How Do You Play Wordner?
Wordner is a creative word game where players finish prompts by building off of starter words. There are three ways to play:
Everyone is shown a blue prompt card and an orange starter card. One player is randomly selected as the judge.
The other players finish the prompt by creating a phrase that uses one or more starters (rule variations below). Each response is called a "wordner." These are submitted anonymously for the judge to read.
Creating A Wordner
In the example on the right, players complete the prompt "I saw a new science fiction movie called..." using the words "Butter," "Fast," or "Sew."
Using these, they might come up with:
- Butter Star Galactica
- Run Faster! The Aliens Are Coming!
- It Came From The Sewer
Once all the wordners are submitted, the judge selects his/her favorite and the player who wrote it receives a point.
A new player then becomes the judge, and the next round begins. The first player to reach a specified number of points wins!
Wordner can be played three different ways.
Traditional: Use One Starter
Players complete the prompt with a phrase that uses one or more of the starter words.
Challenging: Use All Starters
Players are required to use all three starter words in a phrase that completes the prompt.
Crazy: Anything Goes
Players complete the prompt using any, all, or none of the starters.
