My holiday gift to readers this year is a simple Hangman game:
___ ___ ___ ___
If you'd like to play, email me your first move. I'll reply and we'll begin a thread that way.
There's no gallows here, and there's no limit to the number of guesses you can take. Just keep guessing letters until you guess the word. Try to solve the puzzle using as few guesses as possible.
Later I'll post the mystery word, and I'll say a few words about the principles I used to select it.
Until then, enjoy the holidays! All my best for a healthy and happy 2015.
