    So, me and my friend have been playing text hangman. So I decided to start a TSR Hangman. You have a maximum of 5 incorrect guesses. On the 6th incorrect guess, the man is hung, and the answer is revealed.

    I shall post the word to be guessed using a dash (-) for each letter. There will be a slash (/) separating each word, if there is more than one. Many people can play at once, and post the letter they are guessing. The letter with the most votes (that has been posted the most) is the guess. If it is correct, it will be revealed. For example: The word: ---------

    I guess A:

    --a------

    I guess B

    Incorrect:




    ____________

    I guess C

    Incorrect
    |
    |
    |
    |__________

    Third incorrect guess:
    |-|
    |
    |
    |
    |______________

    Fourth incorrect guess:
    |-|
    | 0
    |
    |
    |______________

    Fifth incorrect guess:
    |-|
    | 0
    | /|\
    |
    |__________________

    Sixth incorrect guess:
    |-|
    | 0
    | /|\
    | /\
    |_____________

    Answer revealed: dragonfly

    OK, here's the first one:

    I can't remember where I heard this from, but E is the most common letter in these hangman games etc, closely followed by T.

    Once vowels are established i then go for
    S
    T
    R
    = v common consonants

    Yep - according to that link, S is a better guess than T, for the first guess.
