Trends It Like Beckham

by: Becs

Players: 2+ Quizmaster required: Yes
Contestants must guess when various search terms peaked. Google Trends documents the popularity of search terms since January 1st 2004 to the present day, showing when they peaked. For example, 'John Robins' peaked in August 2017. A quizmaster will give contestants a name or phrase. They then have to guess which year and month that search term was at it's most popular. The closest answer in each round gets the point, if multiple contestants get it bang-on they all get a point.
