Hey, I'm currently making my ww2 game. It has a little trivia spin to it. The higher difficulty an answer you get right, the higher amount of enemy soldiers you get to kill. These are the difficulties, and I will provide an example for each of them.

1. EASY
Example: What year was Pearl Harbor first bombed?
2. MODERATE
Example: What was Mussolini's Italian ideology?
3. HARD
Example: Operation Torch was an invasion of what country?

This thread is for you to suggest more trivia questions I can use, I need a lot more. Please provide what difficulty they are intended to be, too.

"That idea may just be crazy enough... TO GET US ALL KILLED!" -Squidward Tentacles

I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

But being that his is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question. 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
