The author works with a 5-letter word with no duplicate letters, and each guess will be labeled with the number of letters found in the word. It's sorta like mastermind, only because this is using common words, there isn't anything telling you the placement of the letters.

NOTE to Authors: Be careful not to have duplicate letters like the word "fence". Also, don't get cute with proper nouns, etc. Players can have a hard time with common words just as easily as quirky ones.

Here is an example game with the word "MANGE":

U L T R A - 1
N E W S Y - 2
Y E A S T - 2
S P A R K - 1
T R A M P - 2
S T O R M - 1
A L O N E - 3
N E A R S - 3

From the 4th and 8th words guessed (SPARK & NEARS) you can see that both "E" and "N" are in the word. Eliminating "K" and "P".
From the 2nd word (NEWSY), eliminate the letters "S", "W", and "Y".
From the 3rd and 4th words (YEAST & SPARK), either "A" or "T" and "A" or "R" is correct. Since both "R" and "T" cannot be correct from the first word (ULTRA), then "A" must be correct, and you can eliminate "L", "R", "T", "U".
From the 5th word (TRAMP), "M" must be correct also, and from the 6th word (STORM) eliminate the "O".
So, we have "A","E","M",and "N" and available are "B C D F G H I J Q V X Z
".

E N A C T - 3 Eliminated the "C".
A M E N D - 4 Eliminated the "D".
M A N E H - 4 Eliminated the "H".
F L A M E - 3 Eliminated the "F".
M A N G E - Answer found!!!

Okay, let's play!!!

I was thinking of using a (x) for invalid entries.

Anyhow, Owl can handle the next one as the winner of this one.

I like the new format, but I still don't like invalid words having (0) next to them - it appears as if all their letters are eliminated. Could we please use (-) to show the word was not scored? Just another suggestion to put in your

How do you like this format with the numbers first?
 
(1) T R I E S - revo tries for one.
(2) P A I N S - frank found two.
(0) Q U E Y   - fun comes up a letter short. (void)
(0) V A U L T - critic eliminates five with empty vault.
(0) P E N C E - no pence for kitty. (void)
(3) B R O W N - and three for frank.
(1) P R A W N - revo has one prawn.
(1) C R O W S - Fun has one crow.
(2) K N O W S - critic knows two.
(3) B R I N G - Owl brings three.

OK, revised per Owl.
