Great Quiz! Just a couple of suggestions

1.Istanbul is too far south, it should be on the strait of Bosphorus.

2. Add Samarkand to this map, as it is a vital city on the road and is well known due to Marco Polo

Otherwise, really Nice! I love the gradient on the map!

I loved this quiz! Good job, but I would change "Cochin" to "Kochi" (the former is the anglicized name, the latter is the local spelling and the present-day official name). You could have the primary answer as "Kochi" and "Cochin" could be an alternate answer. :)

I really love this map!

Also, I noticed on one of Bread's quizzes, you said you were going to do a "Countries of East Asia in 300 BC" quiz. I was thinking about doing a quiz based on this map. As you can see, subject matter is pretty similar, although it's a few decades past 300 BC and also it only focuses on China and not the rest of East Asia. Would you mind if I go ahead and make that quiz? If you think it'd be too similar, I'm honestly fine with not doing it cuz I have plenty of other ideas right now. I just wanted to see what you think so that you didn't think I was trying to copy your quiz LOL

Sure go ahead, the only reason why I wanted to make the 300 BC countries of east asia quiz was to replace my low-quality European Countries in 1890 quiz

Oh, well honestly I think your 1890 Europe map is pretty good.

And you can still go ahead and make a 300 BC Asia map--like I said, for that quiz I'm 1. only focusing on China and 2. focusing on 260 BC NOT 300 BC, so it'd probably look a bit different anyways.

Istanbul is too far south. Other than that, well done.

Nice map, but surprised Samarkand and Buchara aren’t here
