The Creativity Games Random Word Generator is a funky tool that will allow you to generate random lists of words. These can be used for many purposes (see below). The brilliant thing about this generator is that you can create your own lists of words to select randomly from and you can easily share them with others.
Creating and Managing Lists
To create your own lists of words you need to have an account with Creativity Games. This is free and only takes a few seconds to complete. If you already have an account you can sign in with the form on the right. If you don't have an account yet you can Register here.
Once you're signed in you'll notice that at the bottom left of the Generator is a dropdown of all your current lists as well as the option to Manage lists. If you click on Manage lists you will be taken to a page listing your current lists. From here you can create new lists, delete lists and update existing lists.
Using and Sharing Lists
Once you have your lists set up you'll no doubt be keen and eager to start using them. The easiest way to do this is to select the list you want to use from the dropdown in the bottom left of the screen. All future actions will now utilise this list until you select Clear at the bottom right.
Now those of you with an eye for detail would have noticed that when you select a list to use, it changes your URL slightly. (For those of you that missed it, pay more attention next time.) The magic is all to do with the code that gets inserted after generator in the URL. You can give anyone a URL with that code in the right place and they will end up using your list. Brilliant.
Example: Let's say for instance you have just created your list and you end up with a code for that list which is vgephn. Whereas normally the url for generating 4 random words would look like :
Ok, So Why Would I Want to do This?
The Random Word Generator can be used for many purposes as you would have seen on the main page for the generator. When used in combination with your own lists however we can do some interesting things. Here are some ideas to get the ball rolling but use your creativity and I'm sure you'll come up with plenty more.
