Can you beat the hangman ?
$10k prize (+ rollover if applicable) from my admin char plus all monies taken from purchased vowels.
It costs you 5k (to my admin char) to purchase a vowel - you may
post your vowel on the thread prior to making the xfr (to avoid conflict due
to timing) but I'll check before updating to make sure the money has been
Purchasing a vowel gives you a free guess at the word without the penalty
of elimination if your guess is incorrect. NB. Failure to post your guess within 5 mins of my "updated" text and the game is
re-opened for other players to choose additional letters. A max of one vowel can be purchased by any one person during a
single game. Apologies in advance if you guess a vowel and then miss my
subsequent update because I've been afk at time of your post, but it's only 5k
so don't give me a hard time...
I'll update the post as often as I can with the first entry after
each update being the only one considered. (If there are multiple entries
after my update, due to timing or because you've not read these rules, I'll

DiabloSpawn 1 (Aquatint - $20k)
Flamingo Neck 1 (Viscosity - $40k)
QBBarzooMonkey hangs the man "Trapeze".
Drakon(DS) hangs the man "Harbinger".
Flamingo Neck hangs the man "Spiel".

New Game. Pot starts at $10k again.
Couple of comments that my words are a bit vague so from now on I'm only going to use words I've actually heard said in conversation during my day. Don't worry there will be no Scottish slang, only words that I can find in the online dictionary I use will be included.

Playing for $10k.
Nightstrike, your entry came after Mikel and before my update so has been deleted.

I guess I misunderstood.. I saw Bast, Ranger, and Flamingo all post between the last updates.
Gah... darn Oddbird......

Sorry, perhaps I'm confusing people because I'm deleting my previous "update" text every time I do a fresh update. This is because I'm lazy and just c&p my update text.
I'll stop deleting to avoid confusion.
Did you add a limb for the guess of S? He still looks the same.

Oops, forgot to add the letter ;)

Updated. Pot is now $15k.
Flamingo has 5 mins before anyone else can guess.

Sorry, Flamingo Neck Hangs the man.
$15k pot carried over for next game.
