Do you mind the term and theme 'Hangman'?

  1. Hi, it's me again!

    So, most of you probably know similar games as 'Hangman', but I'm not a backer of capital punishment, so let's call it 'Guess the Word'.

    How it works:
    You'll get a certain number of blanks, for example:
    Code:
    _ _ _ _ _ _

    Then people can guess a letter, or the word. But at this point, the word wouldn't make too much sense.
    In my forum game, everyone can only guess once each round. We'll see if we can get the words guessed before we run out of people. ;)
    Let's say Tim guesses 'E'.
    I reveal the following:
    Code:
    E _ _ _ _ E

    Tom guesses 'A'.
    That letter isn't in the word I'm thinking of, so he loses his turn and I add the letter 'A' to the list of guessed letters.
    Jelle guesses 'B', which isn't in it either.
    Sach guesses 'I'.
    I reveal the following:
    Code:
    E _ _ I _ E

    Now, Tim thinks he knows the word, but he can't guess anymore. He shouldn't spoil it, but keep it secret.
    FDNY guesses 'M'.
    I reveal the following:
    Code:
    E M _ I _ E

    Shel guesses 'EMPIRE'.
    That is correct, and the round is over.

    Prizes:
    As said, everyone can guess once. If your guess is a letter, and it's in the word, you'll receive 100 rupees after the round has ended, and be awarded 1 CP. If it isn't in the word: better luck next time.
    If your guess is a word, and it's the correct word, you'll receive 1000 rupees after the round has ended, and be awarded 5 CP.
    CP is only awarded for rounds hosted by myself.

    That should be clear enough, right?

    The current word is in the next post.

    As of April 2018, if you've guessed a letter, you may still guess the word as well. You must wait until the letter has been confirmed or denied, however.

    If you're hosting a round in this thread yourself, make sure to use a word that's included in well-regarded dictionaries, or at the least in Wiktionary. No band names/fictional characters/countries or whatever. Uncommon words are allowed, but they should not be overly obscure.

  3. Cool! Let's guess A, like in your post. :)

  4. I would never have guessed B.

  6. I usually get such replies when using people in my examples, but it's more interesting than Player A, B and C, to me. ;)
    That's not in it, like in my post! ;) Thanks for guessing!

    That is, though!
    But you aren't first. ;)

    Also, the second post got messed up again. >.> I guess I'll have to do it without fonts and colours, as else XenForo will mess it up. :p

  11. I feel like this game will need to be bumped quite a bit if I want to keep the 'one guess per person' in place. ;)

  14. Just a suggestion / thought I had: how about raising the stakes a little?

    I wouldn't mind this to be honest: if you guess a letter and you don't got the word right you need to pay 10r. If you go higher stakes and try to guess the word yet you're wrong you need to pay 100r.

    Thing is: you're putting a lot of effort and some rupees into this and I think you deserve a little back 607. I also think it would make the game a little more challenging and exciting because you're actually taking a small risk when you try to guess.

    (edit): And the amount is still nothing which a daily vote wouldn't be able to cover (/hint) ;)

    Just my 2 cents of course :)

  15. I suggest M

  16. Well, you are already taking a risk, as if you guess is wrong, you won't have another guess for a while.
    But thanks for your two cents. ;)

  18. Yes, that's it! :)

    Rupees have been awarded to everyone who guessed correctly, and AhsokaTower has been added to the CP leaderboard.

    I'm not sure when I'll start another round; I could do it now, but I think this will stay interesting for longer if I wait a little, and with the rewards given out here, it might be better for me, too. ;)
  19. My body is ready
