Downtown Fort Worth Pick Six GameTwelve years online deserves the unveiling of a new game, doesn’t it?  Presenting our new Pick Six game!   You are given one of three categories, “Street Names in Downtown Fort Worth”, “Downtown Restaurants of the Past”, and “Television Shows or Movies Filmed in Downtown” — chosen at random when the game loads, though periodically we will be adding new categories to the game.  You are then presented with a list of twelve items, six of which fit the category and six which do not.  You have sixty seconds to identify which are the correct six by clicking on the windows of your answers.  When you’ve selected your six choices, hit the red button to see how many of your six you have correct.  If you have less than six, you can change your answers but you must turn a window off before turning another one on. How well are you at downtown Fort Worth trivia?  Select the game off of the right-side navigation to find out!
