Need a suggestion? Then try this game ....

Animal, Vegetable, Or Mineral?

This is a capital game for a large party, for it is both instructive and amusing. Two sides are picked, one has to guess what word or sentence the remainder of the company has chosen. They go out of the room, and when the subject has been decided upon, return and ask a question of each of the other side in turn. The answer must be either Yes or No, and in no case should more words be used, under penalty of paying a forfeit. The first important point to be found out is whether the subject is Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral. Supposing, for instance, the subject chosen is a cat which is sleeping in the room by the fire, the questions and answers might be like the following: Is the subject chosen an animal? Yes. Wild animal? No. Domestic animal? Yes. Common? Yes. Are there many to be seen in this town? Yes. Have you seen many this day? Yes. In this house? No. Have you seen many in the road? Yes. Do they draw carts? No. Are they used for working purposes? No. Is the subject a pet? Yes. Have they one in the house? Yes. In this room? Yes. Is it lying in front of the fire at the present time? Yes. Is the subject you all thought of the cat lying in front of the fire in this room? Yes. The subject having been guessed, another one is chosen and the game proceeds. The questions are limited to twenty, but it is hardly ever necessary to use that number.
