Rhode Scholar
trivia game

third game that greatly challenges your knowledge
of the many aspects of Rhode Island. ($12.00 in stores)

Rhode Scholar was designed after Rhode Test (2009) which sold out quickly.  It seems that Rhode Islanders delight in facts about their state. Scholar is more difficult than Rhode Test because it includes two new areas:  Rhode Island Villages and National Register Sites (in Rhode Island). These two categories occupy over sixty percent of the game. Besides these categories, the game includes Rhode Island people, cities & towns, sports, buildings, museums, and businesses. Printed in black ink on ivory paper, the game is meant to teach as well as amuse.  It comes in a cute metal box and includes a set of instructions for play.

Sells in stores for $12.
