Contest: Take 20Q Star Trek to Warp Speed and Win Big!

Take 20Q Star Trek to Warp Speed and Win Big! is putting its artificial intelligence (A.I.) into warp speed to bring players 20Q STAR TREK, the latest version of the hugely popular game that can “read your mind.” By choosing a person, place or thing from the Star Trek Universe, you use your wits to keep the system from figuring out your answer in twenty questions or less. If the system can’t figure it out, you win! But first, the game needs to bone up on Star Trek trivia to be a worthy opponent.

20Q needs your help to assist the game in “learning” the world of STAR TREK, and all you have to do to contribute is play! With each play of the game, the system gets “smarter” and more challenging. By simply testing your STAR TREK knowledge, you can help bring the game to life as a real 20Qhome game!

Think you can stump the system and win big? Play 20Q™ STAR TREK now!

To be officially entered, let us know whether you stumped the game or not, and which Star Trek term you chose while playing. Remember, try your best to be creative with your choices!

Send your name, address, whether or not you stumped the game and the person, place or thing you tried to stump 20Q with to contest at backseatproducers dot com.

The winner will receive a prize pack that contains:

  • 20Q T-shirt
  • Harry Potter handheld game
  • Simpsons handheld game
  • 20Q Version 2.0 game

Contest Ends: October 28, 2008
