20 Questions game
Here's a variation on the old Twenty Questions game for your next date or time together. These questions will help you go deeper than the usual topics. You probably played a game as a child where you got 20 Questions to The golden rule applies to this game as it does all other date ideas. Instructions by Sara+ Summary: A guessing game in which people try to identify a person or object in 20 questions or less. Good for The objective of Twenty Questions is quite simple: guess the person, place or thing in
H ere 's a list of questions Q might consider asking early on in the game. For example, if A has chosen nipples as his target, that's a class, whereas the left nipple of Sigourney Weaver is a unique thing actual game example played by my brother and me, which I never did guess. If the target is riverbanks, that's a class, whereas the Left Bank of the Seine is a unique thing in this most famous example of a game played on the celebrity panel television show called "20 Questions" back in the late '50s, this target was guessed in only seven questions.
To see the left nipple of Sigourney Weaver I photographed from a TV screen showing a movie on Flix I watched whose name I don't remember, click here and be prepared to see a real bare-breasted woman. Well, OK, a photograph of a TV screen showing a movie of a real bare-breasted woman. Sometimes A must change targets on the fly, as it were, depending on the questions he gets from Q. For example, once when I chose a golf tee as my target, a Q started asking color questions early on, before he had asked whether the target was a unique thing or a class of things.
When he asked, "Is it red? I decided against a particular golf tee because that seemed too difficult, and I decided against any color other than white because the single most common color of golf tees is in fact white. Consequently, in answer to the question, "Is it red? Later I was asked whether the target was plastic, and, although there are such things as plastic golf tees, I decided to narrow my target down again, this time to wooden golf tees.
So, as you can see in this example, while I had originally thought of "golf tee" as my target, I later refined the definition to "any old, white, wooden golf tee," even though Q never knew I had effectively changed the target on the fly. The novice A will fail to recognize that he may change the target on the fly as long as he does it without contradicting any previous answers, of courseand the result is that his definition of the target starts to expand beyond his original intent, e.
Another tip on this subject: If A says he's thinking of a unique thing, Q should find himself asking questions like, "IS IT found in the eastern time zone? If Sigourney Weaver dies before I do and I don't get this page updated, please. Furthermore, if the answer is Yes then Q might well want immediately to ask follow-up questions about precisely what substance it is: This target has parts, but it still consists of a single, homogeneous substance.
If the target has only one part, Q's universe of potential targets is greatly reduced. If it has more than one part, Q should attempt to determine whether the number of parts is closer to, say, four your basic pencil or four thousand your basic car or four million your basic space shuttle. And if it does have parts, ask whether it has moving parts.
Here again, either answer rules out a lot of possibilities: A kitchen match has parts but no moving parts, whereas a lighter has both parts and moving parts. Size If "Animal, vegetable or mineral? This exact starting question regarding the size of the target was popularized by Steve Allen, a regular early panelist on the game show What's My Line? The show ran weekly in the evenings for 18 years, from towhich is still a record for a prime-time game show.
As ofwhere I live the show is in its second round of re-runs on the Game Show Network GSNand I record and watch every episode, and you should too. The premise involved the four panelists asking the various contestants yes-or-no questions to determine their various and usually unexpected occupations, hence the title.
If you watch more than a few episodes you'll note that Arlene Francis and Bennett Cerf are way better than any of the other panelists except that Dorothy Kilgallen is way better than them. She had a way of figuring things out, using not just logic but all the little clues the other panelists missed, that was uncanny. From here Q may move on to a softball, a golf ball, a penny, and the head of a pin in one direction and a desk, an elephant, the Sears Tower, and Norway in the other direction.
Shape However, it will often happen that once Q gets within the approximate range of sizes, A will suddenly have difficulty answering whether the target is bigger than whatever Q asks about, which might tell Q that A is not having difficulty with the comparative sizes so much as with the comparative shapes. For example, if A's target is a Frisbee and Q asks, "Is it bigger than a softball? A thinks, "A Frisbee is wider and deeper, but then again a softball is taller and more massive," and so, because he may not mislead Q according to Rule 2A will say, "I can't answer.
Finally, in a tentative voice that suggested great uncertainty, she answered "Yes. Her target was the sun. Where found Sample questions: For example, "Can you go out and buy it? As Q you should realize that sometimes A forgets this rule or misinterprets it.
Be careful how you ask a question such as "Is it decorative? If A hems and haws or just hems, for that matteryou should ask follow-up questions such as "Is it more decorative than functional?
It turns out that she had been thinking of the bales of hay in the fields past which we were driving. When I asked her why she said bales of hay are decorative, she told me about one time when she'd seen bunting draped on hay bales at a barn dance. If I'd only asked an obvious follow-up question such as, "Is it decorative about one one-millionth of the time?
Novice As tend to pick a target that only they are familiar with "my wife's purse" ; experienced Qs will remember this tendency.
Playing 20 questions on 1st datewhat are some fun/flirty questions to ask??
However, as you play more you will discover that as A you need to stop to think pretty hard about whether the target you've chosen is indeed a good one -- one that will allow you to answer as many questions as possible with a definitive Yes or a No and that will give Q a fighting chance of eventually determining what it is you've thought of.
