Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

I don't th...

Re: Austria vs Bots

I completed my Russia game. Mostly it was an R/T vs. A/I, except Germany moved hard against me in 1902. I lost Warsaw, but with some good guesses, I was able to turn away the German attack and recover my position. By then, however, A/I had grown quite strong. Austria soon took SEV, Warsaw and Mosco...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Have played a bit further. Will recap now. Spring Movements 1904 My plan to stab Austria here would have been a better choice, but even then, I would have picked up Trieste, and still lost the fleet, and then would have promptly lost Ionian as well. Autumn Movements 1904 Now looking at this, Russia...

I was hoping someone would ask about her parents - she was the daughter of George Gordon, Lord Byron (whom I remember studying in Brit Lit in high school.)

Hmmm. I will guess Ada Lovelace.
Correct!

Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (née Byron; 10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852), aka Ada Lovelace, who by some was considered to have written and published the first computer program.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 68

13. No. Her husband doesn't have a knighthood and it's not Jane Austin? Then the only person it could possibly be is Hilary Mantel or the Queen Mother, and I don't think the Queen Mother's passion for writing erotic literature is widely known... Is it Hilary Mantel? September 2022 was less than 100...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Same here, surprised that bot Austria didn't immediately turn on you, although Ank-Con and what it means is pretty hard to ignore... also perhaps the lack of Rom-Ven makes it easier. Who knows what goes on in those bot brains.

Spectating and following along as well.
