Short description

This game is all about guessing which item somebody is thinking of. The players try to find out by asking yes or no questions.


One person picks something - can be anything - and commits it to memory. He or she does not tell what this item is but he or she says, for example, "I'm thinking of something large." The guests are then allowed to ask yes or no questions. This goes on until one person guesses the item correctly. If the person guesses incorrectly the game still ends and the wrong person must chose a new item. Players should never guess until they are completely sure they know the answer.
