Common Knowledge Instructions

To solve the puzzle:
First Round:
Click an available letter (or type it) to reveal all the places it occurs in the answer.
If you try a letter that doesn't appear in the answer, you'll get a miss.
If you miss five times, you've been stopped for that puzzle.
At the end of each puzzle, you can continue by clicking the "Next Puzzle" button.
When you've finished the puzzles in the first round, continue by clicking the "Go to Second Round" button.
Second Round:
Examine the answers and partial answers from the first round to determine what they all have in common.
Type your answer, one letter per box, into the blanks.
When all the boxes are filled, the "Submit Answer" button will appear. Click it to check your answer.
If you don't get the right final answer, or if you'd like to finish your partial answers from the first round, you can click the "Start Over" button.
Warning: If you leave the puzzle page and then return, the puzzle may reset with any work you've done lost.
