Congratulations, everybody! I hope you enjoyed the game!

You have one challenge left unsolved.

Round 9 Challenge
Final Round

Last round! To the victor go the spoils!

If you are a brainiac, mister, you should be able to find the
country that will complete this series and earn the right to vote:

Oman, Chad, Peru, Mali, India, Sweden, Canada, _______

Hint #1: There is a reason why I put "the" and "country" on different lines.
Hint #2: There are two reasons why the series is shown within a quote box.
Bone Toss: Gizzer wrote, "Tag, you're it!"


This challenge has a well hidden clue. If you look between "the" and "country", you won't see anything there. There is something there, however. The move to a new line is there as a hint to look for something, but this kind of clue can be hidden without the gap in the text created by whitetext. Plus, it won't show up if you highlight, or if you simply copy and paste. You need to quote the text to see it, which is the first reason why the series is in a quotebox. Don't actually post it though, just look at the text along with the formatting tags. You'll see a special tag used to mark text. I used this kind of tag last round so I could point to the Round 8 and 9 challenges from the first post. The "name" of the tag is "hidden". So you are looking for a "hidden country".

There are several teasers named "Hidden Country". This one was submitted by Victor, as in "to the victor go the spoils!"

The second use for the quote box is to show that the series comes, not from the teaser itself, but from a comment on the teaser. You'll see that mr_brainiac left the following comment:

Man, O MAN, CHAD and I PERUsed the anoMALIes of the sentence and asked, IN DIAlectS WE DENtists use, "CAN A DAmned nation really be the hidDEN MARK we seek?

So, the answer is Denmark.

Yay! Rated The Best for a very fun game, Gizzer! =D

I wish I had gotten back on at the end of the round to actually vote (I actually was able to from solving Round 7's clue, Wee!) but I'm glad the humans won nonetheless =D

Great job to the wolves, too! Had KRUGER not divined you, I'm not sure I would've ever suspected any of you! & Thanks to Buu441 & Mocha613 for being amazing teammates! (Especially considering Buu was a wolf; I appreciate not being eaten )

Very good game, guys. Had some excellent Seering and teamwork in several of the TBs.

Top ratings for a top mod.

This shouldn't have even been called a werewolf game. This game was WAY too heavily favoring towards the humans. Great idea, but needs a lot of work. One star.

You are absolutely correct, Lance, it's not a werewolf game. It's a game of solving challenges that just happens to be played within the framework of a werewolf game. Sometimes I use the WTB platform. People generally understand this and rate it according to the challenges, not the outcome.

One star? Seems someone missed the point of the framework of this game... And that's coming from a Wolf! And anyway, even if it seemed unbalanced, the rest of the game was very good. It's very rare to have such an active and involved Moderator. It would have been nice for you to at least respect all of the work she put into this game.

I will slightly agree that some tweaks would be appreciated: I think the number of people on each team should be a bit more equal. In my own team (Team Charlie), there were only two of us. It's very difficult to make a team work when only one of its members is even trying. I feel a tad cheated out of the same experience everyone else had. So, maybe no teams with fewer than 3 people in them? Or a Red vs Blue type set-up?

I agree, one star seems rather harsh here. I can understand not giving it a four star for the reasons outlined, but for me, one stars are reserved for games like this, where the mod doesn't contribute much but the game runs okay (Zero stars are for games like this or... Unfortunately just about any game I have seen Ihmisen mod >_>, Elios can attest to this...) Gizzer was very active, amazingly so, kept an eye on all aspects of the game, put an amazing amount of effort into each round, advised of all the unusual rules in this game and gave two sample games to see if this game was right for you. How is that a one star? I mean, I know what is done is done, you can't change your vote if you wanted to, but I just find that ridiculously unfair. Anyway, I had fun, just sad to see so much general negativity. Sure, not everything is ever perfect, but focus on the bright side of things not with eyes solidly trained on the one negative thing you find

Top ratings, of course. I thought that was a no-brainer (unlike the above challenge), but apparently not.

Among the best games I've ever played, if not the best.

Shoutout to my awesome teammates, deb, kruger, and unc, for... well, for being awesome!

I didn't even know you could do that, interesting. Since I can't quote it now, had to go and view source to see it. That is pretty cool. Although I was over all the other brain teasers that mentioned countries, don't think I ever found that one. I guess I am not cut out for scavenger hunts xD

Good game all!

Ok, now one star is really unfair to Gizzer. Now, I can see why you would say that it heavily favoring towards the humans. However, even so, that does not seem justifiable for one star.

Anyway, I want to thank dfamina for being an amazing team mate! And Gizzer, thank you for this amazing game, and all the hard work you put in, managing not only this game but also the 5 TBs. I have to say, the challenges all got so much harder. I hope I will be able to play the next one!

what is sense??and if i am not making sense, then why i say it?? I SAY IT COZ IT MAKE SENSE TO ME BUT WHY IT DON'T MAKE SENSE TO YOU????????? sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darn. I found mr_brainiac, but I guess his comment wasn't recent enough to be listed under his recent teaser comments. Didn't think of quoting it until Hint #2, and after that, I was too busy wondering where the first part of the code was... you know, the part that you click on, if that makes any sense.

Great challenges!

Thanks TanCW!

I fear you give me more credit than I deserve, as I wasn't much help with the teasers after Round 2, but I had fun nonetheless and continued to watch the game very closely right to the end.

I can see where Lance is coming from, but I based it off of my own experience and gave it four stars. I've seen highly rated games for mods that gave less than half the effort Gizzer did; rarely is WWG so involved and thought-provoking.

All in all, great game, and it was a pleasure working with Tan and Witty.

Wow, very detailed work there, Gizzer! I'm so impressed with how you come up with these challenges

Thanks GiZ for a great game! A great exercise of the brain and brought me back to some of the places on Braingle I haven't been in years! Also, thanks for putting me with such a great team! It was wonderful to work with two incredible thinkers who brought such unique ideas and perspectives to the table! Plus I have made some new friends in the process.

I agree with Elios, three people in a team was a good minimum size for a team. I appreciated the slow release of clues, when I got stuck, I knew to keep checking back for another tidbit to help along the way.

Good job Team Bazinga! Buu and Yuffie!

I applaud Gizzer for excellent moderation of this game. After seeing how much work she had to put into this game with the challenges, it is understandable why she can't moderate more often. But after playing for the short time that I did, I will say it was worth the wait. Maybe next time my life will be stable enough to be more active. I give you four stars to counteract some of those who might rate your game lower. I guess we can all take a breath now before the next game. (Well, to be truthful, I have been in two WWG games since I was ousted from this game.)
