    Is it snow boots and if it is right I did not look on your profile by the way.

    According to your logic, a computer is a mineral too. And so is the car you drive. And wait, don’t forget all the jewelery you wear and quarters, nickles, dimes and pennies too.

    No, metal boots are not a mineral. They are made of metal which is a mineral but they are…..Boots!

    dotnetter – If what other people are saying is true, that the first question in the (card?) game is animal, vegetable, or mineral, then I would venture to say that the question is referring to the source of the materials, in which case all the things you mentioned WOULD be minerals.

    Frummy – I hear what you’re saying but I’m not sold. Does that make a leather boot an animal?

    Btw, it’s an electronic game.

    It originated as a word game played by mouth decades before the electronic adaptation. And the “animal, vegetable, mineral” thing almost never works out literally. That’s just how the game is played.

    um.. so anyone starting a new game?

    #937446

    OOM – Yeah, I actually learned the game when I played as walking home from shul friday night with my dad. Good memories.

    But using the “animal, vegetable, mineral” question as a starting point may have originated with the electronic version (thanks for the correction about what kind of game it is); I would imagine (but it doesn’t have to be so) that it is meant to be all-inclusive of any physical item, i.e. that every item is one of animal, vegetable, or mineral. So dotnetter, that would make a leather boot animal, anything metal, wood, or even plastic would be mineral, barley soup would be vegetable, etc. – hey, waiter! I ordered barley, not vegetable!

    dotnetter, want to think of one?

    lol, I used to play this game with my cousin at sedorim and seudos when the grown ups were having Grown Up Talk. ^_^

    Also, the “animal, vegetable, mineral” bit is I think as old as the game itself. I think so because the phraseology is kind of dated…but anyway, check the wiki article on Twenty Questions. It seems to confirm this.

    #937448

    I remember the “animal, vegetable or mineral” question from games played… sometime last century.

    I’ll host a turn.

    Batter up!
