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'm at a loss, too. I thought I was doing good to find the five letters, which was tough. Without a clue as to where any of the letters are placed, I haven't a clue. There are 120 possible combinations of those 5 letters, and I was hard pressed to identify even one.

To all: I have double and triple-checked the scoring. There are no errors. My word is not common and the letters cannot be re-arranged to form any other 5-letter word.

Critic, I'm caught in a logic loop that is preventing me from coming to a solution on the letters in your word. Can you please verify all scoring on this game?

In the meantime, I'll guess
