This is a variation of LINGO and follows all LINGO Rules

The game is similar to a before-and-after on Wheel of Fortune

Always use three words.

The middle word must be strongly associated to words 1 and 3; words 1 and 3 have no link to each other

Supply only the first letter of the first word

Examples:

D - - - ** - - - - - - ** - - - - -
D I S K ** J O C K E Y ** S I L K S

DISK JOCKEY
JOCKEY SILKS

E - - - - - - ** - - - - ** - - - - - (Author starts)
E X H A U S T ** P I P E ** O R G A N (Desired phrase)

Correct Letters are grouped together under the three-word phrase. To be a "correct" letter, it must appear in the word. Example:

Guess is... E X P E R T S ** S O N G ** T I T L E

Author displays E X - - - - - ** - - - - ** - - - - -

*T, S ; * ; * (Separate the correctly-guessed letters into the words where they belong. Use a semicolon (;) as a delimiter between words.

The player got the T and S in word 1 but in the wrong place. The "O," "N" and "G" of "SONG" do not count toward "ORGAN" because they appear in word 2. The "E" and "I" in TITLE do not appear for "PIPE" because they are in word 3.

WINNER = AUTHOR
The winner authors a new game. Put this game into your Favorites so it doesn't fall off the chart into Dante's Game Inferno. If you guess, you must be willing to be an author and refresh the guesses until someone else wins.

INACTIVE GAME:
After this game has been inactive for 24 hours, any author wannabe can announce his/her authoring intention by stating, "pick a number from 00 to 59," then he/she picks a number. Allow some time for others to pick numbers. After an hour or two, the first author wannabe returns and does a "spin to win." The seconds [HH:MM:SS] of that post determines who starts. The person guessing closest to the actual second starts.

Play the other LINGO Games to get a "feel" for this one if you are still confused.

Let's Play!
