    "Guess Who?" CP Style

    Because TF has been lacking a game for a while.

    *PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST*

    Basically, it's Guess Who? except it's with carnivorous plants. Some rules are modified however, but this is how it goes:

    I start off (or the person who guess correctly) and pick a plant, and you guys begin to guess. You can guess random plants, but it's better to narrow down the category the plant is in and then take a guess. For example:

    "Does the plant have pitchers? If so, is it Nepenthes ventricosa? (or) If not, drosera capensis?" But you can't do a guess that crosses out TWO OR MORE categories, such as, "Does the plant have pitchers? If so, it is a Nepenthes?" (or) "Is the plant a Nepenthes? If not, is it a Sarracenia?" Makes guess too quick.

    The person who has a plant pick must answer the questions correctly in order and list what has been answered "yes" or "no" and incorrect guesses.

    Here's an example of how the game should go:

    "Picked a plant. Guessing a-gogo!"

    "Is the plant a Nepenthes? If so, Nepenthes truncata?"

    "Does the plant have pitchers? If so, Sarracenia flava?"

    "Drosera aliciae?"

    "Yes, no, yes, no, no.

    Nepenthes - yes
    Pitchers - yes

    Incorrect guesses: Nepenthes truncata, Sarracenia flava, Drosera aliciae."

    And when a person correctly guesses a plant, it is his/her turn to pick a plant and have people guess.

    One more important thing, DO NOT PICK AN UNCOMMON CULTIVAR OR HYBRIDS. SPECIES OR COMMOM CULTIVARS ONLY (Such as Dana's Delight, Judith Hindle, Lady Pauline, B52) SO THAT IT IS NOT INCREDIBLY HARD.

    Ok, ready?

    GUESSING A-GOGO!

    Edit: And another thing. If the guessings go on for too long of a time and people can't seem to guess the plant, please give out your answer and pick the next person to be it.

    Edit #2: Height: Tall - +10", medium - 6"- 10", small - 6" - Whatever.

    Technically, that'd be two categories, but I'll let it slide.

    Anyway, no and no.

    Sticky - no
    Drosera - no.

    No and no. But seeing you're asking about height, I'll say that 10 inches+ is considered tall.

    Sticky - no
    Drosera - no
    Pitchers - yes
    10"+ pitchers - no.

    Incorrect guesses: Heliamphora minor, Sarracenia alata.
