I've always treated the rules as being just two guesses a day and only having a third shot if invited to do so.

I hadnt noticed anyone sneaking in extra guesses to be honest :D

Lets make it two guesses a day - right or wrong, unless invited by the quiz leader to have another go. That keeps it simple
