    I thought of Kate Jackson's character on Charlie's Angels and he tried three times before I gave up. . .

    Why did you tell about this, I have been doing for half an hour now. Fun!
    I stumped them with Merv Griffin though. So much fun.

    This operates off of a huge database with a superb search program that operates in reverse. By our questions it reduces the number of possible choices until it comes down to a few, then it asks a key question that points to one of the remainder. I was a database programer in a previous life. (25 years ago). Knowing that, I have stumped it a few times. Notice, if you go to the end, it asks you to put in the characters name, thus building on itself for the next one. Got Rhett Butler but not "Fritz the Cat" or Darth Vader.

    He got Gregory Peck on the first try, but he took four tries to get Roddy McDowall, and he did NOT get Neville Brand.

    Fun to play though.

    nope, not even close. I was thinking of Sam Elliot and he guessed H. Heffner.

    I tried two of our former Prime Ministers ... Kim Campbell and John Diefenbaker, and he nailed it!

    Took more Q+A's before he came up with Lucy Maude Montgomery. Just tried Scott Thompson, first guess he went with Brent LeRoy, about six more questions and he got Scott. Almost stumped him with Buddy Cole .... he came up with seven possibilities, including Scott who plays him, then eventually got it

    Curious for the ones who stumped him, were your people "very" obscure? And were you answering a lot of I don't knows or probably/nots? I wasn't sure how to answer some of the questions when it was a character role, so expect that caused the long-drawn-out session.

    I guess this is programed like the computer that played Jeopardy on TV!!

    Did you keep going to see if he'd figure it out?
