I like the quiz and the maps are well-done. Wouldn't it be more fun with yellow boxes? Someone could theoretically just be typing empire names. Also, some more type-ins should be allowed, such as Austrian or Habsburg

The empire is commonly called either Austria-Hungary or the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Austria-Hungary is a combined name for both, like Norway-Sweden, and Austro-Hungarian is describing an empire made up of Austrians and Hungarians. Austria-Hungarian is neither of these, nor is Austro-Hungary.

Hello WolfCam. Thank you for your quiz, it's very interesting. However, I think there's a mistake in Mongol Empire territory in 1294. According to the map, north Vietnam was a part of Mongol Empire, which I think is wrong. I also found some other maps about Mongol Empire and north Vietnam wasn't shown as a part of it. I'm Vietnamese, and I'm proud that our country was one of the countries that defeated Mongol Empire. I don't mean that your map insulted me or anything like that, but I feel a bit disappointed. Well, that's all I want to say. Your quiz is still very amazing, and I appreciate it. If you can spend a little time reading my comment, I'll appreciate that. Thank you. Good luck to you, WolfCam

I think it would be nice to have it in (reversing) order, to get a sense of history. (especially for those who only vaguely know when each empire was, like me).

Plus I agree with the dozens of others too. A yellow box would be better I think.

Edit: also maybe, make some picture less zoomed in ( or even all the same size, I think it would only be a problem for the mali one, but you could use an insert, and most people haven't guessed it anyway. You could do two sizes a big one for those that need the enitre worldmap and a second smaller size. It would literally put things in perspective ;) )
