The rules and explanation of this game are located here.
I have thought of something for you to guess. If you choose to play this game, your goal is to discover the, "ultimate answer". In other words, your goal is to learn the thing I have thought of. Make sure you have read the rules of the game so that you know how to phrase your questions, AND so that you know what to ask. Each time you think of a question to ask me, fill out this form. Read this page well, before you fill it out. Also, make sure you read the "answer page" so you know what other people are asking. This will provide clues to you, and it will prevent you from asking questions which have already been asked. When you hit the "submit" button at the bottom of this page, the form will end up in my inbox. I will follow your instructions on this form. I will either send you an E-mail to answer your question, or I will let you read the answer on the "answer page". If you have any questions, let me know.
(since this is our first try, I am giving more clues than normal)
to guess is:
Amendment to the rules: (sort of)
Normally, I play this game with just me and Douglas. It is to keep Douglas awake as he drives. We have played this game with more than one "player" before. In most of those cases, the "players" were sitting around in one place. I don't remember a situation where one person asked a bunch of questions and then a third person got the "ultimate answer" correct. That may have happened, I just don't remember. It would be more fair if people sort of waited until all the "players" got their questions in before someone started on a new round of questions. Playing this via E-mail might make that difficult. Until we get going we won't know how many "players" there will be if any. And then someone (a stranger) might accidentally run across this on the Internet (after we have been going a while) and decide they want to play. I will have to watch as these forms get "spam" to them when they have been up and running for a time. The "spam" won't end up on the "answer page" as this is set up so I can screen things. If you have any thoughts on this, let me know.
