Activity and game information for parents and teachers
A fun Hangman-style word game
Try this app by clicking one of the Activities below.
The object of Billboard is to solve as many puzzles as possible. You can get up to 600 points for each puzzle you solve!
The puzzle is displayed as a set of blanks on the Billboard. Each blank represents a letter from the alphabet. Your job is to fill in all the blanks and solve the puzzle. At the top of the Billboard is a clue. It can be helpful in solving the puzzle.
You begin with six chances. Each time you guess a letter not found in the puzzle, you lose a chance, and your score for completing the puzzle is decreased. When you run out of chances, the game ends.
You make a guess by clicking one of the letters which appear across the bottom of the Billboard. When you guess a letter, it is removed from the screen.
Here is a list of activities that use the Billboard app:
