What Is Hangman?

Hangman is a timeless game of mystery and wordplay that tests your vocabulary and deductive reasoning! In this game, you are tasked with guessing a hidden word, letter by letter. But beware, for each incorrect guess moves you closer to the completion of the gallows, and the game's perilous end.

This game can be played in English or Spanish. You can even create your own word list.


How to Play Hangman
  • Guess the hidden word by choosing one letter at a time.
  • If you guess a letter in the hidden word, then it will show in the hidden word, and the letter will turn green on the keyboard.
  • If you guess a letter that is not in the hidden word, the letter will show red on the keyboard, and the hangman will build another stage of the the gallows.
  • If the gallows are completed, you lose.
