Jan | 14170 comments Interactive 20 Question Game
Ongoing

Commercial Photography

Let's play the travel version of 20 Questions. I will start us off with a *location I have chosen and you will need to ask YES/NO Questions to guess where it is.

The group will get 20 Questions to come up with the correct answer. If it isn't discovered by then a new location will be chosen.

If you are the lucky person to guess the location correctly you get to choose the next location and be the person answering the next group of questions. If you don't want to monitor the question asking you can either have me choose a new location for you or you can send the location to me via PM and I will answer the questions for you.

*The locations can be:
✦ A "famous" city
✦ A famous landmark or monument
✦ A National Park
✦ A famous tourist attraction
✦ A famous mountain, lake, river, etc.

The word famous just means that it is going to be something that is not too obscure or impossible to figure out.
