Review of Knoword.org
If you're looking for a way to train your brain, improve your vocabulary or simply want to play a word game, there is a site that let's you do that. This site is called Knoword.org.
Knoword is a game where you are given a definition and the first letter of the word. You must guess the word that matches that definition. If you are correct, you are given 20 points and you'll then be given another word to guess. If you continue to get the correct answer without skipping any of the definitions, you'll increase your word streak and gain additional points.
If you decide to skip the word however, you'll lose 10 points and the answer will be shown to you and you'll move onto the next definition. You have 60 seconds to guess the words to as many definitions as possible. When those 60 seconds is up, you'll be shown the results and you can play again.
Getting an account is optional on the site but if you do decide to create an account, you'll be able to keep track of your records and you can then try to set a new score for yourself. If you're good enough, you may even be recorded on the site's ranking system!
This was very beneficial to me because I was able to learn new words that I may not be familiar with or be fond of at all. It also trains your brain to be able to associate words with their meanings and make connections. Perhaps it will be beneficial to you too and you'll have some fun playing it.
Knoword is also out on the iTunes store and if you want to play it on your iPod, you can get it from the store and play it anywhere now.
As a conclusion, I recommend trying this site out if you're bored or want to play a word game, you can go to Knoword!
