Trivia Challenge - September 2009

Recommended Posts

Willmorris created a trivia game a while back and I wish to bring it back. I asked him and he gave his permission, here is his description of the game.

?We're going to run through 15 sports questions. Every question will have at least five valid answers. Your job is to PM me with one valid answer. (Only one answer given per question per person, please.) If you give a valid answer, and nobody has given that valid answer ahead of you, you score one to three points (depending on question level), plus a bonus point for the first valid answer I receive.

The trick, of course, is that you don't know which answers have already been given. Beware, as if you give an answer that was already given, or you give an invalid answer, you score zero points for the question.

Each question will last for 24 hours, with the deadline being 24 hours from the timestamp of each question post. Only answers timestamped before the deadline will be eligible to score points. Most points after 15 questions wins.

By the way, all questions will be asked in this thread. You may ask questions about my questions in this thread, but no guarantees that I will answer them. Also, it is suggested not to post answers in this thread. Researching answers is definitely acceptable. While I will accept answers that appear in this thread, it makes it a lot easier for other people to know which answers have already been guessed.

The first five questions have a base value of one point apiece. The game starts now.?

I am surprised I did not received more answers for this question, the holiday may have had something to do with it.

Two reminders, I received a few late entries that could not be accepted, sorry. Also anybody can join the game at anytime, later questions are worth more so you still have a shot at winning.
