Hangman Word Games

If you are looking for hangman games to play online, you have come to the right place. The classic word game that we all played as children with pencils on paper has gone digital, with lots of different themes and styles to choose from! At Today's Words we have a wide variety of hangman word games for you to play, and one of them will certainly be what you are looking for!

The way the classic hangman game works is that one person thinks up a word for the other player to guess, and writes out spaces for the letters on the paper, along with the gallows. The other player guesses letters, one at a time. If the letter is in word, the first player fills in the letter, otherwise, she draws a body part of the hangman on the gallows. If the player guessing gets all of the letters of the word before the hangman is completely hung he wins.

Each of our hangman games, here at Today's Word, is much the same as the classic game you remember, except that you are always the guessing player. You will be given a word to guess, and your job will be to guess letters in that word, filling out all the letters, before the hangman is complete, and win the game. The hangman is different in each of our games, including stickmen, a guy in a guillotine, another in a scary electric chair, as well as more light hearted versions, with balloons, pandas and windmills. We hope you enjoy!
