Hangman

Hangman

Our own version of the classic hangman game. Your goal is to save the hangman from the gallows by identifying the hidden word before you run out of guesses.

  1. In the box marked “your guess,” type letters that you believe the hidden word contains.
  2. If you choose a letter that is part of the hidden word, the computer fills in the blank(s), showing you where your letter appears in the word.
  3. If you choose a letter that is not part of the hidden word, it appears in the “garbage bin,” and a line is added to the hangman’s gallows.
  4. Guess correct letters and spell the hidden word before the hangman’s gallows are completed, and you win the game!
  5. After you finish the game, see if your friends can solve it. Just click on  to share the game and your result on Facebook, Google Plus, or Twitter. Friends will play the same word and will be able to compare results.
