WHERE IN THE WORLD #7

It's time to figure out where in the world I am once again! Grin

How It Works
  • You only need to name the country in most cases. Guesses that involve the USA as the answer will require a state as well.

  • Sometimes I might be located on an island, or another location that is not itself a country nor within an actual country. If that location is not a country, then I will treat that location as being the country to which it belongs to as a territory. So if I am located on an island that is a territory of Spain, then Spain will be its country. However, in instances like this, the correct answer can also be the exact territory name if that is given before the name of the country that territory belongs to.

  • This is a team based game, however I will award bonus XP to those who assist the most in narrowing down the answer.

  • Each participant may ask one yes/no question to narrow down the country per day; however guessing the country/territory by name has no limit. Guessing the country/territory incorrectly will not reward XP due to the fact it has unlimited tries.

  • Asking a yes/no question that results in an answer that notably gets closer to the destination will reward you with 25XP. A yes/no question that results in an answer that does not notably narrow down the answer will reward you with 10XP. Finding the correct country will reward you with 100XP. As an example, if you asked me "Are you located in the continent of Africa?" and I tell you no, that would be worth 10XP because there are still six continents I could be located on. If I were on that continent though, you would have notably narrowed down the answer to get 25XP.

  • I may make adjustments to the game if necessary, as you may have noticed with the rules changing a little once again.

  • If you have suggestions for different ways to award XP based on progress, I would be very interested to hear it. Smile

Here's the photo I took when I arrived at my new location! Where am I?

Yes. I wasn't sure whether to take this as an answer because the definitive location is Hong Kong, which is technically a territory of China and not a country, but some view it as such.

South China Sea. Not that the answer matters as an answer was found but I will still give credit to you for this despite the answer being guessed before your post.
