The Find: a new board game based on Google’s often hilarious search predictions

People have a tendency to ask the internet some pretty weird questions, which is why Google’s autocomplete technology sometimes comes up with absurd options. (Here’s one of our favourites.) A pair 0f Toronto sisters have capitalized on the oddly revealing function by creating Query, a board game based on 600 of the most commonly Googled questions in major cities across North America. The game, which recently had its launch party at Snakes and Lattees, is kind of like a digital-age Balderdash, except instead of guessing definitions to words, players are tasked with identifying the real endings to various search queries, and tricking other players with their own made-up choices. Based on the positive early reviews, it could make an entertaining alternative to Cards Against Humanity—which isn’t quite as much fun once you’ve memorized the deck. $30
