I have a need to share whatever literary games I find in my travels across the internet. They're practically my brand language at this point.
So, fellow word nerds, today I bring you Contexto.
It's a word association game where you start with a random word. You then try to get the word of the day based on its degree of separation with your guess. The lower the number, the closer you are.
The similarity between the words is decided by an artificial intelligence algorithm, so the trick is to keep making the most obvious, sweeping connections and you should be good.
Guesses are unlimited, but I've made it a personal point to identify the word within 100 guesses. Because why make life easy when you can make it fun and challenging?
Now, you try it too and tell me how many guesses it took you!
