Man, Trireme reminds me of the Civilization games from the early 90s. Need to go find an emulator to play that one again...

Tributary seems to be an intruder here, it's the only one which does not begin with the prefix meaning "three". Trifecta would be equivalent to "tiercé"? It's not in my dictionary.

But it's not about the "meaning" of the prefix; the quiz asks for those words beginning with "tri". I doesn't even require it to be a prefix technically, although most of the answers are.

I didn't ask it to be removed, I just wanted to mention the fact that it is different from the others.

Should have got triumvirate, but may I suggest triarchy (which I did try) also fits 'group of three leaders' just as well and is just as common?

Can "holy trinity" be accepted?

In the UK, there is no such thing as a trifecta, but there is a tricast (think they may be the same thing?)

Should had "Triforce".

Couldn't a triad be a group of three leaders? And aren't pitchforks and tridents different things? Pitchforks (usually four-pronged) are for hay, tridents for fish.

The spelling of arthropod still needs to be corrected. This might seem like a minor issue, but as a nit-picker I'd like to pick arthropods and not athropods.

Hi QM, nice quiz. Might I be able to suggest to you that here in the UK, a tricast is a certain type of bet whereby you forecast the first three horses (or dogs) in a race.

A polygon describes a shape with 4 or more sides, therefore a triangle isn’t a polygon - “a three sided shape” would work better
