HANGMAN requires a 64K or larger IBM Personal Computer (96K or
larger under DOS 2.0 and later operating systems) with one disk
drive and an 80-column display.


The first step is to create a working disk combining the files from
the enclosed HANGMAN disk together with several files from the DOS
disk. This working disk will automatically execute HANGMAN whenever
it is booted.

1) Boot the DOS disk in Drive A and place a blank disk in Drive B
(if you have only one disk drive you will have to switch the
disks back and forth as described in your DOS manual).

Then type FORMAT B:/S

This operation will format the blank disk in Drive B and
transfer the core of the DOS Operating System.

2) Remove the DOS disk and place the enclosed HANGMAN disk in
Drive A.

Then type COPY *.* B:

This operation will copy the contents of your original HANGMAN
disk onto the working disk.

Once you have completed Step 2 you will have a working disk which
will boot with the HANGMAN game. To run HANGMAN, put the working
disk in Drive A, press Ctrl-Alt-Del and in a few seconds you'll be
off and running.


Users may copy HANGMAN and distribute it for trial use by others on
a private, non-commercial basis. The following conditions apply:

1. The programs and data files are not modified in any way.
2. Programs and data files are not distributed separately.
3. No fee is charged for copying or distribution.

SLEUTH is an interactive murder mystery. As a game of SLEUTH begins, a murder
has just been committed. It is your job to explore the house (which is
displayed on the screen), to question the houseguests for their alibis, and to
locate both the murder weapon and the scene of the murder. The challenge of
SLEUTH is to solve the crime, gather all of the suspects together, and accuse
the guilty party before the killer gets suspicious of your investigation and
eliminates you from the game. Each game of SLEUTH is different from the last,
so you must always explore the house fully before you can solve the murder.
Also, to make things more interesting, you can choose a 'Personalized' option
which allows you to populate the house with your friends and acquaintances.
Price: $20.

HANGMAN for the SUPERINTELLIGENT. The traditional Hangman game with a few
twists. This game provides four levels of play:
1) Basic Hangman provides you with a secret word which you must guess by
selecting letters of the alphabet. Your only clue is that you know in
advance how many letters are in the word.
2) Educational Hangman. In this variation of Hangman you no longer know the
number of letters in the word. Your only clue is a brief definition of the
word which is displayed on the screen. Ideal for building your vocabulary.
3) Literate Hangman is stocked with famous sayings and quotations from
throughout the ages. Your only clue is the author of the phrase.
4) Personalized Hangman. If you are playing Hangman with two or more players
you can select your own words and phrases to try to stump your friends.
HANGMAN for the SUPERINTELLIGENT is stocked with over 1000 words and phrases
selected to provide a challenge for accomplished players. This game is
definitely not for children. Price: $20

BASIC HANGMAN. This version of Hangman is identical to HANGMAN for the
SUPERINTELLIGENT except that the words are somewhat less esoteric and the

your knowledge of a foreign language. Words and phrases can be presented
either in English or in foreign translation (with clues provided in the
opposite language). Currently available with Spanish and French vocabularies.

using this utility program which allows you to enter your own words or phrases
for use by the HANGMAN program. Please specify whether you need the utility
program for English Language Hangman (HANGMAN for the SUPERINTELLIGENT;
