Looking at results of finished games I see a fair number of those, and I don't get it. Why not just keep playing? Or if someone CDed, why not cancel instead? With that many players, I just can't imagine a situation where no one has the chance to expand further.
Ask "yes or no" questions until the identity is guessed, and then the person who guesses correctly takles on an identity and the guessing game begins again (if you're still unclear, look to the title for guidance on how to play this.)
Now, are you ready? (If I said "You Bet Your Life I am!" that'd be too easy to start, huh? OK, I'm thinking of a person...OK, I'm from a play...) ;)
If you have an hour or so, take it an play this game. It is a marvel of storytelling and conception, and quite thought provoking, the beginning is quite frustrating, but check the walk through to help you, the story is worth the time and effort, I promise.
I am putting together a video project, but am having a hard time finding source material. I am looking for revolutionary speeches of the 1960's and 1970's. If anyone can help me out with this I would be grateful.
Lately, I have come across several Western Triple games. In many of these, Turkey is aiding the R/I/T Counter-alliance that try to oppose the Western Triple. I always thought that Turkey should take advantage on a Triple, and gobble his eastern neighbours for all he is worth.... What do you think?

Can anyone explain to me in practical terms why anything raised to the power of zero is equal to one? I understand that it's very convenient for algebraic reasons, and I kind of understand the logic and reasoning behind it, but I still can't get rid of the idea that, since 2^5 is defined as 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2, that 2^0 should have no definition because there are no numbers actually involved in it. I would have thought that it would fall into the category of zero denominators as non-real...
Can a Mod please check into the game? Austria's internet went down and he NMR'd, throwing the game to France. Any way we can have some sort of rewind or do-over? If this was an ordinary game, then oh well, shit happens. But this is supposed to be the Championship Tournament. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
