Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

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. Was this man an entertainer (including actor, music man, poet, comedian, painter, sculptor, magician, circus performe...

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...

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

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...
