We play this on the Rottweiler Discussion Forums. You guys want to try it? Well, here goes...

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 phrase, send it to my email, [email protected] 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, your 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 point total)

Here's the puzzle:

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

10-18-2000, 02:54 PM
Come on rottie, the suspense is killing me (who said good?!)!
Can I suggest a new rule? No new requests for letters until the previous one is posted, it would add extra frustration and competition!

10-18-2000, 03:29 PM
Sorry everyone to keep you waiting! Does anybody have an opposition to carrie's new rule (No new requests for letters until the previous one is posted)? If not we'll add it in, starting the next game http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

lhg0962, M was already taken by carrie http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

There are 22 "A"s, 7 "M"s, 10 "N"s, 4 "W"s, 15 "H"s http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/eek.gif

Can I have an O please?

10-18-2000, 05:57 PM
I agree, We should all take turns to
be fair.
So Rottie that means you need to let us
know who can post a letter next. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

Can I have an I please.

I think the fair way to play this game
for the next time,
is for everybody to take a turn in order.
Rottie your game so your rules. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

Hey Rottie- I sent you an Email- I think I got it!!! 1129a Oct 19......Karen

Do ya feel a little like Vanna White yet?

10-19-2000, 11:38 AM
We have a winner!!! Congratulations to Su, who was the first to correctly solve the puzzle as

More puppies are purchased at Christmas than at any other time of year. In most areas of the country, however, the winter months are the least convenient to add a puppy to the family because the weather overhead as well as underfoot makes the chore of housebreaking difficult.
