SOLITAIRE HANGMAN

As in the two-player version of Hangman, the object of this solitaire challenge is to guess a word before being “hanged.” To begin, choose any letter that you think might appear in word I below. Suppose you pick E. Go to the Letter Chart on the facing page and find the number listed in row E of Column I (because you are working on word I). The number is 47; you now look in box number 47 in the Position Chart (to the right of the Letter Chart) and locate the number 7. This means the letter E occurs in the seventh position (and nowhere else) in word I. If a letter occurs more than once in a word, the Position Chart will show all its locations.
If you find from the Position Chart that a letter appears in position 0, then that letter does not appear in the word. As a penalty for an incorrect guess, you must draw part of a stick figure below the scaffold beside the blanks. On your first incorrect guess, draw the head; on the second, the body; and on the next four, the arms and legs. If you complete the figure (that is, make six incorrect guesses) before identifying the word, you are “hanged.”
If you can identify 8 of the 12 words before being hanged, either you’re psychic or you have a remarkable gift for words.
