Hangman: Paleo Edition

Post by schnautzr on Sat May 01, 2010 8:07 am

And now, it's time for everyone's favorite game...

HANGMAN!

LotP style...

Rules:
1. A guess may be either a letter or the complete answer, no guessing a partial answer.
2. All incorrect guesses will be docked from your score-- 1 point for missed letters, 5 points for missed words. Exception: If you duplicate someone else's guess, there is no penalty, but only if the guess has already been confirmed as correct or incorrect. All duplicate guesses PRIOR to confirmation will be docked.
3. You'll be awarded 1 point for each correct letter and ten points for completing a puzzle, whether you complete it through letter guessing or complete phrase guessing.
4. If your points are negative, they're negative. It's that simple.
5. Easy puzzles are not fun-- make it challenging or something.
6. If you win a puzzle, you are the one to post the next puzzle. That way everyone has an equal chance to get points.
7. If you get docked five points (regardless of correct guesses) during any particular puzzle, that dinosaur has killed you and you lose 5 points. If all apparently active guessers get killed, the person issuing the puzzle gets a bonus 5 points.
8. If it's not fun, stop playing. There's nothing worse than a group effort to preserve something that isn't fun. Wink

Sorry Draci, but the only one of those that was in the name was E, meaning you just lost a point.

Haha, your good at this, TT.
Then again I seem to pick animals with complicated first names but simple last names. >.<

Alright, hit us with a new one.

Wait, did we change the point rules? I thought it was +1 no matter how many of the letter was there. Not a problem to switch, but you and I better decide which way we should score. I'm fine with either way.

Err, no. Nothing was changed. The points have been managed the way they have always been managed.

Okay, so the rule is +1 per letter in the puzzle, not per guess. I'll keep that in mind as I update scores in the future....Wheel of Fortune style.

O and S

And for the record, that was a point for everyone, and puts Lasher on the scoreboard.
