    Default GAME: who am I?

    WHO AM I?

    I remembered an old Dutch TV gameshow which I used to like and watch regularly. Let's do it here, too!

    The rules:

    - I'll start off with writing the name of a famous person (known worldwide) on a piece of paper.

    - The first member that comes along who posts "I want to be it!" I will send a PM with the name.

    - Every other member may then post questions here to guess who that person could be.

    - The person who is "it" may only answer questions with YES, NO or I DON'T KNOW.

    - If a question is too tricky to answer accurately, please default to "I DON'T KNOW", so to avoid any confusion.

    - Members may only post 1 question at a time and/or 1 guess at a time. And you can only ask your next question once your current question has been answered. No limit on the amount of questions per day, though.

    - The person who correctly guesses it, gets to be "it" next. The previous person who was "it", will come up with a different famous person's name and will send it via PM to the person who currently is "it".

    - Try to create a little diversity. If the previous famous person was a politician, then choose for example a movie star. If we get too many singers, then throw in a well known poet into the mix, etc. I'll keep a list in this OP of the famous people we did so far.

    - The famous person has to be known world wide and should be guessable by any person who has not been living under a rock, that means also outside of the gaming community, so that everyone can join in this game. For example; Lakitu (a character from the Super Mario games) would be a bad choice, as not many people will know it. But Mario himself would be okay, because many people know him worldwide, even when they are not gamers themselves.

    - To further make sure the person is guessable, the person who is "it" MUST know the celeb. If not, a different celeb must be chosen.

    - If the person to be guessed is fictional and you are asked if you are alive/dead, please answer with "N/A", to avoid any confusion.

    - If the new member who is "it" doesn't start the new round within 3 days of being PM'd their new identity, the last person who was "it" may give the round to the first volunteer. This may not be the person who was "it" in the last 2 rounds. Similarly, if the member who is "it" is absent from the game for more than 3 days in a row, the person who gave the identity may temporarily take over answering questions in the absence of the person who is "it" until he/she is back.

    - If you are "it", make a little graphic for the winner as a reward if you can. This is not a rule and completely optional, but an encouraged FUN element to this game A few examples of what members have created for the winners in this thread:

    - No repeat identities.



    Ok......I've written down the first name. Should be an easy one to start off with.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand go!

    No, I am not female. Does that narrow it down?

    Driber, I forgot to ask, can I give out hints if I want?

    Hints, hmmm....didn't think about that. Let's make that up as we go along. I recon we should always be able to guess it if we get enough people to play the game and providing the celeb given is really worldwide know.

    Well, that *does* eliminate about 3.5 billion people already

    Well, that is also debatable but in a very broad sense, yes, "I" am a musician.

    No, not Sonny Bono either

    That would be a yes.

    Remember to form the questions so that the answer will be YES or NO
