Twenty Questions - Game 50

#1 Post by Szpoti » Fri Aug 26, 2022 2:50 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 persons real or fictional that are not horribly obscure. No repeats. It will never be Robert the Bruce again.
5. Whoever 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.

All set, let's go!

Thanks, Hamish. Took me almost two hours to get through all those records, and I got a bit lost there.

I suggest that we keep track of all the picks and winners. I have put together all the results so far. Please take a look and correct me if anything is wrong. My suggestion is that the question master copy-pastes this list at the end and adds the new results. By so doing, we will be able to avoid duplications and, one day, pronounce the one and only WINNER.

I've counted the winners to produce a current
LEADERBOARD

Two players are tied for the lead with 6 wins each:

Hamish - 6 wins
SenatorNyxen - 6 wins

Three players are close behind them, with 5 wins apiece:

VillageIdiot - 5 wins
Damo666 - 5 wins
Doug7878 - 5 wins

And the other players to have won more than ONE round are:

Cdngooner - 4 wins
Jamiet99uk - 3 wins
Szpoti - 3 wins
Ferdack - 2 wins
Jaguar - 2 wins

Ok it's a fictional human.

One more basic question and then I'll allow someone else in:

Is it a fictional human man?

Does this fictional human exist in our world (e.g. Earth but in a different time period)?
