Guess

Post by wowwee123 » November 10th, 2011, 8:23 am

In this game, the rules are as follows:

1. Someone picks a word, everyone else then guesses the word.

For example, I'll use a 3 letter word.. the.

2. If someone guessed the word "hat", then the response by the one with the word would be as follows:

hat 0,2 (0 for no letter in the correct place and 2 for 2 of the 3 letters are in the actual word.)

3. The first one to guess the word correctly then picks a word for everyone else to guess and so on. When it is your turn to pick a word, it's your choice to choose either a four (4), five (5) or six (6) letter word for everyone else to then guess.

It's recommended to write it down and take a few moments to make sure the guessed word receives the correct response.

(Note: No need to stick around when others are guessing your word; simply post that you'll be back in x amount of time and this will give more people a chance to guess the word too.)

Only words that are in a dictionary (for example: http://dictionary.com/) can be used.
No slang, urban-dictionary words, names or places allowed.

I'll start it off with a five letter word....

Btw, what happens if you have 2 of the same letter in a word? Do you treat them separately or as 1 letter?
