Decrypto - Recruitment

Random or moderator’s fiat sounds best for teams.

I’ll let others chime in for a bit but otherwise I’ll get this set up this afternoon (14:25PST as I post).

Random teams works for me as well.

Try random, and if it leaves many newbies in one team, retry??

Going semi-random here, with the first timers drawn first, then the seasoned vets drawn second. Teams will be as follows:

Team "A"


Team "1"


Please do feel free to come up with team names. I’ll post the round’s words once you all provide me with a first player for your teams.


I feel like the order you posted here totally works.

Happy with that.

Not done this on pbf before. How do we discuss within our teams - on the thread, or by PM?

Publicly I believe, so the other team can ‘hear’ our chat?

I honestly can’t remember.

I think it’s more fun if we let the intercepting side deliberate publicly. Deliberating your own teams clues should probably be kept to PM just to avoid any accidental spoilers.

I’ll post a game thread and send off first words to the teams a little later today. Off for a morning walk.

Just because I’m not sure what everyone’s doing on their end, I wanted to stress the importance of good bookkeeping. The thread and PM’s will get unwieldy fast, so even a quick scrap of paper with a rough format (per the official sheet) for the job will be a handy, if not indispensible, tool.
