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?

Its in the dictionary... its a real word. Its the largest word in the English language in a dictionary.
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.
