Trivia 3 Week 28 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

If this weeks trivia were a page in the Armada Playtesters Guide, it'd be the one that suggests that "your best friend against targeting missiles is your chaff pod."
Welcome to Game Three, Week Twenty-Eight Trivia. We play each week. Every Monday two main questions and one bonus question are posted to alt.games.wing-commander and listed at the CIC. Please email answers to CReid1701@aol.com or ChrisReid@wcnews.com. Be sure to include a name you would like to be known under for the Scoreboard that will be up soon. Have your answers in before this coming Sunday (May 13, 2001) to ensure your answers are recorded. Answers submitted early may be returned and you may be able to fix incorrect answers, time permitting. Main questions answered correctly are good for 5 points, bonuses good for 3.

Also feel free to try our new auto trivia submission device that Kris cooked up for us at trivia.shtml
