icon X Y Z (+2)  
X Y Z is a game me and my girlfriend came up with. It consists of decoding what words the unknowns stand for. If I have chosen the word “car park” I can say sentences like:

A car park is a place for cars, but it isn’t really a park. Or at least you wouldn’t say stuff like “oh, what a lovely park!” if you saw one.

I wouldn’t say this, since this would give away my chosen word. I would instead say:

A X Y is a place for Xs, but it isn’t really a Y. Or at least you wouldn’t say stuff like “oh, what a lovely Y!” if you saw one.

And you can also say thing like:

A cart and a car have certain things in common. You could cart a car, or a car could drag a cart. Both are used for transporting stuff. Most people would be quite displeased if you carved in their car.

This would translate to:

A Xt and a X have certain things in common. You could Xt a X, or a X could drag a Xt. Both are used for transporting stuff. Most people would be quite displeased if you Xved in their X.


An example puzzle: I’m thinking of the word X Y Z. Click the progressing hints in the secret text. I doubt anyone will need more hints since some of the later hints are quite easy.
