WORD PUZZLES

Interestingly enough, I am hooked on word puzzles and thoroughly enjoy them twice daily (most of the time). A thought though, since the clues and or titles are getting a tad far fetched, why not just do 2 puzzles a day, with no theme. A bit harder? Maybe!!! but still would be fun - just remember the good old days of hangman!

I like the topics (not all of them, but most) and I like to think about possible answers before starting. I'd miss the clever topics if they were abolished. However, I do think that a mystery puzzle (where one would then guess the theme after completion) would be very fun. And an occasional "potpourri" puzzle would be interesting.

Without a topic - people couldn't do their hours of research before they take the puzzle - do you want a theme once you start doing them though? - or just make them random - they could be any topic from soup to nuts???? That would make them really hard - no chance for cheaters - maybe!

Random sounds wonderful and perhaps a great idea is figure out the topic at the end - or even random. Either way would be fun and great. And why worry about cheating, as I hafve said, my only competition is me!

I found the thread with the Hangman-style request! Again, be careful what you wish for!

Now I may just plot something diabolical with a hidden theme....
Beware!

Ack, Jerryk, you've created a monster hangman!

I must admit, it's my worst showing in months. I didn't even make the Top 100 and escaped with just over 2000 points.

I just did the challenging wordpuzzle and I thought the words were in a foreign language. It was in English, wasn't it?

Believe it or not but the medium hangman was easier than the easy one - go figure!

Kudos editors and writers!!! Seriously these hangman puzzles are wonderful and great fun MORE MORE MORE in fact, even think about eliminating any clues. Thank you again it is wonderful to see thoughts acted upon.

You're welcome jerryk. I'm glad you're enjoying them - especially as it was your idea! I think I will try to do some more of these in the future for those that seem to like them and to mix things up a bit. I promise not to do 3 in a row again! They are SOOO much easier to write than a regular themed puzzle too!

While I pride myself on having a fairly large vocabulary, I knew none, let me repeat that, none of the hard words. Still, though, it was fun. Treacherous, but fun.

In my hard hangman I knew one of the words and had heard of three, but the last one was so bizarre I felt like I was playing the alphabet-soup-random-collection-of-letters game!

Afterward, I looked that one up on dictionary.com and it turns out my 13 year old son knew it! He had just studied the concept in school! I won't mention the subject since I don't want to give away any hints but sufficeth to say it is not one of my best subject areas!!

Worpuzzles were actually the whole reason I went Gold (so I could do 2 a day).
But I do hate Hangme...I mean Hangman.
I've already explained why so I won't rattle on about it again.

I'm so curious to know what the hard words were!
I only got to play the medium game and a lot of you are saying that one was actually easier than the 'easy' game...

I also went Gold for the WordPuzzles - I love them! And, I also found the Medium Hangman easier than the Easy Hangman. My biggest claim to fame on the current puzzle (Things in the Attic) is that I did better than Noncentz!! Yay!! Alice

I looked up the words afterwards in the dictionary and could not find any!! I scored better though, with the hard one - go figure!
Maybe the words were not in English afterall.
