Goatblind Variant: Goatblind

Rules

Goatblind is a mixture of Goatdown and Blind. In particular, it differs from the standard rules in the following ways:

In letters rounds, the picking player chooses the first 8 letters as normal, but then can decide exactly which letter to have in the final slot. This can be chosen with the keyboard or by clicking the letter in the interface. The player is given 6 seconds to make this decision. As in blind, the letters selection disappears after a few seconds.

In numbers rounds, there are no changes from the normal game.

Conundrums still have 9-letter answers, but only 8 letters are shown. Only one 9 letter word can be made by adding an extra letter to these 8, and this is the required answer. After the standard time is up (e.g. 30 seconds), the missing letter is revealed and an extra half-time (e.g. 15 seconds) is added. However solving the conundrum during this extra time is only worth 7 points. Also the selections are hidden after a few seconds.
