1 Answer 1


The third time! I really don't want to see it happening again. Why don't you join it, friends?

My Answer... Again.

  • Perfect, You got it the first time. I don't think the blank one can be solved in such a short time. The goal of games is to challenge the players, not frustrate them, so the additional word hints are better suited for the general public. Leave the blanked one to the hard-core gamers
