I would give Y, he will bomb, and I give 5.
I think the bombs are existing to manage this case.

So we are on critical situation. You need either to give yellow who seems good, or do something unconventionnal. It depend of the position of your chop too.
Playing #3 (=card in position 3 with 1 leftmost) is a possibility for make a play of y3 on some situation.
Or give an empty clue on a no double discard situation (depend what happen last turn) with someone who trust you for save 2 card.
Or an off discard.

Guess I would do yellow with random player, and perhaps an empty clue with someone I know.


edit: But even if there is a possibility of double discard of the same card, I would not do it with only 1 clue left, so it's still fine.

As the timing has been missed, clue 3 and W5 should be discarded.
If the opponent is very careful, W5 can be saved, too.


2 turns before:
W5 Y3 ?? Y5 Y4

if it was clear that Y3 must be saved, clue 5 is the best.

Clue 1 to Save All: (New convention)
3 clues, Clue 1, since player has no 1's, says to Save All cards.
2 clues, player clues back to you (maybe for a discard)
1 clue, clue Y, save Y(4) save Y(3) discardable 4Y
Player looks at hand and realizes he can discard the 4Y !

Unconventional Discard:
3 clues, Discard 4R = Discarding a clued card indicates trouble ahead, you draw fresh and pray
4 clues, player clues back to you
3 clues, clue Y, save Y(4) save Y(3) discard 4Y (as above)

It is worse than discarding 3rd one, because it normally means "Your 4 is red."
There is still risk of fuse, too.

Discarding is not bad idea. Chance of draw playable card is 12/28.
How about discarding newest? "You should discard same place."

However, risk of more critical situation is 4/27(Y2 B2 B3 W4).
