Signal Intelligence (player needed for a new game)
« on: August 16, 2021, 04:39:22 am »

For this game I will need exactly four players.
Players are divided into two teams of two. Each team is given a "cypher" of four words (via PM from the gamemaster).
Each turn one member of the team get's a 3 digit message to transmit to their teammate. This is done in thread (in fact there shoud be no PM communication at all between players, whether teammates or enemies.) In order to do this stealthily the should somehow hint at the cypher words. The other team gets one attempt to decode this cryptogram, by guessing what the message might be. Once they fail, the teammate must correctly decode the message in thread . Next turn the teams switch.
The game ends when either a team manages to decode the opponent's message twice (in victory for that team) or decodes their own cryptogram incorrectly twice (in loss for that team and victory for their opponents.)

Example:
Team A has the words "pig" "toaster" "cup" "engine". The message to transmit is "4,2,1". a player might post the words "car, bread, pink". Their opponents guess that the message might be 1,2,3. This is wrong, so the other player on team A gets to decode. She says "4,2,1". The gamemaster than confirms that the message is correct.
Now it's Team B's turn. They have the words "post", "jail", "security", "apple". The message is "2,1,3". So the player says "convict mails a passport". Their opponents guess the message might be 4,3,2. This is wrong, so the other player on team B decodes the message to be "3,1,4" this is also wrong, so team B is halfway to a loss.

Players:
Maximum Spin
IronyOwl
Naturegirl1999

Waitlist:
(none)

I don't think anyone else is interested. Does anyone have preferences for who's on their team?

Alright in that case Maximum Spin and IronyOwl are Team Red while Naturegirl1999 and Fluffe9911 are Team Blue.

Team Red transmits first. (specifically Maximum Spin transmits and IronyOwl decodes)

Irony, you should pay close attention and carefully consider every sentence in this post. You have complete license to do whatever you want with this information. The crow flies at midnight. You don't need to know anything about salesmanship.

Team Blue now gets one guess as to what the message might be. Discuss and when you're ready,  post the guess in bold.

Iím wondering if the word vigilant somewhere, though we need to somehow guess what order the words are in to determine their number order
