Let's Play a game.

I'm giving you the following list of names (All female):

Miki Howard, Cathy Podewell,Cynthis Szigeti,Uma Thurman, Billie Holliday, Lisa Bentwright, Pamela Peadon, June Haver, Jan Nagyova, Paula Jai Parker, Dorothy Dwan, Marilyn Miller, Leelee Sobieski, Diana Ross, Judy Garland, Cecile de Volanges, Ginger O'Hara, xxxxxxx, yyyyyyy, zzzzzzzz

You need to fill the names into the following chart:


A:_____________ F:_____________
A1:__________
A2:__________
A3:__________
A4:__________ FA:__________
B:_____________
B1:__________
B2:__________
B3:__________ FB:__________
C:_____________
C1:__________ FC:__________
D:_____________
D1:__________
D2:__________
D3:__________
D4:__________ FD:__________
E:_____________
E1:__________
E2:__________
E3:__________
E4:__________ FE:__________



Each turn you can make four guesses, and ask one yes/no question about how the chart and list works.

One turn would be:

Is Miki Howard A?
Is Cathy Podewell B3?
Is Cynthia Szigeti C1?
Is Uma Thurman D2?
Is the chart in alphabetical order?

And I'll give the answers. (In this case all "no").

No. You were allowed to ask three more (it'll take forever if you just ask one at a time. And you are allowed to ask about how they are to be entered. (There's a very straightforward logic to this and the list of names.)

Okay, to shamelessly bump up interest in my own thread I'm adding a feature to my game:

You also have a list of years: 1925, 1927, 1939, 1946, 1949, 1972, 1978, 1978, 1980, 1980, 1984, 1985, 1988, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1999, 2003

And I'm adding Pascale Bardet to my list of names.

Each turn you can ask:

four name questions ("Is so-and-so in such and such a spot") which I'll answer yes/no
One year question in which you pick a year and I'll tell you where it goes. (no yes/no; I'll tell you exactly where the year goes!)
One general yes/no question about how the chart works.

Your thinking might be right but unfortunately there's a slight curve and your guesses are all wrong.

FD

Yes, it has quite a bit to do with movies.

Geographical? Now how in the hell would I do that? (to paraphrase Buck McCoy)
