Government and Politics: Governor's Game
The game below uses pictures and information on 18 Newfoundland Governor's. At this time, there
are no individual articles on these Governor's so we have prepared a
Faces and Facts sheet to help you with the
game. Biographies of the Governor's used in this game, along with many others, are currently being
written and will soon be available in the 'Government and Politics' section of our web site.
