I've played with the little handheld units in the stores, and wasn't impressed. This online version, however, was pretty smart and guessed 4 out of 5 things I threw at it. Note that the "Classic 20Q" is the smartest, the others are newer and haven't learned as much.

I was actually shocked when it seemed to almost read my mind on the first item. I know it was coincidental timing of a standard question, but it still threw me. I was looking at the whiteboard across my desk so figured I'd start with the that. The SECOND question, after the animal/vegetable/mineral/other question, was "can you write on it?" I thought, "Woahhhh..." ) It guessed correctly at Q19 btw. It also guessed "bookcase" by Q18, and "fan" and "remote control" by Q15 or so. It failed to guess "printer" although it had it in its database, but my answers threw it off. It was nitpicking over things like whether a printer "processes data" or "displays anything."

That was pretty fun...it managed to guess a lot of what I was thinking about. And it totally nailed all the Disney Princesses my 7 year old was thinking about.

i remember when this game first came out, someone had it at school and everyone said that they thought the ball heard what you said, so they'd tell you to not say it out loud cause it would guess it easier that way...

Thank you tjwor! I was trying to remember where I'd seen this before. I searched the forums a couple times but couldn't find it. Someone had brought one of those 20Q ball thingies to a Christmas or New Year's party. You see, sometimes I get real life and FiPG mixed up...

This thing sucks at guessing animals.

I love playing 20q's, had never seen the online version before though

This just reminded me of this thing, I'm not trying to jack your thread, but I'm sure some of you have heard of this. Peteranswers.com

It's great. If you Wikipedia it, you can learn how to make it work and if you have someone with you that doesn't know about it, you can really really mess with them... That thing was freaking me out when I was introduced to it hahaha.
