Online Games - Understanding The Hangman Game

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 107

If there is a game that is known the world over it is Hangman. This is one of those mind-boggling games where you have to guess a word that is already known. The word has some missing letters. One has to guess the correct letters that will complete the predefined word. It can be played both for fun and for learning purposes. It tests one's knowledge of the English dictionary words. Of late, the Hangman game has been customized to include other languages such as French, German, Spanish, among many others.

One of the main reasons why people play Hangman is because it is more of an educational activity rather than a pass time. We have found out that Hangman deals with completing a predefined word with certain letters of the alphabet. This is an indirect way of learning words. You get to increase your vocabulary. You also get to discover new words.

What strategy is used when playing Hangman?

Most people who have played this game believe that there is a strategy that can be used to help someone win the game. One of them is to use vowels first. It has been discovered that one of the most common vowels that appears in many words is the letter 'e' and one of the most used consonants in many words is the letter 't'. This is mainly for the English language. So it is advisable that when you start guessing, you start with this letter then use the other vowels. Each language has its own strategy when playing Hangman.

One of the beautiful things about this game is that it can be played both online and offline. Kindergarten teachers can use this game to help children in spelling and also in learning new vocabulary. The teacher may also opt to do it for fun, when in real sense she is teaching the children new words. The teacher can write a predefined word on the blackboard, skip a few letters and let the children guess the other letters of the word.

The online Hangman game is a bit different. This is because as the years have gone by, the versions of the game have been made for certain specific categories. For example, you can get a Hangman game for countries, common names of men or women, names of animals, etc. The online Hangman also has the capability of having multi-players where one player enters a predefined word while the other guesses it.

In general, playing Hangman is actually learning a language.

It is possible to have fun and play Hangman online.
