    Literary Answers and Questions Game

    OK, here is a game quite similar to the Answer and Questions game we have been playing... but this time we will give answers and questions related to English and Literature (thought it might be suitable since we are on a Literature Forum! ).

    A: 26
    Q: How many letters are there in English language?

    A: A geisha.
    Q: About whose memories did Arthur Golden write about? (Memoirs of a Geisha)

    Please remember that we are here to play a game and avoid from asking questions which are too obscure or irrelevant to the subject (Questions which are not related will be deleted) as we have other games for this purpose.

    Thank you and happy gaming!


    Here is the first answer:

    Winesburg.
