Rules for a Super Hangman Game!

The rules are basically the same as the regular Hangman game, but with a few twists, namely... POINTS. This game will feature an ongoing score board, with people scoring points both for matching letters and guessing the puzzle. Basically, these rules make the game a lot more like "Wheel of Fortune."

LETTERS: Using "Scrabble Points", players will receive points each time a letter they guess appears in the puzzle. In other words, if you guess D (2 points), and there are 3 D's, you get 6 points. The regular vowel rule (no vowels until 5 consonants are guessed) will apply. Here are how the points go:

1: A, E, I, L, N, O, R, S, T, U
2: D, G
3: B, C, M, P
4: F, H, V, W, Y
5: K
8: J, X
10: Q, Z

To keep things interesting, and from us all just throwing Q's and Z's at the board, a WRONG guess will have a point value as well... Negative 5.

A week seems a little short for a round to me since sometimes the game doesn't move fast. Maybe two weeks?

And could maybe the points for the letters be posted periodically? I know I won't be able to remember what each letter is worth. (I would be lost in Scrabble if they weren't nice enough to put the points on the letter squares!)

Yeap, that's it... hopefully I did the point thing right. I assume the letters guessed since the last time I posted aren't awarded, just the remaining letters to the correct guesser? If so:

Points:

1: A, E, I, L, N, O, R, S, T, U
2: D, G
3: B, C, M, P
4: F, H, V, W, Y
5: K
8: J, X
10: Q, Z

I thought 25 points was the limit if you guessed right.

B?

Should there be a list of the guessed letters with the current game or is that part of the challenge?
