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!!!

Ah yes. Critic does the spadework and finds my word.

Q: What did one shark at the bar say to the other.
A: "Want to go out for a P H O C A ?"

or maybe...

"I'll have a P H O C A on the rocks."

This is weird. I'm sure I posted the scoring for CLEFT and FRANK, but now I don't see it on this thread.

_ _ _ _ _ [5 letter elimination]

S W E A T - 1 Critic breaks a S W E A T coming up with the first guess.
T A N G Y - 1 Frank gets one looking for a tasty treat.
----------------
C A N D Y - 2 SandOwl gets one step closer
----------------
P A C K S - 3 Naked Driver ups the ante by one.
----------------
C R A M P - 3 Critic knocks out a couple more letters... by inference.
----------------
C L E F T - 1 Frank gets one caught in his C L E F T
F R A N K - 1 SandOwl wants to be F R A N K, buy there is only ONE.
P O A C H - 5 Critic makes the right inferences, and finds all the letters. Now it's ANAGRAM TIME.

P O R N O is the only word that fits. However, it is not acceptable, due to the fact that the "O" appears twice.
