I see that Jema is doing an excellent job as my henchwoman - thanks!
However we still haven't succeeded in hanging anyone yet and I am wondering about possibly increasing the setter's chances by making each guess a minimum of three letters: depending upon anyone else's thoughts, I might try that later.
The only other alternative occurring to me at present would be to go back to a maximum of five wrong guesses, with the pairs of limbs each being a single step.
Please feel free to air your ideas as well as continuing to enjoy the game.
