    Wow. Um, I won. :) So I guess I get to mess with the rules again! :)

    Welcome to the new and improved Hangman thread.


    Rules:

    1) Anyone can join, just post your guess.

    2) The puzzle will be updated no sooner than every six hours, and no later than every twelve.

    3) The winner of this week's game will be posted no later than 0800 hrs board time on Monday, November 1. It will be their responsibility to co-ordinate the next week's game.

    4) Random e-prizes will be awarded on the whim of the game co-ordinator.

    5) Points are awarded as follows:

    5 points per instance of a correct letter guess, with the notable exception of E, L, N, R, S, and T, for which the guesser will be penalized -5 points per instance.

    25 points for a correct guess of the answer to the puzzle.

    -10 points per wrong letter guess, and -25 points per wrong answer guess, plus a limb from our lynchee.

    There have been a whack load of winners already: glad we're all enjoying this game! (Perhaps we should retitle the forum the Western Canada Hangman Forum...?)

    6) There is NO Rule 6!

    7) Have fun!


    First puzzle:


    "_ _ * _ _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ . _ _ _ _ , _ _ _ ' _ * _ _ _ _ _ , _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ .

    - _ _ _ _ _ * _ _ _ _


    Week Fourteen: Philosophy Showdown!


    First Solution: "Do your best. Then, don't worry, be happy." -Meher Baba: solved by no one because Derisa is a big gun-jumping goober. Bad bard, no biscuit!

    Second Solution: "Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content." - Helen Keller solved by Darth Haggis of Edmontooine.

    Third Solution: "I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth." - Umberto Eco solved by Indigo Jade of Edmontooine.

    Fourth Solution: "A faith is a necessity to a man. Woe to him who believes in nothing." -Victor Hugo solved by geekgirl of Edmontooine.

    And our weeks overall winner is Tendra217 of Powell River!

    NO e-prizes for you!

    Tough round you guys, but you have to work more as a team to survive the new, improved Hangman. :) It is like a game on Survivor: FanForce, where only the fittest will make it out ALIVE... ;) (Yes folks the "power" is definitely going to my head.)

    New puzzle up after my kids have been bedded down for the night. All this coding takes time, y'know. ;)

    Never one to complain, but that format is crazy and, you forgot part of his torso. Letters not on puzzle:

    I J C L V

    O
    /|\
    / equals no linching.



    Letters on puzzle

    H W S M O A

    with added Torso

    O
    /|\
    |

    FREE MR. BILL, FREE MR BILL, FREE MR. BILL!

    -- just a little too quick on that Lever, Der

    OMG. I am so embarassed. I've always thought it was five wrong answers to a lynching. Dude. SO my bad.

    Okay... I'm minus twenty-five points, I guess. New puzzle as soon as I can find one...
