Each of the book’s 210 MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS set up in game format allows players to give informed answers even for the book’s more ambitious questions. In addition, most answers include in-depth supportive background offering the book's players even greater knowledge about correct responses.
Here are two sample questions:
• How many times has a Cardinals pitcher won 20 or more games in a single season?
• What was the original distance to the center field wall at Busch Stadium?
The book also includes the publisher’s unique COOL FACTS placed at the end of each of the first four sections. Cool Facts allow the book’s researcher more freedom to highlight and expand on particularly interesting or thought-provoking facts about the team and its history.
Two SCORE SHEETS located at the end of the book permit players to record their answers as they play, to calculate their scores for each of the book’s five sections as well as their final overall score, and to determine winners for multi-player situations. Free downloadable score sheets are also available from the publisher’s Web site.
All of this makes Cardinalology Trivia Challenge: St. Louis Cardinals Baseball a great gift for yourself or for friends and family.
