In Binary Hangman, players use the five buttons to input letter guesses in binary form (1 = A, 26 = Z) to find the randomly-chosen five-letter word. Audio and visual cues indicate correct or incorrect letters, previous guesses, remaining guesses, etc. Whiteboard squares allow players to keep track of their correct guesses.
