Sorry, but now you need to wait for the next rounds, if you want to pick them. As the last match of this round is occurring, I’m preparing the next blog, with Rounds 2-7.

Amazed that the Parana basin is so big - looks about the same size as the Amazon's.

Ah but that doesn't match the figures in your table - maybe your boundary line is in the wrong place? Not that it's a problem for the quiz.

Actually, this Paraná Basin is the Río de La Plata Basin, the unite Paraná Basin, and Uruguay Basin. Although both names can be acceptable type-ins, this should be corrected.

Nice quiz, seeing the basins visualized like that was definitely interesting. Minor observation: Lake Baikal's outflow is the Angara, which flows into the Yenisey, so the area that drains into Lake Baikal (basins of Selenge, Barguzin etc.) should be included for Yenisey.

I'm aware of this, but the quiz needs to be updated as the borders of the basins aren't incredibly accurate, and I took on this project close to when I started making eggs, so it wasn't destined to look very nice :)
