Someone turned Google's autocomplete feature into an addictive game

Good luck tearing yourself away from this one.

GOOGLE CAN SUGGEST some pretty strange things when you’re typing in a search query, but someone has turned it into an addictive game.

Google Feud turns these search suggestions into its own little game. Presented with four categories (Culture, People, Names and Questions), your job is to figure out what the most popular search queries are.

You’ve only three chances to get the ten correct answers for each search query and score as many points as possible.

The closer you get to the top answer, the more points you get and it’s not exactly easy to get them all right (some of the answers are rather bizarre or cruel depending on what’s being asked).

Still, it’s strangely addictive and if you’re having a quiet night in after St Patrick’s day, your evening is sorted.
