What am I is a common question in the game of Hedbanz. Your job is to learn whether the card attached to your hedbanz is an animal, a food, or a man-made object. The faster you find out what you are, the faster you'll move around the board.

Each player puts on a headband and a card with a word or phrase is placed on their forehead, visible to all players except the player wearing it. On a turn, a player can ask up to 20 yes or no questions to other players to try to guess what is on their headband. When a player correctly guesses the word or phrase on their headband, they score one point.

The game ends when all players have guessed the word or phrase on their headband. The player with the most points wins. A timer can be used to limit the time for each player’s turn.
