2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 7, Day 2

Post by DadofTwins » Tue Sep 10, 2013 3:58 pm

The RQ is still open, and the outcome of Round 6 hinges on the responses. So make sure you play it. You have until midnight tonight. We will announce a winner tomorrow afternoon.

Special thanks to rjaguar3 for handling the scoring this year. He's been a real game saver.

On we go.

10: This brand of pencil, named for a famous diamond, is believed to have been the first to be painted the standard yellow color.
