Advice on 20 questions game

I am a bridesmaid in my friends upcoming wedding and I have been put in charge of organizing the 20 questions-type game for her upcoming shower. There are going to be about thirty people at the co-ed shower and I am wondering if handing out sheets of paper and then collecting them all to sit down and "grade" takes some of the fun out of it. I suppose I am wondering if anyone has any ideas that will make this question/answer game more competitive and involved. I feel like with so many people in attendance people will fill out their sheet and then by the time the answers are finally tallied the results won't be exciting because people will have moved on.

I was thinking I could do something like the games on Big Brother where everyone holds up their answers and then if they are wrong they sit down and we keep asking until there is one person left? Thoughts, ideas?

    I find games to be excruciating.  Personally, this would annoy me, because it would take away my chance to visit and chat.

    If you must play games, ones like Bridal bingo that happen during the gift opeining, but people don't have to play are better.

    I think 20 questions is too much. At my shower, the MOH asked 8 questions about me/fiance like what month did we get engaged at, etc...everyone wrote their answers/guesses on a piece of paper and then MOH collected them, whoever got the most right won the game/prize.

    Also had game where everyone stands up and passes mini bouquet in circle with music playing, music stops, whoever is holding bouquet has 5 seconds to sing a song with the word 'love' in it, if they can't, they're out the game, if they do, they're still in the game, music starts again, game continues until there is 1 person left with bouquet, who is the winner. It becomes really fun to play

    Instead of collecting and grading them yourself, have the bride answer the questions and let people score their own.
