You think of a character and the genie asks you 20 questions. It seems to be really on for others, but I stumped it when I played. :D

Ooh, that was really amusing. :-) I gave him 30 questions, but he got it wrong both times.

Got it wrong 3 times in a row for Sherlok Holmes, Josh Gates (from destination Truth), and Kurumi (from the Steel Angel Kurumi anime/manga). Then he got it right on the 4th time when I picked Rydia

Took him three times for me. ;o First he picked Cat in Hat, then Saving Private Ryan, and finally got Indiana Jones. xD

Now I am going to mess around with it.

Okay, after four or five straight-ons, he missed Elijah Snow... until he asked five more questions!! :o WHAT IS GOING ON!?

Same thing with Robin Senna, but he got his back with Huck Finn.

The questions he asks are made to narrow down things. The first question is always are they real? Which tells the program to look at fiction or non-fiction sources. Then it asks other questions and some of them are very specific.  For instance when i did Rydia he asked If the character had green hair, which I answered yes. He then asked if she was part of the final fantasy series which I answered yes. So Those 2 questions told him it would either be Rydia or Terra Bandford (the only 2 green haired women in the final fantasy series). Then there were other questions, I think one was Does the character use swords. Terra does, rydia doesnt so it narrowed it down right there

Alright!  Beat him with Jakita Wagner!  Though, since he had Elijah Snow in there, I wasn't sure it would work.

I used it for an RP character and it actually got the inspiration source.
Much fun!

Twenty-nine to get to Brian Mulroney. Not bad, I guess. The real question is why that was the first person to pop into my head (shudder)...

Guessed Scarlett O'Hara in twenty questions on me. Then I beat him with Sinuhe, The Egyptian, having had suggested Atreyu and Bastien from The Neverending Story, several times hinted if my character was from LotR and then suggested some character from The Children of Dune. :-)

But it's a good find, thanks.

I've been fooling with this the whole afternoon (on and off, but still) he surprised me a few times, but I beat him on Ahmad Ibn Fadlan (from Eaters of the Dead/13th Warrior), Diego Alatriste and Lthien, but it's pretty impressive, although I'm sure the programming algorithm behind it is quite simple.

Got Sherlock Holmes in 20 questions, but it took 40 questions to get Dr. Watson...
