bad connection, hard clues but yes (ish)
 
12:50 AM
back home, so if anyone want's to revive this game I'm in.
 
 
16 hours later…
4:24 PM
anyone here?
 
not many
 
4:40 PM
I'm here :P
 
up for a new game?
 
I can continue
 
5:35 PM
I'm free to play
 
 
2 hours later…
7:30 PM
I'm intermittently here if enough others are to continue with the game
 
I miiight be around
)
 
contact 2 if @EricTressler is here
contact 73 if @DJMcMayhem is here
 
@GarethMcCaughan hi
 
hi! We're trying to resurrect the Contact game, as you can probably tell.
Who's actually here and paying any attention right now?
 
I also c73
 
7:40 PM
@GarethMcCaughan With Binky or *Blinky :P
 
With "Blinky", of course.
 
I'm here more or less
I think we kinda need @micsthepick
 
3. Composer famous for murdering his wife and lover
 
We could always start a new game of course
 
yeah, we do. I was hoping he might still/again be here, since he was not so very long ago.
 
7:41 PM
we could start a new one if he's not around; we had barely begun
 
Anyone else want to defend?
 
@GarethMcCaughan want to defend? I have just about enough time for 1 game
 
so we have me, @EricTressler, @DJMcMayhem and maaaybe @Mithrandir. Is that enough for a game?
Yeah, OK, I can defend.
 
Yeah
 
7:45 PM
Gareth defending: F
I'll try to make this quick, in so far as I have the power to do so without just gratuitously throwing things.
 
1: Pivotal component of a simple machine
 
1 is FULCRUM
 
correct
2: Shape of a bevel gear
 
73: Electric motor inventor
 
7:49 PM
@DJMcMayhem 73 might be FARADAY; I forget whether he invented an/the electric motor, but he certainly might have.
 
that was my guess too
 
Yep. It was Faraday
 
@EricTressler Perhaps 2 is FRUSTUM?
 
2: correct
 
74: Freddie's entertainment
75: Plurality of sticks
 
7:52 PM
@DJMcMayhem I have no idea who Freddie might be; perhaps 74 might be FUN or FUNFAIR or FAIR?
 
3: Instigate a rebellion
 
@DJMcMayhem 75 might, a bit farfetchedly, be FOREST?
@EricTressler 3 is probably FOMENT.
 
No on both
 
3 is foment
 
74 is pretty obscure
Revised 74: Freddy _______'s Entertainment
Ignore the spelling change
 
7:54 PM
that unfortunately just makes me more confident I don't know it :-).
@DJMcMayhem 75 could, I suppose, also be FENCE.
 
If no one else can contact it, I'll just give it up. It's pretty obscure
@GarethMcCaughan Also no
 
no particular need to give anything up yet; new players might arrive...
 
Speaking of which...
 
4: Musical instrument component and mild swear
 
@EricTressler Might 4 be F-HOLE?!
though I'm not sure it's really a component
 
7:56 PM
4: no
 
Ahh
Clever guess
 
or perhaps FIDDLESTICK(S)?
 
that's it
 
Sid
16. F1 Car
 
6: Violent result of a mistake in the chemistry lab
 
7:57 PM
C 16?
 
1: Chemistry.
 
Sid
contact 6
 
@EricTressler 6 might perhaps be FUMES?
 
6: no
 
or FLAMES?
@Sid perhaps 16 is FERRARI?
 
7:58 PM
no again, so apparently it's not a great clue
 
Sid
@GarethMcCaughan 16 is correct.
..uncontact 6
 
2: Not an accomplishment.
 
C 6?
 
updated 6 to begin with "violent"
 
C 2
 
7:59 PM
@EriktheOutgolfer Perhaps 2 is FAILURE?
 
75: Refresh
 
Sid
mayyyybe contact 1
 
Sid
contact 75
 
7:59 PM
@DJMcMayhem Perhaps 75 might be F5 (which most web browsers interpret as a request to re-fetch and/or re-render the current page)?
