Hangman, Aussie-style

Here's your chance to be a hero. Save a loud and obnoxious kangaroo from the gallows in this amusing variation of the game, "Hangman". The premise is simple if you've ever played Hangman, or have ever watched Wheel of Fortune — try to figure out a phrase by choosing different letters of the alphabet to fill in the blanks.

Hangaroo tries to be educational, and offers over 8500 terms and phrases in 120 different categories. There are even phrases which are in the form of "Did you know…?" facts. If all those possibilities aren't enough for you, you can create your own customized phrases and store them in external datafiles. The software developer will even upload your phrase database to the site so it can be shared with other users.

    I like it, it’s nearly addictive. I only wish I could edit the categories, as I’m clueless about Hall of Famers and have no interest whatsoever.

    Thanks!
