The epic of Chicago is the story of the emergence of modern America. Here, witness Chicago’s growth from a desolate fur-trading post in the 1830s to one of the world’s most explosively alive cities by 1900.

Donald Miller’s powerful narrative embraces it all: Chicago’s wild beginnings, its reckless growth, its natural calamities (especially the Great Fire of 1871), its raucous politics, its empire-building businessmen, its world-transforming architecture, its rich mix of cultures, its community of young writers and journalists, and its staggering engineering projects—which included the reversal of the Chicago River and raising the entire city from prairie mud to save it from devastating cholera epidemics. The saga of Chicago’s unresolved struggle between order and freedom, growth and control, capitalism and community, remains instructive for our time, as we seek ways to build and maintain cities that retain their humanity without losing their energy. City of the Century throbs with the pulse of the great city it brilliantly brings to life.

    “4077: An Unofficial M*A*S*H Trivia Game” Now Available

    Back on September 17th, 1972 a new TV show debuted, that tv show is called M*A*S*H. It has now been 50 years since it initially debuted. At the time nobody would have been able to predict just how much of an impact the show would have, not just immediately, but also many years into the future.

    The final episode of M*A*S*H, “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen“, was the most watched finale of any TV series in history, with 105 million viewers. There are many people, including those who were not around when the show was first on the air, who love the show.

    To help commemorate the 50th anniversary, I am announcing the availability of a new game called, “4077: An Unofficial M*A*S*H Trivia Game“. There are two versions, one on the web, and companion iOS app. The web version is available at https://mashtivia.app.

    There are four different game modes.

    • Easy – 30 second timer with 5 questions per round and up to 3 wrong answers per round
    • Medium – 20 second timer with 7 questions per round and up to 2 wrong answers per round.
    • Hard – 15 second timer with 10 questions per round and up to 2 wrong answers per round.
    • R&R – No timer, 5 questions per round. Play as many rounds as you would like.

    The questions for the game are original and come from re-watching the actual episodes and are not from any website or book. Some of the questions are going to be easy to answer while others will be significantly more difficult.

    The first release has questions only from the first season of the show. There are 579 questions over the 24 episodes. More questions will be added over time as seasons are completed.

    There are no ads in the game, it is merely designed to pay homage to a timeless show. If you play the game and enjoy it, feel free to share it with others.
