For those not familiar with the format, the idea is to solve a puzzle by completing the word or phrase that is missing its vowels. For example, if the puzzle is WMBLYCNFRNCCNTR, the correct answer is Wembley Conference Centre.
Which brings me on to the other aspect of the game - categories. To make things go a little smoother, the puzzle-setter should state the particular category the puzzle falls into. So that particular example would be Venues. I’m not going to draw up a list of categories, because that’d only serve to reduce the scope of the game in the future. Instead, the onus is on the puzzle-setter to state the category and do so accurately, without giving too much away. Categories don’t have to follow any particular pattern. The puzzles can go from one category to any other as puzzle-setters see fit.
The quiz will follow the same format as most quizzes on here; the first to correctly answer a puzzle gets to set the next one. The puzzle-setter must identify the first correct answer for the next puzzle to be set.
Players are free to set or answer puzzles at their own pace. Incessant reminders to set or answer puzzles within an arbitrary timeframe are not encouraged or permitted.
So, here goes
