(I have no idea what the first two words are yet; the ones I have chosen are just place fillers.)

Whatever happened to this thread? Was Scoundrel's answer correct? Shame it's stopped - seemed like a fun game .

Why not use the same format as GTCU e.g. once there is a winner a new topic is started also may be add some rules like no more that 6 words / numbers

what do you all think

Part of it is that God's Eyes was the only person giving clues and, after a few initial guesses, I was apparently the only one still in the game. My last guess had two words correct in it but they were in the wrong positions. I had already correctly guessed two of these puzzles and by that time was wondering if this was going to be a case of only God's Eyes making the puzzles and only I guessing them. If that was the case, I wasn't going to spend any more time on them.

I also came up with a puzzle of my own that to date has received no guesses but is still active. Here it is again:

Longer puzzles may look more difficult but are really not. The longer puzzles offer a better chance of producing clues from the initial guesses in the form of correctly-guessed single words, which makes their final solution easier. This is much like Hangman, where you have to guess more letters but you have a better chance of guessing a correct letter.

Wow, that looks hard to me - but I've never done these ditloids before. Do we get clues? .

Shortie's answer has two words correct and a third one, time, in the wrong place. The quote is now
N o c can do e w. S w y t a m l f t p c.

If you want to simplify the game, you might want to put a restriction on made-up words, trade names, and proper nouns and allow for some spelling variants between the British and American dialects, such as honor/honour, center/centre, plow/plough, and the -ize/-ise suffix.

That one is really close despite your not quite following the pattern. (The second word in your guess does not begin with an o.) The puzzle is now
