Google Feud

I’ve been reading quite a bit about Google Feud so decided to check it out myself.

It’s a reminder that there are so many smarter and more innovative people than me.  Period.

I’ve been a fan of the television show Family Feud for years.  Not to date my television viewing habits but I go back to the Richard Dawson years.  I mean, who hasn’t sat watching the show on television shouting answers in an attempt to score better than your spouse who was also riveted to the show.  And, there’s this Google thing that I’ve heard about.

Putting the two of them together yields a pretty amazing result, but the website is clear that it has no association with either.

The game is one player with a presentation similar to the television show.

The top 10 answers are pulled from the results that Google generates using autocomplete.  Your job is simply? to guess it.

Of course, you multi-tab users will know how to game the system.  But, that would take the fun out of it.

I can see this becoming a staple in waiting rooms or anywhere a good timewaster is needed.  All that’s missing is the humour and genius of Steve Harvey.

And, you can’t help but be impressed with the innovation of melding these two concepts together.  Consider it bookmarked here.
