Let's play Hangman!
The person who's 'it' will give you the number of letters in the word they're thinking of. You can then suggest letters that might be in it, one letter per post: you must wait for the word thinker to respond before guessing again. If you’re right, they'll fill in the letter in the word. If you’re wrong, then you lose a life. You only have 8 lives. Once they’re gone, they’re gone and the current person will start again with a new word.
You can guess what the word is at any point but if you’re wrong, you lose a life. If you’re right, then it’s your turn to come up with a word. If the word is completely spelled out, then the person who guessed the last letter takes over.
Note: If the person currently providing the word vanishes then you may restart the game with a new word of your own if they haven’t responded to you in 5 days.
The word is: ----- (5 letters)
Lives remaining: 8
