maybe start out with some yes/no questions and get into more specific questions once you narrow it down. want to do a test run with me?

Is the sum of all numbers, added together, greater or less than 20 (or any x)?

Do any numbers repeat?

Questions about evens/odds in each position, asking if each position is greater or less than 5 (or 5.5, to not exclude 5), etc... should help narrow it down without going number by number.

You could also ask about prime numbers (2357) or numbers divisible by 3 (369) to help narrow the search.

The repeating numbers is a good ?.

I don't think asking questions about 'all' the numbers is the way to go...not at first anyway...better off asking about individual numbers :

is the first number higher than 4
is the 2nd number higher/lower than first number etc
then you can ask about the total of all numbers / or prime numbers

It might be a good idea to pick a couple strategies and test run them, to see which takes the fewest questions and you can figure out what works. Mets offered. I can help with a run through tomorrow starting a couple hours before the challenge, too.

Dana, if you sign on and want to try a quick run-through before the match starts, I have the page open. Otherwise, goodluck!

I made a new thread in this room since this one was getting long. Easier for those who sign on later to follow.
