For each syllable take the number of vowels minus 1, then sum it all up. A syllable without vowel counts as -1, but the total score can’t go below 0.


#1608

Eijolend: It’s actually number of vowels minus number of syllables, but the explanation sorta means the same thing, so…


#1609

That was surprisingly tricky! So there might be some obscure word where my explanation doesn’t work - oh well, good enough :slight_smile: . I think the first really important clue was “Meme” being one syllable and therefore worth a point - I spent a lot of time wondering what makes “e” so special over other vowels :smile:

Ok, new rule!
