This is one of the classic word games which has been popular for many years. Although the rules are fairly simple, it still requires a lot of thinking to work out the correct answer.

1. One player thinks of an object. The other players take turns trying to guess the word by asking a series of questions starting, "Is it animal, vegetable or mineral?" All other question can only be answered either "Yes" or "No".

2. For example, the object could be a TREE. The first question would be answered, "It is vegetable". The next question could be "Can you eat it?" (No), followed by "Do farmers grow them?" (Yes) and so on.

3. A player can guess the answer at any time during their turn. If they guess the answer correctly they win that round and can choose the object for the next round. If they are incorrect, they drop out for the rest of the round and cannot ask any more questions.
