Although

disimilar

adjacent

characters

exist

words

with

doubles

appear

to

still

be

excluded

so...

Excluding simple doubled letters, the words must contain two adjacent consonants and two adjacent vowels. My guess is that 'doubles' is the only word allowed through?

I have a feeling that this rule is not quite specific enough, but am I on the right track ?

The consonants are irrelevant. Your getting somewhere with the vowels. Unfortunately, 'doubles' does not make it through.

EDIT: Hmm. This editor doesn't like me. Is there a way to post in columns?

I don't know what that means. Achieve will pass.

The editor has an icon (<>) on the button bar which gives you a monospaced font so that you can format text in columns.

LOL :) - The downside of the 'code' option is that it doesn't allow any formatting or style except spacing. However it does let you do this...

(if you use the 'Reply' option you will see that its just plain text inside the 'code' tags)

Personally, I'd just tabulate the acceptances and let people read back over the thread if they want to see all of the rejections.

I've struggled for something more explicit, complicated or precise but all I can come up with for these accepted words (although, please, rainbow, underneath, achieve) is:

Words must contain a pair of different, traditional, vowels (a,e,i,o,u) AND at least 6 characters long AND an A anywhere in the word (I can't explain why 'appear' is rejected)

You're over thinking it. Other than the vowel pair part, my rule does not have anything to do with numbers. No math or foreign languages this time. :) You might try reading some of Perry's posts.

OK. I've tried to come up with a slightly different type of rule to what we've had in this thread before - hopefully it wont be too 'left field'.

Lets pretend WombatBreath has proposed these words for acceptance thro the GGDs. Below is the outcome...


ACCEPTED             |   REJECTED

I have no idea what this one is, but I've loved this game from early on, so I'll give a few words.

Cups, people, insects, stars, apples, gymnasts, paper, pencil.

Can I get the next game or do I have to guess this one?

Welcome Q-Cumber!

The way that most of these games work is that normally the winner becomes quiz master for the next round but its all pretty free and easy.

For most of the games section, it's worth ready the first post in the thread so that you can see what the rules or point of the game are.

Look out tho' because sometimes rules evolve, especially if the game has been going on for a long time.
