    Unhappy

    I've decided to add this board for plain trivia. My trivia boards seem to do well, so I decided a trivia board encompassing everything would be downright crazy, but cool. Yes, there is the random facts thread, but this adds a gaming element to it.

    Post questions and answers separately. If you get stuck, pull out a trivia game and ask those questions (but make sure you note the game) .

    Uh, I only got one to start with:

    There are three different rpgs as we know it (not as a genre, but as items) . Can you name them?

    ...he'd probably end up going into social commentary right off the bat, and then end up homeless and hungry out on the streets.

    He just SEEMED like that kind of person, but social commentary only works after you build up a name for yourself. *sigh* Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Okies, questions before I forget!

    1. What country has the lowest elevation? (the lowest HIGH elevation I suppose)

    2. What was the true name of the whale who played in "Free Willy"?

    3. In what order did the children get kicked out of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory?

    4. How many licks does it take to reach the center of a tootsie pop?

    5. The man who is directing "Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban" directed two lovely films in the 90's that were directed toward little girls. What were they?

    6. The Enlightenment was (as you should know) an event in Europe around the time the US became independant. What three things was the enlightenment supposed to acomplish? (many, many artists grumble)

    7. What city was Starbucks originally from?

    8. What is the range of a normal, B flat clarinet?

    Happy guessing!

    2) What's 987 times 789?
    3) Who created Calvin and Hobbes?
    4) How do you win on chapter 15 in Bahamut Lagoon?
    5) Infected Mushroom, where are they from?
    6) What's dr Phils lastname?
