"Bird ends"?
 
hi hi (just reading the rules)

@Rubio One of the ends of a bird is its bill.

12:16 AM
Ok go for it, I'm deathly tired of looking at B I words ;) and have no idea where he's going with that
 
The clue I deleted was IA place, for some which is Britain for Deus
 
Ah. so not BI, or am I missing something

@Alconja Big League Chew. (lol)
 
@Rubio ?!
 
@Rubio ...you're not getting away with that... no. :P
 
It is, or was, a really bad brand of trading card chewing gum
 
12:25 AM
Hey!
 
contact bobo
 
Is Contact still happening?
Apparently so.
Is the pinned status still accurate?
 
Yes
 
So, re: my contact above... what's the rule here, @Rubio just gets as long as he wants to think of a possibility and has to pass on it in order for me to give my guess?
 
@boboquack barnyard, barn stall, barn
 
12:26 AM
@Deus is slow today :-P
 
@Alconja Yep

Perhaps Earth is this disorder (7)
Or did I miss something?
 
That may be recycled as Bite ... ?
 
Fancy restaurant
 
12:30 AM
There's also this, but TGE disappeared:
1 hour ago, by TheGreatEscaper
Con infiltrates structure without you
 
@Randal'Thor yeah that too, although it's not the best clue
 
Contact, @Deusovi
(though I would have worded that clue differently :-P )
 
contact for deus
 
Bistro
 
Rubio?
Ah
Yep.
 
12:31 AM
I would've said "speedy Russian restaurant".
Just to make it harder.
 
@Randal'Thor Contact on that one!
 
Sorry folding laundry, I may be a little slow now and again
 
I'm doing a science prac
 
@Volatility, contact on your "Perhaps Earth" clue
 
Just did a test where gravity was defined as 10m/s, which is horrendous
 
12:32 AM
ewwww
 
@Deusovi I'll take an ugly swag at "biomass" but I hate it
er sorry. @Volatility
 
On Vol's clue? Nope
 
Ok I will, with fingers crossed, pass on that one.
 
Bipolar!
 
12:33 AM
Not just the rounding, but the units too!
 
+1!
 
@Deusovi Ooh, nice.
 
hah! i love it
now I have to remember my actual word again. lol
@Rubio defending: B I T
 
So, what happens with existing unsolved clues here? Are they just invalidated by the new letter?
 
my bite clue is out (it was bight)
 
12:35 AM
If they're invalidated, you say so and give up the answer (if you want)
 
If they are, then they are.
If not, then not.
 
Otherwise, you can keep them in
 
Sticky mess underfoot still stands
 
Very zen. ;)
 
Heh, B I went so long without a new letter that it slipped below the other pin on the star-board.

12:37 AM
So is this where we do some quick table talk and then delete the evidence before he gets back?
 
ok back
@Alconja lol
 
*whistles*
 
I may have found a slight flaw in your plan.
 
only one?
 
Pieces, maybe in horses and floating
 
12:38 AM

@Rubio Not quite.

Really? I thought it was quite ugly and horrible after I posted it.
 
@Alconja bitumen?
 
@Rubio +1
 
heh
I thought that a long shot
 
It's a fairly common word in Aus
Didn't realise until after I clued that it was regional
 
12:41 AM
Ya!
 
bits and bobs is fairly British too. I think
 
Though my classmates used to play Asphalt 8
 
More of what's not Bob
 
y'all are expanding my vocabularial mental bounds here
 
Regionalisms is probably a good attack vector actually

oh why
don't make me think
 
erm, that 0 is supposed to be italicised
 
Contact!
 
Contact to 'partial' by @Vol
(cheeky)
 
Hmm, here's an idea: how about we star all the outstanding clues, and unstar them as they're solved?
 
12:45 AM
@bobo yeah?
 
There are probably enough mods/ROs in here for that to work.
 
@vol Bit, or bit part
 
(I got the idea from one of Vol's old clues being randomly starred for some reason.)
 
bit slice
 
12:47 AM
-1
 
(This is going to BUG me)
 
You can give up at any time.
 
@Rubio Are you calling @Vol a bugger?

@Alconja as a wild guess, bitcoin value
 
@Rubio +1
 
@Deusovi er Bitcoin?
 
...Yeah
 
lol.
 
@Deusovi ?
 
12:54 AM
I didn't see the update, I was still trying to work out B|| in my head
 
So do we win by creating a clue for the actual defending word, or just come up with enough unsolved clues that the word is eventually spelled out?
 
Yes
 
Either one.
 
:)
 
The latter would eventually lead to the former :)
 
12:55 AM
^
 
Technically, guessing my word is what makes you win
 
But you can give a "fair" alternative word in defence yeah?
 
?
I have a single word, if you hit it unambiguously then you win
(and it would be churlish to quibble about, say, a trailing "S", in my opinion, but I'm not sure what the rule is)
 
But if we give a clue that clues that single solution word, and you come up with another word which also could be derived from the same clue, you'd "survive"?
 
No - your guess, embodied in your clue, is your guess.
If it's right, it's right.
