Welcome to

THE SPHINX'S REVENGE

The Sphinx's Revenge is a word game similar to Pictionary, Win, Lose, or Draw, or Classic Concentration.
Every week you will be presented with 3 puzzles.  For each puzzle, your task is to figure out what
GREEK word is being depicted by combining the sounds made by the ENGLISH words depicted in the puzzle.  The answer to the puzzle, though, will require you to take that GREEK word and translate it into ENGLISH.
To help you in your task, we provide up to three hints per puzzle, with each hint reducing the total possible points you can receive for a correct guess. For example:



SKI + LOW = "SKEELO". The English word for SKYLO is DOG, and that's what you put in the answer box-- DOG.

Scoring:  Each puzzle is worth 100 points.  There is no penalty for guessing, however, points will be deducted for each hint that you ask to be revealed.

Number of Hints Displayed Total Possible Points Remaining
1 90
70
3 40

  Each game consists of 3 puzzles, for a total possible score of 300 points.

You can save the game at any time and come back to the puzzle at later time.  If you've exhausted your hints and are totally stumped, you can give up, have the answer revealed, and move on to the next puzzle.

After the game is over, you will have a chance not only to see how you did, but to compare your scores against other players. 
A new edition of The Sphinx's Revenge will come out  every week, so be sure to check back for new editions.
Scores will be cumulative, so don't worry if you have a bad week -- there will be plenty of time to make up for it.

*To play The Sphinx's Revenge, you must be a registered member of DCGreeks.com, so the game can track your score from week to week.   

New Games Released Weekly!
You can play this week's game as well as past editions.
All scores count for the Leaderboard standings!

The Sphinx's Revenge will be on hiatus after Episode #20 so we can bring back new episodes of THE GREEKEST LINK!
