Looking great :D

Edit: The outlines of the header cells are still in default blue by the way. This minor issue is also on your other quizzes, but apart from that I really can't say anything negative about this. :)

Glad you like the quiz. Fixed the boxes, surprised that I didn't notice it myself. ;)

This is incredible!! Definitely deserves a feature, and I love some of the more obscure physical geo on here as well

Great quiz! After coming back to it 4 days later I was able to get 146. My one recommendation would be having the red arrows turn green with the answer.

Before I say anything else this quiz is amazing!

Now that being said I have two concerns:

Toronto should be represented by a star since it is the capital of Ontario.

Also, it is sort of misleading having the whole Aleutian Island chain as an answer, the category ‘Island’, led (at least myself) to think I had to name each highlighted island individually. However this can be reconciled by a quick glance at the answer boxes so it’s not really a problem.

Thanks for the feedback! Changed Toronto to a star and added a remark regarding the Aleutian islands to avoid any confusion.

great concept for a quiz totally enjoyed the challenge. I will say I couldn't see the peninsulas at all so I missed most of those. also somehow the map needs to zoom in better for catching items that are on top of each other like new york and Long Island. a bit bummed that Great Smoky was not accepted for national park. mountains and bodies of water were my weakest areas. but happy to get 121 on my first try. a little more time would have been nice too.

Thanks! Gonna accept Great Smoky. I don't have the visibility issues you mention on my screen. The peninsulas are perfectly visible, only when you guess the sea around it the contrast suffers so I might change that.

Couldn't spotlight your top quiz again, but this was an option. Have yet another spotlight!

Thanks a lot once more!! Tbh I actually prefer this one over the world quiz as the outline of the map comes with much greater detail.

Wow. What a great map. I'm a big sucker for these types of quizzes. Did one for the Iberian Peninsula and the ASEAN nations if you're interested :)

Really enjoyed it! (And nominated!)

If you could accept the Strait of Georgia as a type-in for the Salish Sea along with Juan de Fuca, I might enjoy it even more! 😁

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!

Both of these constitute the Salish Sea so in my view it wouldn't be completely accurate if these are accepted as well.
