"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

@oscar001, @aladdin, @mohit_singh, @Zom,
The 4 of us played "20 questions", a game where you have to discover the thing the riddle master is thinking of. For that you ask yes/no questions. You get a "yes" you can keep asking, You get a "no", the next player asks. The tricky bit is that you have to find "the thing" before accumulating 20 NO replies from the riddle master.

Tonight, No doubt @oscar001 was the best. He won 2 games out of the 3 we play.

Game 1- RiddleMaster: @Zom with "Beermat"
--> Winner @oscar001 just before reaching the 20 NOs. 
Game 2- RiddleMaster: @oscar001 with "cap"
 --> Winner @aladdin after only 3 NOs. ^^
Game 3- RiddleMaster: @aladdin with "screwdriver"
--> Winner @oscar001  after  10 NOs. ^^

See you next Thursday for the next 20 Questions game. Same place, same time. ^^
It befits a man to be merry and glad
Until the day of his death.

    Just a question to @Lynne about "Beermat" or "coaster" what is the general name for it. that you can use it for all .
    Because I use things like the flowing for my cup of tea

    True it's not so easy at first to find the right questions to discover the answer before the 20 NOs, but as you said @mohit_singh, it's a fun game. I love it. :D

    See you next Thursday.

    You're very welcome @aladdin. For me, it was a fun game. See you there next day!!!
  • oscar001oscar001 Posts: 80 ✭✭✭
    Thank you @Zom. By the way, where is the prize I deserve after so much fighting?
    On the other hand, I must tell you that for the first word, I waited until last opportunity (question #20) to make it a gripping game... (LOL).
    Seriously, I have fun playing with you all. Thank you very much.

    The prize is a badge @oscar001, but the badgesmith is away at the moment. Just be patient. ^^

    Looking forward to having you again next Thursday. :D
