'Blood Oath' Contest!

Jason’s ‘Blood Oath’ Contest

1. Who was the only President to pardon a “blood-sucker”?
2. Name at least three “traditional” ways to kill a vampire.
3. Which President had the nickname “Old Hickory”?
4. Into which creatures can a vampire turn? Name at least two.
5. Name the sixth and ninth Presidents of The United States.
6. What sadistic, torturous real-life leader was known as the first living “vampire”?
7. Name at least three ‘traditional’ ways to protect yourself from vampires.
8. President Obama is our 44th President. There have been, however, only been 43 men that actually held that position. What is the discrepancy?
9. According to this fantastic Biblical tale, whose wife is considered the first female vampire?
10. Eleven Presidents have had unsuccessful attempts made on their life. Name four.

How many words can you make from the word “Transylvania”?
Google or DRAW me a picture of what your version of a vampire looks like.


The winner will be the person who gets the most questions correct and has the most words created out of “Transylvania”. If you have all the questions correct but have fewer words than someone else, you lose. If you have a lot of words but fewer correct questions than someone else, you lose. The winner will be the person that has the most words AND correct answers. In the unlikely event of a tie, both winners will receive a copy of ‘Blood Oath’ by Chris Farnsworth.
