Saw this magic genie dude mentioned at poor_choices' place. To play, he asks you to think about a real or fictional character, and he will try to guess who it is (via a series of questions).

I gave him a try, and to my amazement, he's frakking unbelievable!

Yap, he guessed correctly on first try! \o/


So I figure, what the heck, let's try again. This time he wasn't as sharp as before, but he did got it correct on 2nd attempt.


Since I'm on a roll here, I decided to try non-fictional character. Again, he got it right on the first round of questions!


Unfortunately, that's when my (or should I say his) luck ends. Try as I may, I couldn't get him to come up with Jamie Bamber. *harrumph*

ETA: Okay, this dude guessed Elizabeth Bennet with 14 questions:
  1. Does your character really exist? --> No

  2. Is your character a human being? --> Yes

  3. Is your character American? --> No

  4. Is your character from a video game? --> No

  5. Is your character an adult man? --> No

  6. Is your character from an anime? --> No

  7. Does your character live in England? --> Yes

  8. Does your character have magical powers? --> No

  9. Is your character from a TV series? --> No (okay I struggled with this one because obviously there's both BBC miniseries and movie adaptation)

  10. Is your character an adult? --> Yes

  11. Has your character's mother passed away? --> No

  12. Does your character live with its father? --> Yes

  13. Is your character the main character of the work in which he appeared? --> Yes

  14. Does your character have a sister? --> Yes

I noticed it says Elizabeth Bennet has already been played 2402 times. So I guess while the questions are not exactly descriptive of her, her popularity among the players lead the "Genie" guessing her right away?

He got it right when I thought of my hubby and the picture he used was this hot, naked guy holding a football betweeen his legs LOL.

That was fun! He got it right 2 out of 3 - Matt Damon and Castiel, and he didn't get it for David Duchovny :))

And I finally got it to guess Jamie Bamber last night! Yeah, I'm a dork. My little boy is completely enamored with the game -- I now have it installed on my iPhone -- yap, it came as an app too. ;-)

This "dude" impressed me for guessing Piggy from "Lord of the Flies" on first try! He also got Natasha Rostov from "War and Peace" on second try (its first guess was Katherina Minola from "Taming of the Shrew" \o/).
