Guess Who is a classic tabletop game that relies on players to ask questions with yes-no answers to figure out what character someone has on their mind.
The goal is to figure out the other person’s character before they figure out yours, so asking big sweeping questions to whittle down the field before getting into the nitty gritty is a good strategy.
However, Pokelawls gamed the system a little bit by expanding on an answer a bit further than what the game’s rules state, and xQc was having none of it.
xQc had drawn former Team SoloMid star Dyrus as his character, while Pokelawls was trying his best to lead his opponent off the scent of Sodapoppin. Pokelawls did a pretty good job of it, although he did bend the rules a little.
Instead of sticking to questions with strict yes-no answers, he asked some questions that were vague, and gave answers with no real indication of swinging any way — at least in xQc’s opinion.
At the end of the game, with Pokelawls being the first to guess, xQc was nowhere near Sodapoppin, having flipped the streamer over half-way through the game, and he was less than impressed.
“Did you fall on your f**king head,” he asked Pokelawls, leaving his opponent semi-confused. xQc reiterated his point, expanding on one particular question. “I said, ‘does your character sometimes wear cleavage, and you said yes.”
Pokelawls retorted by saying “I said ‘one time he did—’,” but xQc cut in again to lay down the letter of the law. “It’s a yes-no game,” he screamed. “It’s a yes-no game! F**k, that’s the whole point of the game.”
The winner did point out a flaw in xQc’s logic though — when Pokelawls answered the question, he did say “he did,” which should have been a clear indicator for the former Overwatch pro.
“How would a man wear cleavage? It would be a one-time thing, and I said ‘one time he did,’” he said.
xQc was less-than-impressed with Pokelawls’ answer, jumping about in his chair in shock. His anger was too monstrous to put into words, so he did it in the only way possible — by flipping the virtual table, spilling the game everywhere.
“I’ve been playing by deduction, I didn’t play ‘smart,’ I played with the rules. It’s a f**king yes-no game,” he yelled. “‘Does your character sometimes wear cleavage?’ Sometimes? You said yes. One-time out of five years is not yes.”
While Pokelawls answers could be considered by some to not be within the spirit of the game, xQc did miss a key detail that allowed his opponent to snatch victory with ease, and he’s only got himself to blame for that.
