I also live in Colorado, lived here for 25 years and I only got 10/20. Really ashamed at myself. =(

18/20. Can't believe I forgot Longmont. I'm also really surprised that so few people know Broomfield.

Lived in Colorado for years. Couldn't think of a single Denver suburb. Hey, when you're in Colorado, why hang out in the 'burbs of a big city?

Everwood wasn't on the list. Well, it is a small town, isn't it. (Only got 4/20.)

Wasn't Everwood actually in Utah, though?

I also find your score of 4/20 to be extremely appropriate for a Colorado quiz.

Living in Colorado for 20 years and I got 13. Half or more are suburbs of Denver. My town has 6000 people so I knew we weren't on it!

Maybe they should rename "Castle Rock" to "Casterly Rock". More people would remember them.

What chance do I have? Got the first two. Pity there isn't a Springfield in Colorado, that's always a good bet.

I guess South Park is just too small to make to list?

South Park is a grassland area in the Rocky Mountains, not a city. The biggest city in South Park is Fairplay, with a population of 672.

You could also be thinking of South Park City, which is an old mining town from the gold rush era. It was abandoned and has since been converted into a museum; it is now part of Fairplay.

After living in Colorado for 36 years.. I got all except 2. I missed Loveland as i was actually naming Ski towns; just not the right one. And i missed Lakewood even though im at work in that city at the very moment smh.

Is there a reason that all the other states are getting maps on their largest city quizzes, but Colorado isn't?

Thank you! Looking at it though, Thornton is where Broomfield should be. Thornton should be over more to the east of Westminster.

3:29 to spare (Finished in 0:31)! However, I've lived in Colorado for 16 years and counting so not super impressive/bragworthy I suppose. Though I can see how some Colorado natives/residents might still miss some of the Denver suburbs or some of the "L" towns up north.

Never lived there, but I have family there and it's one of my favorite places in the world. I got all 20, but I'm also into geography and maps and have visited most of these cities, so I guess it helps.

Castle Rock and Parker are towns, not cities. Maybe you should specify in the description that towns are also included?
