20 Questions @ Hæleþes áwendende
 
Seeing as how we're short on Key news to discuss, why don't we play a little game?

I'm sure most of you have played 20 questions before, but I'll post the rules for the BBS version played over on Hakagi for those who haven't.

Original Thread:
http://pie.bbspink.com/test/read.cgi/leaf/1107615225/
______________________________________________________________________

Rules

1. The question setter comes up with a term (or phrase) specifically associated with Key (person, phenomena, song, etc).
The answer is given in tripcode form when the question is set so that the other players can check it afterwards.
It'd be a good idea to limit words to Kanon or Air for now. Nothing too obscure, please.

2. The other players ask a total of 20 Yes/No questions
Questions should be aimed at determining what the word is (eg. Is it a physical object? Is it a person?). Discussion of theories is encouraged amongst players. So that the question setter doesn't mistake discussion for a question, please phrase them in the form "Question: Is it a physical object?".

3. The question setter keeps a list of responses, giving out occasional hints.

4. After 20 questions have been asked, the players must decide on a final answer
The final answer should be phrased as "Final Answer: Is it (answer)?"

5. Have fun!

Appendix
The question setter should avoid answering misleading or subjective questions like "Is it tasty?".
______________________________________________________________________

The tripcode for the first question is
HHPDNn59fk

Let the questions begin! =P

Is it that juice that Yukito force-fed Misuzu?
EDIT: OK, this is a little unclear. Sometime in the game, Misuzu accedentially buys a undrinkable juice, and Yukito makes Misuzu drink it. It's either this or her peach juice or Hanako's beer.

AstCd2 2005-03-20 01:42

Correct!

The tripcode was #peachjuice

If no one has the next question and tripcode (or alternative encoded answer) up in the next hour, I'll put up another (much harder) question.

Hope you had fun! =P

Regarding Tripcodes
Tripcodes can be tested on 2ch or any other board that runs a similar script in the format of "#answer".

AstCd2 2005-03-20 02:43

The tripcode for the second question is
pZG1wBDFPU

Ask away.

I've definitely seen bigger breadboxes, so 'No'.

I was beginning to think that I'd have to give a hint, but you're well on your way to figuring this one out... or are you?
Off the top of my head, I can think of at least three things that fit the description so far =P

Is it the stuffed anteater Sayuri and Yuuichi bought?

Of course, depending on the size of your breadbox, question #1 could have made this a moot point...

Well done!

The tripcode was #snowrabbit.

If someone else hasn't put a question up by the time I finish my uni work tonight, I'll put up another one.

You guys are surprisingly good at this game, so I'll have to really push the envelope on this one =P

Haeleth 2005-03-21 02:25

I have one for you all!

MD5 sum of the answer (since I can't be bothered to go all the way to 2ch just to find the tripcode) is 5f788ff3b75e27aaafb1795475a385a2.

Ask away.
