Welcome to the Third Middle Earth 20 Questions topic! The rules are very simple. The game works just like regular 20 questions (if you don't know how to play that, google it :P) only everything is LOTR related. Here are some basic rules:
Whoever's turn it is starts by thinking of something from LOTR. It can be a a person, race, place, event, etc. For example if I start, I'd say something like.... "I'm thinking of of someone who hinders Frodo and Sam" Don't make it so obvious, just an example ;) The answer would be Faramir. Anyone and everyone can contribute to the 20 questions that can be asked, to narrow down the answer. After 15 questions and no one has gotten the answer, there are 5 more questions to ask, however: they can only be guesses of the answer. If after all 20 questions have been asked, no one is right, whoever's turn it was is the winner, and he/she may either go again, or give his or her turn to someone else.
One more thing! When guessing, be sure to include the number before your question. For example:
Samwise Gamgee: 3) Is this place scary?
Fredegar Bolger: 4) Is this place near the Shire?
This helps us know when 15 or 20 questions have been reached, so no one has to go back and count comments ;) Permalink
