The New York Times Partners with Google for Trivia Game

The New York Times has partnered with Google to launch A Google A Day, a trivia game that actually encourages you to use the search engine to solve one question per day.

According to Google, the questions will post about the crossword puzzle each weekday in the Times, as well as on the site. Just like the Times crosswords, the questions get more difficult as the week goes by.

To avoid accidentally finding the answers, players are told to use the Google search on the trivia game’s site. The answers are revealed the next day in the paper and on A Google A Day.

It’s a pretty cool idea. Try and find the answer to today’s question (above) without using Bing which would totally be cheating so no we didn’t just do that.
