Trivia Game: How Well Do You Know Your Rangers?

I asked the Mods if I can put this up as a way to have some fun and kill some time in the offseason, and because it's Ranger's-themed.

If you guys don't want it up then you can take it down.

How To Play:
  • I will start by giving 1 or 2 clues about a past or present Rangers player.
  • Each player that needs to be solved consists of 1 round.
  • Posters may venture a guess at any time of the round (even after the first round) but be advised that posters are only allowed 1 guess per round.
  • The first poster to guess the player of that round wins and I will keep a running scoreboard in this post to see at the end of the game who has the most correct answers.
  • Anyone can play and you don't have to sign up for anything.

Let me give one example:

I would start off with a clue or two.

Clue 1: He was a left-handed shot

Clue 2: He played defense during the 90's and early 2000's

Clue 3: He wore number 2

Players can guess at any time, but can only guess once per round.



HF Username Round Wins
Brian Boyle/Steven Mastrosimone 5
nyr2k2 3
Purple McIlwraath 3
t3hg00se 2
Ih8theislanders 2
NYRFAN218 2
kaneone 2
Puckface NYR 1
17futurecap 1
Muh 1
Gravey94 1
hpNYR 1
gravytrain6t 1

Practice Round

We will start it off pretty easy.

Clue 1: This man was integral to the Rangers 1994 Cup Run.

Next clue coming later.

EDIT - LOL I was guessing on the fake example...

For this one I'm gonna throw a wildcard out there and guess Sergei Zubov...he only led the team in regular season points that year

Ok I am actually going to use this as an example because other clues are going to be more based on facts than feelings.

The answer I was looking for (thinking of the SCF more specifically) was Mike Richter.

More clues would have later come like he wore number 35, played goal, etc.

But this was to open to interpretation, other rounds will be based on facts.

You guys get the idea though.

So let's restart it up.

Clue 1: This Ranger was a post-millennium (after the year 200) player who tallied just over 300 points for the broadway blueshirts.

Does the winner ask the next question?

Also, hopefully this gets stickied. Good way to help the boring off-season.

I didn't think about that.

I was thinking maybe we could run it where I would ask the questions for maybe like 10-20 rounds and then maybe we could switch to the previous round winner asking the question, is that fair?

Good luck with this one, I decided to ramp up the difficulty like 10 times

Clue 1: This Ranger holds the record for highest single-season shooting percentage at 29.8%.

Is cheating allowed? If so, I still can't find the answer.
