UCLA adds extreme pain to the game of hangman

Another day, another spin on hangman from the kind kids at UCLA’s Game Lab:

This game takes hangman and adds ear-splitting sirens and physical pain. Players attach the aluminum foil mask to their heads/faces and input letter guesses by banging their head against whatever they choose to place the foil sheet on – a table, a wall, etc. One head-bang is an A, twenty-six head-bangs is a Z. Feedback on a correct or incorrect guess comes by way of a piercing siren, or if players need to hear the letters they have already guessed, they can flip a switch to hear Morse code of their correct guesses loudly played back.

Heaven help the person who has to guess the word “zyzziva.”
