catrub Here we go again folks! Naturally I have been unable to resist re-tweaking the rules... lol

Please read the instructions carefully as these are not the usual rules of the traditional game, nor are they quite the same as those on the previous thread. 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 only once any correctly guessed letter. Any repetition of a correctly guessed letter is placed into the duplicate letter bank and will only be added to the outline if someone guesses its correct position. The setter does not necessarily have to place a repeated letter in the first available space for it in the outline.

(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 duplicate 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 (which could therefore prove expensive if the guess is wrong).

(vii) Ideally, you should probably wait for the setter to let you know whether a previous guess is correct before guessing again, but it seems to 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 whole word/expression, but a wrong word/expression guess results in two steps towards the completion of the picture. evil

(ix) 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. Don't be afraid to have a go: there is plenty of help available if you have any difficulty, and you can always edit your way out of any errors.

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 (using the edit process) 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!

I think that there is still a rich seam of single word TV series to be mined, many of them with only seven letters none of which are repeated. Those can be quite tricky without any embellishment to the rules. However, longer answers are fun too, and I think that they do need an extra ingredient in the rules to prevent them being too easy to solve once repeated letters are guessed, hence the duplicate letter bank (an idea which may or may not find favour...).


T H U N D E R B O L T * A N D * L I G H T F O O T (three words 11,3,9) film - guessed by Niki

Duplicate letter bank (repeated letters awaiting placement guesses): OOTTTHLN
Wrong letter guesses: CS
Wrong placement guesses:

Steps left: 5

Two out of three, and one is a multiple.
