Adapted from Kerry Blue Notes, the club publication of the KBTC of Canada

Many of you, I'm sure, have watched the game show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" on ABC. Here is your opportunity to test your Kerry knowledge. The questions get progressively harder.

You have three life lines. Clicking on LIFE LINE takes you to a page in the KBT web site where the k-answer is buried. When you want to continue with the game, click on BACK in your browser window. Not all questions have LIFE LINES.

Good Luck!
