After nine episodes, hundreds (or maybe thousands) of views
and handfuls of comments, I think it is safe to say if you're reading this you
know what to expect. You may recall last's months episode was perhaps the most
difficult episode to date and this one doesn't seem to be any easier. I'll
apologize up front and wish you all happy guessing.

As a reminder, the blog is basically a Game Informer
community edition of the "20 Questions" game...
Twenty Questions is a
spoken parlor game which encourages deductive reasoning and creativity. It
originated in the United States and escalated in popularity during the late
1940s when it became the format for a successful weekly radio quiz program. In
the traditional game, one player is chosen to be the answerer. That person
chooses a subject but does not reveal this to the others. All other players are
questioners. They each take turns asking a question which can be answered with
a simple "Yes" or "No." In variants of the game multiple
state answers may be included such as the answer "Maybe." The
answerer answers each question in turn. If a questioner guesses the correct
answer, that questioner wins and becomes the answerer for the next round. If 20
questions are asked without a correct guess, then the answerer has stumped the
questioners and gets to be the answerer for another round.
You may recall, the questions are generic and short enough
so the answers aren't glaringly obvious who the person is. I'm sure you can
identify many of the bloggers and commenters here by their writing style, but
with a one word answer, obviously that's not quite as revealing. So yeah, short questions = short answers.
Good luck. You'll need it. And with each of the questions, I provide a comment
after the fact, just to kind of throw my thoughts on the answer into the mix -
for the mystery gamer and the rest of the community to ponder.
