This is pretty tense, as far as games with absolutely no stakes are concerned. I’m in the lead, but with only four possible answers to the last question, no lead is safe. I have a feeling that one of the four will be a surprisingly large sheep, with not much room between the other three; I’m hoping I didn’t make the wrong choice.
You’ll have to wait and see ;)

The question said there were ten - I assume #10 (which went unused) was Brunei. Was that the one you had in mind?

I briefly considered Cyprus, which is at arguably Asian.

I think so! When I was researching the question, I kept finding different lists. I meant to take the number of possible answers out of the question to avoid confusion.

4. ASIAN ISLAND NATIONS
Name one of the 10 island nations of Asia
I've got no skin in this game, but why is Papua New Guinea incorrect but East Timor correct? I know there might be a subtlety here about what's considered Asia vs Oceania, but seeing as PNG shares an island with Indonesia as well, and East Timor and PNG are so close to each other, I'd want to consider it.
Dunno. Maybe I just like marking people wrong* and eliminating them from the game? :twisted:

I found this answer online

*actually, I don't like marking people wrong
Thanks! This one also gives a fairly compelling reason for New Guinea to be connected to Australia.
Bummer.

Q6 is Think Different in a nutshell. "Of course everyone's going to pick the hip Justice with her own movie out, so I'd better pivot" my aunt Fanny.

This was fun and very cleverly designed. The trivia pursuit question was awesome - like the third level of a video game where the shit hits the fan. Several of us didn't see what hit us. Gotta be 30 years since I've seen that game. It was great fun to play until all the cards have been seen and then it was worthless. I just answered "Roddy McDowell" on all the actor questions.

Muy bueno, el morbeedo!
