This is the classic game in which the original poster thinks of something (a person, a place, an animal, an object, etc.) and the rest have to guess it by asking yes/no questions. First person to actually guess the thing gets to post the next item for people to guess. If 20 questions are asked without a correct answer, the person who was thinking of the item gets to post another one.

I'll start. I am thinking of something.

Yes, it is bigger than a breadbox.

Is it a celestial object?

Also, first guess: Moon!

Dire Moose
2015-02-22, 01:07 PM
No, it is not a celestial object.

And to clarify, you can post as many times as you like, but only one question per post.

Alright, at this point I think that we should discuss options before we actually ask a question, so lets think about this. we know that this is a land dwelling, non flying, herbivore/omnivore, without spikes on it's face, from not south America, that's name ends in saurus, and it is bigger than a car lets discuss ideas before we ask another question

ezkajii

the only thing that comes to mind without research is the pachycephalosaurus

Torzini
2015-02-25, 02:59 PM
My vote goes to the stegosaurus. I doubt the OP would've picked something extremely obscure, and the stego fits all the descriptions... I was considering my next question to be whether it has spikes/plates on its back.

Emperordaniel
2015-02-25, 03:01 PM
It could be some sort of sauropod.

Torzini

No, it couldn't.


15. No, it does not have a long neck.

Emperordaniel

I guess stegosaurus sounds like a likely option, then.

Whoops, forgot about poor lil stego. If we ask about tail equipment and it does not have it, that rules out both stegosaurus and ankylosaurus too, actually.

Whoops, forgot about poor lil stego. If we ask about tail equipment and it does not have it, that rules out both stegosaurus and ankylosaurus too, actually.

Posters other than me, do you think that should be the next question? "Does it have tail spikes" to rule out the stego / "Does it have a club-like tail" to rule out the ankylosaurus? I'm seeing those as the two most likely possibilities unless someone has other ideas.

braveheart
2015-02-26, 03:57 PM
I'm thinking we should ask if the tail is unique and an identifying feature of it, so if it isn't either then we still have 2 questions. Any other ideas for the question?

Emperordaniel
2015-02-26, 06:11 PM
Maybe we word it like "does it have a weapon-like tail" to include both stego and ankylo?

If he says no to both of those questions, I think we should pause to have a discussion of the possibilities before asking any further... we'll have something like 2 questions left? So yeah.

For the record, I don't think it's a table, since it's "something you can hold in your hand." But we'll see :mitd:

You are correct! Although as you point out, you can't hold a table in your hand, so I'll give you that one as a freebie, leaving 3 questions remaining.

Torzini
2015-03-11, 03:50 PM
So, let's review what we know about this object...


Yays

It is man-made.
It is sometimes made of metal/wood.
It is small enough to hold in one's hand.
It is usually used while eating.



Nays

It is NOT classified as a weapon or a tool.
It is NOT: a spoon, fork, cup, chopsticks, a plate, chair, or table.



The only common table utensil we haven't guessed yet is a knife... but I have my doubts about that, as knives aren't usually made of wood.

Another guess I have is salt/pepper shakers, something I didn't think of until now.

Thoughts? :smallcool:

jaydubs
2015-03-11, 04:02 PM
Thoughts, not guesses/questions...

It could be something like a spork.

Knife handles can be made of wood. But the thing with knives, is that they might be used as weapons. And I'd consider them tools as well.

It might also be something like a lunch tray.

Emperordaniel
2015-03-11, 04:14 PM
It could be a bowl, perhaps.

Also, I'm thinking of asking if it's tangible, but there's some overlap between these two questions.

And Emperordaniel, I assume you won't count it as an additional question if I make sure you confirmed the last answer with a google search?

Well, bummer. The only idea I had left was an angel (or a fallen angel - demon), and that is in the Monster Manual. I suppose, barring anybody coming up with other questions in the next few hours I'll ask one of the above questions. Or I'll ask if it's Evil, maybe?

Trevortni

I meant the TV show Supernatural.

Emperordaniel
2015-03-28, 08:02 AM

Want that to count as a single question or two?

Trevortni
2015-03-28, 10:27 AM
Well, if it originates from the Western Hemisphere, it might not matter. If I'm wrong about that one, then it's question 17.

Emperordaniel
2015-03-28, 11:24 AM
It's rather ambiguous, but if we define the "Western Hemisphere" as the area lying west of the Prime Meridian and east of the 180th meridian, then it is (probably) safe to say that it does not have an origin there.

kgato503

18. Does it appear in other works besides Supernatural?

Trevortni
2015-04-01, 04:01 PM
Alright, having never seen Supernatural, I have to ask:

18. Does it appear in other works besides Supernatural?

I think that can be assumed to be the case from the answer to question 9, that fantasy is one setting it has been depicted in.

If you're not familiar with creatures in Supernatural (I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of them either), you might want to take a look here (http://www.supernaturalwiki.com/index.php?title=Category:Creatures_%26_Spirits).

Edit: In addition to my previously voiced questions, I have been considering asking if it hails form the Orient; but we're running out of questions, so I was hoping someone would be willing to discuss what questions are the best before asking them.

Emperordaniel
2015-04-01, 10:44 PM

*insert facepalm here* My bad :smallredface:. Thanks Emporordaniel for not counting that against us.

As for the next question, after a quick look at the link (thank you for that), it seems that most the creatures not alot of the creatues have an oreintal origin, so if the thing we are trying to guess is from the orient, it would really narrow things down. If it isn't from the orient, then I don't think the question it will provide as much insight as could be desired this late in the game. All that being said, I'm good with it being the next question (better than mine was at any rate :smalltongue:) What does everyone else think?

Trevortni

Well, to bring us up to date first:

1 - human size or smaller? (Y)
2 - alive? ("interesting, going to have to go with" N)
3 - fictitious? (Y)
4 - larger than a shoebox? (Y)
5. Yes, it can make sounds.
6. Yes, it moves under its own power.
7. Was it alive at some point in the past? (That depends on the depiction.)
8. No, it is not a golem.
9. Fantasy settings are one setting it has been depicted in.
10. Yes, it is humanoid in form.
11. Was it created by mortals? (Usually, not.)
12. Yes, it is intelligent.
13. Is it an undead creature? (It may count as one.)
14. Is it in the Monster Manual? (N)
15. Is it Evil? (In some depictions, yes.)
16. Is it in Supernatural?

a. It is supernatural. (Misunderstood the question)
b. The answer is still yes (well, close enough for me at any rate), in that case. :smalltongue:
17. If it originates from the Western Hemisphere (It's rather ambiguous, but if we define the "Western Hemisphere" as the area lying west of the Prime Meridian and east of the 180th meridian, then it is (probably) safe to say that it does not have an origin there.


I've taken the liberty of bolding the answers that I think are the most significant. Did you notice anything in the list that jumped out at you as possibly being considered undead, or possibly alive or not alive, that usually isn't created by mortals (though that leaves the possibility of having been in some settings) and is occasionally but not always Evil? It might not be the exact thing that's in Supernatural, but close enough. Daniel might be yanking our chain with the prevarication on the Western Hemisphere, or maybe not; if not, it makes sense to look at things close to the Prime and 180th Meridian, specifically to the east of the Prime, or to the west of the 180th.

Paris is a bit east of the prime, as is the easternmost part of Spain, including Barcelona, and also the easternmost bit of Britain, obviously. It then continues south through the westernmost part of Africa: Algeria, Mali, ***** (apparently GITP doesn't like N i g e r) and Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin. I don't see much after that until Antartica, and if he opened up that can of worms, we might as well concede defeat right now.

West of the 180th, we have all of Russia but the tail end, the last of the Aleutian Islands (Hawaii and Midway are just barely on the wrong side), lots of islands, including the Gilbert & Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Fiji straddling the line, New Zealand. The Solomon Islands, Tasamania, Australis, Micronesia, Guam, the easternmost Japanese islands, are all a little farther afield.

Is it just me, or does the Scarecrow fit a lot of the bill? What do you think, Trevortni?

Edit: Never mind, it failed test #14, as it is in the monster manual. Also, under that heading it failed #8, as the manual lists it as a golem.

Trevortni
2015-04-02, 12:51 PM
My thinking had been running along the lines of Kitsune (Skinwalkers failed the Western Hemisphere test), but I don't really know a lot about them, whether they could be considered not alive, previously alive, or undead under any depictions.

Edit: Never mind, it failed test #14, as it is in the monster manual. Also, under that heading it failed #8, as the manual lists it as a golem.

Wait, that depends on which Monster Manual you're talking about. IIRC, scarecrows aren't in the 3E MM, golems or no. Although they usually aren't depicted as mobile, supernatural creatures, and rarely as undead at that... but otherwise they sound like a strong candidate to me.

Damn, it's really hard thinking of a man-sized creature that's presumably (but not obviously) not alive, possibly but not always undead, and which usually was never alive to begin with...

18. Is it an embodiment of an abstract concept?

Trevortni
2015-04-02, 01:08 PM
Hmmm, I like it. But in the interest of preserving questions in the event of being wrong, would you like to ask if it's in Discworld first, or something like that?

SirKazum
2015-04-02, 01:19 PM
Come to think of it... yeah, I'll change my question. I'll ask *another* general question though. I'll edit my previous post.

I think we're safe to launch, no? Any more general questions?

And one of the reasons why I changed my questions is because I probably won't be able to hang around until Monday, so I didn't want to win and leave you guys hanging by not posting my own puzzle :smallbiggrin: So, I won't mind if someone else posts my guess.

I say go for it. You've got a pretty solid guess, and we'll have one question left over in case we overlooked something.

No.

Trevortni, your question might still be valid, as it could eliminate man made structures, robots, and golems. Mine just eliminated ghosts, zombies, etc.

Trevortni
2015-04-02, 04:25 PM
3. Is it natural?

It just bothers me to have a second question on the books before we know what the answer to the first question will be. Especially after some of the more ambiguous answers on the previous item.

SirKazum
2015-04-02, 06:59 PM
3. Is it natural?
No.

And yeah, as a general principle, I think it's better strategy to wait for each answer before asking the next question :smallbiggrin:

Excellent points to both of you. I bow to your wisdoms. :smallwink:

Now, moving along,

4) Is it capable of powered movement? (i.e. can it move under its own power, like a steam locomotive or golem could, or is it not able to, like a normal building or sculpture would be unable to move unless acted upon by an outside force)
