I was bored today, messing around with http://www.google.com/trends i tried with this two terms: boardgame, videogame --> http://www.google.com/trends?q=boardgame%2C+videogame&ctab=2...

And its funny to see that almost everywhere (if you look by languages) boardgames win the match... i thought videogames would kill boardgames but its not.

But there are some languages that disturbs me.

Ok, videogame in english is far more searched than boardgame... but italian??? what's up with italy, they are obsessed with videogames.

Also what's up with german people??? i thought germany was the place for boardgames! but videogame wins again (with boardgame close)


Anyway in the overall videogame wins without problem but i think videogame would win only with the italian people searches

Also notice that the boardgame searches seem to spike at the end of each year. (sarcasm) Me wonders why (/scarcasm).

And you know a Google fight is accurate because Beta beats VHS 743M to 337M!

Some are born to move the world To live their fantasies But most of us just dream about The things we'd like to be Sadder still to watch it die Than never to have known it For you, the blind who once could see The bell tolls for thee...

Try using "board game". The results are much closer. More or less valid? I don't know.

I hate to burst your bubble, but if you do "video game", it really changes things.

Yeah, I don't think I've ever used "videogames", I always put a space. Boardgames on the other hand, I don't use a space.

Board Games vs. Carrot Cake
