    1) Is it manmade? Yes

    2) Does it use electricity? No

    3) Is it metal? It contains metal.

    4) Is it colorful (3 or more colors)? It can be (usually not really)

    5) is it bigger then a computer screen/monitor? (Since that can vary, I’ll assume you meant an average size of about 20″) Yes

    6) Is it a household object? I’m gonna go with Yes (It’s not a chair)

    7) Does it have legs? No

    8) Is it partially ceramic? No

    9) is it movable? Yes

    10) Does it hold other stuff in it? No

    11) Does it have wheels? No

    12) Is its primary use outdoors? No

    13) Is it used for recreational purposes (as opposed to something used to accomplish something necessary/boring)? Yes!

    14) Is it primarily used by children (under 10 years)? No

    15) Is it a game? No

    16) Does it have many (10 or more) pieces? No (It is one object)

    Hint: Only some people have one, but it is almost universally appreciated

    17) is it usually used in one specific room? No

    Hint: It can’t always be used.

    18) (Is it) a musical instrument of some type? Yes

    18.5) Can it be used on Shabbos? No (Which instruments can be used on Shabbos?)

    Hint: It’s not some abstract instrument like the Hocchiku (Japanese vertical bamboo flute), so basically, you still very much have a chance – just ask as good a 19th question as you can!

    19) Is it a string instument? Yes

    20) Is it round? As a whole entity, I would not describe it as being round..

    Yeah, sure, let’s make this fun – every poster gets one guess. Go for it! I’ll post the answer Tuesday morning.

    Smile E. – I would still count battery powered instruments as using electricity. And remember, it’s bigger than a 20″ monitor (in total volume). Assume the monitor’s an inch or two thick; that would be another reason to knock out the flute.

    I want to clarify #16 – when you say it is one object, do you mean it is literally comprised of only one contiguous substance (like a one-piece wooden recorder), or do you just mean it has no loose pieces (i.e. not attached to the whole)?

    #937370

    frummy in the tummy

    No loose pieces, e.g. it wouldn’t be a whole drum set.

    Is it a cello?

    Remember – the more guesses there are, the more likely it is that SOMEONE will get it right. So by guessing, you both give yourself a chance of getting it right as well as improving the overall chance of the CR as a whole getting the answer! I’ll post the answer around 11 AM tomorrow morning.

    Also, feel free to repeat someone else’s guess!

    Another idea (where are these coming from??) – whoever guesses right thinks of the next one!

    Is it a harp?

    #937376

    Participant

    Is that a no to the cello fitt?

    I was thinking I’d just say the answer tomorrow, instead of just individually answering each time someone guesses, so you or ilc may still be correct. Otherwise there would be an unfair disadvantage to you for guessing first (more options to guess from). Now other posters don’t necessarily know if you’re right or wrong and may still guess cello or harp if they think either of those is correct.

    One guess per poster!

    Thanks, Goq! Great suggestion to have guesses after the 20th q!

    #937383

    The Q & A of “Is it round? As a whole entity, I would not describe it as being round.” made me think it was something almost round, i.e. a mandolin.

    ICOT – Nice one! Similarly, I was wondering (when I wrote the answer) whether a banjo would have been a straight up ‘yes’.

    Showjoe – Nice! Yes, I see what you mean! I think someone else should do the next one.

    p.s. don’t worry, you’re one of many! (no, wait, that’s the other guy)

    OOM – I’m assuming you picked one? If so…

    Is it manmade?

    Is it a common (>50%) household item?

    #937404

    Animal, vegetable or mineral?

    (that’s how we always stared the questions when I was a kid)

    #937405

    That’s also how the toy works. I bought it for my younger brother once and its uncanny how it almost always gets it right.

    #937406

    Derech HaMelech-

    We have it too, but I’ve never played it.

    I know one of the questions it always asks is “Is it bigger than a breadbox?”, but I didn’t know that “Animal, vegetable or mineral” was also one.

    Great SN, btw.

    ==========

    Should I correct the type in my previous post?

    Nah, let it stay there.

    #937407

    Is it bigger than a bread box I remember is also one of them, but the first question is if its animal, vegetable or mineral.

    #937408

    frummy in the tummy
    Participant

    I don’t understand – is that a yes or no question whether it is one of the three animal, vegetable, or mineral, or is it asking which one of them it is? Isn’t it just supposed to be yes or no questions?

    #937409

    Now that you mention it, I don’t remember. Maybe it goes through each one. but i’m 100% sure that is the opening question(s).

    #937410

    #2 (frummy in the tummy) Yeah, I would say so.

    #3 (I can only try) Mineral…I think…
