This is a pretty simple game in the vein of 20 Questions, first person who guesses a secret word correctly wins.
For two players:
Player 1 thinks of a noun. Player 2 tries to guess what Player 1 is thinking of. Each question has to be answered with either “yes” or “no” until the answer is guessed.
How to play courteously:
The noun should be something everyone playing knows exists. Unless you want to sabotage friendships, best to stay away from concepts. Yes: Statue of Liberty. No: The Theory of Relativity. If the driver is playing, don’t pick an object that is dangerous to look for.
For more than two players:
Player 2 guesses. If Player 2 gets an answer of “yes” then can continue guessing. Once Player 2 get an answer of “no”, it is Player 3’s turn. The winner of the game then becomes Player 1 for the next round.
