PostSubject: Hangman!   Thu Aug 19, 2010 3:00 pm

And now, it's time for everyone's favorite word game with macabre undertones, Hangman! Very Happy

Everyone should know how to play this game, but just in case you don't: Whoever starts the round picks a word, phrase, name or whatever. Only the letters in the word or phrase may be hidden; any numbers, spaces or punctuation marks in the answer must be revealed before the current game begins. So "Wolf 359" would appear as "____ 359" and "Who's the Boss?" would appear as "___'_ ___ ____?".

Everyone else then takes turns (or at least, no one can toss out two guesses in a row) picking one of the 26 letters from the alphabet.









Star Wars Character:

___-___ _____

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ



If the letter guessed appears anywhere in the answer, then any instances of that letter in the puzzle are revealed.









Star Wars Character:

_A_-_A_ _____

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ



But if the letter is a complete miss--with no instances of that letter in the word or phrase--then another piece of the gallows and hangman is added.







╩═════

Star Wars Character:

_A_-_A_ _____

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ


After ten misses, the game ends without a winner, and the present game's host goes on to create the puzzle for the next round.

╔═══╤
───
───O
──./║\
──./ \

╩═════

Star Wars Character:

JA_-JA_ _INKS

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ



(It's okay. Jar-Jar Binks deserves to swing by his neck anyway. Razz )

Score is kept based on the number of letters in the puzzle revealed, including duplicate instances. So guessing "E" and uncovering four E's in the puzzle would be worth four points. If the puzzle is successfully completed, whoever has the highest score goes on to create the next puzzle.

╔═══╤
───
───O

╩═════

Sport:

JAI-ALAI

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Wraith: 3
Jazman: 2
SEAMUS: 2
GD: 0


(Apologies for using black dashes for the spacing; this site's text editor doesn't do multiple spaces for some reason. Sad )

For the sake of simplicity, you can just copy-paste the pieces of the Hangman from here:


Gallows Platform (1 miss):

 ╔═══╤
 ║[color=black]───[/color]│
 ║[color=black]───[/color]O
 ║[color=black]──.[/color]/║\

Hangman's Right Leg (9 misses):
Code:
 ╔═══╤
 ║[color=black]───[/color]│
 ║[color=black]───[/color]O
 ║[color=black]──.[/color]/║\
 ║[color=black]──.[/color]/
 ║
 ╩═════

Hangman's Left Leg (10 misses/Game Over):
Code:
 ╔═══╤
 ║[color=black]───[/color]│
 ║[color=black]───[/color]O
 ║[color=black]──.[/color]/║\
 ║[color=black]──.[/color]/ \
 ║
 ╩═════

And don't forget the category; if the games start getting too easy, we can always make the game harder by taking the categories away. Wink

I'll start. Get ready to guess stuff! Very Happy

Why NO, Ainsley! There is no X in this round's answer! Bzzzzt! Razz

I'd like to thank you for your guess involving the letter S. And the executioner would like to thank you for helping him construct his gallows, so that the Hangman Guy can be properly executed for his horrible crimes of anorexia and loitering. Or something. The condemned probably dunked a puppy's head in the toilet, too. He deserves not our sympathy. Very Happy

Like that. Letter 6 of 8. Smile

Sheesh, man...give somebody else a turn! Because if you take seven more guesses in a row, oops them all and get Mr. Skinny hanged, you're going to look really, really bad with no one else to blame it on.... Razz

The executioner curses you for impeding his progress! Do you hear that guttoral bellow carried in the wind? That's him. Cursing you. Or it could be an enraged grizzly bear mauling a pack of Canadian hikers; it's hard to tell the difference. Razz

Hey, SEAMUS. You know how you wanted to name Corwin's ship The Empty Gallows? Two more misses out of you guys and this gallows ain't gonna be empty no more. You're up. Guess wisely. Twisted Evil

Of course, if GD or Wraith or Jazman or one of those fifty-billion second-stringer schmoes who only post on here, like, once a year felt like hazarding a guess, I certainly wouldn't object.... Razz

Or, if you need spaces between the dashes:

_ _ N _ _ A I _

"So Ainsley," you ask, "what happens if we try to solve the puzzle?"

If you guess correctly (like guessing that "SUPER _ _ _" is "SUPERMAN" and it is indeed "Superman"), then you get a point for every letter that you knock out; the next round still goes to whomever has the highest score, but solving the puzzle at the right time can give your score a much-needed boost to help that happen.

But if you guess wrong (like if you guess that "SUPER _ _ _" is "SUPERMAN" when it's actually "SUPERBOY"), then you fail forever...which is to say that you not only whiff your guess but lose the puzzle and forfeit the rest of that round as well, and you can't guess anymore until the next puzzle begins.

So, you know, make sure you're absolutely certain--or in one hell of a gambling mood--before you try to solve the puzzle. You wouldn't want your children to label you a failure, would you? Laughing
