At one time or another, we’ve all wanted to ask a question that maybe we’re too embarrassed to ask our friends and family – so who do we turn to? The internet. We went browsing through every single one of these searches and boy, did we find some weird ones. Did dinosaurs go to heaven? Does the tooth fairy have a boyfriend? Has a monkey every touched a whale? The list goes on.
In fact, the list is so large that we decided to make a party game out of it. In Weird Things Humans Search For, your job is to predict the most popular endings to internet search engine questions. From memes to dinosaurs, pet frogs to sumo wrestlers, everyone’s bound to bring something to the table, no matter who they are.
To begin, one person is appointed as question master, and everyone else splits up into teams. The question master selects a card and reads out the first half of an internet search question. For example: “Is it embarrassing to…”. Teams get one minute to discuss and guess what the most popular endings are. They then write down two possible answers: one is a main guess and the other is a bonus guess.
When all teams have written down their guesses, the question master reveals the list of correct endings from the card. The higher your answer was on the list, the more points you’ll score for your team. Each team tallies up their points and then it’s on to the next round which a fresh card. The team with the most points after five rounds, wins.
Weird Things is ideal for a chilled night in with friends, and doesn’t go amiss with a few beers and snacks. Please note: having strange friends helps in this game… a lot.
