Here are the rules:

1. You may only guess one letter at a time.

2. After you have guessed a letter, you must wait for another player to guess a letter before you can go again.

3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn. Should you choose a letter, then receive a response from the member host, you must wait for the next member to guess a letter.

4. One point will be awarded for each correct letter, 2 points for vowels.

5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.

6. If you wish to guess the puzzle, send it to me via Pet Talk personal email. This is accessible via the 'PM' or 'Profile' buttons on any of my posts.
DO NOT post it on the forum. If you wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.

7. You must have submitted a correct letter to submit your solution. Unlike letters, if you submit a wrong solution, you are disqualified from continuing in that puzzle.

8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points wins the game.

And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle. (Should you win the game, and do not care to host the next puzzle, you may pass your puzzle play to the member with the next highest points)

Here is the puzzle:

- -- - ------ ---- ----- -- ---- --------- ------ --- ---- ---- --------- --------.
- ---- --- ---- ----- ----, ---- ----, -- ---- -- ---- -- ---. ---- ------
-- --- ---- -- ------- -- -- ---- ----. - ---- ---- ------------ --- - ----- --- ---
--- ---- ------ - ---- ------- --- ------. - ---- ------- ------------- --------- ----
------ -- ------- ---- - -- -----------. ---- -- -- --- ---- ---- ----- ----- ---- ---
--- -- --- ----. ---- -- -------- -- -- ----- - "-----". --- --- ----- ---- - --?

Available letters:

And you are right, Bridget, yah!!!!!!!!!! Ok everyone, here is the solved puzzle:

I am a rodent that comes in many different colors and with many different markings. I also can have curly hair, wavy hair, or even no hair at all. Some people do not like me because of my long tail. I have been domesticated for a while now and have become a very popular pet rodent. I make several vocalizations including loud chirps or squeeks when I am frightened. Some of us are born with large round ears set low on the head. This is referred to as being a "DUMBO". Can you guess what I am ?


I am suprised I only received one guess! Hmmm. Well you all did a wonderful job! I believe Bridget is going to host the next puzzle? if not AmberLee is the next highest scorer. ;) :D
