Akinator has been around since 2007. Created by a French IT company, this addicting game is a great way to pass time in a long security or immigration line, or to play with friends on a plane (though it does require Wi-Fi). The game is so popular that users can now play it in a dozen languages. Here’s how it works: You think of a real or fictional character and answer the genie Akinator’s questions to see if he can guess it. I’ve played twice (I picked Chewbacca and Fozzie Bear) and he’s one for two, but my wife Natalie says she’s played about a dozen times and he’s only guessed wrong once.
How about you? Have you played? Did Akinator guess right?
