Twenty Questions

Source: School, Church, and Home Games
Category: GAMES FOR THE HOME





This is a quiet, entertaining and instructive game. One member of the
family is given the privilege of thinking of some specific object
anywhere in the universe. The others endeavor to guess what that object
is and are only allowed to ask twenty questions in doing so. The one
who thinks of the object to be guessed, only answers the questions
asked by yes or no. It is exceptional when the object is not guessed,
no matter how difficult it may be, before the twenty questions have
been asked. Example,--the King of Belgium is selected by the player.
The first question asked by another player is, "Is it in the animal
kingdom?" This question is answered by "Yes".

Second question: "Is it in a menagerie?"
Answer: "No."
Third question: "Is it a man?"
Answer: "Yes."
Fourth question: "Is it an historical character?"
Answer: "Yes."
Fifth question: "Is he an American?"
Answer: "No."

And so the questions and answers continue. Any one has the privilege of
asking a question at any time. The one who is thinking of the subject
keeps a record of the number of questions asked. If any one has guessed
within twenty questions, he has the opportunity of thinking of the new
object to be guessed.
