Too easy or too hard, no middle ground
August 18, 2005

20 Questions is one of those childhood games that doesn't translate too well into an adult board game. The idea is simple, instead of asking 20 questions, you pick a number between 1 and 20 and hear a fact about the answer. Then you get to make a guess at what the answer is.

Guessing the "people", "places", and "things" tends to be pretty easy. Guessing the "years" is virtually impossible unless you're a history major. Some clues are a bit deceiving and filled with puns. Others are so straight-forward, the answer is instantly obvious./P>

I have this game in the basic version and the bible version, and both lack a middle ground. When you hear a clue either you guess the answer or you don't, there isn't much deductive reasoning./P>

Saying all this, I still like 20 questions as a game to play with young kids and small groups. It may not be too difficult, but that's OK, it's still a slightly educational experience. It's also interesting to look back at some of the clues and realize what they were talking about (they are often quite punny and hard to understand until you know the answer).
