The Belgians use nonante but not huitante and the Swiss use huitante and nonante (not really sure for the Swiss but that's what I've heard).
From what I know, the base 20 system comes from the celtic culture so logically, it gradually died when you go to the east.

Walk around the nearest car park,select random car number plates and in my head either add the numbers,multiply or divide.Simple,less sedentary than sudoku and it keeps the mind sharp. __________________ Bah!

Sudoku is logic, not math, to be fair.
