Saw this in my local Tesco's. Looked a steal at this price.

Ok, well that's just not possible. How can a small plastic ball with a few flashing LEDs on it keep someone occupied for hours on end without firing anything, playing any music or, like... doing anything at all much? Simply by reading your mind, of course. OK, it doesn't read you mind, but it does manage to tell you what you're thinking with alarming regularity.

Remember the game '20 questions' - you know, all that Animal, Vegetable or Mineral stuff? Well the 20Q original and the updated Version 2 are past masters at it though we've no idea quite how they manage it probably something to do with algorithms. You think of an object, and they will then ask you a series of questions, and much to our surprise, manage to guess what it was you were thinking of. There are occasional questions which have you wondering about its sanity, such as "Does what you are thinking of weigh more than a duck?"... what kind of duck? A wet duck, or a dry duck - hey, how much does a duck weigh anyway???

Nevertheless, mad as it all may seem, these utterly compelling little beasts are darn good guessers - you really begin to wonder how they crammed all the intelligence in there. If the little blighters manage to guess what you are thinking within 20 questions, it wins; if not, you win. It's rather depressing just how many times they succeed!

Choose between the original 20Q or the new, Version 2.0 which has a UK database (so that means the vocab is more lift than elevator), is up to date on current trends, and features an undo button for changing your mind. Whether you win or lose, you're guaranteed to be addicted to the 20Qs for one heck of a long time (and it makes commuting time go in a flash!).

To see how the 20Q actually works, take a look at http://www.20q.net and try some of the questions...

Don't buy this item!.......................... it will drive you mad. Seriously these are great and at this price a real bargain
#2
I've just had a couple of goes with it. It's scarily acurate.
#3
I bought my girlfriend one of these as one of her Xmas presents in December and it was about £15 then so this is a great deal.
#4
These are really great, it asks loads of random questions like "Will it fit in a fridge?" and then somehow gets it - amazing!!!:w00t:

Worth ten times this much!
#5
I used to work in the gadgetshop (before it went bust lol) and we hardly sold these even though I thought they were well clever. Someone showed me it and was like think of something and I was like moo haha - "chinchilla" (cause I have a wee chinch!) and it guessed and I was liek WTF! It does get stuff wrong though!
#6
haha what a price! It guessed 'ninja' the first time i used one of these! No I'm not a ninja, just love the 'whiteninja' comics...google it!
Anyway, HOT price, good find!!
#7

Is it bigger than a duck ?

Playing this thing is a bit surreal but excellent fun, worth every penny.

We gave four to friend as Xmas presents at £5 each from Sainsburys.

#13
This thread has inspired me to dig out my 20Q and crack open some fresh AAA's. For anyone interested, i played two games and thought of two things each time - "motorbike" and "peace".

20Q asked seemingly random questions and then guessed "motor scooter" and "passion" respectively - it still amazes me!:thinking:
#14

#16

Does anyone know if these are version 2 or not?

(One way to tell is that only version 2 has an undo button)

I think these (or certainly a version of these) are made by a company called Radica. I only know that because I went for a job with them a while back and they were looking at overhauling their whole image. Something which seems to have happened since the last time I looked on their site.

i want one.... no tesco around.... link for online version (could google but feeling lazy)

don't know about playing online, but you can buy online, although best part of £10 + delivery from Tesco Direct.
or £7.99 delivered from Play.com
no doubt other suppliers are available....
but great in-store deal from Tesco. Heat.
#23
great price ,my son has the bigger one great fun voted hot
#24
I bought a couple of these at around this price- possibly £2.32 at tesco in huddersfield about 3 mths ago, so might not be in all stores.

We bought our daughter one for xmas- i had to wrap it up in the end as i was forever thinking of things and getting it out of its hiding place to play it lol :oops:

I bought 2 to keep in as emergency presents- the first will be given this saturday- i hope he will enjoy it as much as i do lol.
#25
god i love this game - so addictive and frwaky as it guesses correctly even if think the question waas hard. Will have to get one! Anyone know if Tesco in Oldham/Manchester area have them??
#26
I tried one in asda, twice, and it got it completely wrong both times. Complete rubbish. Might be worth £2.12 though.
#27
Pity its instore only

Good find - voted hot
#28

I couldn't believe the price too... so hunted it down in Burnley tonight. Still marked up at normal price.
#36
These are ace I got one a couple of years ago. It drives you mad cos its always right! brilliant price. :thumbsup:
#37
I nipped to Tesco in Asbhy yday thinking theyd have them (Id seen them on sale in there loads of times), looked all over but found none, I asked a sales assistant and she said 'they were reduced a while ago to a clearance price..'
..so maybe the smallish Tescos will have them at that cheap price (if theyve still got some left), and the really big Tescos will still be selling them at full price.. who knows. Wouldve liked to have given it a go at that price though!

..pretty sure they'll be plenty popping up on fleabay soon now!
