While looking up the game YoYo, the search produced a second game, namely:

Ãóëëèâåð â Ëèëèïóòèè is an alternate name of Gulliver's Travel

The game's publisher is : Two Giraffe (Äâà æèðàôà)

Now, Question One: shouldn't all those dummy characters be removed,

And Two Why does a search with YoYo produce Gulliver's Travel as a result???

[Disclaimer: I acknowlegde the fact that I shouldnt have tried to lookup YoYo in the first place]

I submitted a correction for the former. Don't know how to submit a correction for the publisher name.

They are in cyrillic alphabet:

Гулливер в Лилипутии = Gulliver v Liliputii

Два жирафа = Dva zhirafa

It seems that BGG is not returning their pages in UTF-8 encoding. Probably leading to the funny representation of the character in the search results.
The encoding could have also gone out of wack in the DB

I thought all that stuff was Gaelic.
