:oldforum: Ten Commandments :oldforum:

Ⅰ Only binary questions may be asked.

Ⅱ If a binary question does not have a yes-or-no answer, the question master must not count the question.

Ⅲ All other binary questions will be answered and count towards a twenty-question limit, regardless of whether they were designated as 'conditional'.

Ⅳ One guess per person does not count against the total twenty questions, but additional guesses by the same person do.

Ⅴ After all twenty questions are used up, there are no more free guesses, and five total guesses are allowed.

Ⅵ No player shall ask more than two consecutive questions or make more than two consecutive guesses (or a consecutive combination thereof) before another player has asked a question or made a guess.

Ⅶ Before the twentieth question is asked, players who have not yet used their free guess may choose to expend their free guess alongside two consecutive questions.

Ⅷ The question master may should choose entities real or fictional that are not horribly obscure, so long as they are not repeats.

Ⅸ 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.

Ⅹ 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.

I prefer the original "may should." It translates well in to so many languages, AND makes me think of spring.

So a fictional creature of indeterminate or no gender. Interesting.

Question: Does this person or entity have a name beginning with a vowel?
