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.

If your Internet browser is included in the following list, please visit the page - Additional Instructions - before playing the game.

  • Netscape Navigator 2.0, Netscape Navigator 2.01, Navigator Netscape 2.02
  • Internet Explorer 3.0, Internet Explorer 3.01, Internet Explorer 3.02

If you are unsure as to what version browser you are using try selecting About from the Help menu.

Playing Instructions:

This is a game of identification. There are 18 tiles with 3 different point values (100, 200, 300) and for each there is a Governor to identify.

Click on a tile and it will show you a picture and clue for a particular Governor. You must then select the name of that Governor from a drop-down list and submit your answer. Once submitted, the game will tell you if you are right or wrong and display the answer. You then click the continue button to return to the tiles so you may select another.

Once you finish the game you have the option to try again, in which case the placement of Governor's are randomized and do not appear behind the same tiles. Score is kept in the lower left-hand corner and remember to read the Fact Sheet before playing the game.



Please Note:

The game loads necessary sound effects as they are needed. If you notice a momentary pause, it merely means that the game is loading one of the small sound files. (Sound files range from 1-4 Kb in size).
