I think you intended to write "heering". The ceremonious horde of the letter will be respected here. Never will I use the letter in question--give them completely to the stupendous city for Red Heroes!

All the really obscure ones were popping to the fore of my brain as well, for some reason. Got Palikir instead of Paris, Bujumbura instead of Beijing, etc.

I doubt that that statement is true, Kal. Bujumbura hasn't been the capital of Burundi for a while and isn't in this quiz.... You may have thought of it, but you'd still have to type something else to actually get B.

Precisely; the capital of Burundi is Gitega

I realized this the moment I hit submit, thought about editing the comment, then decided to leave it to see how long it would take someone to catch it. Apparently less than a day. Anyway, it was just an example. I don't remember exactly which ones I typed.

It might have been accepted. I accidently typed Astana and got Nur-Sultan.

For some reason, all the "stan" capitals came to mind. Astana got me N, Ashgabat got me A, then Bishkek, Dushanbe, Islamabad, Kabul, and Tashkent. I didn't even do it consciously.

Great quiz!

One question though, why is there no Cotonou?

+1
Level 54
Feb 24, 2021
Because it isn't the official capital, just the economic capital of Benin, although it does have more government buildings than Porto-Novo, which only has the National Legislature.

Sigh... it IS an official country. But it is NOT a sovereign country. Which this site uses as a standard for all their quizzes.

(unless mentioned otherwise, like with a caveat "includes non sovereign countries")

It's still the capital of Armenia, but I usually see it spelled with a Y. According to Wikipedia the city is sometimes called Erevan, but on Jetpunk the official name is Yerevan.

Chisinau, with two I’s, will work, but not Chisnau. On JetPunk, you never have to type in accents.
