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!

They do get upset, especially when the young 'uns don't wipe their feet first.

I've sometimes conjectured about whether momma marsupials get upset on rainy and windy days when their joeys have to play inside. :-)

Dear Fellow GasBuddys:

One of our longstanding GB friends has passed away. Howard, from St. Louis, died yesterday morning after a brief battle with a fast-spreading deadly form of cancer.

Howard was a retired machinist, a "meat and taters" kinda guy, and one of the nicest people you would ever want to know. A faithful GasBuddy for nearly 13 years, he had amassed over 4.5 million points and was in the top 50 of the overall rankings.

Please go to the memorial thread that author MidnightSun set up on January 7, 2015 entitled "In Memory of Howard". Below is the URL for the site, but I forgot how to create a link using it. His widow Mrs Howard would love to hear from you.

Rest in peace my friend.
