This module provides a useless IRC bot which enables you to play hangman, the classic word game. It comes shipped with a list of ~2000 english words by default. The architecture is plugin based, words, commands and responses can be extended at will by adding new modules.
The main motivation was to provide a multi-player text based game for children to help them practising writing.
The plugins are managed by
