    I was recently asked what the best word would be if you were playing Hangman. My response was syzygy. Gets them every time.

    Got any more for me?

    Yeah, okay, that's true :D

    Quiz is a pretty hard word though.

    It's also been widely acknowledged that it was basically made up to be a big word for something that was already named. Not that it's not a good word, but as you pointed out the size of the word doesn't necessarily make it a good Hangman word.

    I've heard about lynx being a good word before, so how about taking it a step further with larynx? lol

    Uncopyrightables (yes, it is a real word) or better yet:

    ACETYL­SERYL­TYROSYL­SERYL­ISO­LEUCYL­TH - 16 unique letters,
    PNEUMONO­ULTRA­MICRO­SCOPIC­SILICO­VOLCA - 15 unique latters
