My son received a 20Q for his eighth birthday. I had never bought one, assuming it was patterned after the old eight-ball fortune-telling toy. We were surprised and delighted when we started playing it and couldn't quit! The whole family was taking turns. We eventually had to buy another one, and I take it with me when I carpool four kids 25 minutes each way to school to keep them from fighting and complaining the whole way.This is quite a clever little device--I can't believe it's so affordable! It's based on the old game Twenty Questions. You think of something--sometimes the weirder the better--and see if the 20Q can guess what you're thinking of. It has been accurate on bizarre items like galaxy before! Don't underestimate its cleverness. It's also very entertaining to try to answer some of these questions, and to see some of the wrong guesses. I was thinking of a ceiling fan once, and it guessed a hyena! We've used it as a group as well--we'd see if the humans could guess it before the 20Q. We've had it for months and haven't gotten bored with it. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a fun game that you can carry anywhere.
