This is my obvious ripoff of a popular TV game show.
Each player will have 2 plays per turn.
The FIRST HALF of your turn can be either a guess at a letter or a try at solving the puzzle.
The SECOND HALF of your turn (if you didn't attempt to solve in the first half) must be an attempt to solve.
Players lose their turns when they:

• guess an incorrect letter or a letter already guessed;

• make an incorrect guess at a solution;

• take too long to make their next move;

• Pass to the next player.

Once your turn is over, you go to the end of the line and must wait for your turn to come around again.

If a player passes and you are next in line - go ahead and post, you do not need to wait until the player's deadline occurs.

On your first turn in a game, you may only guess a consonant. On your second turn or thereafter, you may guess a consonant or a vowel... The use of search engines of any kind is strictly prohibited.

If you want to play, simply post that you're in. The game will be limited to five (5) players. Please join the game during the FIRST round. The player next in line at the end of the game gets the first shot at the new game. A new order of play for that game will form as members line up...

Please do not ruin the game for others by guessing or solving out of turn. Spectators are welcome to post, just not letters or guesses or hints.

Your patience will be needed for this game because after each guess, I must update the board. It is also possible that players may lose their turns due to them and me not having a matching on-line schedule. That will just have to be the way it goes. I will try to make reasonable deadlines for play.

Each player will get a deadline that hopefully matches when they are usually on the Forum and also which allows for me to get some sleep, eat, do some work and play a bit of guitar.

I'll solve...and, if I thought about it until the deadline, I'd probably get it. But, new dead line, and I guess Sergio is after me.

OK...here goes...

"It's not the teat- it's the trap"

You can interpret that anyway you want. :laugh:

Alan - Sergio's "N"s didn't help as much as you thought they would, did they? I thought about your phrase, even started to use it, but the first guess of "T" and "N" would have given the whole thing away...

docbennett
03-05-2013, 06:24 AM
"H" please

rugerpc
03-05-2013, 07:43 AM
"H" please


There are two "H"s. You may solve or pass to Sergio...

Can't I buy a vowell?? :p


I'll try another one that doesn't make any sense, and hope that it will leave the door open to my fellow players to solve.

"It's not the tint, it's the talk"

Makes no sense, but WTF who cares! :p

http://i1073.photobucket.com/albums/w382/rugerpc/Games/buzz_zpsa7c58962.jpg nope, that's not it....

You could have had a vowel instead of your "H" since it was your second time through, but you only get to guess one letter per turn.

Play passes to Sergio...

May I buy a vowel? If so may I have an "I" please?

Looks like Andy is missing in action.

Play passes to Alan...

Okay - I'll go for an L.

rugerpc
03-07-2013, 08:28 AM
Okay - I'll go for an L.

There is one "L". I anticipate that this will be useful - especially when I say, "The rest of the letters are vowels."

You may solve or pass to Bennett.

alantig
03-07-2013, 12:35 PM
The L was. Not sure if the vowels thing was more helpful or not, but until this guess, I was really flailing for the last word. And still may be...

It's not the tint - it's the tool
