French Toast (con)

The moderator thinks of an object. A player makes a guess at the object. If the guess is wrong then the guessed object becomes a standard. Another player guesses, and if the guess is wrong, the moderator reveals if the correct answer is more like the standard or more like the newly guessed object (in the latter case, the newly guessed object becomes the new standard). Guessing continues until the moderator’s object is discovered.

A game might go as follows:

Is it a house?
No.

Is it a table?

No, but it’s more like a table than a house.

Is it a car?

No, it’s more like a table.

Is it a human being?

No, but it’s more like a human being than a table.

Is it a cat?

No but it’s more like a cat than a human being

Is it a dog?

Yes.

In the variation Spanish Omelet, the moderator describes what each wrong guess has in common with the right answer rather than comparing it to the standard. A game might go as follows:

Is it a house?
No, but like a house it is something a person might buy.

Is it a table?

No, but like a table it has legs.

Is it a cat?

No, but like a cat it is a popular household pet.

Is it a dog?

Yes.

In Breakfast Combo, the moderator gives a Spanish Omelet response when a guess is less like the answer than the standard and the French Toast response when the guess is more like the answer than the standard.

French Toast was introduced by Rastelli. The Spanish Omelet variation was proposed by Murdoch.
