    Bah!

    I can't get above the rank of Private in the Armchair General game... I always considered myself fairly knowledgeable about history but they really throw some curveballs.

    Anyone else do better?

    Just got to the rank of Colonel with a score of 1811... it appears that the ranks jump from Sergeant to Colonel.

    They've got some real obscure military questions in there.

    Matt O that has all the high scores must be a robot. Either that or he's answered all of them and knows them... you get higher scores for faster answers.

    ROFLMBO!!!

    I got the answers about George Washington right!!! But, alas, I'm still a private.

    What gets me are the obscure questions (at least to me) about Genghis Khan and his battles. And the land mines currently in use in the U.S. Military.

    I'd have to say, off the top of my head, it's the B-2... either that or one of our Aircraft Carriers.

    No, wait... the Missile Defense Shield.
