So I've been planning on making this thread for quite awhile now, since 2012 as I recall, but as always, I procrastinated. Anywho, no, this is not a copy of Name That Song, I was taught this game in "The Real World" and played it there.

So here's how it works, someone, me to start, thinks of a dead person who must be famous. To avoid as much spam as possible, gives off certain details about him/her from the start. After that, everyone will try to guess who said dead guy is whilst asking 'yes' or 'no' questions about him. It would be preffered, so as to avoid spam, that unless you have a rather unique question, or are guessing the identity of the dead guy, that you ask more than one question per post.

E.G.
Person 1: I'm thinking of a dead male, caucasion with black hair
Person 2: did he did within the last 5 years and was a singer?
Person 1: Yes to both.
Person 2: Micheal Jackson.
Person 1: Yes. Chose your dead guy.

I'm going to start off with a dead caucasion male, black hair, was known for being on television and without further questioning I will go into no more details on what area of television.

Ask and guess away.

was he european?

Yes. I'll be more specific: born in a Greek city that's now in Turkey, died in Macedonia around age 60.

He was a famous writer, but they keep picking poets and philosophers.

My guess is that you are speaking of Heraclitus?

My guy was born about a decade before that guy died. And my guy wasn't known for philosophy.

I'm going to take a wild guess here, but is it Euripides?

Born about 40 years after Pindar.
Not one of the 9 lyric poets.

is it Heraclitus?
it's apparently Euripides.

Neither.
He even died in Macadonia.

Didn't die age ~60, wasn't a playright (at least not on Wiki's list).

Probably final hint:
He's on this page.

Euripides didn't die age ~60, my guy wasn't a playwright.

Spirit..please read through the thread. The last two guesses of yours were already declared not to be the guy

From reading his page..Dionysius seems a good choice..although he died (and was born) much after Plato's time

Herodotus?
