About

A little game designed for primary kids to revise vocabulary in classroom. Setting up the vocabulary list is part of the learning process.

Hangman is a paper and pencil guessing game for two or more players. One player thinks of a word, phrase or sentence and the other tries to guess it by suggesting letters or numbers, within a certain number of guesses. In this version for children the computer selects a word, phrase or sentence randomly out of a word-list defined in a configuration file. As a reward, with every guessed letter, some ASCII-art is gradually disclosed.
