View Full Version : Puzzle 154 - Mystery!

Time to play guess the animal. Solve the clues to guess the animal. Both must be solved to win.
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. Once you guess a letter, you must wait for another player to guess one before you may guess again.

4. One point will be awarded for each correct consonent, 2 points for each correct vowel.

5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.

6. If you wish to guess the phrase and animal, 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 the solution 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 clues and the animal 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 you puzzle play to the member with the next highest points.)

Ready? Here are your clues:

--------- - -- ------- --- -- ---- ----.

- ---- --- ----- -- ---- --- - ------.

--- ---- -- --- ---- -- -- ---- ---- - --- ----- -- -----.

------------- --- -- ----- ----- ----.

---- -- -- ----- -- --- - ---- -- -- -- ---.

-- ----- --- -- -; - ---- -- --- ---.

What animal am I?


Good luck!

Luckies4me has correctly guessed the clues and the animal and is awarded the honor of posting the next puzzle. Should Luckies4me decline the honor, it would pass to Randi.
Here is the puzzle:

Sometimes I am admired for my long legs.

I have been known to work for a living.

The feel of the wind in my hair when I run makes me happy.

Superstitions say my shoes bring luck.

Look at my teeth to get a clue as to my age.

No house pet am I; I like my own pad.

I am a horse.

Randi: 58 points total
Casper & Kitty: 56 points total
Cincy's Mom: 49 points total
Ann: 43 points total
Luckies4me: 21 points total

Nice game everyone!!!!
