I am pretty sure most - if not all - of you know this silly game.

In case you do not:
Usually each player is assigned a historical or famous person and has to figure out who he/she is only by asking "Yes" or "No" questions to gather clues about "their" name.

Whenever I played this I was frustrated with the limited range of possibilities, for when you are stuck with "Homer Simpson", "Indiana Jones", "Britney Spears" and "Donald Duck", this is not quite as interesting as it could be.

Here, I believe, this could be really fun.

Modified to forum use, rules are as follows:
"Head" player chooses a somebody he knows enough about to answer most questions. Everybody else can ask questions which will then be answered by the current head player as truthfully as possible using only Yes or No. If the answer is not known, the answer can be "Is not known." e.g. Q: Do you believe time travel is possible? and I am answering as, say, Werner Forssmann.

Whoever first guesses correctly will - upon approval of correct guess - automatically become the new head player and assume responsibility by reiterating "Who am I?" to signal beginning of a new round.

And obviously, lacking volunteers, I'll go first:

Here goes.

Who am I?

Strike, Blade. Niccolò Machiavelli it is. Very good. [Hat]

He's my favorite historian/politician, by the way. "The Prince" is fascinating.

Your turn.

Q: Have you died?

What is the average wind speed of a laden African Swallow?...oh wait, wrong question.

Are you a philosopher?

(ps, when I read "The Prince" in public, people gave me the strangest looks. Worried my manager a bit as well.)

@Darth_Mauve How interesting! Wrong continent, though...
And I understand your manager's fear.^^

Blade, are you an advocate of peace (as opposed to a warmonger)?
