Ok, we get a wildcard question too, cool!!!

How is consensus gonna work? This could take weeks, lol.

Maybe you could put up some kind of rule like a time limit per question to reach a consensus point.

We need questions that narrow the field

Maybe the first 2 should be

Is it in the northern hemisphere?
Is it in the West on a world map?

These 2 questions narrow the field by 75%


QG hit the nail on the head, these 2 opening questions narrow the field more than any other. Agreed?

After that, we can decide if we should proceed with ?s about the predominant language, climate, type of govt, etc

Depending on which quadrant, perhaps, is it in a country that borders an ocean?

NO

please look at a map
I did. Before I origionally posted.

I'm operating on the idea that with 2 simple yes or no questions we could reduce our target area to about 1/4 the globe... then set up a few more questions to get to the city...Here's the idea:

"Any circle drawn around the Earth divides it into two equal halves called hemispheres. There are generally considered to be four hemispheres: Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western.

www.nationalgeographic.org...

So lets say our first Y/N question is : is it in northern hemisphere?
lets say answer is "NO"
we now know its somewhere in Southern hemisphere.

Then lets say our next Y/N question is : Is it in Eastern hemisphere?
Lets say answer is "YES"

so now we would know our target is SE.

once we know what part of the globe we are looking at ....we can generate another yes or no question to get closer...I suppose I could be mistaken but that just seems to make logical sense to me.
I'm trying to understand your position.

Perhaps we should ask if Waldo has ever been to the city?
Or: Do people there drink water?

Can we buy a vowel?
Does this question, count as a question?

Is there a person there in that city, right now, wearing a funny hat, sporting sideburns, sensible shoes, holding a tennis-ball, and telling a fishing tale?
