    Hangman is a popular game where players must guess the word or phrase by guessing individual letters. I'm sure you are all familiar with Hangman but here is some clarification.

    Game Play

    The first person posts a series of underscores (and slashes for separating words) depicting the number of letters in their chosen word or phrase, along with a category for their answer.
    All other players can then guess one letter or have one guess at the entire word or phrase between each of the first person's replies.
    The first player to guess the word or phrase starts the next hangman.
    Edit: If two or more players guess the same letter at the same time, these players can change their letters for another letter as it's pointless asking for the same letter.
    Edit: If a player happens to guess the last missing letter in the word, this means that they have found the correct word. Gameplay continues as normal; the correct player sets the next hangman.

    For example...

    Player 1: _ _ _ _ _

    Clue: City

    Player 2: A

    Player 3: E

    Player 4: S

    Player 1: _ A _ _ S

    E is not in the word.

    Player 2: Paris

    Player 1: Paris is correct.

    And so it begins...
