(I tried Debussy, and he guessed him in less than 20 questions!)

I totally fooled it with Sergei Bortkiewicz. The Genius guessed Furtwängler. laugh

For me, that was awesome.

I was thinking of Gustav Mahler. He was slow going at first, and seemed to ask redundant questions. ("Did he have European origins?" then, "Was he European?" "Was he partly a singer/musician?" then, "Was he a singer?")

But all of a sudden, he started zooming in on it: "Did he wear glasses?" "Did he have Jewish origins?" And then he guessed correctly.

Cool.

That was fun! It guessed Elton John and "Weird Al" Yankovic with no problem,but guessed Brian Wilson for Billy Joel.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.
