View Full Version : Letter Game
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 1:06pm
O.K, Here's something to boggle your minds at:
See if you can figure them all out. The crew in the FAI have 24 so far.
Edit: Only lacking answers to E,V. And dang is it hard.

It is hard indeed. I will have to spend some more time on it later today. Once this post has run for a while we might think of posting the correct answers.
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 6:25pm
Agreed. I wont post the answers, that I have, for a few days. Gives people a chance to scream in frustration.
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 6:30pm
I got like two. Sheesh.

Wed, 21st Jul '04, 6:44pm
Yeah, it's sure hard... At least I got the A!
/me swells with pride
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 7:37pm
I don't even know 26 "new-ish" games...
I have answers to five of them only.
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 8:01pm
I'll let you all know, all the games are from the 90s. The newest is 1999, and oldest 1993. The rest are spread around 94-96
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 8:44pm
I can't get any........
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 8:56pm
Harbourboy, you gotta be kidding. At least the 'D" should ring a bell?!
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 9:22pm
You know, I hate to say it HB, but maybe guessing games arent your forte. Quote games... this... :grin: :lol: :roll:
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 9:30pm
Aye, "D"'s a classic. I suppose many others are as well, but so far i've only ramembered 3 of them :confused:
And that "Y"!! I know it, just cant remember, sheesh!
Finaly, 7 with "J".

The 'D' looks like 'Daredevil' to me, but that's not a game.
Guessing games are my forte, but only ones where I know the answers.
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 9:36pm
I got 5, and that Y looks familiar, but the rest of them, I have no idea about
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 10:47pm
The "Z" is way older than 90's, guys. I think I had it for my Apple II+ in 1983 or 1984. Certainly by the late '80's in any event.

Only got the D and the y.
The L and W look pretty awsomely familiar too.
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 11:15pm
I got three.
C'mon people, the D is a must-know for any gamer.
I is a both a classic and an ancient too.
That's one of the first 'challenging' games I ever played...

I got 10 (or was it 11?) before I went to the chat and got help on most other. Only lacking those Takara does now :grin:
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 11:20pm
5 :p and at least 3-4 more that look strikingly familiar.
Kudos to the FAI crew for 22 so far. I bet you beat the last four, too :thumb:
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 11:25pm
Woohoo! I have got 1 so far.....
Wed, 21st Jul '04, 11:43pm
13 at a glance. None of the ones yet-unknown in the chatroom, though.
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 12:05am
Man, the Q is going to be the death of me! ARG!
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 12:17am
I have 3, 4 after asking what Y was in the Chat.
Master of Nuhn
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 12:44am
Hah! Multiple answers are possible. At least with the Y.
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 1:28am
Hah! Multiple answers are possible. At least with the Y. Mmmh, now I am getting curious what other games there are for Y? I hope you don't mean different parts of the same game, like in BG1 and BG2.
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 2:12am
I only got D,F, and I so far.
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 7:57am
Please! Someone tell me what S is! I'm sure I've seen it somewhere...
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 7:57am
So far I've gotten D, F, J, L, T, and U. So 6. :D
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 9:59am
I have six now with D,F,T,H,L and Y. Damn this is hard, couple of them seems familiar but I can't figure out where I've seen them. I haven't even cheated and looked at my game collection yet :D
wohoo, got the J so 7 now.
Wee, Z right too. I have actually never played the game but there aren't that many famous titles beginning with Z so I was able to guess it ;)
MORE MORE MORE! Now I have 9 with C guessed and done. Really ebarassing for me not to remember such a glorious game from my favorite genre.
Yup yup, now the number is 13 with G,B and W guessed right. I'll get them all soon enough :D
And X it is. 14 now, I guessed that damn game severeal times but wrote it the wrong way (well the right way actually) and the letter game just would not accept it.
Yay! One more for me. K this time. I thought about it a long time but then thought that they would have only truly legendary games here. Boy was I wrong... 15 letters now. I'll get through this all by myself even if it took my health. I am more than slightly irritated with M,A,I and U which all look familiar.

Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 10:44am
D,G,I,J,L,Y, so far
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 1:19pm
Uhh, I got 19 so far, but I want to take the game home where I can think better, and I don't know how to get it... (yes, I already saved as, but doesn't work)
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 1:31pm
So far, I've got 7 letters:
C, D, F, J, L, P and T.
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 4:35pm
D, F, H, I, L, T and U.
More to come ;)
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 5:47pm
I have actually never played the game but there aren't that many famous titles beginning with Z so I was able to guess it Some of the letters can be anywhere in the title, which makes it even more difficult, e.g. the E. Others like the W and B look so familiar that you feel the title forming on you tongue...
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 6:14pm
B, C, D, I, J, K, L, T, U and Y so far.
I'm SO sure I've seen that "S" before...
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 7:29pm
Bah, I've tried the names of loads of games (Space Invaders, Frogger, Pacman, Ms Pacman, Defender, Hyper-Olympics, Moon Patrol, Asteroids etc) and I've still only got 1 so far (D).......
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 7:32pm
Some of the games aren't that old...and actually don't run on my machine.
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 7:46pm
Wahey! I got 'T' after spotting the part of the letter before it. That's 2 now. (D,T).
Thu, 22nd Jul '04, 11:56pm
Thanks be to Zarakinthis, we now have S and Q. :roll:
When he told me S I was like :doh: I'd tried it on some of the others.
Only V, and E to get now. :bang:
Fri, 23rd Jul '04, 1:51am
Somebody PM me and tell me what Q was, for the love of God!
Fri, 23rd Jul '04, 4:33am
Well, I've only managed the D and the I so far, but then I'm not really that widely-experienced in gaming.
Fri, 23rd Jul '04, 5:19am
Aldazar - I only have D and T so far so don't feel too bad. I'll swap your I for my T if you like.
Fri, 23rd Jul '04, 12:55pm
WooHoo! I've got the V! Only E to get and I have them all!
Fri, 23rd Jul '04, 1:15pm
Harbourboy... guessed D?
Try, say after me... Hindo's D....!
Sun, 25th Jul '04, 12:25am

Sun, 25th Jul '04, 12:55am

Sun, 25th Jul '04, 8:29am

What? I can't believe this? They don't have "Daikatana" in there! tis madness! Woe are they!
Mon, 26th Jul '04, 12:08pm
A first glance I got D right away. Then L. Y and Z took me some time. The rest, I must be getting old... I just can't to remember.
Tue, 27th Jul '04, 7:55pm

Got 6; no more, no less.
Tue, 27th Jul '04, 9:57pm
