Play Family Fortunes With Google

We asked 100 people for their favourite internet distractions, our survey said... 

Mercifully free of the Colgate smile of Les Dennis, Google Feud is a web-based game that allows you to play Family Fortunes (known as Family Feud in the US) from your browser.

The game works by harnessing the power of the Google API, using the search engine's autocomplete results to fuel the game's "survey" answers.

Start by choosing a category, such as 'Question'. You must complete the Google-style search bar with the most-likely phrase you believe the autocomplete system would provide for the query. For instance, when asked "why are dogs...", Google's autocomplete is most likely to return a result of "better than cats". 

A great deal more challenging than the Family Fortunes surveys, it provides a revealing insight into just how mindless most of our Google searches are. Play it here.
