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 puzzle, 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.

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:

-------- ----- -- ---------- --------. --- -- ----- -- -------
-- ---------- --- ---- -- --- -----? ~ ----- -------

Good luck !!!

U, please :)

Am I the only one who find it difficult to see the yellow writing? If not, can you make it a darker color momoffuzzyfaces? Or is it only until Easter is over? LOL!:D

I must be colorblind! Do you also see the normal smiling smiley as purple? I see it as yellow. I should see an optician anyway! :rolleyes: I'll check on the other machine later and see if it's the same there.

B, this time, please.
Actually, the color is deepviolet. That color and darkviolet are becoming my two favorite colors. It's springtime and I feel colorful. The smilies can't have the color changed. I tried it and locked up my computer.:)

L, please :)

Well, on the PC the color is purple. Wonder why it's yellow on the Mac. Something new to learn here! :rolleyes:

By the way, the color darkviolet WAS darkviolet - also on the Mac.

G, this time, please.
Hi, Randi, deepviolet and darkviolet are just the names used to get those colors. They look sort of purple to me too. They probably look different to everyone.:)

H for me, please :)

momoffuzzyfaces! Yes, I'm sure you're right, I just don't understand why this colour is different on the Mac and the PC. Also on the Mac, the names of the colours show on the list, but on the PC, the names AND the colours show on that same list. It's probably something to do with the settings on the Mac. It should be a much more advanced machine. Oh well, we'll sort it out when my husband gets out of bed, (flu) it's his Mac.
