Re: Bots are broken tonight

One difference I've noticed already, it seems to want to play a strange opening as Austria, to ALB, RUM, and GAL. Not just in my game. I've seen MerryBBuck use this opening with some success against the old FB, but it only works if you catch your opponent off guard. At least that opening has a name...

Did he die in the Eastern Hemisphere and/or South of the 40th parallel north?
Is this satire?
Nope. Looks like just under half of everyone I'm considering died in California, which is South of the 40th parallel.

5 questions remain and no hints have yet been given
Is that a hint? :lol:
Yeah. It's a hint to get on with it.
Feel free! I heard some grumblings about a meridian.

The Prime Meridian is the dividing line.
And a damn fine one too.
One of the best I've ever seen
I disagree. So many better ones!

Re: Has Diplomacy activity come down in last 5 years ?

Hmm, so the silence on the Forum of the last few years is because discussions have moved behind the shroud of Discord?

There are so many and we only have one question left: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_daimy%C5%8Ds_from_the_Sengoku_period The entertainer question and response is interesting.

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

As I said, it is someone from Japan and not China. Anyone who guessed someone from China has their free guess refunded. It is not Koxinga (I wasn’t aware he was born in Japan— good to know!) Well, the beans were already spilled since he didn't die until after 1650. But I get another free guess, the...

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

I ... kinda disagree on this point, Japan at the time was more like the HRE in that regard. There were regions who were practically independent. Sure, there was a connection to the emperor/tenno, but it isn't as cut and dry as mentioned above. The phrasing was: "I’ll take “country” liberally and sa...

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

I mean, we can't rule Japan out completely, but Japan at the time would count as a country by any of the three relevant definitions on Merriam-Webster: 1 : an indefinite usually extended expanse of land : REGION 2 a : the land of a person's birth, residence, or citizenship 2 b : a political state or...

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

Ok we have spent FAR too much time on nationality. At least now we know it's a famous person from China or Japan . Oops, misread the answer. I think that he is unlikely to be Japanese. None of the daimyos claimed to be independent of Japan or the emperor as far as I understand. It would be odd to d...

No. It’s a shame, these countries are woefully underrepresented in the past ninety selections (no one’s chosen a Greek yet??). Still they were also some of the least likely to be correct, with the exception of certain Romanian voivodes and the PLC. You have China, Flanders, Italy, Japan, the Nether...
