[Game] 20 Questions

757 posts / 0 new
Last post
So, I got bored and designed a card.

But instead of just revealing it for criticism, I've decided to let you folks *guess* the design, since new games are apparently all the rage right now ;)  You can do that by asking me yes or no questions and posting your guesses.  In case you are a penguin secretly accessing the internet from McMurdo Station and have never heard of 20 Questions, here are the rules adapted to YMTC in pretty much the most obvious way possible.

The Simple, Simple Rules
1. You may ask 1 yes or no question per post.
2. Each post, if you asked a question, you must design ONE card as your guess for that post.  For each post you make with a question, you get to design another card.  I won't answer a question that doesn't include a guess.
3. You don't have to wait for me to answer previous questions before asking another question and posting another guess.
4. No double questions unless no one else has asked a question for at least 1 hour.  Give everyone a chance to play!
5. Talking amongst yourselves and commenting on designs that everyone posts is very much allowed and welcomed!  Just try not to derail the thread too hard.

6. The person with the correct guess thinks up the next card and the game begins again.

Note: You don't have to guess the card's name or flavor text, but feel free to add it to your designs.  There are no custom keywords or anything like that.

Following Koridian's lead, I've decided to provide a hint after every 7 answers, regardless of those answers being "yes" or "no."
Old Rule
At any time if there are 5 "no" answers to questions in a row, I will give a hint.  This number may change based on how well things are progressing.


(If nobody likes this game, I will quietly let it wither to the recesses of YMTC, forgotton by all but Google, the Wayback Machine, and my eternal self-deprecation.)

Good luck!!

If it nay be a bird, pray tell, be it a creature at all?

Well, there isn't a lot to go off of:

Lasav, the Avianophobe
Legendary Creature - Shapeshifter

~ is all creature types except Bird.

Sacrifice a creature: ~ becomes a copy of target non-Bird creature except its name is ~ and maintains this ability.

Whenever a creature named Storm Crow enters the battlefield, ~ becomes a 0/1 colorless artifact creature named Rock and loses all abilities.

4/2
Standard Pauper! (play it on MTGO)
If it nay be a bird, pray tell, be it a creature at all?


Yes!  And Storm Crow still remains the dominant card in Magic, apparently.

Whenever Tricky Octopus becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls for the first time in a turn, counter that spell or ability.

Anteaters, the anti-green, green creatures.  It is not green!

Is it an obscure/rare creature type? (Like is it an Octopus, or Phelddagrif, or Whale?)


This question is a tricky as your guess!  Take care not to ask subjective questions.  But, in this case it's clear.  It is not a rare creature type.

Is it a multicolored card


For the princess, a hint shall be given, for multicolored it is not.  But rather perhaps a forgotten toy from her youth, long since the last time it was wound.

Is it aggro?


In haste to ask a question, do ensure the question is clear and can be well defined.  I'm not sure if presence in an aggro deck is where it ought, but aggro itself it is not.

Does the color of the card matter? I thought it was just  the question?

For the princess, a hint shall be given, for multicolored it is not.  But rather perhaps a forgotten toy from her youth, long since the last time it was wound.

This clue is refereincing Kayla-Bin-Kroog's Music box from her mother... or the key that Urza repaired for her that she used to wind it.

Someone already asked if its an artifact and I now know it must be... so my question is... does the card build up charge counters in some way?

Kayla's Key
Artifact
T: add a charge counter to Kayla's Key
Remove a charge counter from Kayla's key: add 1 to your manapool

2. Each post, if you asked a question, you must design ONE card as your guess for that post.  For each post you make with a question, you get to design another card.  I won't answer a question that doesn't include a guess.

It has three less than yours ever could.  It has no evergreen keywords.

Someone already asked if its an artifact and I now know it must be... so my question is... does the card build up charge counters in some way?


It must be an artifact, that much is true, but it also must be a creature, too.  It does not build up charge counters.

Ok everyone, only 4 questions left, so lets think about this. Its an artifact creature with a cmc of either 4, 3, 1 or 0. P/T is less than 3 and has an ability that doesn't and isn't evergreen.

Question: Does its power equal its toughness?

A note up front, to clear up any misunderstanding.  You have as many questions as it takes to get the right answer.  The round won't end when exactly 20 questions have been used.

Does its power equal its toughness?


It's power and toughness are lopsided waves in a bathtub the toy boat sets sail on.  It's power does not equal its toughness.

does it have an ETB ability?


Like a new gift right out of the box, a child's eyes light up from the sight of a......present   It has an ETB ability.

Power is power and mana is to, is it a creature that adds mana too?


You've caught the idea with your lotus flower catcher; it does indeed add mana with it's tiny stature.

Congratulations Koridian!  It's your turn to think of a card -- when you're ready to accept questions, go ahead and kickoff the next post!  You don't have to rhyme your answers, lol -- I'm not really sure why I started, but it just snowballed from there.

HA!  But you were right   Since I didn't see the edit, before I posted, you still win.  Ideally, you don't change your guess though ;)
