You will need:
People to play, at least three.

How to play:
Choose someone to start, the Chooser
The Chooser selects a famous person (e.g.. Botticelli), they need to know a reasonable amount about the person, and gives the first letter of the person’s surname ("B").
The other players, the Guessers, now ask yes/no questions in turn, in this way: "Are you a man?"
This continues until the person has been narrowed down enough for a guesser to say "Are you ...?" The Chooser can say "Yes, I am ...." And the Guesser wins and becomes the next Chooser.
Or "No I am not ...." in which case the Guesser is out and cannot take part any further.
If no one guesses correctly the Chooser reveals the answer, arguments follow, then the Chooser can choose another.

1. Permit fictional characters, better for younger players.

2. Allow a Guesser to continue asking questions until he gets a "No" then the questioning passes to the next Guesser.

3. Use food instead, the game is then called "Vermicelli".

4. For a more complex way of opening the game, see
