QUESTION FOR AN EDITOR RE WPS

if you set a WP (either a competition or a regular one), is there any way that you can control the order in which the phrases come up -- or that if person A gets phrase one they dont get phrase 2 etc etc.?
The only reason I ask is that it is not too hard to imagine a 'mystery puzzle' where some of the clues give away information about the mystery -- so that ideally you'd want them to come as the last phrases in the set.

My editor has told me they are totally randomized, so I think the answer is "no". I think that may be one reason why some WPs seem so easy for some folks and so hard for others, because they get they "Oh I get it" phrase first.

Barry - There is no way to control the order. They are 10 totally randomized phrases, so that each player gets 5; any 5 in any order.

I'm looking forward to your next one!

Yeah - that's where I look at it at times and get to one and think "wow if I had that one first, it wouldn't have taken me 99 moves to get it figured out" --- I rarely get the "gimme" first...
