Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

So, profession is significant but we've ruled out:

X Major movie star
X Politician
X Sportsman
X Scientist
X Criminal
X Entertainer
X Financier or Economist

With only 6 questions left, shall we brainstorm other likely occupations before we formally ask the next question?

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

He is famous in his own right, mind you. Not many 18th Century military commanders regularly get articles written about them today in the popular press. The main issue was that you all focused on the 17th Century. Which articles? In which publications? BTW which far right group did you mean to refe...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blas_de_Lezo Absolute fucking bollocks. JECE needs to explain how this person is famous. I already did: Blas de Lezo died not long after the Battle of Cartagena de Indias, in which he repelled one of the largest amphibious invasions in history with a small force. But I...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

No offence JECE but this game collapses into shit, if you just name random very minor figures that nobody has ever heard of. That's not fair.

Who the FUCK is Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta?? He does not even have a Wikipedia page in English. HOW did you expect us to guess this random, obscure, person? This fails the dart test by about 1,000 miles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blas_de_Lezo Absolute fucking bollocks. JECE needs to explain how...

Re: M1023 - Mafarmia [SIGNUPS]
