Hangman
« on: April 05, 2012, 05:32:02 PM »
I got the idea of having hangman here from another forum I go to.  This is a simple game, just like a regular game of hangman, rules are the same as well.

Heres how it goes, a member comes up with a sentence, ex:

VogonGirl is awesome

you put in the blanks in like so:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _/ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _

The "/" is there to indecate that its a separate word.

Now guessing is fun, you can earn points, and lose them as well.
For every correct letter you say, you get +10 to your score. If you guess incorrectly, you get -5. If you solve the puzzle, you get +20 and plus +10 points for every blank you had left over.

So, lets say I guess a V, this is what will happen:

V _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I would get +10. Keeping score is like this:

VogonGirl: 10
etc: -
etc: -

Too keep track of letters used; make a right/ wrong key.
Right:
Wrong:

Now, everyone can post a letter, but its 1 per person till the member who made up the word updates their word choice. And who ever guesses the puzzle correctly, its their turn for the sentence of their choice.

I'll start:

_ _ _ _ /_ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _!

Right:
Wrong:
