Don't know if the trivia contest is going anywhere, but here's a warm-up question for ya:

- What are the names of the Rockem-Sockem Robots ?

And let's just say that the honor system prevents using Google or Wiki.

I didn't know that they had names. Give me zero points on that one. I remember that toy well from childhood. I never had one myself, but lots of my friends did. As I recall, I never got the feel of that game, so usually lost.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I never had one as a kid either.

But I found a "Terminator" version some years ago, which my wife threw out,
much to my dismay.

But one of her friends got me a regular Rockem-Sockem game for a birthday,
which I think is a cool thing to have in the den.

I think one is Duke, but I'm not sure, and have no idea of the other.

I must be getting old... I either can't remember these robots or I never heard of them in the first place.

Red Rocket and Blue Bomber.

Frighteningly, I actually knew this. I'm a dork.

I never had one myself but I noticed on my friends one head was a bit looser than the other and that was my side all the time.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.

Always wanted them for Christmas when I was a kid. I must not have shut up about it, because my wife bought them for me on my 45th birthday!

And I still didn't know their names...

In the board game Clue, what was the victim's name?

I wouldn't have remembered from the actual board game, but I know the answer because I have seen the DVD of the film a zillion times. Won't spoil the trivia for others.
