Are you ready for a new puzzle? Enjoy! :)

To newcomers: Read the rules before you join, please!

Puzzle 194

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. (see also rule #9)

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 phrase, 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.

9. Only 5 guesses allowed in total until the host updates the puzzle. Any guess after 5, before the next update, won't be counted as a guess. And as always, someone else has to guess a letter before you can guess another letter.

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:

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

Letters to guess:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

I'll be updating tomorrow midday GMT

Why not move these puzzles to General? Less and less people are playing these anymore (and always the same people) many don't know that puzzles are played at pet general. And if you put it to general, it would be okay to cover other quotes too than animal quotes.... Just a suggestion.

Good luck to all who participate! :)

Welcome Koxka, Fuzzy and Delidog! :) Fuzzy is leading! :D

I don't know what you think about Niina's suggestion? I must admit I've been thinking the same - but if we're sticking to only animal quotes, I think we should let it stay in Pet General.

Also, if you participate in this game, I suppose the point is to try an win - and if/when you do, you should be prepared to host the next!

If anyone find it difficult to set one up, PM me and I'll help. :)
