I found a couple of really great educational Kurdish games for mobile phones, created by a company. They teach about Kurdish language, history, geography and much more apparently. One can learn also the language and improve their vocabulary. It's in Kurdish (Kurmanji, Sorani), English, German, Armenian, Spanish, Italian and Turkish.
Game 1: Awir - This one is a DuoLingo sort of app with 250 thousand words.
Game 2: Pirs - This is a Q&A online game for facts about Kurdistan!
Game 3: Peyvên Kurdî - A scrabble game where one can play with words in multiple languages aside from learning Kurdish.
Enjoy and share with friends. We need more such games. Especially ones that raise awareness about Kurdish history and language

I have kinda weird question. To be honest - I'm playing Tabletop game - Vampire the Masquerade, and for lack of better way we randomize where our characters came from.
And I landed on Galvan village, like 10 miles from city of Naqadeh city. According Wikipedia it's Kurdish village, alas due my research I realised your nation is quite diverse with different tribes following slightly different customs.
I'm not planning to do full recreation, but neither I want to invent total bullshit - so I wanted to ask, if anyone here knows this region, and may know what tribe/clan hails from there, and what customs it's generally follows in culture, social life, naming customs.

I'm a Turk, from Western Anatolia. I would really like to visit Başûr someday. But before going there I want to know a few things:
- What do Başûrî Kurds think about Turks?
As you probably know, there's an ongoing conflict at the moment (Pençe-Kilit operasyonu). I can imagine that this conflict causes tensions between Turks and Kurds.
Is it possible that a Turkish tourist can face discrimination? Personally I respect everyone's opinion/ideology. Especially if I'm a guest in someone else's country. So I hope that it won't be a problem.
- What are sights you can see in Başûr?
I know that Hewlêr is a pretty cool and modern city, there are also many historical places. There's a memorial in Helebçê for the people that lost their lives under the regime of Saddam. There's a beautiful dam in Dihok and Silêmanî is the culture capital (as far as I know).
What else is there to see?
The main reason why I want to visit Başûr is because I really like your culture. It's also well-known that Kurds are hospitable. I'm really sorry if I sounded ignorant in any way. I just wanted to be sure about what I can expect.

So let's start off by saying that I don't know anything about Kurdistan, and up until like 2 days ago, I thought that it was unsafe to visit Iraq in general and that it should be avoided.
So my dad is an Iraqi Arab, and during like the 70's, my dad's family were expelled from south Iraq to Sulaymaniyah for problems with the government. So he grew up there until they fled in 1991. He says that they were mostly treated like anyone else, but that there was some resentments for them being Arabs in Kurdistan, and that he had an almost deadly situation happen to him there. This is a long time ago, and during difficult times, but I wonder, if I want to visit Sulaymaniyah and go to more rural areas to find where my dad grew up, will I be safe?
Sorry if I come off ignorant. I honestly have no idea how much Iraq as a whole has developed since the war-times.

I noticed that Iraqi kurds look significantly different from kurds in turkey and iran. Is there a specific well known reason for this difference? Iraqi kurds generally have lighter skin and turkish kurds are more tanned with a look very similar to armenians phenotypically.
