The goal is to create the longest phrase that Google can find by alternately adding one word to the end of the other player's search phrase. Say, the first person starts with "Feelings". Now the second person adds a word, "are", so we get "Feelings are"...

Now every time a word is added, the phrase is searched for in Google, and the resulting hit count is displayed. The one person who creates a sentence with zero results in Google loses and the last person who created a sentence with results in Google will get to start the next sentence.
Here's a sample game:

Bob: "Feelings" (53,200,000 results in Google)
Jane: "Feelings are" (2,100,000 results)
Peter: "Feelings are nothing" (1,090 results)
Susan: "Feelings are nothing and" (19 results)
Charles: "Feelings are nothing and we" (0 results)

If you create too obscure a sentence there won't be any hits and you will lose, but if your sentence gets too many hits, your opponent will also be able to create a sentence with hits. The basic strategy is to try to create sentences so silly that there are only a few hits, but not so silly there are no hits.

Added rule:
You may not cheat by looking at the results and creating the sentence that is in there. You need to be creative and come up with a word before searching.

I will check each add on to make sure the hits are correct and it would also be good for the next person to check too.


Reading this I thought I needed to make the next person have no hits at all.

But if you say so, krum, I'll change the word to "pi" - 443,000,000. I expected 314,159,265 results.

Even when you search with quotes you got to check because it will say something along the lines of no results for "pi the digits are the numbers" results shown for pi the digits are the numbers.

And to sonic it is true that you want the next perso. To get zero but you also want to see how long of a sentence you can make plus that is when you are adding a word not when it is the first word because that person could sit and put words with real low amounts to were the next person most likely will not get results since that doesn't make the game fun.
