Cooperative Zendo

Not the kind with cardstock and pawns. Mostly play by post Mafia so far.

(I don't expect this is correct but am interested in how it will be proved to be incorrect.)

When I said "letters" I meant "English letters," edited the first post to reflect that. 's' and 'ss' are yesses, 'qwerty' and 'Fëanor' are nos.

Including my thoughts behind my guesses in a spoilerbox, since people were suggesting sharing them.

thought process
An awful lot of the "no"s seem to have doubled letters, but not all. Dunno what's up with that.

The empty string made it, so there's no "must contain" requirement.

The whole alphabet made it, so there's probably no "must not contain" requirement. I'll double-check with capitals.

We've never seen "add one letter" take us from "yes" to "no" or vice versa. I'm gonna try and make that happen.

I'm curious if order matters, so I'm going to check for that


'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'?
'aa'?
'be'?
'bcb'?
'cbb'?
'ebe'?
'eeb'?

My guess on the first paragraph of your spoilerbox: both initial examples fit that pattern, so a lot of our guesses have..

More guesses, messing around with the first examples:

'bbcbbc'
'beebee'
'bbcbee'
'beebbc'
'bbbece'
'bbebec'
'b'

Is "Fëanor" a 'no' because 'ë' is not an English letter, or actually ruled out because of the rule?
