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!!!

_ _ _ _ _ [5 Elimination]

P U R S E (2) Critic starts us off with a pair
----------------
D U S T Y (1) FOF needs to clean up a bit
F E A R S (3) Not all of F E A R S , Hwy, only 3 of 5
----------------
B A R K S (4) FOF takes us up a notch
F R O S T (2) Frank gets icy
A L T E R (2) Critic is eliminating letters
----------------
B A L K S (3) Hwy doesn't want to go anywhere unwillingly
----------------
C R A B S (3) Critic nips off 3
A C R E S (3) FOF only finds 3 in those A C R E S
L A R K S (4) Frank finds a flight of birds, but only 4 in hand
B E A K S (3) Hwy locates the eating end of Frank's flock.
----------------
S P E A K (3) Hwy continues a trend of 3 letter words
S H A R K (4) Critic bites off 4
D A R K S (4) While FOF does it in the D A R K S
----------------
Interesting that after 14 words have been guessed, not one of the 70 letters used was the 6th most common letter in the English alphabet. Also, that 70 letters guessed only eliminated 12 out of 26 possible letters available.

Hi everyone. I've been thinking and I have to say something. I've noticed that hwy has been carrying on STILL, to this very day, leaving messages on others whiteboards, still accusing me of swearing at her, and trying to make me look like the bad one & to redeem herself. The fact that she is refusing to let this go & is continuously doing this [and thinking it is being done behind my back] has been causing me an enormous amount of stress & real life panic/anxiety attacks. I have a serious surgery coming up on the 3rd. I think it is best if I just stay off of here until it's over , because she is really upsetting me. The fact that she HAS to play the 5 or 6 games that I play just goes to show the type of person she is. She's only doing it to annoy me. I don't need the added stress. She left Colorado Papa a message talking about how I swore at here. She left Sody one, and she just continues to go on & on & on leaving them. WHY!! Let it go already?? If I wanted to swear at the smarmy p.o.s., believe me, I would have already. I just don't need this. If you could all stand by me & get her off of the games I play, it would be a great help. I just can't take it anymore. I used to love logging on & playing. I dread it now.
