Wanna play do it yourself trivia?

#34923 3 years, 4 months ago
I don't know why, but this idea came to me last night as something we could all do together. Here's how it would work: someone posts a trivia question, and makes up a prize, and the rest of us try to answer without checking outside sources, just from our own current knowledge. After a set amount of time, to be decided by the poster, or when the correct answer is reached, the answer is posted, and the game is over.
I'll start: Name the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. 4 hours. Prize: Furthur Shoreline 'air' poster; 2 minute 'air' guitar solo played by Jimmy Page; and an 'air' kiss blown to you by your favorite movie star.
How's that sound?

That's a good start, but not quite the canonical 7, plus you have one listed twice. Thanks for humouring me and going along with my little game.

I don't think all of those are right.

Pyramids
Temple of Zeus
Hanging gardens of Babylon
Temple of Mauslos (sic)
Colossus of Rhodes
Parthenon (sic)
Stonehenge?

Not sure of that last one. That's from memory, I swear. I know they are all BC, and the Coliseum, and the Great wall are AD.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Good job, you got 5 of the 7 right. It's hard to remember them all. I know them by heart, but one always escapes me, and it's not always the same one.

I used to know them all too, but find I'm having trouble remembering them now. I always get Parthenon, and Pantheon mixed
up. And I'm fairly certain Stonhenge was not part of it. Haven't looked it up yet, I'm still thinking.

Isn't the Lighthouse (or was is the Library?) at Alexandria one of them?

I'm closing in, it's some kind of ancient lighthouse. I don't rmember it's exact name, but Pharoh's light house rings a bell.
