2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 2, Day 3

Post by DadofTwins »

I'm percolating an idea to add a TOC Wild Card. I'll be contacting some of you privately to see what you think before I say more, so keep an eye on your PM inboxes.

On we go.

Please note -- There is some math involved in one of today's categories, but calculators are NOT allowed. Please do any calculations in your head, like you would on The Show.

Thanks.

RISK BOARD GEOGRAPHY

2: French and Malagasay are the official languages of this island nation off the coast of Africa.

4: This “Bolivarian Republic” has the northernmost national capital in South America, and is the only Spanish-speaking South American country entirely north of the Tropic of Cancer (actually, this should be Equator).

6: The only country in mainland Europe mentioned by name on the Risk board, this Black Sea country is -- for now -- second in population and third in size among former Soviet republics.

8: Swan River Colony, which included this state's capital of Perth, was established in 1829.

10: In Risk, this volcanically-active peninsula in far eastern Russia connects with Alaska and Japan.

PERFECT CUBES

3: The mile was originally named for the distance a Roman soldier could cover in this many paces.

6: Paul McCartney wrote this song in 1958 – at age 16 – about a question he would not get a definitive answer for until 2006.

9: Originally proposed as part of the Bill of Rights, this amendment took longer to ratify than any other.

12: Fleetwood Mac's Greatest Hits album of 1988 was, most likely, the last release by a major label in this audio format.

15: The year in which emperor Hadrian built the Pantheon, or the spell number in the Book of the Dead that gives instructions for the ritual “Weighing of the Heart.”
