Following on from my recent attempt at the traditional game, here is the first attempt at a revised version which may make it more interesting and/or better suited to interactive online playing. The rules are slightly different, so please read (especially ii)! wink

(i) The setter puts up a word or a short well-known expression in blank (so that all the players know is the number of letters in each word). The expression might be for example a book, play, film or music title or the name of a famous person or character, or perhaps a proverb or saying.

(ii) Someone else posts at least two letters which he/she thinks might be in the word/expression.

(iii) The setter enters any correctly guessed letters in the appropriate positions and starts to add the hanged person to the gallows with one stroke for each incorrectly guessed letter. 5 strokes complete the victim (head, body, both legs, both arms, face) eek.

(iv) Someone else posts another two (or more) letters, and so on. There is nothing to prevent the same person posting consecutive sets of letters.

(v) At any stage anyone can try to guess the word/expression, but a wrong word/expression guess results in two strokes towards the completion of the picture scared.

(vi) The setter wins if the gallows picture is completed: otherwise the person to correctly guess the word is the winner, and hopefully then sets the next word/expression.


T H E * E A S T E R * B U N N Y (three words 3,6,5) - guessed by Curly



Letters already wrongly guessed: IO

Maximum number of wrong guesses remaining: 3

We now need a minimum of two letters for a valid entry please! wink

I will choose I for your second letter to keep things moving

Thanks Niki.

This is a work in progress, and upon further reflection I see no reason why a player should not be free to post more than two letters at a time if he/she chooses. I have therefore amended the rules to allow that.

Thanks to Bristol for two more good letters, and to Curly for the correct and topical answer! chocobunny

Is it worth continuing, and if so do you you want to have a shot?
