Re: Something fun to do.

I manage to win a couple of times! Its not my fault that i was thinking of some athletes that were known before the internet was invented.

Hmmm lets see if this guy knows Basil Fawlty. Or maybe Manuel...



Edit: Yes and yes (at the second try this one though)

Didnt see that coming!

Re: Something fun to do.

He didn't know Basil Brush.

Hopeless...

EDIT: I stand corrected. I pressed 'go on', and three questions later he got him!

I'm impressed.

EDIT: Tinky Winky!

Re: Something fun to do.

Lack of imagination - Rick Stein was on the box - but he had 3 attempts and gave up.

Guesses were Jamie Oliver (Gordon Ramsey was also hinted at), David Attenborough (??) and Johnny Walker (as in the red coated dandy off the bottle).

Re: Something fun to do.

Update: Tried to play again and he told me he's lost and not willing to play with me

Re: Something fun to do.

Even more impressive: He got Mehmet II.

I'm obsessed with this game now...

He knew Helen of Troy and Lord Byron, but didn't know Samuel Johnson or Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Bit hit and miss, but lots of fun.

Re: Something fun to do.

Ha, I was thinking Bismarck, but he thought I was thinking about another person, and he said, "Am I lost? Would you mind starting a new game?".

Awesome.

Re: Something fun to do.

He failed on Bertrand Piccard but very nice game.
Also failed to find Vladimir Nabokov.

Re: Something fun to do.

I tried Jeremiah Johnson and on the second round he guessed "The A** F*** Twins (Orgasmo)".

Edit- He did guess Ernie from Sesame Street correctly.
