Day 15: Hangman?

Not feeling like writing much today either. It’s been a tough day.

Making a hangman solving program would be pretty cool. I guess its sort of like an anagram solver in reverse, if that makes sense. We don’t have the word, we are trying to create the word based on a few known letters. Determining what letters are most common in certain positions and finding patterns of words (“ing”, “ed”, “ion”) would be helpful. Compare the current game state with a dictionary to make guesses about the word. Not really a fleshed out idea. Probably coming back to this one.

I think its interesting to think of how we can implement computer programs to “solve” different types of games.
