hard, but definitely worth sticking at! i suggest a little more time. also i don’t know if this is just a mobile thing but the clues and the answers are definitely not in alphabetical order - eg theres vancouver, jerusalem, zurich.

This is fun! I think maybe that Dar and Rio are a bit too lenient of type-ins on this one since they're on the tiles provided, anyway, but my score appreciated the help! Also this quiz is WAY better to take on a computer than it is on a smart phone. Nominated.

Slow coach, I finished in 5:58!

I was sure I wasn't going to make it, but it gets easier as you go through it. I was able to use the alphabetical list to work out the starting letters of my final three, which helped a lot.

Superb quiz!

On my mobile the initial grid isn't displayed but turns into a long list. Unlike the divided countries quiz

He means not accepting “Dar” and “Rio” and instead having to type out Dar es Salaam and Rio de Janeiro, respectively.

Nice quiz. Finished the last 2 with 9 seconds left.

Couple minor things...

1. Since it's a puzzle quiz, i would remove "dar" and "rio" as acceptable type ins.

2. unless you want to keep it this way to add a clue, i would suggest having the answer box randomized rather than alphabetical. I was able to get the last 4 by figuring out what it started with because of what was left. It was a nice hint, but i don't know if it defeats the point of the puzzle.
