Weekly Trivia – Round #8

Welcome back to Platform Nation’s weekly trivia. I can’t believe that I’m nearing double digits for the number of installments of this fun little article.  I’d like to get some feedback from the readers on what you like about the trivia, what you don’t like, what you’d like to see.  There haven’t been a large number of people participating each week.  I’d like to see a few more people taking a shot at the answers.

With that said,  let’s get on to the trivia for this week.

Set #8 Trivia Questions:

  1. What game starts off with the following text.  “West of House. You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door. There is a small mailbox here.”
