 AM
If 90 isn't AXIS then I say that the hint was misleading
 
c90 maybe (forgot to do this, IDK if allowed)
 
@ASCII-only (not allowed)
 
noooo
@Wen1now Help how to man this clue
 
Contact 6 someone?
 
Anyway, we seriously have enough clues now :P
 
11:39 AM
RIP Wen is now a zombie
 
Okay then PASS 25
 
wen said "okay cya", so they probably just left
 
VTC too many clues
 
My guess for 90: ABOUT TURN (have another one but a lot less fitting)
 
@Sherlock9 (I uncontacted, did anyone else contact?)
 
11:41 AM
I'd like to contact 6
 
contact 25, 6
 
... now someone did
 
@Avigrail voila
 
@MikeQ pls guess
 
Oh @ppperry I guessed ALEPH for 111
 
11:42 AM
@Mithrandir contrabass?
 
25 AVOID ?
 
no on 111
 
@MikeQ :| i will be so disappointed if this is actually it
 
@MikeQ (@Sid?)
 
I have to leave now.
 
11:45 AM
o/
 
where is everyone
 
(111 was ASYMPTOMITE, 116 was A PEAR TREE)
 
yay I got 111 right
Although that isn't exactly correct
wait
 
Pass 60?
 
wth that's not a word @ppperry do you mean ASYMPTOTE
 
11:46 AM
I can't contact anything, and there are enough clues already
 
@Sherlock9 Sid is AFK and only contacter
 
I contacted 6
 
Stars need to be cleared on 111, 116, 90
I contacted 1.
 
I can't reach those
 
Pass 55, 55'
 
11:48 AM
I contacted two of 47(')(') as well
 
55. AVIGRAIL
 
@Sherlock9 can only pass one at a time
 
wait 55 is not starred has it been cleared already
 
contact 55
 
@Avigrail it's already been passed, you can't contact now :/
 
11:49 AM
Oh ppperry left, maybe that's why 55 was cleared
 
55 then
 
In that case 55'. ALIENS
 
c55' but almost certainly not (does it count as passed)
 
@Mithrandir Oh I misunderstood. I thought it was a clue, nvm then
 
55' ✓
 
11:51 AM
that is not a check mark
 
Whee. Next letter, @Sherlock!
 
Can we assume Sid is MIA and clear stars on his clues
 
(was sort of wondering whether 55' was unfair though, dunno if Sherlock checks Puzzling)
 
If he doesn't I'd say yes
 
Sherlock9 defending: A O
 
11:53 AM
I mean, there's plenty of other contacted clues anyway
 
I haven't checked Puzzling in ages
 
OK, everything dies ;P
 
60 - apiary, 60' - aviary
 
Yep
 
Yep everything does
 
11:54 AM
47 dies; ARWEN
47' dies; AVATAR
 
@Sp3000 :| aviary != birf
 
47'' dies; ARROW
 
those are the two I got lol
 
42 dies, asparagus
 
:| why arrow
 
11:54 AM
Ohh, that completely went over my head
 
staging?
 
47+' dies; ARAGORN
 
His profile picture
 
47+'' dies; ARATHORN
 
@Sherlock9 but why is that ARROW
 
11:55 AM
@ASCII-only "<--" is arrow
 
@Mithrandir :| three LotR clues = too many for starboard
oh .-.
 
@ASCII-only meh
 
1, 6 die, any guesses?
 
Aromate?
 
I had AROMATIC but close enough
 
11:56 AM
A for 1
 
1 ✓
1: Main artery
 
7: very pumped for this
 
2: mail service
 
@ASCII-only It's "apiary : bee :: aviary : bird" - it wasn't meant to imply that the answer was a type of bird
 
@Sp3000 Oh, I guess that works
 
11:58 AM
Contact 2
 
Hello
Contact 2
 
Asparagus staging = you throw off fuel tanks two by two while also using thrusters on all of them. Optimal in theory and popular among KSP players but hell to make in real life.
 
RIP nobody knows 1
 
Contact 1
 
11:59 AM
I'm sure we're just expecting Sherlock to get one and aren't bothered contacting
 
How is knowledge of PSE unfair on a PSE chat room but LOTR is okay
 
@MikeQ It's not PSE-specific
 
@MikeQ Right, the clues are for us and not for the defender
 
I guess?
