I have bought 4 of these books to go in goody bags for my son's birthday. With at least 2 of them you cannot actually scratch out the circles to find the letters. We have tried with finger nails, coins, pen lids, etc., and it just doesn't work. None of the silver circle comes off at all and then if you scratch too hard it just goes through the paper completely. I don't know whether the other 2 books work as they have been given away as - quite possibly disappointing - goody bag gifts. If I could give it no stars I would.

HASH(0x9b406984) out of 5 stars My kids love this game--great for the car! 11 Jan. 2007
By Mother Goddess - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great little hangman book that requires only one person, a pencil to write with and a fingernail to scratch with. Each puzzle is set up as a scratch off game. My daughters each have a book and they love it. They scratch off a letter they think fits the hangman's puzzle. If they scratch the right letter, a number is revealed and they write that letter in the appropriate place in the puzzle's answer line. If they scratch a letter that is not part of the answer then they reveal a picture of a hangman's noose and need to complete a portion of the hangman picture. It is so easy and very fun!

HASH(0x9b4069d8) out of 5 stars Scratch and Solve Hangman? I THINK NOT! 25 Dec. 2008
By Finder - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was absolutely horrendous! Why buy this overpriced defective puzzlebook when you could buy something that actually works? The scratch off seals don't work. We tried a penny, a quarter, and our fingernails, and nothing worked. How hard could it be to make a scratch-off seal that actually scratches off? The people at the lottery have no problem doing it. Eventually, after my aunt and I tried just about every material known to man, the last thing that we tried was a metal nail file, and that still wasn't entirely successful-- it was extremely difficult to make even that work. This little tiny book cost $6.00! And it doesn't even work right! Why in the world would you spend $6.00 on a hangman game that doesn't even work? You could spend your money much more wisely. You can buy tons of stuff for $6.00. I absolutely loathe this game. I am taking it back. The only possible use for this book is as a firestarter. I hope you don't buy this game.

You're probably familiar with the game Hangman, but just in case you aren't, here's how it works with two people: an individual comes up with a word or phrase while the other must guess it. At the bottom of the page are blanks representing letters. As the player guesses the letters, they are written in the appropriate spot. However, if a wrong letter is guessed, a body part is drawn on the gallows. If an entire body is drawn before the phrase is guessed, the one doing the guessing loses.

In his clever Scratch & Solve Hangman, Mike Ward offers a neat twist on an old favorite. You know how instant lottery cards require you to scratch off the metallic finish to reveal what's underneath? That's exactly the way this book works.

For each of the 96 puzzles, there are three components:

*Silver eggs for A through Z

*A dotted-line stick figure on the gallows

*Numbered blanks at the bottom

Here's an example of how a puzzle works. For puzzle one in the Scratch & Solve Hangman #3, I guess the letter "E". When I scratch off the silver egg under "E", it shows the numbers 6 and 8. I go to the bottom of the page and fill in the letter "E" for blanks 6 and 8.

I then guess "R", which revealed a stick figure sticking his tongue out! This means that the letter "R" is NOT a part of solution. If I had revealed six of those faces--which indicates drawing in the head, arms, torso and feet of the body on the gallows--then I would have lost!

However, because I guessed the phrase (poached eggs) before I drew all six body parts, I win! (Admittedly, I had the head and both arms drawn in before I guessed it! Whew!)

This little book is very portable, providing amusement and distraction just about anywhere. Highly recommended if you love Hangman!

This is a really neat little book for a kid that's starting to play with letters. I would recommend this for a child that is reading, to expand their vocabulary and get more confident working with letters. I started out working the first few with my 7 year old, and then he was able to pick it up and work independently.
