The Ultimate Unofficial Chicago Cubs Puzzles & Trivia has puzzles, trivia and a historical look at the world’s most lovable losers, the Chicago Cubs. The Ultimate Unofficial Chicago Cubs Puzzles & Trivia covers the Northsiders from the founding of the team to the start of the upcoming season, from their World Series titles to their recent heartbreaks, and from Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance to Castro-to-DeWitt-to-Lee.
Cubs fans of all ages will be challenged by the 250 trivia questions (broken into 10 categories). Whether the reader grew up in the Ernie Banks age, Ryne Sandberg era or has just begun cheering for the Cubs, there’s plenty to test one’s knowledge and learn interesting tidbits about one of the most storied franchises in professional sports.
In addition, there are Cubs-themed crossword puzzles, ranging in difficulty from an underhand toss to a 100 miles-per-hour fastball. Special word searches, Sudoku, and other unique word and number puzzles will provide entertainment to last longer than back-to-back doubleheaders.
This book provides fun for the whole family and makes a great present for the Cubs fans on everyone’s holiday gift list.
