Think of a word
Pick one person to be the executioner. That person should think of a word or phrase for the other person to guess.
Draw a scaffold
Draw a "scaffold" on the paper. Below it, the executioner draws a short dash for each letter of the word or phrase; being sure to include a gap or slash between words.
Guess the letters
Have the other person guess which letters are in the word or phrase, one at a time.
Show whether the guessed letters are in the answer
If the letter is part of the answer, the executioner writes it in each space that corresponds with the answer. If the letter is not in the answer, a body part of a stick figure is drawn attached to the scaffold.
Declare a winner
Keep guessing and adding body parts until the executioner wins by finishing the body or the guesser wins by completing the answer.
