This reminded me of a skit Johnny Carson & Betty White did on the Tonight Show years ago showing what Tarzan & Jane's life might have been like after years of marriage...

Jane: What have you accomplished today?

Tarzan: Tarzan go on hunt today with native warriors: Watusi, Maasai,...

Jane: (interrupting) Ubangi?

Tarzan: You betcha!

Then he grabbed her and tried to kiss her.

Congrats on the feature! Great quiz and map, but one of those quizzes I can't help but feel frustrated by. I missed a few pretty obvious ones (Po, Elbe, Orinoco) and others I could've gotten had I guessed more countries (Senegal, Paraguay). Also, makes me feel a bit embarrassed that I don't know more rivers. This is a quiz I'll definitely come back to in the future!

Agreed, some names are difficult if you're not a native english speaker. I failed at spelling Saint Lawrence (Sankt Lorenz in german).

It's a lot easyer for all rivers that are most commonly known by their native name, unless they are as long as Brahmaputra or some others here...

Colors and US states seem to be a good tip for some random hits, when you run out of names you know.

You should accept Outaouais for the Ottawa river, its his name in french and thus how it's called in Quebec (it's half in Quebec and half in Ontario, so...)

Great quizz! Please accept the Outaouais version for Ottawa and also Saint-Laurent for Saint-Lawrence. This is how we spell it in Frenche, the local language here in Québec. Thank you! ⚜️
