so easy, everyone's going to guess the word after their first guess @NoelBryan

Yeah! I’ve never seen an easier word to figure out. @myatkaunghtet

Add in "Sesquipedalianism!" It describes those with an affinity for long words.

Add "deoxyribonucleic"

@mgher Deoxyribonucleic acid is better (full name for DNA)

@ipastrano Yes, add super long words that no one knows about to make the game more fun and challenging!

@DynamicSquid In my opinion, the shorter words are more difficult since it takes so many guesses to get just a small part of the word, but the longer ones, while easier, are definitely more fun.

@AmazingMech2418 because "deoxyribonucleic" is a common word easily found in children's books, and can be remembered right off the bat with easy spelling and pronou- this is the hardest game of hangman I have ever played lol

A word to add: googolplexian

@CodeABC123 Why is everyone suggesting super long words!?? lol

What about METHIONYLTHREONYLTHREONYGLUTAMINYLARGINYL … ISOLEUCINE? It’s the longest word in the world, 18,000 letters. It also takes 3 hours to pronounce. @DynamicSquid

@CodeABC123 I'm sorry did you says 3 hours? As in there are 24 hours in a day?

Evanlicious (18)

Technically, can't you just call it titin?

Looks really nice! I suck at hangman tho... Good use of text art, and works very quickly too.
