20 Questions (MCC1)

Postby MCC » Mon Nov 06, 2006 4:53 pm

Since Myth Jellies broached the subject, we'll try 20 questions.

Rules: I can only give "Yes" or "No" replies to questions, no clues given.

You have only 20 questions in which to guess what I'm thinking of.

A guess counts as a question.

If you quess what I'm thinking of, you win, if you don't, then I win.

Something simple to start with.

I'm thinking of a "What"

What am I:?:

Thought I should touch base again in case you're wondering where I've been. After prolonged neglect of "I'll do it tomorrow" jobs around the house which of course never get done I've rekindled enthusiasm to start some gardening maintenance and other chores.

I've been looking at the riddles, etc. but couldn't come up with any ideas. Cheers to all.

Zen and the Art of Procrastination.

Cec this not a riddle, just a simple game in which you have to guess what I'm thinking of in 20 questions.

I feel like the goalie in a penalty shootout! I let one through!:(

Are you a household item?

No, you were a shooter that missed a penalty...:D

MCC is the goalie, and others are taking turn to shoot at his goal... I wouldn't try it this early for fear of a wasted question would jeopardise you guys' chances of cracking it at the end... I think this game is only fair on a 1-to-1 basis... Each person asks his/her own 20 questions... But this would require MCC to respond to each person over PM and is not realistic... When many people are involved it would only take a careless/ruthless person to spoil the whole thing for everyone...:!:

I think the penalty shooting only starts when someone tries to guess the actual answer. At this point we are only moving the ball closer to the goal. The righ questions asked, then both "yes" and "no" will move the ball equally much closer to the goal... But your right, udosuk, this is hard as a group, but that just makes it more interesting...

I believe 20 questions is played as a group, each player taking a turn to ask a question, I'll only be taking one question at a time from each postee
so no multiple questions.
I realise that you cannot take turns, so, if I feel that someone is taking a liberty and being a spoil sport then I'll limit the questions that they can ask.
Let's hope that people play by the spirit of the game.

I won't try a guess, but have been facinated about this game for a while, and again and again been very impressed by this site: http://www.20q.net/

So MCC, I would be interested to know how many guesses that site used just to give us a benchmark?:)
