Playing Twenty Questions with Pebbles – an Exercise in Futility

When we play Twenty Questions with Pebbles the person who is It states the beginning letter of the object they’re thinking of. Our way of sneaking in homeschool under the guise of fun.

Twenty Questions text

Pebbles: Okay. I’m thinking of something that starts with the letter D.
Me: Is it an animal?
Pebbles: NO!
The Rock: Do we have one in our house?
Pebbles: NOOO!!! (Like we were supposed to already know this.)
Me: Is it alive?
Pebbles: NOOO!! HAHAHAHAHA! (Like that’s the most ridiculous question she’s ever heard.)
The Rock: Is it something you can eat?
Pebbles: BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! NOOOO!! (Like that’s an even more ridiculous question.)
Me: Can it fit in our car?
Pebbles: No. Wait, yes. Wait, maybe.
The Rock: Does it…
Pebbles: Wait. It doesn’t start with D.
Me: What?!
Pebbles: D is actually the last letter.
Me: Okay. So what’s the first letter?
Pebbles: D.
Me: So it does start with D?
Pebbles: It’s actually two words.
Me: Okay. So what letters do the two words start with?
Pebbles: Well, it’s actually one word but it’s made out of two words.
Me: So it’s a compound word? (See how I snuck that homeschooling moment in there?)
Pebbles: Yeah. Okay. The first word starts with F and the other word starts with D.
Me: Is it FuriousDestroyer?
Pebbles: YES!!!

At this point it’s a good thing The Rock had zoned out and was no longer listening. He’d never in a million years have guessed the answer because, unlike me, he is not a Minecraft aficionado. And also unlike me, he isn’t making Pebbles’ Halloween costume.

Wanna guess what she’s gonna be for Halloween? I’ll give you twenty guesses. It starts with D. No, wait. It ends with D. Wait, it’s made up of two words.

How about I just post a photo later?

    Does she ever start the game then halfway through start guessing what the object is because she forgot she was the judge. Now we both don’t know and it is fifty questions to see what she was looking at.

    • LOL! I can imagine how fun that would be! And I’m assuming you’ve had this experience with your own little girlies.

      Pebbles has a mind like a steel trap. She *never* forgets. Unless it’s something we need her to remember. Like where she left the Kindle. Or her shoes.
