A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this is Episode 10 of the Dorky, Geeky, Nerdy podcast. That’s right, 10 whole episodes. We made it. For those of you that have been with us since the beginning, thank you for your support. For episode 10, I wanted to do something classic that’s full of geeky trivia. The original Star Wars – Episode Four: A New Hope.
If you’re new or need a refresher on the suggested rules for playing, head over to dorkygeekynerdy.com/rules. From there you can find ways to follow the show on Facebook and Twitter. As always, the game consists of three rounds of ten questions. The rounds are named Dorky, Geeky, and Nerdy, each more difficult than the last.
OK, Red Squadron. Lock S-Foils in attack position and start your run.
