    \"What in the world?\" - Round 2

    The Rules:

    ** Staff are not allowed to participate **

    1) HelenHeaven is in charge of the games, all questions regarding play should be deferred to her.

    2) Rules are in place for fair play. Being BIG PEOPLE we know what is playing fair and what is not. If you have to ask if it is fair, then I think you already know the answer. Anything deemed unfair will be bannable.

    3) As with anything else in life. All rules are subject to change without notice.

    4) The winner of a game will recieve the custom title ::GameMaster::

    5)::GM:: keeps title for a month or until next game, then must try to maintain their title against a new challenge.

    6)::GM::'s go in a Hall of Fame
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What in the World?

    1) Each member may ask ONE yes/no/north/south/east/west question per day.
    Day is considered 24 hours from 12 midnight GMT.
    Example: Is the thing a man? NO.
    Example: Is the location Antartica? Too far south.

    **All locations will be relative to the object **

    2) HH answers each inquiry.

    3) Object of the game: To find a time, place, and item.

    4) If you get a yes answer, then you are allowed to ask one more question. There is a daily limit of five questions per member.

    5) Winner will be the first person to identify the exact object at the exact location. The FINAL answer is NOT a question, it is a statement of the date, location, item. This can only be made once all three have been verified by a question.
    ***CLARIFICATION: If a member gets a no answer but the resulting answer reveals the final part of the puzzle, they MAY post the answer.

    6.) There are to be no more double negative questions.
    EX. The item is NOT the Mona Lisa, correct?

    7.)4 prelims, then a 4-way finals round, once a person wins a prelim they cant participate until the finals, all other participants may try again.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This rounds goal, guess a date/location/item

    Please read the rules VERY carefully, Penny is excluded from the next rounds as they are already in the finals. If they want to help someone via u2u that is OK, but they do not get to guess. -Sorry
