YAGPG (Yet Another Google Party Game)

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

(or: Guess Dr. Lucky)

This one's like Hangman. The Searcher picks some word and googles it and any number of Guessers guess the top result. I think category guesses, e.g., "a band" or "a furniture store", are perfectly all right. If you're going to give out points, then consider giving out a little something for guessing the number two or number three sites. Winning Guessers become Searchers, or something. Devise your own variants.
