Default Game: Ditloids

Ditloids is a game in which you have to figure out the meanings of abbreviated sentences or sayings that include both numbers and letters. I will choose a sentence/phrase/quote and you will have to geuss what it is. I will only reveal the first letter or number of the word.

FOR EXAMPLE:

P i f.* (The phrase is: Photography is fun. )

You all would take geusses at what the sentence is. Your geuss doesn't have to be gramatically correct.
If someone's geuss is :Photocamel is fun. Then I would say post back saying: Gods Eyes (or whoever geussed) geuss (Photocamel is fun.) has found two of the words. The sentence is now P is fun. If the person geussed a word correctly but out of place, I would post back: Gods Eyes geuss has found a word but it is out of place. You all would keep geussing untill you found the sentence/phrase/quote and then I would pick a new phrase.

If anyone has any questions about how to play please post a question of PM me.



The first sentence/phrase/quote is: A p i o a g a t p b t c.

A photograph is only as good as the photographer behind the camera.

How's that?

Now that's got to be it. This could be a tough game, but looks like fun.

I suspect it's close, but it could also be:

A photo is only as good as the photographer behind the camera.

or

A picture is only as good as the photographer behind the camera.

or even

A photograph is only as good as the person behind the camera.


It'll be interesting to see how God's Eyes scores this one if no one of these guesses turns out to be entirely correct but the aggregate includes all the correct words.

I noticed that too, but I also noticed that God's Eyes never counted the word A in Russell's guess. Monitoring and scoring the guesses is harder than it seems; it would be easy to make such a mistake.
