    Widget suggestion: "Mad Libs" story game

    Asked by ksiads on October 28, 2015 at 01:51 PM

    Hi, JotForm:

    I was wondering if it's possible to create a form that simulates Mad Libs.  Perhaps something like this already exists in your archive, but I'd like to create a form where the user adds words such as "proper name", "noun", "verb", etc to create a finished story that they can save/print.


    If you know of a form like this I'd love to see an example.


    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Kevin,

    I am not sure if such a game would be implemented or not, but seems just as an interesting and fun project so I will raise this to our developers.

    However seeing how this is game and not directly related to the forms I do believe that this - if decided to be implemented - would be moved lower down on the list of things to do, but as soon (if) it is implemented we will notify you about the same through this thread :)

    Hi @ksiads & @Ben.

    I think the Confugurable List widget would work nicely on Mad Libs format.

    You could try using the Narrative Fields Widget. You can use the placeholder text to add hints to the blank spaces that the form user needs to fill out - then submit/print.

    Let us know if this helps.
