Twenty Questions - 42nd Game

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Mon Aug 01, 2022 1:42 pm

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 brick out of a 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.
7. Giving +1s to the question master is strongly encouraged.

With game #42 up I was going to make an early guess at Ford Prefect or Zaphod Beeblebrox, but that is out of the window.

I expect it's Douglas Adams.

I assume this is not your actual guess, or is it?

It would be a very impressive person indeed if they'd managed to be alive in the 18th, 19th and 21st centuries, but not alive in the 20th century.

Either way up, the answer is "no".
