Vector mentions Chess, Poker and Bridge in Forbidden Knowledge, but that's about it, as far as I know. (I'm still only 2/3 through FK, and have only read TRS other than that)

Good question!


EDIT: He also mentions the game that came before/inspired Bridge I think, (that or Poker? I can't remember which) but I can't remember what it was called; plus it was really just mentioned in passing.

Ah whist! I've been to many whist drives. Very Happy Yes, it would beget Bridge, very similar but without partners. Can't remember any games mentioned in the Gap series, but only read it once. Head like a seive. Rolling Eyes

Since no one has posted another...I'll jump in.

What real life physicist is mentioned by two different "characters" in the Gap Series?

I'm going to guess. But it's just a guess. Very Happy Heisenberg? (Or Einstein?)

Almost sure about Heisenberg.

And won't it be better to have one thread for all these questions?

No it's not. Wink

This one should be merged into the quiz, don't you think?

(Actually up to you really...but that's what I was thinking when I posted.)

Haha, I forgot I asked a question. However, I am pretty sure his real name is revealed in the story of how he got his ship in the first place.

That said, I will have to look it up.

From what I can remember, it was mentioned that he'd had another name, and the current one was tied to his ship. But I don't think it specified what his real name was.

Edit, edit, edit. Server errors keep eating my posts.

I thought it was in ADaHGA, but I couldn't find the scene. Confused

And I can't find my copy of FK.

I didn't reread the whole thing. It just wasn't where I thought it was. It could still be in ADaHGA. Maybe I should just reread it.
