catrub Here we go with another variation on the theme. Please read the instructions carefully as these are not the usual rules of the traditional game, nor are they the same as those on the previous thread: they may also be updated and refined in this post as we go. Hopefully everything is reasonably clear, but please do not hesitate to ask for help or clarification.

The rules

(i) The setter puts up the outline of a word or a short well-known expression in blank (so that all the other players know are the numbers of words and of letters in each word) together with an indication of the nature or category of the word/expression. An 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: it is entirely up to the setter.

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

(iii) The setter enters into the outline any correctly guessed first or last letter of a word. Any other correctly guessed letter is placed into the letter bank and will only be added to the outline if someone guesses its correct position. If a letter occurs more than once, a single correct guess will result in enough for all occurrences being placed in the letter bank (except insofar as any are placed directly into the outline as the first or last letter of a word).

(iv) Meanwhile the setter also starts to add the hanged person to the gallows with one step for each incorrectly guessed letter or position of letter. Seven steps are needed to complete the victim (head, body, right leg, left leg, right arm, left arm, face).

(v) Someone posts another two (or more) letter guesses and/or a guess at the position in the outline of at least one letter from the letter bank, and so on. There is nothing to prevent the same person from posting consecutive guesses, or even hogging an entire game, but please have some consideration for other addicts! snicker

(vi) Players are allowed to try to guess individual words of an answer consisting of more than one word. However, such a guess will be treated as separate letter or position guesses for each blank space in the word.

(vii) Ideally, you should probably wait for the setter to let you know whether a previous guess is correct before guessing again, but it may work okay if there are two or three guesses oustanding at one time. However, tread carefully if only a couple of steps remain before the picture is complete! scared

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

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

Note for setters on creating the picture of the gallows and hanged person

The picture steps (kindly contributed by Pandora) are in a photobucket album on the internet which are accessed by using one of the urls (web addresses) below, and here's how you do it:

In the full reply screen one of the option buttons across the top is "enter an image" which then offers you a choice of various image positions to insert followed by a dialogue box for a url.

You just copy and paste the url you need, deleting and replacing as you go through the game and want to change the picture.

I have been using the position "non-floating image" and have not fully understand the difference between that and the varous "floating image" options. Feel free to experiment as it's just a bit of fun!

Here's one that I think/hope will be a relatively easy one to start us off under the new rules:

S L A V E * T O * T H E * R H Y T H M
(4 words 5,2,3,5) music title - guessed by Haroula


Letter bank (correctly guessed letters waiting for someone to guess their positions in the outline): A
Wrongly guessed letters: BDC
Wrongly guessed answers: Dance to the Rhythm
Wrongly guessed positions for correct letters:

Wrong guesses remaining: 2

Lex, you forgot to place the A.

My choices are B, T, H.

Hi Curly: two out of three correct, but the A doesn't get beyond the letter bank yet (under the new rules).

Three good contributions to the letter bank from someone who obviously knows the answer!

Actually, I should have entered R and M as first and last letters of the last word! oops

Correct guesses of two positions of letters from the bank!

Actually, I should haver entered those in the outline when MxM guessed them: apologies for not following my own rules... blush

I think that you are making the same mistake as Flo: that is not the title! devil

However, I will treat it a correct guess of the position of Y in the final word. wink
