20 Questions (Vol. VII)

Post  shepherdess on Tue Oct 29, 2013 5:39 pm

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!

Since the previous 20 Questions thread has reached 72 pages, I'm starting a new one. We are working on Choices' puzzle. Carry on.

6.  Is this thing owned by a male?  No and yes - there is a time when this thing is in the possession of a male, but only temporarily. It is owned by a female.
7.  Is it portable?  Yes
8. Does the particular incident you're thinking of involve Harry?  Yes
9. Does Harry use this thing himself?  No, not in the particular instance I am thinking of.
10. Is it a one-of-a-kind thing?  No, it is quite abundant in the Wizarding World.
12. Does it have anything to do with wizard education?   Yes, it certainly plays a part in wizard education, but.....No, it will throw you off track to persue that line of thinking.
13. Do we see this particular object only once in the books?  No, we see it in more than one book, but the particular instance I am thinking of is in just one book.
14. Is the instance your thinking of found in an odd numbered book?  Yes
15. Does the book have "of" in the title?  No
16. Is the book PS/SS?  No

18. Does the incident involve more than one other person?  Yes
19. Does the incident happen at Hogwarts?  No.
20. Is this incident a happy one?  No, but it's a necessary one.
21. Would this magical item be considered 'dark'?  No, the item itself is not dark, but it is often used for dark purposes.
22.  Is the female owner of this thing Hermione?  No, check #21.  Hermione would not use anything for "dark" purposes.

Congratulations Shepherdess.  Bella's wand was temporarily in Harry's possession, it went to Shell Cottage with Harry, and was later used by Hermione when she Polyjuiced into Bellatrix to go to Gringotts to look for the horcrux.   Well done!  

**In the Still Unanswered Questions thread just this past week, Julia said, "In this case, the fact that Hermione wanted to use Bellatrix Lestrange's vault disguised as Bellatrix Lestrange would have created suspicion among the goblins even if they hadn't known that Bella had lost her wand."**
