Before I begin with the rules, which I'm sure you're all interested in, I will mention that I have both seen a game like this before, but forget what it was called, and am not sure how it will work online, so I'm hoping the rules will fix any possible problems before they happen. Additionally, anybody can play so long as they follow the rules, and have signed up for the forum. No elitists here!

In this game, you are supposed to guess the word. That's it. At least, in the live version. The rules are as follows, and possibly explain it better.

Rules: (word creator)

1. It may be no more than 8 letters. You must say the amount of letters in the word when you create the new word. It must be a legitimate word.
2. There can be no repeat letters (smiles is not a valid word, there are two s's.)
3. When you are on the forum, check to see if there have been any guesses, and if so, post the correct number of letters. NOT letters in the correct place, simply # of correct letters.
3a. If a word is not legitimate, write some form of "no score" for it. If it is legitimate, but has 0 correct letters, score it as 0.
3b. If there is a repeated guess, you do not need to give a score for it if you don't want to. This includes words with the same exact letters! (I.E "hears" and "hares") You can give a repeated score, or not. It is up to your discretion.

(not word creator)
4. Limit guesses to three words between word creator posts, otherwise things might get messy.
4a. The guesses should follow rule number 2 as well (no multiple letters). Additionally, if the word creator says that it has X letters, you should only guess legitimate words with X letters, else you have wasted a guess.
5. If you get the word first, you become the word creator.

If more rules need to be added, they will be later. Refer to this, the first post, if that is the case.

Now, an example game (with 4 letters)

The word is "this".

Zmann guesses:

hats
bang
grub

I respond

hats-3
bang-0
grub-0

Zmann (and everyone else, so timing is important) can determine that s, t, and h are in the word, while b,a,n,g,r,u are not.

Eytanz then guesses

huts
hits
shot

I reply

huts-3
hits-4
shot-3

So they know that the word has "hits", but the order is incorrect. You must get the exact word.

This might be a fascinating game, it may fall flat. But I want to give it a try.

I have now thought of a word. It has 6 letters.

About the rules, does every guess have to be a legitimate attempt to guess the word? I assume that guesses at least have to be legitmate words, but what about guesses with double letters or that are a different length than specified.

I suppose I did fail to mention that in the rules...I apologize for the inconvenience, but there ought to be no repeated letters in the guesses either. I shall post that rule post-haste.
