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)

I have a couple of additional rules/notes:

9. You must forgive Smilla's misanthropy in advance. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/wink.gif
10. I changed one of the words from the source, as it had an archaic format and I didn't want that to scare people into not submitting guesses.

I'm afraid you get only one letter at a time, BoxerLover, and then you have to wait for someone else to go before you can guess again. So what'll it be, Gs, Ds or Os?

We have a winner--Karen Israel! She guessed correctly the inscription on the monument for Lord Byron's Newfoundland dog:

"The poor dog, in life the firmest friend,
The first to welcome, foremost to defend,
Whose honest heart is still the master's own,
Who labors, fights, lives, breathes for him alone,
Unhonored falls, unnoticed all his worth,
Denied in heaven the soul he held on earth,
While man, vain insect hopes to be forgiven,
And claims himself a sole exclusive heaven."

Not too cheery, I know...but I liked it anyway!

Congratulations, Karen! Care to do the next one, or is your schedule still hectic?
