You've got to be hard as nails to tackle the challenging brainteasers in Hip Pocket Tough Hangman. Each puzzle has the 26 letters of the alphabet accompanied by scratch-off silver circles. Pick a letter, rub off the circle, and find out if the letter is in the puzzle and where. Six misses means you were not tough enough . . . and must hang!
