Hangman is a word or phrase guessing game for two or more players. One player will choose a secret word, and the other player(s) tries to guess that word by suggesting letters within a number of guesses. In this challenge, we are inviting you to extend the game UI for multiple categories and also customize your own secret words for each category instead of using "an-array-of-english-words" in the random.js file. Add clues for the respective secret words to guess the correct words. Kindly see below a sample solution kit to jumpstart your solution on creating Hangman Game.
