The game called HangMan is a 2 player (or more) word game. One player selects a word from the dictionary, and the other (or others) should find it out by suggesting letters of the alphabet. If the proposed letter is in the word, then its position is revealed. The guessing player is allowed N errors (usually 8 or 10), and in the classic version of the game, the first player draws, for each incorrect guess, part of a character attached to a gallows. When the drawing is complete (after N portions of drawings corresponding to the N errors) the player loses.
To win at the game hangman (or HangMan), the optimal strategy is to give the most frequent letters based on those already found.
dCode, with this hangman help/cheat tool/solver calculates statistics about letters the most frequently uses in possible words and suggest the most probable, ie. the optimal one.
Example: The game S-L-ER has for appropriate solutions the words SOLVER, SOLDER or SILVER.
Letters O or V are the most probable (present in 2 of 3 possible words).
If the word is not in the dictionary, the software cannot help. In this case, a tip is to start by placing the vowels.
By default, when playing hangman game, when a player guesses a letter, then if the word contains several copies of this letter, then they are all revealed to him. A classic variant is not to reveal them all, but only one per proposal.
Example: In this variant, if the word has 2 letters E, the player will have to propose twice the letter E to reveal both of them.
In English, based on the frequency analysis of the letters, the letter E is the most frequent for any game up to 20 letters. For the words of lengths that are superior to 20 letters, try E or S to start.
The software will propose optimal letters for a game, and check how many tentatives are wrong with this optimal technique.
In the game, the more detailed the gallow and the character, the more the player has the right to make mistakes.
Most often the drawing has 10 elements: the gallows is cut into 4 elements: 1 base, 1 vertical pole, 1 horizontal bar, then a rope, and finally a character generally broken down into 6: head, body, left arm, right arm, left foot, right foot.
