Play Procedures

Guessing the Answer

You can guess a hidden word or phrase in two ways:

  • Click a letter in the alphabet table to see if it appears in the word or phrase. If the letter is a part of the word or phrase, the page will automatically refresh and the hidden letter will appear. If the letter is not part of the word or phrase, the page will automatically refresh and a part of the hangman will appear.
  • Type the entire answer in the text box provided and click Guess the answer. Your answer must exactly match the hidden word or phrase. If your guess is correct, the hidden word or phrase will appear. If your answer is wrong, the page will automatically refresh and a part of the hangman will appear.

Repeat these procedures until you guess the entire hidden word or phrase or until you run out of attempts. You run out of attempts when the entire hangman appears. Click Next puzzle to go to the next hidden word or phrase. Once you have guessed the last hidden word or phrase, click Results to display your overall score.
