Most of us have probably played this game at one point or another, but you can ditch the chalkboard with Hangman Pro for smartphones and tablets. Play against the app’s artificial intelligence or a friend; you can even play it with the kids and family as the game features cartoonish, non-violent graphics (no worries when the stick man bites the dust). There’s no time limit to the game, but there’s a certain competitive (or rather survival) element involved, which makes it a great tool for vocabulary building between siblings.
The game features non-violent graphics so it’s suitable for children as well.
