    I don't think this has been done before.
    It is a cross between 20 Questions and I Spy.

    ---Gameplay ---

    The first person starts off by thinking of an object and posts the first letter of that object.
    Others guess by asking questions that can yield a 'yes' or 'no' answer only.
    Each player can only ask one question or guess one object in between each of the thinker-of-the-object's replies.
    The first person to guess the object correctly continues the game by posting the first letter of their chosen object.
    If it takes more than 20 questions to guess the "object", gameplay continues until someone correctly guesses.

    All questions should be numbered in numerical order.
    Guesses do not need to be numbered.

    I'll start off.

    This object starts with the letter H.

    Ahhh, with stuff. A mixture of 20 questions and Eyespy?

    1. Is it edible (human-wise)?

    Can I just guess "Is it a hat?" Or do I have to ask "Is it an item of clothing?" first?

    We only have 20 questions though, so that strategy may not be the best unless you are a lucky person.

    20 questions is a lot to guess an object, isn't it? :S

    Should we wait for the thinker-of-the-object to answer each question before asking another one?

    A lot? I was thinking it was too little. There are hundred of words that begin with H... It probably comes down to asking smart questions.

    Yeah, lol. *edits my first question post*

    I guess... coz if it's not a kitchen accessory, for example, then it rules out a bunch of kitchen stuff, like Hob, Hotplate, etc.

    Aside:
    I love 20 questions xD but I suck at other people's lives. So, this is Good. :biggrin:

    Sorry it seems to be harder than I orginally thought.

    Some elaborations: It doesn't have to be 20 questions, although numbering the questions is a good idea tasha :smile: and you can guess the object at any time. Each person can either ask 1 question or have 1 guess before the thinker-of-the-object replies :)

    Nope

    Not unless you are overly strong :razz:

    It's not an item of clothing i'm afraid :sad:

    Ummm, so does that mean I can guess now because I'm allowed one guess before you reply?

    If so, I'd like to guess Harley Davidson? :razz:

    * storm flies! Coz we get more than 20 questions.

    Sorry, I just finished reading Making Money by Terry Pratchett... I want to be Moist van Lipwig! Oh...kay...I digress. :biggrin:
