In case anyone fails to notice, that's a "Corona" beer in the cart behind the hoarder. Poor beer company. Such a perfectly good name before. Will they change it going forward, I wonder?

I actually agree with you, Gary, that it is a perfectly good name for that beer. Corona in Spanish means crown in English. Until this matter is under control, or cases of the virus have been brought to a solidly manageable level, I suppose the beer company is going to hold its course. Who knows? Maybe that beer and the slice of lime that goes so well with it will become a battle symbol against the virus in the future.

Latin, one may say, is the mother of all European languages, so naturally it goes to follow that corona is Latin for The Crown. Latin, however, is considered a "dead language" as it is not spoke except among scholars. I was simply choosing Spanish as the language represented in the discussion as the beer company is Mexican and located in Mexico–Spanish is their official language. 

 

La Corona is Italian for The Crown, but as the beer, Corona is not Italian, it would hardly be the correct analogy.

 

Thanks for your post!  :)

A corona is also an aura of plasma that surrounds the Sun and other stars.

I understand, but as some may like the current Multiplayer system, we believe many more will like the upcoming Singleplayer system. Our developers have created the best AI any Stratego-game has ever seen.

Over 5 years old? That's pulling one out of the hat, Fairway. 🙂

The success of the new app is that's it's far better on a phone or tablet than the old app which looked identical to the desktop version. But, yeah, Mick's Single-player game? It's only success is that it's superb as a bad joke.

Sorry, Don. I've only got a big "?" for you on that. Is this a Homer Simpson reference? 😄

It frustrates me that there are no improvements to this website. Then when someone post some critics you often respond with some kind of unrelated compliment. That's pretty annoying.
