Bangman S&M Euro Rave puts a masochistic spin on the classic game of Hangman. Aluminum foil is attached to a player’s forehead and also affixed to a table (or any hard surface). Players bang their heads against the playing surface to indicate the letter they want to guess. One head-bang for ‘A’, and twenty-six for ‘Z’. An ear-splitting siren indicates whether the guessed letter was correct or not. To check their progress, players can flip a switch to hear their correct guesses played back in Morse code.
