As of today, my collection is listed as having 1289 different boardgames. This total includes duplicate copies, varying editions, and several games in my trade stacks.

I've used random.org to generate a random number between 1 and 1289. This game I am offering as a prize to the winner of this contest.

The game is 20 Questions. You, the BGG Membership, must add an item to this Geeklist in order to ask a question which must be formatted so that my answer will be either "Yes" or "No." If a member can correctly identify the game within 20 questions, that member will win the game I've selected. If no one has asked for the correct game by then, I keep the game. Based on the response to this experiment, I may run future games of 20 Questions.

If you are guessing the game, and I have several versions, you will need to specify the exact version.

I only ask that the winner pay for postage. I'm losing my job soon, so my generosity is limited.

I have only one rule: No one person can ask 2 questions in a row. This will allow more people to participate.

Hint: DO NOT jump ahead and ask questions before I answer the previous one! It will do you well to get answers before asking more questions.

I won't be camped in front of my computer, so there may be long periods of time before I answer a question. This will also help more members get a chance at this. I thank you advance for your patience.

Good luck to everyone!
