Created by Toronto-based sisters Phoebe Stephens and Nikki Flowerday, Query challenging players to complete ‘searches’ by choosing one of their own crafted answers.

“Query is a party game where players can earn points for identifying the top internet search predicitons and for folling others into choosing their well crafted answers,” explains the Query website.

“It’s great in a family or more adult social setting.”
