Adventurous Gentlemen of Period Dramas Game

Photo Bonus Question: Which period drama do these dashing soldiers appear in?

Many of our favorite period dramas feature adventurous gentlemen that serve in the Navy or Army of their day or are even swashbuckling pirates!

There are also four Trivia Questions and a Photo Bonus Question to answer for extra points!


To Play: Unscramble the characters' names below and leave a comment telling your guesses and which period drama / story each character is from. You can earn extra points by answering the four Trivia Questions below to the best of your ability - no looking up answers - and the Bonus Question above. I'll respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish on the characters. The answers will be posted next Saturday.

Robert Louis Stevenson stories are very good and not just for boys (I'm working on a film review for this week so be on the lookout!), my mom read two or three of his books to us when we were kids and I'm listening to an audiobook of one right now. :)

24- Two? Two. Um, well, the obvious one is their father, but I can't remember who else! Oh dear!
25- I'm going to say World War I. ;)

Thanks for the game! This must have taken a lot of work!

Your guesses on Trivia Questions #22, #24 (two points for naming one) and #25 were correct. Your guess on #23 was incorrect.
Your might not know #11, a bit obscure I think but the name is neat.
So your score is...69 points! Good work!

It actually didn't seem to take very much work to put the game together, maybe because I'd already been thinking of some characters before I wrote it up Friday night. The biggest thing comes now, adding up all the different parts of the scores! :) You commend about Richard Carstone MMG! :)
