Hello all,

I like the Hangman game, it is the only word game in the game center and there is no betting of game chips, so little risk, therefore it is an attractive game for beginners.

I would like to make hangman less mystifying for people who are not complete Pokenerds.

Would it be possible to increase the amount of guesses to 10 instead of six?

I think a round number would be more fair.

Would it also be able to create hint categories for each word?

I mean like "Pokemon", "Item", "Person", "Place" or "Other".

I ask for this because I like the game but have only recently started playing because of the new Dream Shop configuration and I would like more people to play Hangman as well.

Interesting, though I wouldn't mind any changes. There's various lists of all possible answers for a given number of letters, so you can go to those. Though one change I would like for Hangman is increasing the rewards for it. Though then again, with the list and hours of patience, you might get a pretty nice streak.

I like the idea of a 'hint', because the words can either be something that only exists at PokeHeroes or general Pokémon related words.

The thing is, though, that there are situations where those hints won't work.
Even if you tell them 'pokémon', users will still have to guess between 'Wigglytuff' and 'Jigglypuff' or 'Natu' and 'Xatu', so if you're on your last check, that hint might frustrate rather than help.

Depending on your strategy, 6 guesses is more than enough. You just have to know where to start ^^'

However, the normal Hangman gives you more guesses [each limb has their own guess], so I'm not really against increasing the amount of guesses to be more like the actual game. Hints I'm still gonna pass.
