A, L

Lex,

I would like more incorrect guesses allowed (all 10 is my preference), and do keep putting correctly guessed letters in all places they occur in the word(s).

Jema,

I had started out with ten wrong guesses, then reducing to seven before dropping to five: the problem is that even with only five steps needed, no one has yet been hanged! cry

I am too busy at work to do anything with this now, but this evening (ie in about five hours) I will start a new revamped thread.

Meanwhile, feel free to carry on! smile

That's two hits, Jema thumbsup

The setters haven't stumped anyone with the current rules so I guess it comes down to if we want to shoot for tougher puzzles with the possibility of victorious setters or easier puzzles with the probabilty of successful solves. The five clue limit does make you contemplate your guess a bit more, knowing that there aren't many attempts to squander. I would think that if we have a run of puzzles that aren't solvable we could increase the number of guesses at that point.

I had thought if there were an "L", it would be the next to last letter, not the last. rolleyes

Contemplating, Cue. grin

With Flo's guess of "I", that leaves only one vowel unaccounted for, so that vowel will be one of my guesses. Along with those 2 vowels, there's only one other letter I can think of that would fit between the "T" and "L", so that letter will be my other guess.

O, Y

Well thought out choices. I knew that solving this one would depend on specific letters being guessed and they both were already. With those choices made, the answer is pretty obvious.

Good solve! thumbsup

That Flo is a bit of a bossy boots! lol

I am minded to try the idea of placing a guessed letter only once, so that multiple guesses of the same letter may be needed, but these could be part of a single guess (so that for instance you could guess I and I). I would meanwhile also increase the number of potential wrong guesses to nine (as good as any other ranging shot).

I will start a new thread along those lines shortly, and the fanbase can then let their feelings be known...
