    New SKating Trivia Game


    HI, everyone.

    Sorry for the delay. Work's been crazy and I'm having work done on my house, too.

    Anyway, I did win the game on Ebay. As an FYI for those of you who may want to win one for yourself. The board has 4 circles - gold, silver, bronze & pro. Everyone starts at bronze. When you answer 4 bronze questions correctly, you move onto Silver, and then Gold and then Pro. To win, you must answer 4 questions in each category. Answering a question correctly on a vacant bonus spot, earns 2 points. There are also risk spots. On Competition spots, everyone rolls and whoever has the highest roll wins the opportunity to win another point by answering a question - only people in that level or lower can compete.

    Since we can't play with the board, I'll just list some of the questions by category. I'll have to change some since they are True or False. I'm sure some of these are repeats from the prior game, but I'm just using the cards from the game. Good luck.

    1 point for Bronze, 2 for silver, 3 for god, 4 for pro. Points go to 1st person to post correct answer.

    Re: Trivia


    I thought that there wasn't a ladies competition at the 1908 olys? So, my answer to <em>silver q.2</em> and <em>Pro 3</em> was: no one. But some people gave an answer, so maybe I'm wrong.

    Here are my guesses:

    Bronze: 1. American team died in plane crash
    2. 1982 world ladies champ: Elaine Zayak
    3. Alexander Zaitsev
    4. The Art of Skating: England?
    5. nc
    6. 1?
    7. Brian Boitano
    8. nc

    Silver: 1. 1908
    2. no one
    3. lady's foot
    4. 5'5"
    5. Morrow-Distelmayer?
    6. Scott Hamilton
    7. Jackson Haines

    Gold: 1. nc
    2. Torvill & Dean
    3. Sonja Henie
    4. St. Petersburg, 1896
    5, 6, 7, : nc

    Pro: 1. The Protopopovs?
    2. nc
    3. no one
    4. 12
    5, 6: nc
    7. Charles Tickner
    8. nc

    I don't think I have many good answers, but it was fun to try!

    PS: If you intend on submitting other qs, it would be convenient if you would number them, so we don't have to rewrite the questions all over... ?

    The name of the board game is Ice Skating Trivia. I bought it off Ebay.

    Sorry for the delay. Like I said, works been crazed ... and this week isn't looking much better. I'm checking your answers right now. I'll let you know what remains unanswered and post some new questions before the night is over.

    I wish I had thought of numbering. It's going to be harder to keep track since I'm now tracking on a spreadsheet.

    Hope you don't mind me suggesting that you cut and paste. Many of the others copied the questions and categories into their post and inserted their answers. THANKS ALL - makes it much easier for me to check your answers.

    Also, if someone is curious about an answer, I can e-mail them the spreadsheet with the answers. Just send me a ezboard message - I'll only send you the correctly answered questions.

    BTW, I'm not verifying any of the 'official' answers from the game. If you wish to challenge one of your answers, just send me a link to a legitimate website or refer me to a valid reference.
