Which is why it took everyone so long to guess it, I suppose.

You are correct - tag, you're it.

Final Score:
Teatime: 225
VogonGirl: 110
Lewot:  15

(score corrected since I mistakenly thought an incorrect was -10 instead of -5)

I would have never guessed that (not without more letters anyway ::)).  Hooray for Teatime for getting right! :D  I'll just guess and i for this one.

E

BTW - I think it is +10 for each correct, -5 for each wrong, and the correct ones multiply but the number that are present.  This would give VogonGirl 20 points for the two Is.  At least that seems to be the way she scored it when she ran it (also the way I did it because I copied her).  Perhaps she can confirm this interpretation of the rules.

Oops. I knew I'd get the scoring wrong.

"I _'_  / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ /  _ _ _ _   /_ _ _ _  / _ _ _ _ e  / _ e i _ _  / _ _ _ _ _ e _  / _ _ _ _."

Right: I, E

(P is the 42nd letter in the alphabet, if you loop it around.)
