How can I tell someone to look up this card game? I cannot remember
The Game: Spiel... so lange du kannst! This is ridiculous.

If you search for either "Spiel" or "kannst" it's the first hit.

I'm just going to leave that part alone.

The English printing with expansion included is called The Game On Fire - it's a little easier to search for!

The trick is getting the word SPIEL into the search.

Now you can educate them on what the word GAME means in another language as well as introduce them to a cool, easy to teach for newbies game.

So much win.

The Game On Fire is a German compilation of base game and expansion from original publisher NSV, not English.

Not sure if people know this. I just showed my friend and then saw this thread.

If you add "bgg" to any Google search you are guaranteed to get bgg related hits. So search "the game bgg"

I add "bgg" to rules searches often and it helps a lot.

I also found it difficult to find this game using the BGG search since I guess it looks for any titles containing ANY of my search keywords, i.e. "the" and "game". Is there a way to ask the search engine to look for exact matches, i.e. only return entries that contain all my keywords in the order given? I think other search engines allow this by using quotes or by including +.

I had trouble finding Glass Road when I typed in Glass Roads with "s" on the end.

Maybe the forthcoming site overhaul will address/fix this?

The Game is just a very badly titled, good game. Family enjoys playing it, as do I. I hate the title, though.
