First letter is Z

Debit eliminates the IT in Zizit

Pizza eliminates the IZ in Zizit

clever :P double elimination each time. That's dangerous if those go above zero though, cuz then you have to re-break it down to get which one. But anyway Framm +5


Z _ _ _ _

X Y L O L - 0

A P P L E - 0

M A F I A - 0

Z I Z I T - 1

P I Z Z A - 0

Z O R I S - 2

second letter = o because zorris, comet, and zonks had more than 1. the second letter isn't i because pizza had 0.

that's not sufficient. Not only did COMET get just 1 but ZORIS and ZONKS got 2 therefore there's 1 in ORIS and 1 in ONKS, that doesnt mean it's the O, it could be the R from ORIS and the K from ONKS, for example. Or a number of other possibilities. Disproving the i=2 isn't enough. You need to show that the extra 1 in both ZONKS and ZORIS (and ZONES) came from whatever letter instead of any other letter.

edit - so Unreality +5

I know that zooid and zooty are real, and "zooey" is the name of a famous actress, but zombi...? I think that's the original voodoo term for a zombie though :rolleyes: Whatever haha
