    Hi Everyone :)

    This game is essentially just the game Hangman but with pokemon words. (credit to @Max1996 for the idea)

    The rules are as follows:

    The player currently posting the word/phrase hides the word with the use of underscores, like this:

    Arcanine -> _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    If the phrase you're thinking of consists of multiple words, you can use a hyphen to separate them, like this:

    Ultra Ball -> _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _

    The other players then take turns to guess the letters in the word/phrase as well as the word/phrase itself, incorrect guesses will result in a strike, after eight strikes have been given the round will end without a winner and the current player who is posting the word can post another. The player that correctly guesses the current word/phrase can then post a word of their own or if they wish to they can choose to pass on the opportunity to post a word to another player.

    The players that are currently guessing the letters/phrase are limited to 1-3 guesses before they must allow the player who is posting the current word/phrase to respond to those guesses and update the games current status. Also only pokemon-related words and or phrases are allowed in this game.

    The game looks like this. (my word for this game was Blastoise)

    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    Strikes: 0/8
    Guesses so far: None.

    (If someone were to have guessed an A, this would have been the result)

    Yes there's an A

    _ _ A _ _ _ _ _ _

    Strikes: 0/8
    Guesses so far: A

    (If they then guessed a G, this would have been the result)

    Sorry, no G

    _ _ A _ _ _ _ _ _

    Strikes: 1/8
    Guesses so far: A, G

    Anyway, let's begin:

    _ _ _ _ _ _

    Strikes: 0/8
    Guesses so far: None.
