Re: 20 Questions - Game #6 - RULE CHANGE

Let me rephrase the politician answer: Yes, this person was/is a politician, sort of, but there's more to it than that. Politician probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind in how you would describe him. So ... 1. Not female 2. A real person 3. Not mainly known for their work in entertainmen...

20 Questions - Game #6 - RULE CHANGE

Re: 20 Questions - Game #5

Wow, OK. I'll start #6. I like the idea of limiting the guesses ... let's try it with 1 guess per person, then 3 guesses at the end.

Re: More American children murdered by gun-toting lunatic

The source is local news reports of the shootings, which are collated on Wikipedia ...
It looks like Wikipedia is getting its information from the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit organization:

The show discusses Alex Jones, a charlatan who has made millions of dollars propagating the fiction that ...

You guys are on the wrong track, focusing too much on the person being real, if that makes sense.
Could you explain that comment a bit more, in light of Q&A #3? (Is a person that is living/has lived)

Re: Question regarding a standoff situation

OP you have it right. In your second example, the Russian A Pru fails to dislodge the German A Sil. Therefore, the Russian A Pru cannot cut support coming from Sil for an attack on itself, and the German F Ber will dislodge the Russian A Pru.
