Clint Eastwood plays tough characters, but looking over his life, I don't know that he himself is such an iconic description of tough. "Carnival Workers" doesn't seem to have much of a ring to it. I thought about fundraising, which can be tough, but it isn't always tough.

So brains vs. brain surgeons. While I can see arguments to be made for the toughness of brains, the concept of brain damage, concussions, etc. makes me think that maybe they're not so very tough after all, in and of themselves. Brain surgeons have to be very determined and tough to get through all of their studies, most likely live with student loan debt, and perform grueling surgeries, possibly for hours on end, where the stakes are so high.

So, I'm inclined to pick Brain Surgeons.

The winner of the round is Petrichor!

Scores:
Bob - 1
Catspaw - 1
Monty_Whittaker - 1
Petrichor - 1



I had a few reasonable choices for this one, settled on Clint Eastwood because he's the iconic example of the quintessential 'tough guy' in most roles he's had, especially the classic ones.


Round 5:

The judge is: bookworm
(Yes I will know who played what, but I promise to not let it affect which card I choose. And in some versions of the game the judge does know who played each word, so it's not a big deal.)

The green card is: European (of Europe, from Europe, about Europe)

Players, PM me the red card from your hand you think this best describes!

The submissions are:
The Olympics
Italy
Feathers
Alfred Hitchcock
Leeches


I will now pick the one I think is best described by European.


Some good choices, the only one I can't really rationalize is feathers. Leeches are a stretch, but I can get there through medieval. Olympics is good, but not always European; though the origin is there. Hitchcock is a great play, but I have to go with Italy it's a definitive match.


The winner of the round is Petrichor!

Scores:
Petrichor - 2
Bob - 1
Catspaw - 1
Monty_Whittaker - 1



Round 6:

The judge is: 321tumbler

The green card is: Foreign (alien, unfamiliar, exotic)

While I'd like to say "Bell Bottoms" because I don't really understand them, I think I have to go with King Henry VIII. The main definition of the word describes something from a different country, which he is.

This is tricky!

Well, I'm going to eliminate the Milky Way because other options fit better. While I assume James Bond is talented, I've never actually seen a James Bond movie, so I'll rule him out, too.

Now, between Steven Spielberg and the FBI... :-k I don't actually know if Frank's Breakfast Inn is particularly talented, so I choose Steven Spielberg! \:D/
