[Comments] (6) Games You Already Have Roundup III: The Search For Puzzle Games: Tonight we have puzzle games, both those correctly categorized and the refugees from yesterday. This elusive category contains some of my favorite games and some of my least favorite. And now, the games. What inspiration will the challenger bring?

Bonus: I should have reviewed these yesterday, but they were classified as puzzle games even though by the standards set out yesterday they're board games, so I missed them.

Excellent review! A lot of work...I mean play went into that!

"Ethnography"? It's almost entirely composed of the eight most frequent English letters [etaoinshr]. (Plus, once you've guessed [ethn], the rest should be pretty easy to figure out.) Now if you can win with "pygmy cub" or something, that is a different matter.

Best hangman word: "wax."

OK, "even on words like 'ethnography'" doesn't make sense. But my larger point (that Hangman inquisitors often mistake long words for hard words) stands.

Agreed, definitely.

I used to get slaughtered with "quiz".
