A Game Of 20 Questions.

Post by Tawmis » Wed Nov 14, 2018 8:46 pm

So... thinking of more forum games...

I was thinking, "Why not 20 questions?"

So someone thinks of a specific SIERRA [related] game.
- So this would include Dynamix, Corktel, etc.
- And the game should not be "general" (like just "King's Quest" but rather "King's Quest 1")

Others try to figure it out by asking only, "Yes" or "No" type questions.

For example, if I was thinking of Leisure Suit Larry 2.

Someone might ask: "Does it take place in Daventry?"
I say, "No."
Person #2 asks, "Is the main character a male?"
I say, "Yes."

And each time a person guesses, they write down what number their question is, in order to the ones others have asked.

You need not wait for one question to be answered to ask yours - though it may help.

You can only ask ONE question (until yours is answered).

So the idea is to try to guess the game in 20 questions.

If the person guesses the game correctly; they get to go next.

If it's not guessed in 20 questions, then the person reveals the game. And someone else could then take over, to start the next round.

Any interest in this?

If so, someone can pick the first game and run with it.
