Solution to Trivia Round

by Charles Steinhardt

Answer: MARBLE

Each sentence is a sentence from the Fact Sphere (Portal 2), with one word or short phrase replaced. For each, determine if the original fact is true. If true, take the first letter of the original word - otherwise, take the first letter of the new word. This spells SPHERE LOST WHEN CRAZY, which clues the answer, MARBLE. (If you read down the column of wrong letters, you read USE START OF OTHER WORD.)
