View Full Version : Spell the word

For this game I'll need 10 players. First ten to sign up get to play.

How to play:

I'll post a box with nine letters for example:

http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k527/dangit1234/ada04ca3.jpg

Players take turns using the letters to spell a word. Words have to be four letters or more and you must use the letter in the green box. If you post a word that doesn't use the letter in the green box, you will lose one point.

You can only post one word per post and you have to wait for four others to post before you can post again.

Scoring will be as follows - a four letter word is 4 points, a five letter word is five points etc. All the letters can be used to spell one nine letter word so the first person to get it can score nine points.

Every evening when I get home from work (I'm in Thailand so that will be Thai time) I'll tally the points and post a new one. The player with the least points is out of the game. In the event of a tie, other players will vote someone out by sending me a PM.

Once we are down to four players, there will be one more round to determine the winner.

Note: If you can't think of a word using the letters then post pass so the game doesn't get stuck due to having to wait for four others to post.

The example above: Machinery is the 9 letter word.
Other examples: year, hear, chair etc etc.

Nine more to go. I won't post again till a total of ten sign up then I'll post the list of players and send you a PM when I post the first game board. After that it'll be up to the ten players to check for the next ones. This is just to keep from reaching the 50 page mark before the game is finished.

iPad autocorrect allowed it as one word.. :) (and that's one of the pickiest autocorrects I've ever had)

I think it's one, but I might be wrong :rolleyes:

Players please 'bear' with me. Bad storm today. Electric went out 5 hours ago and still off. Told it might not get fixed till tomorrow night :-(. My iPad is almost out of battery as well :-(. I may not be able to post the next round tomorrow unless power is fixed. I also had lost Internet connection for three of those hours :-(.

Im off to bed now to try to sleep in my sweltering hot room, no power = no airconditioner for the hottest month of the year in Thailand waaaaaahhhhhh :-(

Ok I'm staying in a hotel room now so can post the new board later today. Just got a text from work saying lightning had hit a transformer box so no telling when they'll get electricity back up. I couldn't stand my hot room any longer plus when I went to have a shower I discovered there was no water as well. Now I'm all clean and sweat free :-) going to eat breakfast now, maybe sit by the hotel pool with my iPad and have a relaxing day :-)

greygull
03-31-12, 09:46 PM
Sorry to hear you had to go to a hotel, but happy for you having electricity and showers! Enjoy your relaxing day!

I wonder why the iPad allowed flyrod then? I have to make it use so many words, and it allowed that?? Oh well :)

sourlicorice2
04-02-12, 05:52 AM
Ok going through round one I'm afraid I made a mistake. Pinkster spelled the word hardly but didn't use the letter o so the updated scores are below

1. RealFarmer - 14 pts
2. Shakiba and lizardlickfan - 6 pts
4. Greygull and Pinkster - 5 pts
5. Ic3e - 4 pts

Since there haven't been many posts for the 2nd round, I'll give it another day. I'll repost the game board below here in 1 minute to make it easier. I've recorded the points so far.

I don't know but it isn't in the dictionary either so I'm pretty sure it's two words.

Ok just a few more rules to be clear I hope. Sry some of these I didn't think of when I started the game. Thanks for asking about these new rules :-)

Players take turns using the letters to spell a word. Words have to be four letters or more and you must use the letter in the green box. words can only be used once. The first person to use it gets the points. Y

You can only post one word per post and you have to wait for any posts before you can post again.

Scoring will be as follows - a four letter word is 4 points, a five letter word is five points etc. All the letters can be used to spell one nine letter word so the first person to get it can score nine points.

Every evening when I get home from work (I'm in Thailand so that will be Thai time) I'll tally the points and post a new one. The player with the least points is out of the game. In the event of a tie, other players will vote someone out by sending me a PM.

Once we are down to four players, there will be one more round to determine the winner.

Note: If you can't think of a word using the letters then post pass so the game doesn't get stuck due to having to wait for four others to post. I'm going to remove the lose 1 point if you don't use the middle word as I just keep forgetting about that one sorry :-(

Ok I'm going to tally the points and then post the next round.

sourlicorice2
04-03-12, 05:26 AM
Sry you have to wait for any FOUR post before you can post again.

sourlicorice2
04-03-12, 05:31 AM
Scores so far:

1. Realfarmer - 28
2. Lizardlickfan - 26
3. Greygull - 20
4. Pinkster - 9
5. Shakiba - 6

Sorry Shakiba that means you are out.

Now that we are down to four players this will be the last round. New rule - you may post two words at a time then wait for any four posts to post again. I'll help out by popping on now and then and posting gibberish just to help get four posts faster ;-)

FINAL ROUND STARTS NOW GOODLUCK :-)

I'll start one when I get back on the 12th but in a new thread as it won't be the same as this one. Still a word game but simpler and easier for me to keep the rules straight lol.
