Thank you for checking out our site. This version of the hangman solver program is intended for use with the traditional versions
of the hangman word game (the version we played as 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.
If you are playing Zynga's Hanging With Friends game, check out the specialized version of the hangman solver
that we created which is optimized for that game. Zynga introduced several twists in the rules (which make it
easier) that our specialized hangman solver takes advantage of, allowing you to quickly eliminate many words.
Finally, 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).
