Cool game, But at first i thought of Tamannah and it came up with a hindi porn actress!!!
But the second time it was spot on. Michael Schumacher it was.
And the third one, it guessed at the fourth question itself.Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Fourth one-Mohanlal and fifth Surya. All spot on answers. Except the first one all the rest were spot on.
Loved playing it.

Bowled over!
1st one I went for Steve Jobs and it was a piece of cake for that Genie.
2nd I played on Dan Brown and till 20th question it wasn't very sure and I was like (I'm going to win) and then came the answer and I was like

EDIT: Tried with Ratan Tata and the Genie won again!

He couldn't guess Anil Kumble. But came up with stupid answers like Sourav Ganguly inspite of asking whether the cricketer was left handed and me saying no.

I started off with the Joker (The Dark Knight). The Genie got it on the 24th question. Nice!

The Genie correctly guessed Mother Teresa & Scout Finch [took 20 questions for both], and lost out on Virender Sehwag [Genie guessed Rahul Dravid] and Stefan Edberg [Genie first guessed Ivan Lendl, then Mats Wilander]

Cheers,
Vikram

Got me about 3 times initially with Vijay Mallya, Che and Jayalalitha. But then it got royally stumped with Atul Kasbekar. (Gave me Prabhu Deva first and then Golimar and so on.)
