Have you been itching to do a word war but can’t find other people to do one with?
Try a crawl instead!
A word crawl is a type of word sprint that collects a number of word wars, prompts, and sprints into one challenge. Generally themed, participants are encouraged to complete each portion of the challenge in order. Many of these challenges take the form of a choose your own adventure-style story, giving participants mini-rewards in the form of the progression of the story or punishments for failures. They may also be referred to as pub crawls, a reference to the real life activity of the same name from which the word crawls are derived.
So, the way this thread will hopefully work is that your fellow users and I will post challenges using typical words associated with word crawls. It’s up to you to challenge yourself to complete them.
Let me know if you have any questions!
