Hangman is a word-guessing game based on the original paper and pencil version played by at least two players.

The game shows you a series of blank spaces. You have a certain number of guesses; every time you guess wrong, a drawing of a hanged man will keep being drawn until a certain amount of mistakes are made. Once you lose, the drawing will be finished and the hanged man will literally be a hangman.

This version of the game comes with two different word lists (Basic and Advanced) and also allows you to create up to six different word lists with whatever words you choose. It will also show you a hint if you press the F1 key, or outright show you the word if you press F2 (but that's cheating, so please don't do it.)
