Forum Game Guess the number!

Roles:

Master:
-Thinks of a number
, it may be no lower than 0 and no higher than 100 (and no more than 2 decimals, please).

Guesser:
-Tries to guess the number
, if the guess is correct the guesser who posted the guess (The guess that was the correct guess, ofcourse) first becomes the new master.

The master can do anything he wants to make it harder (giving false hints, stuff like that) or easier for the guessers to guess the number that they have to guess.. I guess.

Whoever posts first will be the first master.

Is it 2, the only odd/even (whichever it is) prime number?

None of those, sorry.

Current clues:
- it's a prime number.
- it's a special kind of prime number.
- the above clues are real.

It cannot be: 97, 2, 56, 50.

5, one of the two primes you can divide any number in base 10 with and never get an irrational number?

Nope, but someone got a number that is related in some way to mine.

Current clues:
- it's a prime number.
- it's a special kind of prime number.
- the above clues are real.
- one of the previous guesses is related to my number in the way that makes it special.
- it's an integer.

Wrong guesses: 97, 2, 56, 50, 25, 5, 2, 43, 99.99.

(I will probably explain each and every single clue when someone guesses it.)

7, the last of the only chain of three primes each being the previous one + 2?

Also, 57. For no good reason

No. Also 137 is over the limit of 0-100.

Alright you're getting another clue (in italic), and this might really give away the number.

Current clues:
- it's a prime number.
- it's a special kind of prime number.
- one of the previous guesses is related to my number in the way that makes it special.
- it's an integer.
- these kind of prime numbers have a lot to do with random number generation.
- all of the current clues are real (no red herrings).

Wrong guesses: 97, 2, 56, 50, 25, 5, 2, 43, 99.99, 75, 11, 41, 66, 12, 7, 1, 57, 27, 89, 137.

Nope.

I'm going to sleep and I'll probably be able to check again the forums in around 14 to 20 hours.

So you get yet another extra clue.

Current clues:
- it's a prime number.
- it's a special kind of prime number.
- one of the previous guesses is related to my number in the way that makes it special.
- it's an integer.
- these kind of prime numbers have a lot to do with random number generation.
- there are only three prime numbers of this "special kind" between 1 and 100.
- all of the current clues are real (no red herrings).

Wrong guesses: 97, 2, 56, 50, 25, 5, 2, 43, 99.99, 75, 11, 41, 66, 12, 7, 1, 57, 27, 89, 137, 29.

There are 25 prime numbers from 1 to 100: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97. (bold is already guessed)

Imma guess 13 and go to sleep, too.

@JimmyBG Got it, it's 31, the LAST Mersenne prime between 1 and 100!

Special mention to @johnwo who guessed the *first* mersenne prime.

Clues and explanation:
- it's a prime number. 31 is indeed a prime number.
- it's a special kind of prime number. It's a Mersenne prime, aka a prime number obtained by subtracting 1 to a power of 2, so x=(2^n)-1.
- one of the previous guesses is related to my number in the way that makes it special. Someone guessed the number 2, and Mersenne primes are obtained by subrtacting 1 to a power of 2.
- it's an integer. 31 is indeed an integer number.
- these kind of prime numbers have a lot to do with random number generation. Mersenne twisters are random number generators that use Mersenne primes in their calculations.
- there are only three prime numbers of this "special kind" between 1 and 100. 3, 7 and 31, respectively (2^1)-1, (2^3)-1 and (2^5)-1.
- all of the current clues are real (no red herrings). All of the above clues are real as explained by the bold-italic text.
