Ten Words Of Wisdom, or TWOW, is a competitive [[YouTube YouTube]] game created and by Cary Huang (carykh), of WebAnimation/BattleForDreamIsland fame, notable for its massive scale (It began with 491 contestants). The game is about answering various prompts (e.g. Write a haiku about plants) in 10 words or fewer. The responses have to be witty, poetic and funny, but a pun or two doesn't hurt. These responses are judged by viewers (which includes contestants) anonymously, eliminating the lowest ranked contestants.
