Original Post

Yes, thirty :D

I like 20 questions, but my siblings take forever to figure out my answers ;) So I decided to make it 30 questions. Besides, I want to increase the chances of other people guessing correctly.

Edit: I suppose I should explain the game to people who may not have played before.
Someone thinks of something, and tells everyone else the category it is in (person, place, thing... some people make more categories, animal, plant, mineral, among others).
Then people ask yes/no questions to try to figure out what it is.

You can make up your own categories but you've got to give some category for your answer ;) :)

I'm going to do a "normal" one for me.

I'm thinking of a Living Thing

Have at it :D



Previous Games:


Narc0tiq's Game:

Thinking of an Object

1. Is it a naturally occuring object? - No
2. Is it smaller than a football? - Yes
3. Is it a rectangle? - No (neither literally, nor shaped like one)
4. Does it run on electricity? - No
5. Would it be found within the home? - Yes, it is commonly found in most homes.
6. Is it soft/easily flexable? - No.
7. Is it smaller than a microwave? - Yes
8. Would it be found in the kitchen? - No
9. Would it be found in a bedroom? - Most don't
10. Would it be found in a toolbox? - Depends whose toolbox - a computer tech would carry several around. Most other techs would have little use for them, though.
11. Does it have a commonly known name? - Hm... that's an interesting question. I'll take that as "Is it known outside of specialty circles (i.e. technical circles such as electronics repairmen)." And the answer is: Yes, it is known to most people. I'll even go so far as to hint that it is known most commonly by its acronym.
12. Might it have a handle? - No
13. Would it happen to be an air can? - No
14. Is it a CD? - YES

6. Is it used for personal hygiene? - "Ahh, no."
7. Is it commonly used daily? - "Yes it is, either the cause of migranes or therepy in my life...I think in most peoples."

8. 8. Is it used for recreation purposes? - I use it for recreaction...but that's just me. It's safe to say that no, it is not normally a recreational tool.

Narc0tiq won.
