Instructions for 20 questions

Play this game of 20 questions in your group.

How to play

  1. The first person thinks of any noun. It can be an object, food, plant, animal, or anything.
  2. Take turns guessing. Keep track of how many guesses you do.
  3. Answer the guesses with only a yes, no or sometimes.
  4. When the 20 guesses are up, the person has to say what it was. Since no one guessed it, they go again. If someone guessed it, they get to do it next.


  • Do not choose an overly specific thing to guess.
  • Do not choose an obvious thing to guess.
  • Do not choose something that other people may not know about.
  • Do not choose something that you aren't able to accurately answer questions about.
