A Shavian word-guessing game you can play forever!

Guess the secret word, but written in Shavian.

Shingo! is a word-guessing game based on the TV show Lingo (and to some extent, its viral webapp ripoff Wordle).


You have 7 guesses to guess an English word written in Shavian. After each guess, each letter will be colored according to how close you were.


You can choose the number of letters in the word between 4 and 7 inclusive.


The words are taken from the Kingsley–Read Lexicon, with proper nouns filtered out and some missing words added.

The font is a modified version of Mikado by Hannes Van DΓΆhren (HVD Fonts). Shavian letters were designed and added by myself.

The legacy voice samples are produced by the voice synthesizer DECtalk, developed by Dennis Klatt and popularized by Moonbase Alpha and Stephen Hawking. (Look at the Wiki article—the picture has a cat for scale.)
