Having been told repeatedly about not using a hangman game, I wanted to be able to use such a useful tool without putting anyone out. In my classes, from primary to lower secondary, I use Manga Hangman! Rather than hanging someone, I'll draw a picture, such as a ship. Each wrong letter has more and more people on the ship, with the water rising. Eventually, the people drown and a Giant Octopus eats them! Other great ideas include Lightening Hits the Shrine, Tied to the Shinkansen Tracks, and the evergreen Titanic. The students seem genuinely entertained and interested. Kit Japan.
