I know this is a super unoriginal/bland idea for a quiz but I made this quiz 4 years ago and just updated it with new data.

Good quiz, you chose a nice shade of complimentary grey for the states without qualifying cities. It makes the map look really clean. #DDDDDD? Anyways, I enjoyed taking this and only missed Stockton and Melbourne.
