[Forum Game] Username as Countries

Discussion in 'Forum Games' started by wafflecoffee, Jun 26, 2019.

  1. I was looking through the old forum games, most of which are probably long forgotten, and decided I wanted to revive a few of them, one or two with a set of modified rules. One that really stuck out for me was nfell's "Username as countries" game, and I want to start it again with a set of modified rules. Credit to nfell for this idea and most of the rules.
    Rules:
    - you can do your username or your real name or both.
    - must be the English-language names for sovereign states. this includes the 193 UN member states, however also includes other disputed states such as Abkhazia, Kosovo, Palestine, etc. this means that places like England or Greenland does not count!
    - exception to the above rule: the rule is nullified for the letters W and X, meaning that places like Wales or Xina (China in Catalan) count.
    - you can use the same country twice, but try not to!
    - for numbers, use the first letter of that number in long form (e.g., 3 could be Thailand)
    - try not to google it
    - be creative
    - have fun!
    Example: my username could be:
    Wales
    Andorra
    France
    Finland
    Laos
    Estonia
    Cyprus
    Oman
    Fiji
    France
    Ethiopia
    Eritrea
    And my IRL name could be:
    Somalia
    Yemen
    Dominican Republic
    Netherlands
    El Salvador
    Yemen
    Let the games begin!

    Iceland
    Japan
    Netherlands
    Estonia
    Namibia (Nambia :rolleyes:)

    I've been to four of these, and in 2 or 3 days to five. :D

    It's slightly more difficult to do this as a Dutch person, as some letters switch when moving to English: Oostenrijk would've fit, but that's Austria... :p

    How about Northern Ireland? ;)

  5. *controversial statement here*
    It's part of the UK, technically... but as someone with large parts of ancestry tracing back to Ireland, I do have opinions on this...
  6. Been there multiple times, Italy is fantastic! :)

    Going there in approximately a week. :D I am expecting it to be good, though. :p

    Yes, that's what I meant, it should've been listed there. ;)

    Italy has had its odd leaders too, so it's not that far off. :p

  9. I don't know. I guess I just prefer 'countries' to mean 'sovereign states' because in my mind, England, Scotland, etc. are just constituencies of the actual 'country' of the UK. I know this explanation is probably not satisfactory and that the English are very different from the Scottish and so on but in my mind, they're all one country.
  10. Guatemala
    Oman
    Albania
    Thailand
