Snowman - a Christmas version of my Javascript Hangman word game

Ho Ho Ho! Let's celebrate the Christmas season with a festive themed version of the popular word game Hangman. I've picked some words associated with (or inspired by) Christmas for you to guess. Have fun!

Try my Christmas Pairs Javascript game too!

Instructions

Can you guess the word? Click the 'new game' button to start and then choose a letter at a time - either by clicking on it above, or by pressing its letter on the keyboard.

For each wrong guess, another layer of the snowman is built. It's game over if the snowman's finished before you've worked out the word.

Do you have a favourite hard-to-guess word related to Christmas that I should include in this game? Email me your word suggestions.

You can also play my non-themed version of the Hangman word game here. If you want to learn how to make a version of Hangman, check out my book Scratch Programming in Easy Steps. It shows you how to make a Hangman game using the Scratch programming language.

License Hangman for your website

Games are a popular way to make your site more 'sticky' so that visitors stay longer and have a memorable experience they will return to repeat. This implementation of this game has been named in London's Metro daily newspaper as being among their picks of top word games.

You can license a customised version of Hangman for your own site, including:

  • Custom word list of up to 200 words, perhaps thematically linked to your website's content
  • Integration of your custom hangman strokes
  • Integration of your custom alphabet design

To discuss details and pricing, please contact me, telling me your website address. Please note that unauthorised reproduction of this game and my other games is prohibited.
