    The six players who were tied with one week to go answered all of last week's questions correctly, so we still have a six-way tie for first place at the end of the month.

    Congratulations to @57th Indiana Infantry, @ErnieMac, @lelliott19, @sarladaise, @Stony, and @Wallyfish, all of whom have been winners in one or more previous months.

    Do you like to play trivia? If you do, you should consider submitting questions! Member donated questions are what is keeping the trivia game going.

    When your question is used, you will be awarded 10 points.

    How do you submit a question? That's easy! simply send @ami a private conversation with "trivia question" as the title. list your question, with answer and source in the message box. if you wish to send more than one question, please do so by replying to the conversation.

    Don't worry if you don't get a reply from me. You will see your question has been used when I edit the conversation and remove the question.

    Congratulations to our 6 winners!, and a special “shout out” to one of our newer players from Russia - Pavel. Good job! I shudder to think how I would do on a Trivia game on mid-1800’s Russian history with, of course, questions in Russian.

    Congratulations to all who plays. We all gain additional knowledge on the CW by playing this game. Plus it really helps fine tune our research capabilities.

    I am retired so I can spend more time than most on research (I had almost 14 hours finding the Letterman/WS King answer). I am a big Gettysburg fan and this game spreads my knowledge base in all directions of the CW.

    For those that never heard of WS King, his name was William Shakespeare King. D0 a search on that name and you will get a thousand hits on King Lear.

    Congrats to the winners!

    After getting nowhere with that excellent but puzzling riddle (I never heard of the person it was about, which is probably why I had to give up), and another late-in-the-month question, I somehow skipped one question altogether. I was traveling that day and was held up for over an hour by an overturned propane tanker truck on I-5 in downtown Seattle. I'm so thankful that it didn't blow up that I don't regret the traffic jam, the detour, or the missed trivia question!

    I agree with @Wallyfish that we learn a lot--both about the ACW and research--by participating in this game!
