A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

I agree with Damia, mind you I should also point out, that I will probably be the first to mess it up ;o)

Looking forward to your new puzzle, Stevie!

I will be out of town tomorrow through Sunday and need to email someone solutions to 26 Letters and Word Square if they are not solved by tonight.

Joy, if no one else has volunteered, then you can send the solution(s) to Gerdje and/or myself

Thank you, Stevie. You and Wondering kindly finished them today, so no need to email.

Substitution, Insertion and Reduction (SIR) has been posted now - Have fun with it!

We'll let it run for a couple of weeks or so, then look to see about tidying up and clarifying the rules and header layout. At that time, we'll also see about writing the bit for Guidance as well.

If anyone has any questions, comments, suggestions, etc about this game, then please speak up, as this is the best way to improve things

Short and unpronouncable ... and proud of it!!!

suggestion: I'd take out the variant of giving clues first. I think we have enough games already where this is relevant to the game. I'd focus SIR on the main idea.

Another comment on SIR:

Eeva made the comment that the puzzles seems simple. So maybe we van suggest that in the beginning only complete guesses can be made?

Please tell us what you think about this post and the previous one.


Eeva - 09:00am Oct 23, 2004 PST(#278 of 1096)

I agree with Gerdje, the 'giving the clues' first is not necessary. Also, we could try 'The complete guesses'- thing although it may be quite difficult... also we could try giving the clues in a random order?

If we choose 'the complete guesses' should the host acknowledge the words which are correct although the whole solution isn't?


rb2112br - 10:38am Oct 23, 2004 PST(#279 of 1096)

The "complete guesses" should be whichever words are left to be solved. The host should acknowledge the words that are correct. It would take forever for someone to get all of them right on the same guess without knowing if any of the previous guesses were partially right.

in puzzles like Before and After it is also encouraged to have complete guesses at first, but if one part of the guess is correct it is still acknowledged. So I guess it should be the same here.

well, that sounds good to me!

Any comments on Eeva's idea to have the words in random order?

If they are in correct order, the number of words you can make is more limited. If they are in random order, there's more options and thus the puzzle can be more difficult.
