welcome A slightly new twist on the old schooldays word guessing game of Hangman to torture you all! In this version the guessers start off by creating a nonsense anagram of the answer, because the setter will simply enter each correctly guessed letter (including any duplicates) into the first available space(s) in the outline. At some point, there will be enough letters to create scope for a guess at the answer by unscrambling them, or at least that is the general idea... crazy...go on, give it a try!

Please read the instructions carefully as these are not the usual rules of the traditional game. 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 letter, but not necessarily in its correct position: the letter and any repetition of it will simply be placed in the first available empty space (which might of course entirely coincidentally be its correct position).

(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 correct position in the outline of at least one of the already correctly guessed letters, 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). eek

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

(viii) Any letter appearing in its correct position (whether coincidentally or as a result of a correct position guess) will be shown in bold italic.

(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 (take your pick: I have been using the position "non-floating image") followed by a dialogue box for the 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.

If the thought of using the urls scares you, you will probably be forgiven for leaving the picture out altogether.

The urls

Step four, the left leg

Step five, the right arm

Step six, the left arm

Correct! I know this was a hit for Willie, although I prefer (and have on my iPod) Arlo Guthrie's version.

Another of those songs you may recognise without remembering the title!

Technically MxM succeeded in hanging us as my wrong guess of THE would have forfeited three steps (although two of the letters did at least belong in that word): I should have just guessed T as the first letter.

In any event, I'll set the next one, which is a book and a film in two words (3,6)

R E D * D R A G O N (guessed by Manxman)

Wrong guesses: TS

Steps remaining: 5


Just waiting and hoping... zombie

Question: When you're placing the letters, do you just start at the left and fill the entire area, even if the answer has multiple words, or do you put a correct letter within the word that it's actually supposed to be in?

Just start at the left and keep going: no need to keep letters within the correct words.

I did consider keeping letters within their word, but I think it would make the game too easy/less interesting.

Cue, fill in the correctly answered letters from the left for the letters guessed in order L, N, D, I. If any happen to fall in their correct spot, then bold and italicize it smile

I think that it could be time for a new thread, sticking with the same formula which we all seem to be enjoying. I'll set it up and MxM can post the next poser.
