BLEEDING

First letter cannot be right: Brainden=0

2nd cannot be right: cLoister=0

either 5th or 6th must be wrong: rigiDIty=1

If the score is 5, then --EE--NG must be right because 1st 2 cannot be, and only one out of 5th and 6th can be.

BLEEDERS and CREEPERS

If they have the same score, some out of --EE-ERS are correct

--EE---- is most likely.

BLOOPERS=0 would prove --EE---- if BLEEDERS/CREEPERS=2

I didn't include BLOOPERS since BLEEDERS/CREEPERS didn't equal 2. Was that your intention?

Yeah

CREEPIER

if 0, then NG are last 2 as only change from creepiNG

if 1, then -----I-- b/c CREEPers=0, CREEPing=2, and if NG were correct, score would be 0, so only 1 of those can be and I must be.

Score greater than 2 means there's a misscore somewhere.

Score changes:  Shadow7 +5,   WombatBreath +10,   JDave +14

Good job WbB! When I saw an 'ing' word come out I suddenly realized that it wasn't going to be much longer. And it did seem that modifiying words to create proofs is harder with longer words.

JDave: 29

Shadow7: 20

WombatBreath: 10
