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.

Well, I proved it better than that guy. He just said Heraclitus, while I gave detailed information about him. So there. Didn't even see his post before now.

I'll be honest, no one really gives a sh_t.

A Great King who made an excellent innovation.

[quote]Michael Jackson?

Yeah, Michael Jackson was a King who made an excellent innovation that wore a slanted crown lmao :P

[quote]I'm going to say Louis XIII of France

P.S. Your hint of a King who made an excellent innovation that wore a slanted crown is awful Spirit.

Which is a problem to the clue, because if it was a celebrity's nickname, it's not a title, but a nickname. Furthermore, if the King in question was not European, then that further throws the clue into question, since I'm pretty certain that America had no native Kings so to speak, both in the South and North. Monarchs yes, but kings? Proper kings with dynasties and exercised actual control.

Fair enough my friend, I had taken him to be more literal than figurative though. Ie, I would've thought he meant a real crown, not a hat, and I didn't really consider a new dance an "excellent innovation."

Rereading that I see that what I said could've have been taken as condescending/rude, sorry about that. It was not at all intended.

the moonwalk isn't a michael jackson innovation... he only made it popular.
the move itself comes from the 1920's charleston.

it's like saying that coca-cola invented christmas xD

So, he is not a monarch who ruled a country, even with limited powers?

Just going to shoot a random guess, based on the assumption of royalty.

Is it Prince?

sorry for dp.

Yeah, forget that, he is still alive but the only musician known as King is King ov hell (according to wikipedia).

So, just to organize thoughts

He is dead
known as the king
has a slanted headpiece
was famous
I don't know his name
probably never heard of him
probably some person no one has ever heard of
will end up being some rediculously obvious answer.

Is it the doctor?
