Hangman is a paper and pencil game typically played between 2 players, though it can be played in greater numbers. The goal is to identify the word chosen by the taskmaster by suggesting letters one at a time. For each correct suggestion the taskmaster fills in the appropriate blank(s). For each incorrect suggestion the taskmaster adds more to a drawing, which traditionally is a drawing of a stick-figure hanging from a gallows. If the drawing is completed before the word is figured out, the taskmaster wins the game.
