PostSubject: Letterheads   Sun Mar 20, 2011 6:26 am

First topic message reminder :

I came up with this Forum Game a while ago when playing with Yahtzee! Words dice, and I've been spending the last month refining all the rules. Now, I want to see if it can actually work. So why don't we all try it together? The game's called Letterheads and is basically an evolution to my Scrabble game on PWO Forums, that was popular but short-lived.

Here's the play. Every day the leading player (myself for the first game and in case of dispute) posts nine letters, chosen at random. Other players can use the nine letters to make up to three words of between two and seven letters in length. The important rule is that you cannot use the same letter tile for more than one word - otherwise, both words are disqualified.

Once you have created your words, you must post them in the exact order you wish to play them. You are not required to play three words - one or two is fine as well - so think about what is the best strategy for your play. You then score the words. Scoring is the same as in Scrabble, as in each letter is worth an amount of points based on the difficulty to use that letter - so like this:

1 point: Every other letter Arrow 2 points: D, G Arrow 3 points: B, C, M, P Arrow 4 points: F, H, V, W, Y
Arrow 5 points: K Arrow 8 points: J, X Arrow 10 points: Q, Z

Here's the catch though! If you have successfully created three words, the third word scores double. This is why the order you post them in is important. Since making the third word shortens the amount of letters you have left for the others though, you have to think wisely whether to try it or not.

Score each word individually, using the above rules; and at the end, add it up to make your total for the day. At the end of the day, the player with the highest score wins that day, and can post the nine letters to use for our next game. This continues for each game we play. The person who wins the most games each month wins the title of "Master Letterhead" for the next month. And that's basically the entire game in a nutshell.

Oh wait! I forgot to mention the two crucial rules! Okay, not only do all your words have to not repeat any letter tile, but you must also use all nine tiles in total with your words. If you fail to do so, the value of the tiles you have left over is deducted from your score! However, if you succeed, you can add a further ten points. So think carefully about what's the best play - the longest words may not be the best! And finally, all words must be findable in an officially recognised British or American English dictionary (in case of dispute you may be asked to find a definition to prove the word's validity). Words that are invalid are not scored. I'll act as the adjudicator in event of any words being questioned - if I'm not here immediately, feel free to PM me.

So what do you guys think? Shall we try this game out together?

When I saw that post from RedHerring I had actually hoped the advice would be taken - which was the reason I hadn't stepped in to end this round earlier. Obviously it wasn't, which is why this game died.

I was looking through the Forum Games right now because I was considering making another word-based game and wanted to see if it had been done yet, and I just rediscovered this thread. So I'm going to score everyone myself now to bring the ongoing round to a close, so we can start over and bring this game back to life if people want. Here we go...

All the scores have been added up, and from worst to best, the results were:

Pyro - 3 Points
Memieko - 7 Points
Choco - 13 Points
But the winner for this round is MicahelN with 17 Points!

MicahelN can post the next nine letters for us to play with; if he hasn't within 48 hours though I'll just choose them.

By the way, I ranted earlier today about my laptop being useless. To give an example of just how useless (if anyone cares), I had to restart it FIVE TIMES to finish this very post! I think the cooling system in it is bust and it's overheating easily in this summer weather. Don't have money to replace it though.

I think you need to check the rules o_O
You try to see what words you can make with the letters given, which are the last ones Micahel posted. You try to use all the letters and can make up to three at least 2 letter words, bla bla just read the rules Smile
