Imagine Derren Brown meets Paul McKenna meets David Blane, all wired into HAL9000 then given special Jedi powers! Squash this all down into a small plastic ball that fits into the palm of your hand and you have 20Q... Intrigued? Well prepare to be absolutely dumbfounded! Think of anything you want, answer a series of 20 simple questions (hence the name 20Q - geddit!) and 20Q will miraculously work out what you're thinking of! Don't think that the questions all require difficult answers though.
Oh no... 20Q only has 'yes', 'no' or 'sometimes' buttons! With questions such as 'It is larger than a microwave oven?', 'Can it swim?' and 'Is it flat?' 20Q will somehow work out that you are thinking of a giraffe, a frying pan, a potato or pretty much anything else that you can think of! If it fails with its first 20 questions it will ask another 5 questions before admitting defeat, not that this will happen very often! The idea of the game is to beat 20Q.
If it answers within 20 questions it wins. If not, you win! Try it! Try thinking of the most ridiculous things imaginable, yet most times 20Q will still flummox you and guess what it is! It even teases you with phrases such as 'I know everything!', 'I'm gonna win!' and 'You can do better than that!' just to rub it in that it keeps guessing what you're thinking! Sure, you'll beat it sometimes, but if you answer truthfully and give it a little bit of flexibility (we thought of a saucepan, it came up with frying pan!) it will work out most things you can ever think of! If you've seen the TV adverts, you'll have seen the amazement in people when it guesses their answers! We can almost guarantee that you and your friends will be equally astonished! We were! 20Q will give you hours of fun and probably years of absolute amazement, mainly trying to work out how the heck it works! Press Reviews: 'Does it work? All too well.
It gets it all the time... To make matters worse it gloats!' Sunday Tribune 'A toy that can really read your mind!' News of the World '...is - and I promise I'm not pretending -...
