Initgame




<games> /in-it'gaym/ [IRC] An IRC version of the venerable trivia game "20 questions", in which one user changes his nick to the initials of a famous person or other named entity, and the others on the channel ask yes or no questions, with the one to guess the person getting to be "it" next.

As a courtesy, the one picking the initials starts by providing a 4-letter hint of the form sex, nationality, life-status, reality-status.

For example, MAAR means "Male, American, Alive, Real" (as opposed to "fictional").

Initgame can be surprisingly addictive.

See also hing.
