Thank you for checking out our site. This version of the program is intended for use with conventional versions of the
game (eg. the one we played a kids). It uses the Enable dictionary, which matches the one used by Zygna, and a fairly
efficient back-end algorithm for crunching through it quickly.
This program uses the Enable dictionary, which matches the one used by Zygna. It also has a fairly
efficient back-end algorithm for crunching through it quickly. If you are playing Zynga's version of the game, check
out our specialized solver - there are some twists in the rules which allow you to eliminate certain words very quickly,
which is something our specialized version takes advantage of.
Always remember you are playing against a person, not a computer. This is where a good hangman cheat can pick up points.
In the real word, people have biases. They tend to pick words they think are hard or funny. They will often ignore words
they think are "too obvious". The goal of a good hangman cheat is to be slightly smarter than usual. Try to shave a point
or two off your score but not enough to be get caught. Remember to play the person and not the hand - if you see a word
which fits their personality or speach patterns, then go ahead and focus your guessing around that word. The best strategy
for a hangman cheat is to pursue small advantages. If you are 5% smarter most of the time, you will get away with it. If
you seek moments of blazing brillance, your days as a hangman cheat will quickly come to and end and
you'll have some 'splaining to do, Lucy.

of posts on the blog about strategy & some of the analytics we've done around this - particularly for picking the best
words (most difficult to guess).
