Hi Johnny,

But my divination rod tells me I should vote for #4 and #7 (the Pacific Islander and the Indonesian game)

Cheers,
Hugo

I don't think any are believable. After I eliminated all those centered in SE Asia or thereabouts, and one definition that's been played before, I had it filtered down to 4 left, so I'm voting for 5 and 12.
