Instructions

Guess letters one at a time to solve the word puzzle. Click a letter to guess it, or type with your keyboard. Each time you solve a word, the balloons you save are added to your score. Up for a challenge? Increase the difficulty and you'll have fewer balloons to hang on to!

 

HANGMAN TIPS AND STRATEGIES

 

Try guessing the vowels - A good strategy is to begin by guessing a few vowels. With only five vowels in the English alphabet, you’ll quickly fill up those blanks without losing too many balloons.

 

Etaoin shrdlu - "Etaoin shrdlu" isn’t a phrase from a foreign language. It’s just a list of the most common letters used in English, in order of frequency. "E" is the most commonly used letter, "t" is second-most common, etc. So try guessing those letters first.

 

Remember the category - During each round of hangman you'll want to use that hint to focus your guesses.

 

Solve individual words - Sometimes you’re not solving for a word, but a phrase. Make sure you’re trying to solve each of the words individually and not just hyper-focusing on guessing the correct letters. If you’re able to solve even one word in the phrase, that word, combined with the tip at the top of the window, will greatly increase your chances of winning that round of hangman.

 

Don’t forget your Js and Zs - The letters J and Z always trip people up. They’re both fairly rare and it’s not always obvious when you need one to complete a word or phrase. Don’t guess a Z or a J at the very beginning, but keep them in mind as you play.
