It always seems a crap shoot if a quiz is asking for Astana or Almaty. And I always guess the wrong one first.

Great idea for a quiz. I don't understand the ordering of the answers though. Can they be put in alphabetical order, or under type (e.g. region, city, etc).

You could also say "why not the Aegean Sea, or the Appalachian Mountains, or Andorra, or Armenia, or Azerbaijan, or Austria, or Antigua," or any number of other places. The quiz is perfectly fine as is, with a good mix of easy and harder answers.

Great quiz with much variety (city, country, mountain range, etc...). Would you please consider accepting"Amour" for Amur river. I tried desperately and missed the proper spelling. After all the French do speak best about matters of LOVE :-)

COuld you sort them into groups like seas, peninsulas, cities, etc at the bottom? Would help a lot. Also, maybe accept Almaty for Astana?

How about if you know one you apparently know the other? I bet a lot of people guessed Accra / Abidjan / Abuja.

Astana has recently changed its name though to Nur-Sultan, and it might be better to use Almaty on this quiz instead?

Moi aussi. I know you've been partly resisting changing Astana to Nur-Sultan, but then you should change all references to Tokyo back to Edo, since it was forcibly renamed by a dictator! :)

Skimming the comments, it looks like I'm the only one who didn't realize that white was mountains... I thought it was just a region, like Andalusia or something. I couldn't figure out for the life of me what region was right where the Alps were...
