Sound good/bad?

Bad. It would make it too easy, unless the objects in the pictures are incredibly obscure.

I think if we made it multiple choice it would be easier to guess the correct answer. However, I probably would not find as much enjoyment in finding the right answer (or dismay at the wrong one.)

Correct Answer for Question #20: Princeton University

Originators of the famous "Princeton Offense" in basketball. Also the originators of a football helmet design that was borrowed and made ultra-famous by the University of Michigan.

Ah. I was looking up the names of every foul in the game, plus any university that had been sanctioned recently...curse you homonyms! :?

Correct Answer for Question #21: Ouzoud Falls, Morocco

"Ouzoud" means "olive" in Berber and refers to the olive trees that proliferate the area. And the falls are located east of the city of "white house," aka "Casablanca" in Morocco.

Hah, no it was during the summer, no snow.

Actually, you know what? There was snow. Glacier National Park has snow-capped mountains year round.

No correct answers so far.

Hint #3: Big Sky

Correct Answer for Question #23: Weber State University

Did my Glacier National Park anecdote throw a couple of you? :cool: That wasn't part of the hint, so use with caution. She worked at Yellowstone over the summer and we drove up to Glacier for a few days.

Final question coming up. It will be up all weekend.

At this time I am not planning on running the game in April. There just isn't enough participation: 15 of 23 questions so far this round have received four or fewer responses.
