and got that one too. what answer did you get originally?

It's just another version of the 20 Questions game. Every time you ask a question it narrows the choice down by a particular attribute, i.e. if it asks whether the person in question is male or female, then you obviously eliminate a significant portion of the possible answers. Of course, it becomes more specific than a question of gender.

It's been around for a while now, and the answer bank has grown and grown due to the site allowing user submissions. At the beginning it wouldn't have gotten as many as it does now. You can still stump it at times, but you need to go for the less obvious and more obscure characters. Then if it doesn't get it right, you tell them who you were actually thinking of and the name goes into the answer bank along and becomes related to the questions/answers you were given/have given.

I'm not a maths person but it's probably a question of simple artificial intelligence algorithms.

Although I could be wrong ;-)

EDIT: The probability of it getting the correct character is obviously also subject to the input of the user, and a lot of the time it doesn't guess correctly because whoever's answering the questions screws up.

#16

#17
Thought of Kermit the Frog, it took until the 3rd gues and 38 questions to get it right, it guessed Swamp thing first and then some thing called Gumboo.

Crap Genie.
#18
this thing is great. it got george michael from arrested development with some very general questions.

took a wrong guess to get mongo from blazing saddles though

Tried it again, got it in the first guess, but 21 questions still.
Obviously it doesnt ask the same questions in the same order, thus takes longer for certain people.
#20
Just thought of Pamela Anderson, sixth question was did they star in the TV show Baywatch (answer Yes) 8th question was Has your character played in a TV show that takes place on a beach???????????????????????????????

I posted this a couple of weeks ago and it soon became obvious that a lot of the people saying it's crap and doesn't work ain't answering the questions correctly.

how does it know ?

It's a database and it highlights and removes fields according to the answers given....well that my theory anyway.

I've no idea who it was, a cartoon character beginning with A! On a horse with a sword. I think it's 'cus it asked if my character is old, and I said yes, because I was thinking of the book character, he's like 150 or something, but in the movie he is young I think...well looks young...duno!
#26

#31
that's strange - I just did sooty and it got it straight away.. must be a mixture of his questions and our answers.. things like "is you character real?" you could say yes or no to that one for sooty
banned#32
