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...

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

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...

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

So we can eliminate swaths of Belgium and Switzerland too, and the only country on the list that was sovereign, united and independent between 1500 and 1800 (Denmark). So we're left with guys from: Bosnia and Herzegovina Brazil China Croatia Czechia Flanders Greece India Italy Japan Montenegro Nethe...

Mongrovia?
Mongrovia is a made up country from a wrestling meme, sorry.
So you included it on purpose as a joke?

I’ll take “country” liberally and say yes.
Quite unfortunate, since this answer remains unclear.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

I’ve already guessed but it could be Nicki Minaj. Go for it! We're out of free guesses anyway, so it doesn't matter if you guess again. I couldn't find any information on the TV series Hollymation to check where it debuted, but she seems to fit everything else. Well, the blonde thing is interesting...

There was a 'reason' that we ruled out Scotland. I do not recall what it was.
No reason. A user just checked and couldn't find anybody who fit the bill.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Are we even on the right track? I think this is the point where the gamemaster typically starts dropping clues to help kick the ball across the finish line. I just hate to deny someone that hero moment when they put it all together without a big clue. Okay, hint #3: You have yet to guess a person i...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Looks to me like she fits, FYI. Admittedly it's not as clear-cut as the other six blatantly criterion-slamming guesses (though we're up to seven again with Avril Lavigne redux), but I laid out my concerns here to crickets: https://webdiplomacy.net/contrib/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=325731&sid=63b37f29a...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Guys, seven of the last eight guesses, (Katie McGrath, Kerry Condon, Salóme Gunnarsdóttir, Adele, Avril Lavigne, Joss Stone and Charlotte Church) were wasted on people that don't fit the criteria. I get that we're just playing a game, but come on now . . . Which criterion does Charlotte Church not ...

17. Not on these lists: Wikipedia Actresses from the United Kingdom born in the 1980s; Wikipedia Actresses from Canada born in the 1980s

Re: Tyr sea and Gol

Keep in mind that these variants were not invented for webDiplomacy. The original variant author intended those adjacencies, as archived here: https://diplomacyzines.co.uk/?page_id=6115 https://diplomacyzines.co.uk/?page_id=5573 So webDiplomacy just respects the original game design.
