    Well, i had a new idea, how about a map of the places a computer game features as specific locations in its world?



    :)

    Will surely give more clues, although in theory some might even guess it from the map and the first clue. The places are: Ireland, Syria, France, Spain, England (i hope those were all...).

    Why are Scotland and Wales coloured as well if only England is mentioned specifically?

    I'll take a guess at Broken Sword - Shadow of the Templars.

    England is used interchangably with UK in Denmark at least. I think Kyriakos is riding the very same discourse.

    Correct answer :king: That was a very good adventure game.

    (as for England/UK, i was too bored to color only a part of the map which already had the borders of countries nicely formed).

    That was unexpected. I couldn't remember whether the desert section was in Syria or Morocco. :)

    I'll just put something up since the thread seems quiet.

    This map displays two things- please guess what they are.

    Former dependencies of both the Soviet Union/Russian Empire and the Ottoman Sultanate?

    There is some pacific micronation there too. Past protectorate of Japan or Britain i guess.

    Btw: Isn't the Easter island part of some nation? (Chile or something of the kind).

    I'll let you guys keep at it for a day or two before I give the answer... no-one's got it so far.

    You're supposed to give us (i.e. me) a hint.

    I think the map displays a few of the countries which can be colored in yellow and red.

    All right, the country in yellow is Guam. That's a hint.

    Also, the colours used on the map are arbitrary- they don't have any special meaning.

    Ongoing disputes on en/exclaves and such, I'd say.

    Nagorno-Karabakh / Nahicevan
    Moldavia/Bessarabia/crazy separatists
    …

    OK, here's the answer:

    The yellow shows countries which are a member of GUAM, while the red shows countries which are Guam.

    It does seem like territorial disputes with Russia/Russian client states are the main reason behind GUAM's existence.

    ^Nice idea :) Very hard to guess though if one did not know of the political entity termed Guam and had no reason to google it either.
