Category 1 - The Great Gatsby
Category 2 - The Roaring Twenties

Single Person Play
Single play is much like the group game, with two additions. For reqular category questions (those questions that you get when you land on a colored square), you have 20 seconds to answer the question. If you do not answer within the time provided, the question will be marked wrong. In addition, you are only allowed 4 wrong answers for regular category questions. If you get a fifth answer wrong, then you lose the game.
Scott Rice and Amy Harris are the co-creators of the basic concept of the game. Scott programmed the game using Ajax. Lauren Stokes of Las Vegas - Clark County Library District created the question categories, wrote the questions and additional information.
