In Episode 10 the D6G team offered up the Days of Wonder game "Mystery of the Abbey" to a listener who could correctly answer our D6G trivia challenge.  We also stated that there would be bonus points for creativity.

We received some great entries, but none more thorough and creative then Nils' entry.  Nice job Nils, you're D6G autographed copy of the game is on its way.  And yes, having us sign it probably has devalued the product.   ;-)

We just had to share Nils entry with everyone.  He answered in the form of another quiz... with even more trivia and bonus questions!

3) Give us 1 word that we have invented on the d6 Generation.

Correct

Tacticalness: Episode 4b 15:20 by Raef
Yesteryore: Episode 6 45:54 by Raef
Infinateness: Episode 8 1:20:08 by Raef

Incorrect
Andy Rooneyish: Episode 2 1:10:11, incorrect because it was invented by Michael Jordal, a d6 fan, not by the d6 hosts

Probably incorrect because they're hopefully mispronounciations instead of a new word
