Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

I've shown this list of clues / answers to a few friends and they all said "Colonel Sanders". I think we have ruled out Colonel Sanders. @Bona without an official "guess" are you willing to confirm that Colonel Sanders would be ruled out because there is, technically, at least one film about him......

Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

Thoughts:

Could it be some kind of journalist or writer, but one whose work would not be deemed "entertainment"?

What sort of person would get on the cover of TIME magazine, who had none of the jobs we tried to suggest?

Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

How about asking "was he born before 01.01.1950?"
Then you'd have a vague idea of his date of birth but only one question left.

We don't know anything about what this person *did*.

We need the mini to *start* first to get Jamie unbanned though.
Ahem
Well, if this starts first, you get to play in the mini at least.

Schrodinger's Jamie
What if this game starts first but the mini also fills up at almost the same time?

Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

Ah no, crap, I was about to suggest it could be Colonel Sanders, but a film was made about him, so he's out.
