The all new Hebrew game based on a traditional Hagman game.

The origins of Hangman are obscure, but it seems to have arisen in Victorian times,” says Tony Augarde, author of  “The Oxford Guide to Word Games” (Oxford University Press). The game is mentioned in Alice Bertha Gomme’s  “Traditional Games” in 1894  under the name “Birds, Beasts and Fishes.”

The rules are simple; a player writes down the first and last letters of a word for an animal, and the other player guesses the letters in between. In other sources the game is called “Gallows”, “The Game of Hangin'”, or “Hanger”. Hangman has featured in the 1978  Speak & Spell video game system under the name “Mystery Word” and is sometimes played today as a forum game.

In Hebrew Hangman you can play on your iPhone with Hebrew words in the following groups:

  • Numbers
  • Animals
  • Fruit
  • Human Body

After 6 wrong attempts you loose the game.
