Overall, outstanding job. Quick issue: "Arabia" does not fill in a part of Saudi Arabia directly below Qatar, which could lead someone (me) to believe that is a different region they need to guess the name of.

Could you make the lines in the ocean more obvious? As someone with less than perfect eyesight, I didn't realize there were even markers until I had to search for the last two I didn't have. I just happened to know the other island regions, and didn't need to zoom in on them.

Cool quiz, even if its a bit subjective. I would get rid of 'the Bush' region, as any Australian will tell you that 'the bush' isn't really a defined geographic place. It's just anywhere that isn't developed and has lots of trees that are generally eucalyptus. Grouping the Daintree rainforest and the Nullarbor in the same ecological region doesn't make much sense. Perhaps add the Great Dividing Range instead.

I second that. 'The bush' is just Australian for 'the forest'

Can confirm because I live in Australia. It is also used in New Zealand in the same way. I would recommend removing it.

Please accept Levant for Fertile Crescent
+1
Level 68
Aug 3, 2021
At first I thougtht that they're not the same thing and Fertile Crescent consists of Levant, Egypt and Mesopotamia.

But then read at Wikipedia, that the term Levant used to mean the entire Eeastern Mediterranean at some point so it could actually work here too, perhaps.

Got Fertile Crescent but first tried the Levant. Tried Hong Kong and Kowloon for Pearl River. Tried South Africa and variations for "Southern Africa." Tried the South, American South, Bible Belt, Sun Belt, and other weirder stuff for "Deep South." Tried Eastern Seaboard for "Mid-Atlantic." Tried Caucuses, Caucusus, Caucasian Mountains, etc, for "Caucasia."

and Kievan Rus just seems really weird to include to me... not really a region... more an archaic confederation of Russian/Slavic states.

Agree with Kal, and would like to add that I'd like to see "South Asia" as a type-in for the India subcontinent (also, just "India" should be a type-in since all of South Asia is considered part of "Greater India"), "Maritime Southeast Asia" for the East Indies, and "Canton" or "Guangzhou" for "Pearl River Delta." It's definitely a good quiz, just a bit arbitrary at times, so I'd really appreciate it if you could add more type-ins!

This quiz is great, but I think some of these places are commonly known by several names, or their names have changed over time, which I found very confusing.

E.g. Fertile Crescent feels very archaic to me, I'd have called that region The Levant (even then a pretty old term).

I would also argue that Scandinavia should be a type in for The Nordics. I've never heard the term The Nordics before, I'd think of it as more an adjective than a noun.

Similarly the Mid-Atlantic states get called a lot of things, I'd argue that Eastern Seaboard is a comparably common name.

Overall great quiz, and a fantastic concept!

It's certainly frustrating when I enter a reasonable answer and it isn't accepted. The topper was when I tried "Occitanie" to find out, after the quiz, that the answer was "Occitania".
