The Domain Game bookWith the release of The Domain Game this week, we thought it might be fun to play our own Domain Game and give away a few copies of the book at the same time. Domain Name News will be giving away 1 signed hardback copy of the book every day for the next five days. We’ve already put in our order with directly with the author which means you might be one of the firsts to read it.

The game will be a simple trivia game with questions inspired by the book. You will probably be able to find some of the information online and some might only be available in the book, but could be guessed.

The question for today (Thursday) is : How much money did Frank Schilling use to begin his investment in domain names ? Submit your answer or best guesses and sign-up for our newsletter (not required) here.

(Hint : This is an easy one. It can be found on another popular domain blog.)
