Kind of a new game

"How does it work?
You'll be randomly paired with a partner who's online and using the feature. Over a two-minute period, you and your partner will:
View the same set of images.
Provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see.
Receive points when your label matches your partner's label. The number of points will depend on how specific your label is.
See more images until time runs out.

After time expires, you can explore the images you've seen and the websites where those images were found. And we'll show you the points you've earned throughout the session.

Tips:
You may click the "pass" button if you can't think of any more labels for an image. If you and your partner both click "pass," you'll see the next image but receive no points for the passed image
You'll receive more points for matches with more descriptive labels. For example, this image can be described by the labels: sky (50 points), bird (60 points), soaring (120 points), or frigate bird (150 points)."

Nothing like doing Google's work for them, but in a fun way!

I tried once, and my partner was useless. It showed a picture of Quentin Tarantino, so I typed "Quentin Tarantino". Nothing. "Tarantino"? "Quentin"? Zip. The guy's label count kept climbing, so finally after a minute, I typed "white guy". Match!
