Or say "Alexa, enable Easy Hangman"

A game of hangman with an increasing level of difficulty and card images to help you play.

Alexa will think of a word and will tell you its first letter and how many letters are in it. Then you will take turns trying to guess it. In each turn, you will guess a letter and Alexa will tell you whether the letter is in the word or not. If the letter is not in the word you will lose a life. If you lose all your lives before you guess all he letters of the word it's game over. After each guess, Alexa will send a card to your Alexa app with and image to help you track your progress and remaining lives.<br /><br />In the beginning, Alexa will choose short nouns and verbs but it will select increasingly difficult words as you progress. Also, feel free to ask for a clue or a hint any time you need one. You can also say: help me to get more instructions while playing.<br /><br />If you are having trouble spelling some letters, feel free to use words from the phonetic alphabets (alpha, bravo, Charlie, delta, echo, Frank...) or tell Alexa a word starting with the letter you are trying to guess. For example, if you want to check if the letter E is in the word you can say:<br />- Guess E.<br />- Check for the letter E.<br />- Echo.<br />- E as in Elephant.
