Twenty Questions - Game 34

#1 Post by SenatorNyxen » Fri Jul 08, 2022 10:44 pm

Rules:

1. Only yes/no questions may be asked.
2. If the answer is unclear, question master must clarify why.
3. One guess per person does not count against the total, but additional guesses by the same person do. After all 20 questions are up, three total guesses are allowed.
4. Please choose people from history, or movie/TV/literary/video game chars/etc. characters that, if you were to throw a dart out the window, at least 50% of people hit would know this character.
5. Whomever guesses correctly takes over from the previous question master. If they do not want to do it, they may choose who to pass the duty onto or just give it to the first volunteer.
6. If the question master remains undefeated three times in a row, on the third time they must either pass it to a person of their choice, or the first volunteer takes over.

Take it away!

Are you asking as one question to save questions, or three just to speed things up?

Thinking about this. It's a good strategy, at most it will cost you 3 questions to determine the answer to all 3 questions, but if you guess right, you'll know sooner.

:lol: :
Bold strategy Cotton, but no

I think that's might be true if you get lucky and ask questions in the correct order, but I think it could also require four.

1 not a (real & dead & male)

I think to minimize guesses you actually want yes. If you get two yesses, then you know the third category is why the first question was no, so you don't need to ask it.

That's if they're independent at least, such that you could have a fictional dead guy. Dracula would be fun in this :lol: If you'd never ask if a fictional character was dead then this works, but then I think that just steers you even more towards making real/fiction the first question.
