sporcle

verb; other word formation type eponymy
To visit and play intellectual online games on www.spockle.com.
 
With the prevalent usage of the internet, utilizing very popular and commonly used websites have made it necessary to use the website’s name as an actual word. Other examples include the use of “google” and “facebook” as actual verbs. Just as how “youtubing” means to watch youtube videos, “sporkle” means to play sporcle game online. Perhaps this word will undergo broadening in the future to mean playing online games for superfluous yet intellectual purposes.
Etymology : related to the word “oracle” meaning a wise person (according to the creator of the website) (http://www.voxmagazine.com/stories/2009/05/14/click-sporclecom/)
