In the first version of hangman, players turn the wooden knob to indicate their letter guess, then press the red button. In the case of a correct guess, small LEDs indicate the position of the letter in the word, and players keep track by picking one of the letters attached to the wires and placing it in its correct position. Incorrect guesses cause the counter to go down from a smiling face to a frowning face.
