Twenty Questions - Mrs Oct's Cousin (possibly!) Edition - Game No.3

#1 Post by Octavious » Sun May 29, 2022 8:37 pm

As the proud guesser of Game #2 couldn't be arsed, I proudly take up the challenge of choosing a distant relative for you all to guess.

The rules again are:
1. Only yes/no questions may be asked, although answers may deviate from yes and no if I so wish
2. If the answer is unclear, questionmaster may clarify why if he can be bothered.
3. Guesses do not count against the total. Because of that, only one guess is allowed after all 20 are up.
4. Please choose people/movie/TV/literary/video game/obscure relatives that, if you were to throw a nuke out the window, at least some people irradiated would know this person.
5 At any stage the questionmaster may give clues in order to help or hinder the masses. At no point will the questionmaster lie.
6. Whomever guesses correctly takes over from the previous questionmaster. 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.
7. If the questionmaster 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.

OK chap, I have some person in mind. Who is it?

Ok I'll bite.

Is this person actually your wife's cousin?

This person is Mrs Oct's 2nd Cousin. The sort of family member you only meet at large family gatherings

As a bonus clue and to spare you a second guess, this person is not a Bruce

So that establishes this person as a real person, who is presumably currently alive, and who is probably from the UK or at the very least, from a Western country.

Next question (and then I'll wait until someone else has a turn):

Is this person a public sector / government employee?

Jamie is on fire tonight. Obviously I won't confirm or deny anything that isn't a question, but it's hard to find fault with your reasoning.

Oh I was just thinking given your own career background, and bearing in mind that this person is supposedly well-known enough that people might have heard of them, I wondered if your wife might be related to a diplomat or someone like that.

Okay, how about we go back to the basics: is this person real?

<<Not a question>> but does the entertainment field include sports?

I think this was already established with Jamie's question, but it can't really hurt to check, right?

Anyway:
Is this person (Mrs Oct's 2nd cousin) of the female variety?

Oh, wait, I just caught the last of the exchange in Thread #2, so I was not up to speed that we really are guessing Oct's cousin. I retract my question.

Whether or not the musings of another thread can be taken as entirely accurate here I can neither confirm nor deny 😉.

As a point of clarity, I do indeed believe professional sport to be part of the entertainment industry. A quick summary of the questions thus far will appear shortly

Does this person regularly appear on British television?

(Where "regularly" may be taken as at least once a month)

Yes. Although recognition will depend somewhat on where in the UK you live and, naturally enough, your interests.
