Still in play (Potpourri):

For two points, name all the big cats. (Note that any inaccuracy will result in your answer being considered incorrect.)

For three points, what monarch provided cedar for King Solomon's Temple building project? For four more points, over what city did he rule?

For four points, what team won what is considered the first football game?

For five points each, name the Sword Rulers from Michael Moorcock's Corum trilogy. For ten points, name the only female Lord of Law ever mentioned.

You are correct, and I accidentally re-posted the question after I'd answered it.

So, technically, I should award you the points.

Fortunately, I'm not very technical. :tomato:

Come on. You should know all the big cats.

Before you provided the answer to the small cats question, I would have included cheetah in the list.

Okay, I'll give it a shot.

Lions and tigers and bears... Oh... wrong list. ;)

Again...

Lions, tigers, and jaguars?

Potpourri:

For three points, what monarch provided cedar for King Solomon's Temple building project? For four more points, over what city did he rule?

Hiram of Tyre

For four points, what team won what is considered the first football game?

Rutgers defeated Princeton

For five points each, name the Sword Rulers from Michael Moorcock's Corum trilogy. For ten points, name the only female Lord of Law ever mentioned.

Arioch, Xiombarg and Mabelode the Faceless are the three Sword Rulers.

Miggea remains the only female Lord of Law Moorcock has given a name. (There are Arkyn and Donblas the Justice Maker, as well, off the top of my head.)

That's a tough choice to make. But I'll try to give you an answer in the next couple of days.

And thank you.
