20 Questions (Vol. VI)

Post  Potteraholic on Tue Jun 12, 2012 11:17 am

This game was originally started on World Crossing by shepherdess - Oct 8, 2008 1:11 pm On October 8, 2008

shepherdess posted the following:

I've found this game works well on my family forum, and I think it might be fun here too.

For anyone unfamiliar with the game, it works like this:

Basic rules:
1. Someone thinks of something--a person, place or thing (in this case, HP related, of course).
2. Others ask "yes" or "no" questions to gain information about the subject.
3. Only 20 questions are allowed. If it isn't guessed within the 20 questions, that person gets another turn. If it is guessed, the person who guessed it goes next.

The rules may need to be modified as we adapt the game for this forum. Some things we might want to consider are:
1. Should things like spells, book titles, etc. be allowed as they may be very difficult to identify within a 20 question limit?
2. Should we increase the number of questions to allow for very obscure things?

Tip: I've found it most helpful if, when asking a question, you number your question, so it's easier to keep track of how many questions have been asked.

So I will start the game off, and see if anyone's interested in playing. I'm thinking of something HP related, and you have 20 questions to identify what I'm thinking of. Let the questioning begin!

New thread on hold until current game on old thread is finished.

Post  Potteraholic on Tue Jun 12, 2012 11:19 am

I started this thread so that a new one is ready when the current game in the old thread is finished. Threads usually end on the 68th or 69th page of a thread.

I will close the other thread, provide a link there to this new one here, then delete this post when a new game is started here.

Thanks, Shepherdess. Smile Though I wasn't much of a chatter, anyway. And as long as Verity and Mona still want to play Five Words, I'll pop in.

3. Is it seen in a book with 'of' in the title?

BTW, love the "grace" avatar! LOL

Whoa! That was fast. I just remembered seeing that poster on a website I visited a few days ago, and it popped into my brain! Okay ... I'll have to think of something. I'll try to have it by tonight or first thing tomorrow morning. Thanks, Choices! Smile

Okay, I've checked the archives, and I think I'm in "fresh territory." Let the guessing begin!
