There are a few thing about this, I don't like:

-- It is the only real scrying spell in TFT. A few more would be welcome.

-- It is unlike scrying spells in fantasy fiction. I've never seen a fantasy novel where a wizard casts a spell repeatedly in order to play a game of 20 questions. It does not feel magical.
Yeah, in my game, I'd make it use the rules in my Research and Knowledge post where a research attempt represents your inquiry into a subject. Further attempts wouldn't yield any more useful information.
