The goal of Hangman is to guess a randomly chosen word that is as long as the number of dashes given.
The players take turns guessing a letter. When the letter is not in the word, a piece of the 10-piece gallows will be built up. The turn can also be used to guess the correct word. If this was incorrect, a piece of the gallows will be built up.
The player who first guesses the word wins the game. When the gallows or the word to be found is complete, the game ends in a draw.
