NOTE: There has been some uproar over this allready because the questions are not all about the Civil War. Its Trivia about our mod, not the civil war. If you dont like it, then dont do it. Simple. Just dont go abusing us because you might not know the answers. Every single Answer is out there.

I gotta admit that this is an excellent promotional quiz. If I had the funding, I would do something similiar for my mod (DrugWars)

However, there is a significant flaw in it: The use of search engine for the answers. This is the reason that I did not enter the competition. I would have felt like I am stealing the games from you. I could have also done it without a search engine, but I know little to nothing about gettisburg, let alone your mod (but now that I have seen it , I must admit it looks pretty darn impressive)...

Any google search with the right keywords could turn up the answers to even some of the personal trivia questions.

If you are going to give the games out to the one with the highest score (and not the one with a specificly set score), cheating would not hurt you (because you would be giving the game out anyway), but it would be unfair anyway...

In any case, your mod is looking pretty sweet ;)
