EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Autocomplete is best played with two teams, although you can play as individuals if there are 5 or less people. Some sort of scoring pad or paper is needed. One person for each round, the Reader or Judge, picks a card and reads the phrase, then flips the minute timer .Then anyone can guess, and no penalties for wrong guesses. Each correct guess gives that team or person a point. The judge also has the discretion to award points that are "close" enough to the correct answer.  

At the end of the round, you're supposed to announce the winner, which doesn't serve any purpose. An amendment to the rules we came up with is the winner of the round gets a bonus point. The reader or judge changes for every round

Winner is who gets the most points after 10 rounds, but players can pick any amount of rounds to play.

There are variations that you can play to increase the difficulty if you'd like. For example, you can play each team only gets 3 guesses per round or the team hears the autocompletes and have to guess the search phrase.


Is It Fun?

If you spent some time searching on Google, and you like games, this game is fun.  There are some tweaks in the rules needed, but the fun comes from the creativity of those playing.  Some of the answers are shocking as to  what people actually search for. The play itself is easy and the rules are pretty simple






Who It’s For

This is a party game for adults. This game is age graded 18+ because some of the content might not be appropriate for younger kids. That being said, not much in here that high school kids don't say.
