This is the 2010 version of the game that was last published in 2003-'04. The same four categories are back, person, place, thing and year. They've added some new things to the clues, like "Move even with the leading player." They still have things like "Move ahead (or back) two (or three) spaces," "Lose a turn" and "Take one free guess chip."

Some spaces on the board allow players to move ahead a few places. With my groups, we usually get the answer in less than 10 clues, but there are exceptions. There's usually one "dead-on" clue on each card that unless you're in a coma should give you the answer.

The fewer clues it takes you to get the answer, the further you move on the board. Years are the toughest since you have to give the exact year to score. The "question mark" playing pieces are a nice touch as well. Modern day celebs like Britney Spears are included with stuff you learned in school years ago, so young and old alike will be able to play this game together.

We played 20 Questions with family and friends at Christmas time. It was a great success because all ages could be included. Some questions were harder than others which was good because it kept everyone's interest.

I searched high and low for this game and was lucky to find it at Amazon. It is an excellent "trivial pursuit" type of game, but much, much better. I find it great with partnering up with younger members of my family and the young ones really enjoy it as well. I highly recommend this game!

Great family game and at the same time quite educational. We found out about it from our 5th grader who played it at school and wanted it for his birthday!

The object of 20 Questions is to be the first person to reach finish by identifying people, places, years and things through clues.

You start playing 20 Questions by placing your playing piece at the start. Put the red chips along the edge of the game board and the card deck in the center of the game board face down. The cards contain topics and questions. The topic will be a person (living or dead, male or female, real or fictional), a place (geographic locations), a year or a thing (not alive). The questions are numbered 1 through 20 and they describe the topic.

You start the game by one person pulling a card (we will call them the reader) and stating that the topic is a person, place or thing. The player on their left (we will call them the guesser) says a number between 1 and 20 and then covers that number on the board with a red chip. The reader reads the clue that is numbered with the number the guesser asked for. The guesser has 10 seconds to guess who or what the topic is. If the guesser incorrectly guesses, play continues to the next person. If the guesser guesses correctly they move their playing piece.

This is where it gets tricky. The amount moved will vary as to how many times it took to guess the correct topic. Let's say you guess the topic in 7 tries, the guesser will move ahead 13 spaces and the reader will move 7 spaces.

I think some of the categories are difficult for younger children.

All in all, I think this is a good game. It is very educational, I think my son has learned a lot from it. It was also challenging for me at times. This game is definitely for the whole family. I would highly recommend this game; it's fun and educational.

This is a really fun game, some of the clues are very easy and you can guess them on one clue, others will take all 20 and then you will scratch your head wondering why you couldn't guess it earlier. The only negative comment is that the movement rules gets you around the board pretty quick, especially if you are playing with two players/teams. We "fix" this by adding more "laps" to the game board. But we love this game! The game works like this: a player picks a card and states "I am a person, or a place, or thing or a year." Then the other players take turns picking a number which corresponds to a clue on the card the player has in his hand. He reads it and then you get to guess. If you do not guess correctly, the next person gets to pick another clue and so one. Movement comes when the clue is guessed correctly. So if it took 5 clues to guess the answer, that person gets to move 15 spaces and the person who read the card gets to move 5. Therefore you can see how you can move around board pretty fast, especially if you guess it on the first clue. (*Example: The clue is the "Year 2000", the first clue is "I do not like the letters Y and K")
