Steal This Idea: Google Board Game

Comments (10)

I'd like to play a board game that requires you to hone your skills with Google and Wikipedia. Perhaps Trivial Pursuit has already made something like this, but if not, they should. Basically, you're given an obscure thing to look up online, and the first one to find it gets to move their piece forward one square or two squares or whatever.

I don't really care how points are tallied or any of that nonsense. I just have mad Google skillz that are waiting to be flaunted in a board game setting. Internet, get on this, please.

I used to play a wikipedia game when I was bored. You think of two seemingly-unrelated topics (such as ornaments and cows), and, starting at the ornament article on Wikipedia, you click through links to other articles until you arrive at the cows article. It's actually kind of fun!

Niiice. And that one doesn't even require the creation of a board game!

Well, I think FetsManna there has the right idea. I mean, what better game than finding free stuff on the internet?!? Especially when it's something you usually have to pay for.

It could be called...Pirates of Interzants!

Ha, well, I guess I can't delete the spam comment NOW. Thanks, Tyler. :)

There's already another game that actually has a monetary reward based on how long you play and how accurate you answer. It's called "ChaCha." =D

OK, it's not a game, it's a job. But whatever. =)

No, but you can change the URLs in the links to go to Tiny Plaid Ninjas or something.

Google. Board game. Google. Board game. You know, I don't think those go together.

The issue with board games is that you only have a limited number of options for possible search queries. If you're going to have a deck of cards to choose from, sooner or later you're going to know where to find information on all of those (and/or bookmark them in advance ;) ). Support: At one point, I had every card to MindTrap memorized and would spontaneously spout the questions off for others to answer.

(And we already know that your Google skills are no match for mine. ZING!)

Maybe players would have to find the answers to predetermined questions in 3 clicks or less :-D

Well, it isn't a board game, exactly. It hardly even qualifies as a game. But there once was this thing, and well...

...oh nevermind.

The Stone. Yes. That was it. It was a necklace. Or a game. Or both. Google said so. You'd have been good at it. Or not. It might have drove you crazy.

It worked for me.

Kind of spooky, too.
