HOW TO PLAY
Although you’ll never beat me, I’ll tell you how to play anyway!
Make sure that the power ON/OFF switch is at the ON position.
Press and hold the
button to begin a new game. Once
you have started the game, think of something, anything and
answer my questions.
I’ll begin by asking if you’re thinking of an animal, vegetable, miner-
al, other, or unknown. Please press YES or NO to respond to my
question. Once this question is answered, game play advances and
I will display the next question.
I’ll ask you a series of questions that should be answered honestly
by pressing the YES, NO, SOMETIMES, RARELY, or UNKNOWN
button. I may try and guess what you’re thinking prior to 20 ques-
tions. However, once I’ve guessed, I’ll ask you if I’m correct and you
should respond by pressing the YES or NO button. If you tell me
that I’m correct, I win and the game is over. However, if I’m not cor-
rect, I will continue to ask additional questions and then guess
When I guess what you’re thinking, I win! If all my guesses are
wrong, you win. But don’t worry, that will never happen.
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY:

ber of questions 20Q will answer in wins.

Well, I know what you’re thinking! All you need to do is think of
something, anything and answer my questions. You’ll be amazed as
I guess your thoughts and you’re going to need all the help you can
get. That’s why this multi-player 360º dome was created. If I guess
