Google launched a daily trivia game on Monday which involves scouring the Internet search engine for the answers to questions.

"A a Day" will feature a different question each weekday at agoogleaday.com and above the crossword puzzle in The .

The answer to each day's question will be revealed the next day at agoogleaday.com and in the Times, Google said in a blog post.

"Just like traditional crossword puzzles, the difficulty of the questions increases over the course of the week, so by Thursday or Friday, even the most seasoned searcher may be stumped," Google said.

Google created the agoogleaday.com search site so players do not potentially run into answers posted by other players on google.com.

Monday's first question was: "Two future presidents signed me. Two didn't because they were abroad. Despite my importance, modern viewers seem to think I have a glaring spelling error. What is it?"

The answer can be found at agoogleaday.com.
