Masterword was created by hPerks
People seemed to like this game, so I'll give it its own thread.

This game works like the famous code-breaking game Mastermind , only with letters instead of colours, and words instead of codes.

In each round, one person (the codemaker) thinks of a secret 4-letter word. Everyone else are codebreakers, whose job it is to guess the word.

For each word guessed, the guesser will receive one point for each letter that the guessed word and the secret word have in common, and two points if that letter occurs in the same position in both words. (See the examples below for clarification on specifics). However, the codemaker will not disclose which letters are shared by the two words; just how many.

The codemaker will maintain a full list of all the words that have been guessed, and after each word they will display how many points that guess received, itemized into +2s and +1s. As in Hangman, the codemaker will periodically update this list to reflect new guesses, preferably 2-4 guesses at a time. You can only make one guess at a time in between updates.

Once a codebreaker guesses the actual word, they receive 10 points (rather than the 8 they would receive from four correctly-positioned letters), and that guesser becomes the new codemaker in the next round. Again, like Hangman, a set lasts twenty rounds, and scores reset after every set.

Example of play (things in italics are secret):

(Secret word: DUCK)
Guess: FROG - +0 (no letters in common)
Guess: BIRD - +1 (1 point for the D, because DUCK has a D)
Guess: PORK - +2 (2 points for the K, because it's in the same position [the last letter] in both words)
Guess: DRUM - +2 +1 (2 points for the D, 1 point for the U)
Guess: DODO - +2 (2 points for the D - not four, since D only occurs once in the secret word)
Guess: DUNK - +2 +2 +2 (D, U and K are all in the same positions in both words)
Guess: DUCK - +10 (and that's the end of the round)

If the secret word has a double letter (e.g. "MEME"):

Guess: PERK - +2 (for the E)
Guess: JEEF - +2 +1 (for both Es - one of them is in the right place)
Guess: PEPE - +2 +2 (for both Es)

A codemaker who is new to the game might be advised to stick to words with four different letters.

I'll start as the codemaker with Round 1/20. Start guessing!

New rule: If a codemaker makes a mistake in scoring a word (thus giving codebreakers incorrect information), they lose 5 points from their score.

The object of destroying walls is pretty much to just get ch*rploads of bricks and buy loads of everything, while learning for destroying walls in the process. Its time to rise to greatness!
