Designing Hangman

Before we move on to the section of creating the game logic, we first need to figure out how the game will look for any player. There are two particular design components in this game:

  • The Hangman – We need to provide a visual aid to the player in the context of the hanging man.
  • Word Display – At the start of the game, the word must be displayed as blanks, instead of letters.

Hangman design

As we know, after every incorrect move, a new part of the hanging man’s body is displayed. To implement this, we store the body parts in a list.

The function that handles these hangman values is presented below:

The video below displays all the hangman states possible in the game. Each incorrect mistake adds a body part until the body is complete and the player loses.

All hangman states

The final state displayed in the video represents the hangman escaping the gallows after the player guesses the complete word.

The above function, 'print_hangman_win()' takes care of printing the escaped hangman when the player wins.

Word display

At the start of the game, only the blanks must be visible. After each player input, we must manipulate what needs to be displayed.

Initially, the list 'word_display' contains underscores for every alphabet in the hidden word. The following function is used to display this list.

Pick the game-play word

We use the inbuilt Python library, 'random' for picking a random word from the specific category list.

After picking the word, comes the game-logic section.

How do you hangman?

How do you make hangman fun? You can make the word more challenging by making it a short one with letters like Q, give hints so that they think about the meaning, give points for each time a letter is guessed correctly and take points away for each wrong guess, or let people who guessed correctly keep on guessing until they make a mistake.

How to Play Hangman

In the traditional version of Hangman, the object of the game is to guess the word before the stick figure character is fully drawn. In our version, you have to save the character by guessing the full word before all the balloons pop!

Learning how to play Hangman is easy! When playing traditionally, one person thinks of a secret word that the other person will try to guess. They display spaces to represent each letter of the word or phrase that they have in mind. Take note that proper nouns and slang words are not allowed!

The guessing player takes as many turns as they need to guess letters that might make up the word the other player has in mind. The guessing player keeps up until they either solve the word or phrase or until the character has all its parts drawn (or all the balloons pop!). 

The puzzle giver may not change the word or phrase that they have in mind throughout the game, and they will fill in correct letters to the applicable part of the puzzle. If a letter is guessed but doesn’t fit the puzzle, that letter is displayed so the guesser can keep track of what they have already said. 

For each incorrect letter, the puzzle giver also adds a body appendage to the character (or pops a balloon). The traditional appendages are made up of a head, body, two arms, and two legs. To make the game easier for the guesser, the puzzle giver can provide more tries by adding items like hair, hands, and feet to the character before deciding the game’s over. In our version, you’ll have a different amount of balloons to hang on to, depending on the difficulty you chose.

If the guessing player fills in the entire word or phrase before the character is drawn out, they win. The guesser can also win if they solve the word or phrase before all the letters are filled in. If the character is finished before either of these things happen, the puzzle giver wins.
