Please no chit-chat.
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.
Hmmm. My gut feeling is that it might make the puzzle too difficult to solve. Having said that, it might make it more fun. Does anyone want to try doing a puzzle like that?
I think it would be better with the letters scrambled.
You can try without scrambling for a while and decide later if you wanna make it more difficult. Or you can try with scrambling first and decide later if it's too difficult. :o)
I just posted in Ultimate Scavenger Hunt and thought I'd also post here.
The game I'm hosting has come to a complete halt - it was slow throughout the game too but at least a couple MN'ers kept trying. Now it's gathering cobwebs.
I wouldn't say anything except this has happened a couple times in the past with games. Is this game "dead" and people don't really want to play anymore?
I bring that up because the last time this happened a MN'er posted that the reason no one would answer the final question was "they don't want to answer sassi because then they would have to take over and host the game."
If that's the case again and people aren't interested in hosting ... maybe we should talk about retiring it.
It's frustrating and disheartening as a host to see a game lag .... lag .... and then come to a screeching halt.
Is this happening in other games too? Is there a way we could breathe life into these games?
I know December is a busy month and there is a MP occurring ... so things get very slow. Just ..... venting and wondering.
Tks for your feedback and patience in listening to my rant. :)
In my case it has nothing to do with not wanting to take the next round. It is pure and simple: I don't know the answer. I have no interest in Hockey (or any sports, for that matter), so I am a clueless (more-so than normal!)
I've posted a guess, but I suspect you want more information than that. As far as I am aware, you haven't opened up internet searches (if you have, I must have missed that), so without that form of reference, it won't be me solving it.
