Default Jotto Shootout 2

I was looking at games that were played here before my time, and I found a few threads of a game called Jotto (Jotto Melee, Jotto Blitz, Shootout at the Jotto Corral)

I'd like to run a game similar to the last, Shootout at the Jotto Corral. Here are the rules (mostly copy/pasted from the original game thread).

Game Goal: Guess everyone else's words. The winner is the one who either lives the longest, or if multiple people die in the same round, the one who has scored the most hits throughout the game. You die when all of your words have been guessed. Once you have died, you can no longer submit guesses.

To Enter: PM me 3 legal Jotto words. A legal Jotto word is a) 5 letters long, and b) 5 different letters. Here's a list that urysohn found a long time ago of 5 letter words (note: not all are legal Jotto words).

To Play: You get 3 guesses each round (to be posted in this thread). You can distribute those guesses any way you'd like. For example, you can guess 3 different words at one player, or two words on one player and one on another, or three words on three different players (or the same word on 3 different players). When guessing on a player, you will be guessing on their first submitted word. Once that word has been guessed, then players will be guessing on their second submitted word.

In the round that a player's word has been guessed, all other guesses on that player will still be on the guessed word.

To submit a guess, post in this thread following the format below:

PlayerA: WAXED, ALONG
PlayerB: BATHS


If the guess is not a valid Jotto word, it does not count.

Scoring: You will get points for each letter that is correct. If your word is an anagram or exact match on the player's word, then that word has been guessed and you get the maximum amount of 5 points.

For example, if Player C made the guesses above, and PlayerA's word was CORNY and PlayerB's word was BATHE, then the results posted by me to PlayerC would look like this (I'm open to different formats if you guys have suggestions):

Round X Results
#PlayerC@PlayerA(1), WAXED - 0
#PlayerC@PlayerA(1), ALONG - 2
#PlayerC@PlayerB(2), BATHS - 4


The number in parenthesis after the player's name indicates which word is being guessed at (1, 2, or 3).

If you submit DEWAX as a guess and the word is WAXED, then you would get 5 points and you would have guessed the word (since DEWAX is an anagram of WAXED, and DEWAX is a valid Jotto word).

We'll start as soon as we have 6 or 7 people. I will accept up to 10 people.
