    Hangman is a word game in which one player chooses a word which one or more other players must guess one letter at a time. Each incorrect guess adds a part of a man on a gallows, while each correct guess is recorded under the gallows where the letter belongs in the word. We'll start the game with the gallows already built, though we can change that aspect of the format later, if we so choose. Also, in the future we may need to include hints as one of the rules.

    The first word consists of five letters...

    I--------I
    I
    I
    I
    I_________

    (I wonder if we could buy vowels? Have Vanna trot out and plug in letters and body parts?)

    (that circle is supposed to represent the hangman's head. The vertical line beneath it is supposed to represent his torso.)

    Didn't we used to do it by writing out the names of the body parts for each wrong letter?

    ~head ~ torso

    Etc.
