Actually, I think I buzzed on 17 seconds to say DARTBOARDS, which was obviously wrong, but managed to stop myself just in time, and guessed wildly at STARBOARD.

Round 1 of my first game, and instantly established that my opponent and I were on the same wavelength. We looked at each other, and knew without needing to say a word that we were both thinking GUINNESS.
