Guess the City [Game]

Postby Lenguas » 2011-03-05, 21:13

I'm thinking of a city in the world. You may ask questions about the city to try to guess which one it is. However, you can't ask things like "Is it in Europe?" or "Do the people there speak Swedish?"

Generally, I wouldn't answer questions about the geographic location except on a very localized level, but I guess I'll answer this one. Yes.

But don't ask is it in North America/Europe/Asia/Africa, next. :lol:
