4 letter mastermind

Postby Moose Anus » Wed Jun 24, 2015 3:36 pm UTC

This is like Mastermind except it uses 4 letter words instead of colored pegs.
o letter matches and is in correct place
x letter matches but is not in correct place
- letter does not match

* Only the 26 letter characters found in the English alphabet are allowed, and upper/lower case differences are disregarded. All solutions and guesses must consist of exactly 4 letters.
* Interim hints should be sorted in the order ox-. Example: oox- is correct, o-xo is incorrect.
* Solutions should be words or names that would be recognizable to most of our forum users. Avoid just random letters.
* It is helpful for the Mastermind to list all guesses about the current puzzle so far when doing updates.
* You may guess as many times in a puzzle as you like, but please wait for the Mastermind to evaluate your guess before guessing again. However, other people may also guess while waiting for the Mastermind.

Example game:
Mastermind: I have a word.
Guesser 1: Fork
Guesser 2: Snow
Mastermind: Fork o---, Snow ----
Guesser 1: Figs
Mastermind: Figs o---
Guesser 3: Milk
Guesser 2: Help
Mastermind: Milk oo--, Help x---
Guesser 4: Pick
Mastermind: Pick oooo. Pick is Correct! Guesser 4 is now Mastermind.

I'll go first. I have a word. Start guessing.
Lemonade? ...Aww, ok.
