What is MoWord?
Have you ever played the game where you make up a story with a group of friends
by taking turns saying one word at a time?
Well, it's kind of like that... but not exactly.
With MoWord, you make up a story one word at a time with the entire internet community!
To play, simply go to the Active Stories link, and choose one of the stories listed by
clicking the Enter Story button. Or if you prefer you can start a brand new story by
clicking the New Story button at the bottom of the Active Stories page.
Once you have entered a story, you can start playing right away by entering a word in the
Your word text box and clicking the Submit button (or just hit the Enter key
on your keyboard). Others who are participating in the same story can also enter words
(but each player may only add one word, and there are a maximum of 5 words per turn).
You will see the words appear next to the vote buttons above the Your word text box,
and you can vote for the word you like the best.
The only catch is that you have to be quick. As soon as someone enters a word a countdown
timer starts for that turn, and you only have until the timer runs out to add a word and/or
vote for your favorite word. Once the timer runs out, the word with the most votes is added
to the end of the story and all the other words are discarded.
The next turn begins as soon as someone enters a word, and as the process repeats itself a
story is created. The story can be serious, or strange, or silly, but keep in mind that
you have limited control over where a story will go, so go with the flow and enjoy
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
