Rule the '90s - A National Geographic Game

During the last couple of nights I have enjoyed watching The '90s mini-series on the National Geographic Channel. It isn't the deepest look at events of the 1990s in the United States, but it is a nice overview of political, economic, and social themes of the decade. So far the series has featured a nice blend of hard news (Desert Storm) with softer stories (remember Vanilla Ice?).

Rule the '90s is one of the online complements to the television show. Rule the '90s is an online trivia game about news and culture in the United States in the 1990's. The game has four challenges (three are available now, one more will be available tonight). Each challenge has thirty multiple choice questions about people and events of the 1990's. You can refresh your memory before taking the challenge by reviewing facts in Explore the '90s.
