12:26 AM
you already said it's not caesium, but I'm guessing it's a derivative word of that... caeside or caesite or something, but I don't know any (nor enough chemistry to generate them)
other than that (and 77) I can't think of anything.
 
yeah it's...
pass 77
 
ah ok
but we don't win until someone contacts, right?
hm

I don't know what 77 is

yes (though it's spelled caesarean, I believe)
 
yeah that was my word
 
Yeah, whatever it is. :P
 
sorry!
 
Pass on defending.

uncontact 102, maybe :P

Lol, OK

Also 101 is good
I even live (relatively) near Cheyenne, I should have thought of that
 
In Contact, everything is obvious in hindsight
 
And I've never heard of it. Was trying to make "Cargo" into a letter to get shy cargo. :P

24 dies (COLD, as in the cold tap)
 
103 dies, COCA COLA
103' dies, COKE
 
@PiIsNot3 What keyboard are you using?
@Alconja I considered that

@DJMcMayhem Hm? The < was pointing to the colon in "102:"
Doesn't involve keyboards
 
Oh, I see

Hmm, was hoping for more people to come online, guess we'll have to do with two!
104 dies, CONNECT, as in Only Connect
 
1:14 AM
27 dies, CONTOUR (map)
 
105 dies, CONWAY'S GAME OF LIFE
 
ah
 
I should have known 105
 
104?
 
> 104 dies, CONNECT, as in Only Connect
 
1:15 AM
I don't get it but whatever
 
It's a quiz show where teams make connections
It's where the phrase "connect wall" comes from, afaik
And the "music question" is a particularly devilish question that most teams hate to encounter
106: There, there...
 
29: Connect wall group: paper, toy, company, equipment
 
106: Console
 
c106
 
106: CONSOLE is correct
Contact 29
 
1:17 AM
29: Construction
 
29: correct
30: foreign soil?
 
107: What capitalist societies need
 
107: Consumers
 
107: CONSUMERS is correct
 
31: star sign
 
1:19 AM
31: Constellation
 
Contact 31
 
31: yup
 
30: Consignment?
 
108: Having a low standard deviation
 
30: no
 
1:21 AM
@PiIsNot3 I'm not sure, but I wonder if that's my word
 
Hmm, someone'll have to take a stab at it first
 
I'm not very confident though
 
108': Even
 
contact 108'
 
Hmm
 
1:23 AM
Actually probably not directly related, but close enough
 
pass 108
 
(you passing 108, or 108**'**?)
 
They're the same I thought?
 
It doesn't matter, both are the same
 
I thought 108' was a further clue to the same word
 
1:24 AM
108': CONSTANT?
 
108': CONSTANT is incorrect
Whoops
Both 108 and 108' were intended to be CONSISTENT
 
d'oh
 
Ahh. Not my word, nor constant
 
Probably should have made the follow-up "Logical" or something
 
32: bound
 
1:26 AM
Contact 32
 
DH
pass 32
 
Actually, wait, I don't know it lol
 
lol
 
:D
 
I was gonna guess CONSIGNED, but CONSIGNMENT was taken down
 
1:27 AM
33: action => reaction
 
Contact 33
 
32': criminals taught?
 
Augh, there's too many "cons" words for me to make a definite judgement!
Contact 32', which I assume is the same as 32?
 
@Alconja Now I'm less sure
pass 32 still
 
Well, 32 is technically dead cause I don't think I guessed it right
 
1:30 AM
I still passed it, you can still guess it
 
OK, lemme try one more time
32: CONSEQUENCE?
 
32: Nope. Was CONSTRAINED (32': Cons Trained)
 
Ah, darn it
 
Aaaand my word wasn't constrained
 
...this is taking a while
 
1:31 AM
But it's extremely close
Also, I'm sorry to do this, but 33: Consequence :P
 
34: boa
 
109: Boas do this
 
DH for sure
 
@Alconja ninja'd :P
 
33: yes :)
 
1:32 AM
pass 34, 109
 
109: CONSTRICT
 
34: CONSTRICT(OR)
 
What was 30?
 
34: yup!
30: CONSULATE
 
We def need more players for next time
 
1:35 AM
Yeah, better with more. Well played though. I need to go do some work now.
 
\o
gamEn
 
See ya!
\o
 
Finally home and settled in. Aaaand everyone's done, lol. Halo it is then!
 
 
17 hours later…
O/
Looking at the game above, DJ defended CONSTRICT, which was eventually guessed. What would have happened if he had defended CONST and someone gave a clue for CONSTRICT since the defended word is a prefix of the guessed word?
Does that count as a direct hit?
 
the clued word has to be substantially the same word, not merely a prefix of it
(or vice versa)
 
Do NAIL and NAILS count as "substantially the same word"?
 
yes
similarly NAIL and NAILED and NAILING
 
Yep, makes sense.
I have two words I want to defend. A short one at first for a quick game to get the feel of things and then a longer one for a longer game.
 
6:40 PM
dunno how many active folks are in here
 
Alright, brb in a few minutes, then I can start.
 
6:57 PM
Defending: T
