Government and Politics: Hangman Game

The hangman game below is comprised of 25 words taken from the 'Government and Politics' articles of our web site. These words correspond to those used in the crossword puzzle for this section. We hope you find this game enjoyable and educational.

Playing Instructions:

The order of the 25 words used in this game are shuffled each time it is played. The clue for each word is displayed in the game area and corresponds to those given in the crossword puzzles for 'Aboriginal Peoples'. You can begin by typing in letters on your keyboard.

Correct letters appear in the answer area, whereas incorrect letters appear toward the top of the playing area. You can make a total of six incorrect guesses. On the seventh incorrect guess you will be hung. At any time you can click on the 'Next Word' button to advance in the game.

You will notice that below the clue, the number of correct and incorrect words are tabulated as you proceed. Once you finish the 25 words, the playing area clears and the final statistics are displayed (Incorrect words, Correct words, Words skipped). At this time you have the option to try again, in which case the words are shuffled and the game is restarted.

  1. Head

  3. Right Arm
  4. Left Arm
  5. Right Leg
  6. Left Leg

Please Note:

The game loads necessary sound effects as they are needed. If you notice a momentary pause, it merely means that the game is loading one of the small sound files. (Sound files range from 1-4 Kb in size).

This game has been designed to work in conjunction with the crossword puzzle for 'Government and Politics'. If you complete this game you will be better equipped to tackle the crossword for this section.
