That was fast! LOL.

Hmm. Post your answer using the {hidden} {/hidden} tags. That way anyone else who wants to solve can't see it until they post to the thread.

The hidden thing didn't work... I'll use the spoiler thing maybe?

You are correct. (Though you've only solved part of it, you could easily look up the rest. Hmm. Will have to experiment with this game some, too. To make it harder...mwah ha ha) 

(The hidden tag hides whatever you put there from anyone who has not posted in the thread. Thus since you've posted in the thread it wouldn't appear to be hidden to you. It's hidden from others, though.)

It wasn't that I could see it, they showed up actually saying the words "hidden" and "/hidden"

Yeah, I was afraid that was going to give it away. LOL. But hey...was pretty much just experimenting with whether this would actually work on a message board. lol.

There could always be more people with numbers in their name, I'm just biased, I guess. lol

By all means anyone can post a game (hangman, cryptogram, six degrees, any other game you know that might work on a message board.  If you have an idea for a game but need something (like icons like the hangman ones) let me know and I'll set it up if it's possible. Otherwise post (or host) away!

(And yes, I'd get tired of posting all of 'em myself ;) )
