Hangman Game with Python

The Hangman game is very much like the popular number guessing game among programmers. In this article, I will take you through how to create a Hangman Game with Python.

Understanding the Hangman Game

In the hangman game, one player thinks of a word and the other players have to guess the word letter by letter. Whenever the guessed letter is correct, the player who decided on the word will indicate the position of the letter.

To build the Hangman hame with the Python programming language, you need to use basic Python concepts like the random module, integers, strings, characters, input and output operations, and Boolean values.

Hangman Game with Python

The logic of creating the Hangman game with python is that we will have users who will guess a letter and all users will have a very limited number of guesses.

So to code this game with Python, you can create a wordlist from which users can think of the words. In the process, we will also need some helper functions to check if the user entered a single letter or if the letter entered by the user is in the hidden word.

To create the hangman game, I will start by making a list of secret words, then start choosing words at random. In the process, I’ll just represent each word as “_” and whenever the user guesses the correct word, I’ll replace the “_” with the correct word. Now let’s follow this logic to create the hangman game with Python:
