Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Primary sources, of course, wouldn't be the secondary sources that I referred to: Did he die of natural causes? Yes, although secondary sources often disagree You guys should be careful on how you interpret my answer to the 'natural causes' question. It's not a matter of sources being unclear about ...

Re: Ghost Ratings query

It's not just sore losers, though. My GR rating was never great in part because I used to like joining games in progress (back when you had to pay :points: to take over positions). Maybe this was fixed at some point, but I don't know about it if so.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Closest fit I can find is Admiral Blas de Lezo, although I didn't see any reference to a debatable cause of death so probably not right. Is that an official guess? The cause of death isn't debatable or controversial, mind you. There is just confusion about it. like there's a debunked idea about how...

Kakarroto! Poor guy! Sorry that you did all that research. I was referring to damo666 and his love affair with real dead males, not battles in 1666.

Think major victories (or catastrophic defeats depending on your perspective).
@JECE - I think this is simply far too obscure. We don't know it.
You should have listened to the number of the beast. :evil: Then you would had even more questions to waste! :wink:

I think we need a clue.

I can't even think of a decent 20th question. Possibilities might be:

French?
Iberian?
Keep in mind who I represented in the webDiplomacy World Cup.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

The guy may not be a household name, but he did something really, really big. This is what got me thinking. If it's really, really big, someone must have made a film, right? I can't answer with certainty whether he was ever portrayed in a film, so I'll give you a hint. A far right party is pissed (...
