Hi everyone,

I thought it would be fun to play Hangman, so lets give it a try.....

Hangman is a guessing game for two or more players. One player thinks of a word and the others try to guess it by suggesting letters.

The word to guess is represented by a row of dashes, giving the number of letters. If the guessing players suggest a letter which occurs in the word. (in this case we will go one letter at a time) the starting player writes it in all its correct positions. If the suggested letter does not occur in the word, the starting player draws one element of the hangman diagram (head, body, right arm,left arm, right leg, and left leg) as a tally mark.

The game is over when:

The guessing players completes the word, or guesses the whole word correctly
The starting player completes the diagram:

Whoever guesses the word or phrase correctly, or chooses the last letter that fills in the word or phrase will then start the new game. If the diagram is filled in the Game Starter just starts a new one. Remember to keep things family friendly

*NOTE FOR PLAYERS* - Once a letter is posted you must wait for a reply, before posting another letter.

===============================================

A new game would look like this….

POST 1 Game starter picks the word and posts the following.
=======

Word:
`_ _ _ _ _	 _ _	_ _`

===============================================

I think this will be fun…Game Starters You can get the correct image that you need out of the code tags below, they are all labeled accordingly….

*note* Also the word or phrase must be put in code tags so you can see the spaces in between the letters.

```New Game :

Head, Body, Both Arms, Right Leg:

Head , body, Both Arms, Both Legs:
