Zynga gives you the last vowel for free AND only 4 strikes to guess the remaining 7 letters. In hangman, 8 letter words are often easy to guess since there are so many letters you can sometimes just get lucky and guess a correct letter and get another clue. But Zynga’s strike rule is extremely punitive for 8 letter words. As a result, 8 letter words are extremely difficult to guess, IF you can pick a good word like the ones below.
