Great quiz! Note that Porto-Novo and Cotonou are so close that they can't both be seen without zooming in. This might also be the case in a couple other locations. Can this be improved?

Great quiz, I like this style as it really helps to learn the capitals and indeed countries. It took me 5 or 6 attempts to get a perfect score and I'm sure I can take it as many times again before I get another perfect score

Both are valid capitals of Benin and both were possible to receive on this quiz, however I have combined them into a single answer as mentioned above.
