[Forum Game] Wide minds
« on: December 24, 2008, 20:16:02 »

So this is how it works:

I will submit a question in the following format:

How many _______ names can you think in 10 seconds?

So I would say how many cruise ship companys can you think of in 10 seconds?
You will have ten seconds to write down exactly what comes into your minds.
NO CHEATING! IT SPOILS THE GAME!

So if I asked that question to myself, I will do the following:

Cunard
Holland America
Carnival
Celebrity cruises
White Star Line
Royal Carribean
Aida

But the rules are strict!

Cunard - Wrong!
Holland America - correct
Carnival - correct
Celebrity cruises - correct
White Star Line - Wrong!
Royal Carribean - correct
Aida - correct

Why is cunard wrong? Because the actual name of Cunard is Cunard White Star Line!
And why is white star line wrong? It wasnt a cruise ship company - it was a ocean liner company!

BONUSES

If you answer with all names in the same format (e.g. You will put "line" or "cruises" or put nothing after each one) will give you one extra point. But you can't just go Royal Carribean line - thats not their name and will not count. The bonus counts only of the names are in that format.

Remember - a correct answer is 1pt.
Lets see who gets the most right

REMEMBER - 10 SECONDS NO CHEATING! CHEAT YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

How many cruise ship companies THAT I HAVNT NAMED ABOVE can you name in 10 seconds?

GO!

How many different types of ships can you think of in 10 seconds?

you cannot include these:

Warships of any kind - aircraft carriers or battlecruisers - any ship that is used on war
Commercial ships - no cruise ships - no ocean liners - no ferries, no ships which carry people.
Cargo ships - no bulk carriers, no oil tankers, no chemical carriers - no ships which transport goods.

Oooooh - That was narrowed down quite alot

Fishing trawler
Drugboat
Police boat
Prison ship
Tramp Steamer

Lifeboat, yacht and prison boat carry people.
Pirateship is a warship
Fishing trawler, drugboat and the steamer carry goods what makes them a cargo vessel.

I rest my case.

perhaps not yatch or prison boat, but lifeboat is not a commerical service - actually, neither is a prison ship!

when I say thing, I mean ANY noun exept pronouns or Proper nouns (e.g. your name or a place) ANY Object

ship
boat
sea
rock

etc.

YOU CANNOT CONTAIN ANY FOUR FROM ABOVE

This isnt a trick question... don't worry. Just want to see how many endless ideas you get. remember 10 seconds and none of the four above
