The Google Auto-Complete Board Game Exposes America's Inquiring Minds

Google's auto-complete search terms give us a great insight into the inner workings of the American psyche, exposing our collective preoccupations, fetishes, fears, and concerns, which are almost never uttered between people. But by using Google as our collective middleman to curate the madness, you can be thoroughly entertained. Piggybacking on the endless reservoir of human insecurity, Query the Game exports the auto-complete to a hilarious board game.

In gameplay, the participants try to pick the actual auto-complete answer that the dealer selects from the cards, and not the fake responses written by their fellow participants. For every answer you get right, you advance one step towards the finish line on the board.

Like we said, there really is endless content.
