Decided it was time to start this game up again as it was fun to do and fairly popular(100+ pages?)

The rules are as follows

+1 Point for guessing a letter right. Multiple points if more than 1 of that letter is in the Puzzle
-3 Points if you buy a vowel
+5(or more depending on word size) if you guess the word and get it right.
If you guess the wrong word, You lose a turn.

I'm going to not reply as often as I used to, just to try to give more people a chance to guess.

Each post will have a scoreboard update and the status of each person.

_ _ _ _ _

USED:

(Object/Action)

You should try to have a little more content per post rather than the last installment of the game had. I will do my best to be a bit more interesting rather than copy/paste.

oh god this again

I wonder if it will like, flood the IRC or something given how the previous one was.

I don't know how would posts have more content in this kind of game though. Unless there is some side-general chat, there isn't really much to discuss nor much content to have.

Maybe you could add some layer of complexity that would require more interaction besides just posting a letter.

I'm throwing an S in any case for all it's worth.

My memory is so bad I can't remember the previous thread.

Or who ran it.

Or who participated.

Or if I participated.

Or if there's a T in the puzzle.

So many questions, so many chances to answer.

Considering how dead it is now, I dont consider it problematic.

You could put the letter you are guessing with in a sentence and make it more formal.

Is there a "W" in the word?

You kind of inadvertently called me stupid there.

I'll guess haste then. Though I doubt it since that's an abstract concept and not an object but oh well.
All I can think of are things that end in -aste anyway.

So, Object/Action means the word is either a noun or a verb, right?

Well it's not like I have any other choice-- I'm going to have to start guessing random letters now. Starting with a G.

I have an even less chance of getting the word right. Even if the stars do align and I am able to guess the word, someone else is going to have guessed it correctly before me, and it's an uncomfortable truth let me tell you that.

About that chance of not getting the word right =P

Paste is correct and It's time to move onto another word(s). I got the idea to use Paste because when I was in the process of starting this thread, I was in a class where I am learning all about Microsoft Office. So I decided to use one of the common things from it.

In the toss-up of increasing or decreasing other people's perception of one, I would rather succeed when I expect failure than fail when I expect success. It's a bit of a negative hitch I have.

Hitch, hitch, H, why the hell not.
