This is by far one of the happiest days of my life. Not only was it exhilarating to see the warm support of your colleagues...I was also able to add up a large number of Fast Food toys from my winnings. Thank you, God, for this happy memory.
Pinoy Henyo, the "Pambansang Laro ng Bayan," is one of the most popular game segments of Eat Bulaga!. The game has a similar concept as Twenty Questions, but instead of limiting the number of questions, the game is limited to two minutes.
There are three pairs each day that play in the qualifying round. A word is placed on top of the guesser's head. The goal of the game is to guess the word in under two minutes. The guesser must ask questions that becomes more specific over time, while the other player must only reply with Oo (yes), Hindi (no), or Pwede (maybe/possibly). Other replies will incur a three-second penalty. The pair with the fastest time heads to the jackpot round. In the jackpot round, the winning pair will play again following the same concepts. Except this time, the pair is only given one category and must take turns to correctly guess any three of the ten provided words in under three minutes. If the pair is having difficulty guessing a particular word, they can opt to pass. If they correctly guess the words, they win the maximum cash prize.
Throughout its run, Pinoy Henyo has evolved into many different themes and editions to cater to particular groups of people, frequently modifying the segment's title to indicate the contestants of the edition. Its gameplay has also experienced some slight changes over time, depending on the capability and intellect of the contestants.
