Happy Holidays, 2016

What it is

holiday2016 is a kid-safe game for 2016.

This game is hangman in reverse.

Whenever you guess a letter that's in the phrase, you decorate the tree and get more points.

If you guess a letter that's not in the phrase, you lose points.

The goal is to score points and guess the phrase.

The Christmas Tree always gets decorated.
