The New Trivia Game
« on: September 12, 2006, 09:06:43 AM »
Wo-to-ko-mo-to! It's quiz time!


The rules are... answer the last  question and ask a new one! Though they have to be questions you can look up online. So no.. "What's the colour of my uncles eyes?" stuff!  :P

Also, we'll be proposing a subject each week...starting now, the general topic is history!


I go first I go first!

What are the names of all the Apollo 11 astronauts?  ;)

What is "you are" in Ullster Irish Gaelic? (I just love the way it's pronounced...)

The contemporary name Thursday comes from the Old English Žunresdęg, meaning "Day of Thunor", this being a rough Germanic equivalent to the Latin Iovis Dies, "Jupiter's Day."



What are the names of all the members of the last line of the Romanov family?

You have to ask it as a question. A bit like jeopardy. By the way, the english weekday thursday is named after Thor, that's the answer we were looking for. ;P

I think that's probably right in some dialect. I learned it as

"Tį tś."

Thunor is related to Donar who is the Teutonic precursor of the Nordic Thor.

Ooh, I have got to get my sister onto this forum. The Romanov dynasty is her speciality.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

Ok, this trivia question was answered before, but it wasn't accurate. I'm looking for the family members of the LAST Romanov family...right before the family disappeared.

And, the set of questions for the next week MUST deal with general history (any political or debatable questions will be deleted and replaced).

Well.. unofficially it's Edward D. Wood Jr, but if you talk to video game enthusiasts it's Uwe Boll, and if you talk to a fan of some source material it's whoever director movie-butchered their favourite subject of fandom.  :P

Which director has directed the most movies?   :o
