Okay, 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)

Additionally...

1. You have the right to remain silent.

2. Anything you say can but probably won't be used against you in this forum.

3. You have the right to talk to your dog before answering any questions.

4. You have the right to have your dog present during the questioning.

5. If you do not have dog, your local shelter will provide one at minimal cost, before or during questioning, if you desire.

6. Do you and your dog understand these rights?

That said, here goes:

Act fast folks!!!

Once again, Karen the Moderator, acts swiftly and nearly decifers the puzzle. Karen only missed by one word. She's like a human Enigma Machine!

Karen also pointed out an error in my letter placement for the "Quotee". I have corrected it in each posting. Sorry for any confusion. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/rolleyes.gif
