The origin of Hangman is very strange and sad at the same time. In the 17th-18th century, criminals who were sentenced to death could use a power to set them free which was known as “Rite of Words and Life”. According to that, the criminal used to strung up over a 5 legged table. And there would be a board with short ropes, each rope would represent one word. The executioner would choose a word and the criminal would have to guess that. So, the executioner would write the correct word in those dashes, and incorrect guesses would be kept aside. For each wrong guess, the executioner would break one leg of that stand or table. If five of the guesses are wrong, then the criminal would be hanged. If the sentenced can guess that correctly, then he would be free.
