Eat Bulaga's Pinoy Henyo
Pinoy Henyo has been a craze here in the Philippines. The game is as popular as Eat Bulaga itself. I am not sure when did the game exactly began although its been a long time now since it was started, this is one of the most awaited portion in Eat Bulaga.
In fact, Filipinos appreciate it so much, they use it as ice breaker or as games for any social gatherigs like christmas parties and more. Its seems rather simple to do and anyone can do it anytime of the day and anywhere they are.
It is a great way to exercise the brains or if you just want to kill time while having fun.It has even become a past time for some students when they have no classes.It also has already been named as pambansang laro ng pilipinas or a national or official game of the Philippines
I am not sure if this is 100% original Eat Bulaga concept or this is just an adaptation or another version patterned from another game.
Pinoy Henyo: Battle of the Brains
It was called Pinoy Henyo with the word henyo or genius. Its really a mind game. The mechanics of the game is actually very simple. You will just need to guess a word which is on your forehead.
It is played by pair. The one will ask the question and the one will give answer but the answer is limited to 3 short answers like YES -oo, NO-Hindi or CAN BE-Puede.
The guesser has no idea what is written on his or her forehead. It depends on how well you ask questions and how well the answer of your partner that you both can arrive at the exact answer.
Ofcourse you can start with the Broader ideas. Most of the time, easy words are used because its really time consuming to guess a word or a term or anything under the sun in just a limited time which is around 2 minutes.
For example if the word is Cat. its fairly easy to guess, unless the guesser ask if that is an animal. The categories are broad and if dont get it quickly your time will just run out. so if you say its an animal, there are many kinds of animals and you need to think how you can limit your choices so you would ask if it lives in water, land or air. You just ask and ask anything and the your partner will answer it. However, if your partner said other words than the 3 words one can receive deductions in time.
How to win the game
As I watched it almost everyday, every lunch time, I have observed that there is really a big chance to win easily in the game if you know the techniques.
First one, the words are really easy and sometimes they use words that are part of the latest news. they would be difficult if you get the henyo word or words that are not very common, easy but not common or something that will pop easily to your mind.
Actually, I see its really about strategy, practice, review and at the same time you also need to be mentally alert and relax. As I observed players only got mental block because of time pressure and nervousness.
Enjoy the game
I enjoy watching it and always looking for good contestants because you will really admire how they are able to guess the word and how it pops on their head. Its really a game of chance at the same time because some really wins out of pure luck and not really because they are brainy.
Its quite annoying if the word is very easy but the players just waited their time to run out. At this time, I get a little bored with it because its played almost everyday. I know someday this game will take a break if people are bored already.

Sometimes celebrities guest to play the game. Sometimes this game can really make or break you. If you are able to answer easily people who watch the show will surely be proud of you however if you did not make it, that is a big shame, the whole Philippines will know how low IQ you are. But audience do understand that its not as easy as many think it is.
