Slogans, in the technical sense used here, refer to the subclass of announcements made by the scorer whenever a player passes a particular landmark. They should never (or, according to some authorities, always) be confused with gambits. For the canonical "first to one hundred" (with or without bounceback) game these are:
||Silly Sound effect|
|12½||You've dipped your map||Disputed||Splish-splash1 3|
|25||You've singed your map||Disputed
|50||You've got your tin hat off||Canonical
|75||That's your mess-tin||Established||Rattle-rattle4|
|90||That's your waterbottle||Established
Additional scores on longer games include Albatross ("Eargggh"), Kin Il Sung and Yom Kippur but details of when and why these are applied are lost in an alcoholic fuzz.
- 1 : Rather than a sound effect, James would tap his beer glass with a biro at this stage
- 2 : Rather than a sound effect, James would knock his beer glass over with his biro.
- 3 : Nick does not acknowledge this score, nor issue a sound effect
- 4 : Nick prefers "Wheeeeeee ....... Clunk!"
- 5 : Nick prefers "Wheeeeeee ....... Splosh!"
