Chinese Hangman in .NET

As I was driving home this morning, I was thinking about localization issues for different situations.  I realised that it must be really hard to have certain word games, like hangman, in some Asian languages like Chinese or Korean (shouldn't be a problem in Japanese, so long you stick to the alphabets).  So, without further ado, I sat down and wrote a very simple Chinese Hangman game.

There is only one word because I'm lazy and wrote this in 20 minutes and didn't feel like putting a real word library in.  Maybe for v1.1.  “Chinese” is somewhat misleading.  In fact, I used Korean to get the characters, since I suck at the Chinese IMEs, and didn't feel like using my digitizer.

Since it's written in .NET, you can play online, just by clicking here (32K)!

Update:  Some of my slower friends have given me feedback that this game is hard, since you have to guess the exact word.  That's the point.  The game is just a joke.  That's all.  Don't actually expect to play it (although it is fully functional!).
