Hangman
http://www.greyolltwit.com/educational.html
Hangman
My version of the very old and simple word game where you can choose from the word lists provided or make your own. The idea of the game is to guess the word or phrase picked at random from a list before the hangman scaffold is fully built. Each time you guess a letter, if it appears in a word it will show up in the correct position including if it appears more than once. For every letter you try that is not in the word or phrase, a piece of the hangman scaffold is shown.
The different word lists or categories included with the program are World Countries, Capital Cities, Bible Characters, Birds, Animals, Insects, Flowers, Vegetables, Films, Children's Films, Sports and Fruits.
