I will be on for a short time this evening, just to let you know...here we go!

Attention new players! Read the rules before you join, please, and be prepared to host the next if you win!

These 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 Private message. (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 it to the member with the next highest points)


Here's the puzzle:

------ --- ---- ------- -- - -------. - ---- - --- ----- ------ ----- -------,
- ----- ----- ------ --- ---------, --- - --- ---- ----- ---- ---- -- -----.

lvpets only forwarded a guess from Randi! ;)

Grace and Randi had the same error. :(
I assume the name is considered part of the puzzle?

Gosh, I was such a hurry that I must have sent the guess to LVpets. :o

OK - I don't know if this has happened before, but Houston, we have a problem!

The website I get cat quotes from (see link http://catquotes.com/catquotes16.htm) has the author of this quote as MARIA Corelli, and the first name is listed that way on the last email of the puzzle.

Grace and Randi both put in correct puzzle guesses with the first name listed as MARIE. Grace has submitted a conflicting website with the first name listed as MARIE.

Due to this, I'm making an executive decision; Grace has opted out of hosting, but she did guess first, so at that point the puzzle should have been closed with the opportunity to host going to the highest point getter. That person would be KAREN. Karen, would you like to host, or do you want to pass it to RANDI?
In either case; the puzzle as I had it is -

"I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night." - Maria Corelli

:) Now you're going to have to find another quote site!!

Thanks for the clarification - I'm glad I won, and also glad I'm not doing another puzzle right now.

Pinot's Mom

KAREN!

Karen has agreed to host the next puzzle, and will try not to have a conflict! ;)

Thanks y'all! :D
