Round Two - Triva Game

Posted January 18, 2008

The journey has only begun. We still have about three quarters of the state to cover in our Tar Heel Trivia game. We started Thursday with a question that covered three of NC's 100 counties. Once a question is answered a blogger will pose another question about another county until all 100 counties are mentioned.

Thursday the following counties were included in the shower of excellent questions and answers about NC: Alamance, Ashe, Avery, Beaufort, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Duplin, Forsyth, Guilford, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Lincoln, Martin Mitchell, Orange, Pamlico, Perquimans, Randolph, Transylvania, Wake, Watauga and Yancey.

How many more counties can we cover today?

Okay, I will kick off today's round of questions off with a double dose.

What is NC's most populous county and what is the largest county in terms of land mass?
