That's the algorithm in a nutshell. I liked the idea of the parity test to pick the shift point. I didn't really think about the possibility that the vowels might cause complications (or perhaps "simplifications" would be a better term :lol: ) since they were all odd. :wacko:

It seemed like it would be a little stronger than your first algorithm to use a variable number for adding or subtracting the letters for each character, so I decided to do a vowel count.

Thanks, it was fun to do that!
At the time my best guess was you started from the 1st letter if it was a consonant, otherwise take the last consonant. So it was pretty much dumb luck that it came out right. It's ironic that the hardest parts of the last 2 games were easily beaten by guessing. I suppose that's always a danger with one-off operations.
Good games nevertheless!

Shame we haven't more people playing. Is there anybody playing this silently? Own up, I'd just like to know.

I have a couple of ideas brewing now, so I could host the next if you want. Be warned though, I'm cranking up the difficulty level this time.

I just sunk my half-brewed idea, so I'm free :)
