I like the quiz, but many of these are not cities, and including towns makes it very difficult.

Also, why the distinction with British Overseas Territories? Why no Bermuda, Anguilla or Montserrat?

In fact, since QE2's jubilee this year, extra cities were added to the official list, including Stanley in the Falklands and Jamestown in St Helena.

You could edit the title of the quiz, or do one with just official cities.

I agree non city places is very difficult
