Tabula Magica is a completely animated hangman game on a classic chalkboard. The letters and the drawing appear as hand-written, even with the appropriate chalk sound. There are 2 alternative animations available if you don't like to see people hanging and you can even draw your own (in the registered version).
Play against a huge wordlist of over 20,000 entries or a friend, you can enter the word to guess manually if you want. Type your letters in or use the Mac OS X speech recognition and the ICAO-alphabet (Alpha, Beta, Charlie...) It's a great way to learn it. Create your own wordlist (in the registered version). Relax while scribbling on the blackboard in the "Doodle Mode" or leave messages to friends and family on your Desktop.
Tabula Magica contains wordlists with english and german words.
