Brazilian Canary Report 3

1. I think that Redturtle got Turn 1 message.

1.1 - This means that the secret message for round 1 was: I am not from Australia, I am a woman, I am not an actress.

Gah.. so close! I kept thinking that she had to be on the continent, and didn't bother looking overseas... ](*,)

Well played by christianmoura and Fernando. You should check out Fernando's path from Turn 2 onwards - straight like an arrow heading westward ;)

WOOHOOOOO!!!!
:smt026

I was really tempted to follow Stompy, which would prove to be a major mistake.

The funny thing is that, from the moment I established Redturte as the closest agent on round 1, I had Hawai on the back of my mind.

On the end of round 4, the only possible cities, in my opinion, Queen Elizabeth could be on were Honolulu and Anaheim (CA). Easy choice.

I must also thank agents annawid and jttm80 for pinpointing "Queen Elizabeth".

Great Game! 8)

I liked how my turn 4 mistake caused Stompy to go Britney Spears on turn 5.

In the previous game, after the first turn I was the only one who knew it couldn't be an australian. So I kept guessing australians.
