A new game

Here is a new game, I hope it won’t sound too complicated. Everybody can participate whenever she/he wants to, but you won’t get any points and there won’t be any winners. It is a collective game where the goal for all of you is to solve my puzzles.

I have 4 clues for each of the ten puzzles, but you see, I am not in a good mood right now, so I will give you only one of the clues. You can try to solve the puzzles right away, but you are probably going to need more clues. But in order to get the rest of the clues you will have to make me feel better. And how are you going to achieve that? – by writing down some nice words: something nice I would like to see, feel, get, hear… just use your imagination.

I have made a list of 50 words and whenever you guess a word from that list, my mood counter will rise by one. (Those are general words which, I guess, would affect the mood of most of us here, but keep in mind that I am female ) When the counter reaches 10, I’ll give you another 10 clues. I’ll do the same when the counter reaches 20, and at 30 I’ll give you the final set of clues. To make this game last a little longer we will start with a rule that every person can suggest maximum 2 ”good mood” words in one day. Off course you can try to solve the puzzles as often as you like, just write down the number of the puzzle and your guess.

Here are the puzzles:

First puzzle, solved: My best friends were mice. -Cinderella
Fourth puzzle, solved: Tennis players tend to stand up when I get mentioned. -time
Fifth puzzle, solved: I don’t have any brothers, only one sister. -Lleyton Hewitt
Eighth puzzle, solved: I am in water, I am in air. - oxygen

Second puzzle: solved - koala
I am not a teddy bear.
Beware of my teeth and my claws.

Third puzzle: solved - Mona Lisa
I am a more than 500 years old woman.
I was stolen once.

Sixth puzzle:
I have a tail.
Most of the time I am very far from you.

Seventh puzzle: solved - nettle
Touch me, and you’ll regret it.
Some people eat me.

Ninth puzzle: solved - saucer
Some people would get scared if they saw me fly.
You probably have me at your home.

Tenth puzzle: solved - sun
You can’t look at me.
Sometimes I am around, sometimes I am not.

Re: A new game

Nobody wants to play or is it because it is too confusing?

Re: A new game

I understand then that we have 10 puzzles to solve. Each of them we have one clue so far.
You have made a list of 50 words that make you feel good, and we have to guess those, everytime we guess one of them we get one more clue right? i think I understood it.


Well i'll have a go at nice words, we're allowed 2 a day right?
tennis
winner

Once you've answered, i'll take guesses on some of the clues

Thanks Yas for writing down the short (and understandable ) version of the rules. Everything is like you described except one thing: I’ll be counting the number of nice words you guessed , and will give the second clue for each of the puzzles only when the counter reaches 10. (the third when it reaches 20 and the final clue when it reaches 30)

By the way, well done, tennis is a word from my list

I’m also gonna give you all an example of a puzzle. Lets say that the clues are:

1. At the beginning of my existence I always had a wire
2. I became mobile when I got older
3. I connect people
4. Sometimes I ring

Obviously the solution to this puzzle is phone

So once again in short:
1. you can try to solve any of the ten puzzles as often as you like
2. everybody can post two nice words a day in order to get more clues (those words are not necessarily tennis related)
3. this isn’t a knowledge quiz, just something to have fun with, so don’t hesitate to make wild guesses

I didn't think that you would guess this one so easily, but dog is one of the words from the list

Something else I want to say. I swear that I really have that list and that I'm not gonna cheat with any of the words.
