    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).

    Guam is included but distinct from, Ukraine, Georgia, and Azerbaijan.

    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.
