It is the Dragon of Echigo, congratulations damo!

Sorry for all the confusion around geography, good game everyone.
Just curious, any particular reason you thought of him?

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

Free guess: since the other two "great unifiers" have been guessed, I'll try the third, Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

Yes if you count daimyos as samurais.. this has essentially been answered by question twelve though. Q 12 seemed to leave a lot of military options open (lots of and/ors)... and samurai worked for daimyos, right? So personally I wouldn't consider them the same. ...although Wikipedia says that some ...

Re: Twenty Questions, Game 90

Well, if he died before 1650 (or our GM explicitly retracts Japan, I think I'll use my free guess on one of the three following persons: Oda Nobunaga Toyotomi Hideyoshi Tokugawa Ieyasu Don't forget about Shingen Takeda, the Tiger of Kai, and Kenshin Uesugi, the Dragon of Echigo! Yeah, there were ma...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

I’ve already guessed but it could be Nicki Minaj. An interesting guess. Seems to tick all the boxes. Wikipedia describes her as a rapper at the top of her page, but says she's sort of a hybrid singer/rapper farther down, so I don't know about Q20 here. No one seems to be coming up with anything bet...

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 89

Someone with a free guess is welcome to go for Charlotte Church...? Not related to the game, but just because I'm curious, are either Aimee Duffy or Charlotte Church well known over there across the big pond? I mean are those people that you guys have heard of? Based on Balki's response, I think I ...

I should probably go back and check all those IMDB lists but I don't have time right now, so here's a wild, crazy, shot-in-the-dark, free guess:

Adele.

She was born in 88, has a few acting credits on IMDB (but not too many).
Not Adele
Yeah, forgot about the "in a movie" clue. Dammit.

If not a title character, my guess is Falkor.
It IS Falkor! Well done!
Nice job, Balki. Now you can do the Dance of Joy!

A highly recommended read, by the way, if anyone hasn't.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 87

Yup, it's the Woz, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer, engineer, and inventor. Nice work!

It looks like supi13 got his guess in *just* before Balki did. So close!

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 87

I think it's arguable, but I disagree. Most people would not say Buffet is associated with politics, and the opening paragraphs of his Wikipedia page doesn't mention politics at all. Or we could go full Balki and decide that anyone who has voted is associated with politics. The “Full Balki is simpl...
