A guessing game type of puzzle where you can only ask YES/NO type of questions. (e.g. Is it a person? Is it a place? Is it red?) You just have to guess what/who I am thinking of. This would be useful for guessing small details in an LTP. :P Fire!

is it used for entertainment? for job? for convinence? for apperance? for school/education? concidered a nessesity for life?

is it an appliance?

would it be found inside a house? on an individuals property? on a buisness property? on govermental property? on property not designated in any of the above ways?

would one of these objects belong to a single person? or is 'ownership' not an obvious quality?
