I thought I had it stumped with Arnold J Rimmer (from the tv show red dwarf) but then it asked if my character had already died. I knew the game was up then.

Fooled it with The Unknown Soldier, though this may be asking slightly too much of it.

Guessed Daniel Kitson after 30 which is pretty impressive.

Defeated it again with Muriel Spark, who really isn't at all obscure.

I kind of enjoy "introducing" it to new people, though.

Wasn't expecting it to get Manny Bianco. Although the first guess was Sir Digby Chicken-Ceasar

Also thought I had it on the ropes with Simon Bellamy from misfits. Alas it had him on the third try.

It didn't get Dora Carrington or Lytton Strachey, but for Carrington it did suggest Virgina Woolf so it was in the right area.

also it got Al Cisneros from OM

and Jack Aubrey

and Neige

and Wata

and it didn't have  La sale Famine de Valfunde

it got Minus from the webcomic of the same name.  I'm impressed

q no 15: Has your character won the Stanley Cup?


.... :cry: Not yet.

edit: weird! It guessed Anje Kopitar, which I suppose fits, but Anje Kopitar is no David Krejci.

And neither is Ales Hemskey. Or Ovechkin. STUMPED.

Those may be the obscure people Linds

I love it when you stump and he is always making that face, then you answer yes for one question and it's like all the hope comes back to him

I can't believe he got Coraline, he was only asking the vaguest of questions

He isn't all that good with characters from the Doom Patrol, for Elasti Girl he guessed Liz Sherman, The Rumor from Umbrella Academy, and even Helen Parr.

I think it says quite a lot about the person who must have programmed it. Perhaps we could make our own game of "guess who the programmer is" from what he/she knows about and where he/she must be from (seems like it's pretty much certain to be the USA somewhere).

you learn something about people in general by looking at how many times someone has been guessed, I suppose

also it got Turin Turambar on the first try.  cool.  or, at least, geeky.

and Cimorene from some kids books I used to read.  fuck this thing is addictive.

eventually it got Daniel Waterhouse (Neal Stephenson character)

But the sequence of questions and how the answers modify it come from the programmer; and that's where the weaknesses show.

There's versions for other countries, hence the "us" at the start of the URL. A lot of people seem to be tripping it up with very UK-centric celebrity types so maybe try the uk.akinator.com website and see if there's a noticeable difference.

Took 30 questions to get Hutch Harris.  Guessed Jamie Stewart at 20.
Got Shadow from American God's on the first try.

Also, some of the oddly specific questions that make it clear it is already thinking of your character are hilarious.  For example question 15 when I used Glenn Beck is does my character often cry.

It got Grumpy from Snow White within 20, but wasn't as good with the other dwarfs. I stumped it with Judy the gorilla. When I went to check if he got the Good Samaritan, his ninth question was "Is your character a figure from the Bible?" That's pretty freaky, until then I only told him male, good, dead. Ultimately he didn't get it.

It got the Terminator within 20 as well, that's pretty impressive considering the questions asked.

Also I stumped it again with Paul Blackthorn and it answered the creator of the site, which supposedly is a luchador. Ok then.

Akinator is pretty good. He guessed:

Gong Li (First guess)
Zheng He (First guess, despite apparently expecting the wrong answer on his religion).
Zhou Enlai (Second guess after Mao Zedong).
Song Meiling (Third guess after Empress Dowager Cixi and Song Qingling).

Aaron and I have been taking turns with this for about the last hour.  We have stumped him like 3 times.  Well I have.  With Zero GIrl (Sam Kieth comic character - not even in his database), Smashlee Simpson (Drew Barrymore in Whip It) and Marius (Anne Rice vampire).

Aaron;s spirits were broken when it guessed Randall from ugly Americans in 20 and he seemed so far off base.  We couldn't believe it.

After playing around with some authors I know (adding a couple to the database), I did some local musicians, and one was already in there. Finally, I did my own main character from my novel and the answer after 20 questions was: "Your own character (Your Original Character)". I laughed.

Akinator's definitely in the database at last, I've seen it come up a few times in the recent games that shows up on the home page.

E: 12 questions for me

E2: Same amount of questions for the Genie from Aladdin (Despite expecting a "no" for "was he in a TV series" (He was))

Managed to stump him for the first time with Sgt. Major Basil Plumley - featured in We Were Soldiers. His first guess was Hal Moore, Mel Gibson's character in the film and Plumley's CO.

Trying to get him with footballers now, managed to get him to his 3rd guess with Hugo Rodallega. Getting serious!

I did the Genie and he seemed to be doing fine - was he in a cartoon, was he in a Disney movie, is he a genie, is he bald - and then started asking stuff like, does he live with you. It asked about 10 random questions AFTER establishing that it was a genie from a Disney movie. Weird.
