Back to Basics: Play Hangman!

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

I've been so tired these past few days that I literally would like to hang myself and chill for a while. Pressures from both work and at home is getting to me somehow and I need a break. Most probably I need something to stimulate my mind. I think I'd probably go back to the basics and play hangman instead.

I know I played this when I was a kid. In elementary, it was just a pen and paper that I had to have before this great game starts. My classmates would often be the one to get words from a dictionary then have me guess it and probably give me little clues along the way. These days it became a little harder much like Jeopardy answers and old English words most of the time. I know I've been a geek once or twice in a lifetime but this one made me sharper I think when I needed it most.

In college I often join competitions and quiz shows in school that tackle general information. If its about anything under the sun then I should probably know that by heart. The training I got from hangman games made it possible for me to become comfortable in what the contest was asking for. That really gave me the confidence to look at it easily because apparently the guessing part in the hangman game I played before was way harder than the contests I joined in. Pretty soon, I already have championed 3 or 4 of them in a span of 3 years. That's remarkable because I knew the questions by heart and from the vocabulary I was chewing off even when I was a kid. I'm glad I played this game so I highly recommend it to people who would like to have their kids or themselves to be smart and not just intelligent. There's really a big difference that it would make so why not take the hangman advantage. Check out and play it now!
