Yes / No Game Rules
From Bushwalk Australia
- The latest winner posts the next scenario or occurrence. Though the scenario can be about anything, it is preferred to try and come up with one with a bushwalking theme. Either some interesting things that might have occurred while out in the bush on a walk, or while preparing for a walk.
- All forum members can be player in the game.
- Players try to guess the correct circumstance that lead to the scenario. Each player can post one guess in the form of a question.
- The person who posted the scenario answers each players question by quoting it and responding with either YES or NO.
- Players then guess again and wait for another answer.
- The first person to guess the correct circumstance for the scenario wins.
- The winner must either:
- promptly post a new scenario,
- give his/her turn to another person who can promptly post, or
- post a forfeit, in which case any Player can post the next scenario
Playing the game
- The person who posted the scenario should try to answer questions as promptly as possible.
- Multiple players can ask questions before answers are provided.
- If you are the winner, try to post a new scenario as quickly as possible.
- If the winner does not post within 24hrs, the turn is forfeited and anyone can post the next scenario.
- If the winner forfeits (option c) then anyone can post the next scenario.
Options when unable to monitor the game
- Proxy: If the person who posts a scenario is unable to monitor the game, he/she may select another player to act as proxy. To do this simply PM the correct answer to that player. (You can PM the site Moderators/Administrators if no one else is available).
- Forfeit: The person controlling the scenario can forfeit at any time by simply posting the correct answer and normal forfeit rules apply. This is a less preferable option. Proxy is a better choice if at all possible.
Possible answers to the questions are
- Unknown: the answer is unknown or has no bearing on the result (used if you are unable to answer yes or no).
- Correct: Yes, that is the answer. (to differentiate from YES and conclude the current scenario).
