Just finished as well! It was a long phrase with easy letters. Managed to complete it with no mistakes. But I never saw my hangman :(
I should have gotten a wrong letter. Damn :p

So I know what my phrase is, Still have a few more letters to get in it, But I don't know the person who said it. Meaning I don't know where it comes from either. According to my wife who looked it up. has told me I may have played the game in the series, which is more frustrating, that I should know what it is.
This post might contain spelling mistakes, I'm a dyslexia. Also this may have a different opinion to yours.

I had quite a bit of fun with this challenge! It allowed me to stack a game from one of my favorite franchises...but, more importantly, my 7 year old nephew and I had a lot of fun working through it with two other games...Thanks for another fun challenge!

Kinda sucks that you only get one shot at this.

Ah absolutely. I think I read the FAQ wrong and assumed you got multiple attempts with the phrase changing each time.

I started the challenge a few days ago and then forgot about it, didn't unlock any achievement until yesterday and only remembered when I unlocked a 'c' achievement and thought that was very specific. Was the only strike I got, finished today. Thanks for the challenge!

It's interesting to see the stats for the most popular games being played for this challenge. As with the Christmas challenge, I completed it without using any of the top games.

My games are:
1. JackQuest (I started the challenge, wasn't specifically going for it, but the first four achievements I unlocked from this game all worked for the phrase, so I got lucky)
2. Heroes Trials
3. MS Wordament for Android
4. Persian Nights
5. Telltale Batman 2
6. AC Black Flag

As I said previously, love my phrase. I got to three lives left only because I wasn't really bothered - I wanted to keep my streak alive so I just sacrifice a life every morning on a random achievement before I head out for work.

The top three games should be phrase-related. Mine are Apex Legends, Access Denied and Kingdom Hearts III.

Don't know if this is mentioned already but it would be nice to be able to pause the challenge. I see now that my daughter is playing Just Dance 2019 under my account and has already cost me 2 lives laugh

How do you search for an achievement with a specific letter?

I also think this should be a monthly event. It went by quickly once I figured out the word and it contained several of the same letters, making it easy to obtain when I knew the words. My phrase was long: 5 letters, 2 letters, 4 letters, 8 letters, and 4 letters.
There is always a way.

I didn't expect to have a sentence from a "board" game instead from a "video" game, but Ok, it is a game after all.

My phrase was easy to complete while I played Forza Horizon 3, just one achievement couldn't be avoided (Reach Level 50), so I finished the challenge with 7 lives remaining.
