# The hangman game backward #3

Hangman game backward version 3 - guess what was the question:

fill in "d" - Your white shirt soaked with my blood but you wouldn't care.
fill in "n" - It will be nice to have it on table or bedside.
fill in "t" - You're looking at me now without knowing. In fact you are touching / smelling / hearing / tasting me without knowing.

The question was: _ p p l e

followed by explanation.

• I hope there are no tricks like "wwll" this time? :-) Commented May 21, 2015 at 17:53
• @randal'thor Looks like we weren't so lucky. Commented May 21, 2015 at 20:00
• These backward hangman puzzles are really fun and ingenious. Commented May 21, 2015 at 20:02
• @AggieKidd We should have noticed that now it says just 'fill in "d"' instead of 'fill in a "d"'! +1 to your answer anyway. Commented May 21, 2015 at 20:02
• Oh man nothing can escape your eyes rand al'thor? I silently removed them and guess it didnt' work :D

Could it be

m a _ _ e r

with "d"

madder - a red dye or pigment obtained from the root of the madder plant, or a synthetic dye resembling it.
presumably you are soaking your white shirt with this red dye (the color of blood!) because you want to dye your shirt red.

with "n"

manner - table manners and bedside manners are both good things to have

with "t"

matter - everything is made of matter!

• Brilliant! This has to be it. Commented May 21, 2015 at 19:58
• Ah! Two blanks! Well done. Commented May 22, 2015 at 12:17
• @EngineerToast I just edited the answer to make it more apparent

Maybe a bit of a stretch, but is it

ti_e

fill in "d" - Your white shirt soaked with my blood but you wouldn't care.

tide - the magical laundry detergent will get out blood.

fill in "n" - It will be nice to have it on table or bedside.

tine - fork on a table, some other pokey thing by the bed for... well....

fill in "t" - You're looking at me now without knowing. In fact you are touching / smelling / hearing / tasting me without knowing.

tite - a bit of an old word, but defined as "immediate" here. We touch, smell, hear, and taste the present or immediate.

• I like how 4 people agreed with your +1, and somehow the answer only has 2 upvotes! Commented May 21, 2015 at 19:47
• If the second line works out I'll have had created a riddle with 2 answer unknowingly. "Tide" just match perfectly here!

• @Alex If it had been an 'm' rather than an "n", then I think it would have worked perfectly. The "n" doesn't quite fit though :-( Commented May 21, 2015 at 20:33
• @AggieKidd 'm' as in 'time'?

• @Alex Very nice. Good luck, that sounds like a challenge to come up with as much as to solve. Commented May 21, 2015 at 20:45
