Kill Time with Google Feud

No comments

For those who don’t know, I’m a huge fan of Safiya Nygaard. Her content never compromises quality, so even though she only uploads a new video every so often, the wait is always worth it because you’ll watch well-researched, well-edited, and well-delivered content.

Recently, she and her husband, Tyler Williams, created a new Youtube channel, Safiya & Tyler, where they livestream about random things every Tuesday, 5pm EST. Today’s stream was about Google Feud.. that I didn’t even know existed. It was initially released in 2013.

It follows the same rules as Family Feud where you make intelligent guesses according to a specific category or topic. The difference is that you’re completing the sentence for the Most Searched on Google instead of the pulse from a sample size of people.

The game is free and lets you choose from four categories: Culture, People, Names, Questions.

Some of it are boring, others are pretty clever. You’ll be surprised at some of the things people actually search for. It sounds easy, but it’s pretty challenging. Some of it would never even cross my mind. You can of course cheat, but that defeats the purpose of the game. It’s a fun activity to do when you have down time in between meetings, before going to sleep, or some brain activity to stimulate your mind.

After a couple of rounds, my highest score is only 70k. I would love to top it of course. Safiya and Tyler got 98,000 with the help of their streaming audience. Unfortunately I can’t find any record of top score but would be nice to know too!

Try it out and let me know how it goes!
