Are you looking for a fun way to learn new words in Spanish? If so, try playing one of our new hangman games, known in Spanish as el ahorcado. (Incidentally, the name of the game in Spanish refers to the person hanged rather to the executioner.)

Each of the games listed below includes about 20 words selected at random each time you play. You must have JavaScript enabled in your browser to play the games (most browsers are set up that way).

Good luck!
