Fantastic idea! Highlighted some of my misconceptions - such as thinking that that peninsula was called Carpentaria. Don't the Pamirs extend further, into Kyrgyzstan?

A tad more leeway on the spelling for the 26% question.

Hechuan is a district but you have a circle, so I assumed it was a city. I typed Chongqing and Chengdu several times.

This is a most enjoyable quiz, thank you.

Being rather old and slow, not very dextrous with the keyboard and sometimes having to peer to find the blue bits I would love to have a bit more time but realise that would take away the challenge for most Jetpunkers.

I retook the quiz starting halfway through just for fun but wonder if it would be possible to have a 'slow' version? You could put a lower points ceiling on it. I find this a problem with a lot of the longer quizzes.

Thanks anyway, very entertaining.

Both 'Pannonian Alps' and 'Transylvanian Alps' are very commonly used names for the Carpathian Mountains, certainly the former. I'm willing to bet there's a lot of Europeans who know where the Pannonian Alps are, but would have more trouble pointing to the right place on a map if you asked them about the same mountain range by the name 'Carpathian Mountains'.
+1
Level 66
Feb 14, 2022
I'm not an expert in this area, but the Pannonian Alps seems to actually be the basin in which the Carpathian Mountains are located. And the Transylvanian Alps are a mountain range located within the greater Carpathian Mountains.
