Yes, I was thinking about that while making it. If I were to do a randomized version, I would add more cities in.

Regarding France, you misspelled Limoges as "Limonges", Chambéry as "Chamberly", and also Reims is out of place: it should be in the north east, not south east.

Great quiz :D

I wanted to get as many as I could so I ended up taking it untimed. I ended up getting exactly 800 which I'm pretty proud of though I missed some pretty obvious ones like Manchester and Honolulu. But I gotta ask you why you chose Viborg in Denmark it's only like the 20th biggest city?

+2
Level 68
Jun 6, 2020
I chose some cities because they would be harder than others, I didn't want to make every city on the quiz predictable. I made sure to get all of the really necessary places on the quiz, with some curveballs. This is the case with Viborg, but I thought it was a little more well known than other Danish cities.

You spelled Atyrau (Kazakhstan), Zamboanga (Philippines), Concepcion (Chile) and Peshawar (Pakistan) wrong.

Agreed. I typed in "Peshawar" about 5 or 6 times, pointing and yelling at the screen: "But it's right there!!!"

I feel like Turkmenbashi should be allowed as an alternate spelling of Turkmenbasy considering that's how it appears on Google Maps and lots of other English-speaking sites

The city in Chile is Concepción, not Conception.

707. Most guessed one I missed was Canberra, but I chalk that up to almost being out of time when I got to Australia.

Good quiz, but there are a few errors: -

1. Zamboangna should be Zamboanga

2. Daejon should be Daejeon

3. Atryau should be Atyrau

4. Turkmenbasy should be Turkmenbashi

5. Peshanwar should be Peshawar

6. Conception should be Concepcion

7. Marrakesh should be Marrakech

Also, Samarkand is often spelt as Samarqand

This must have taken ages to create. Therefore I hate to criticise the map but there do seem to be a number of inaccuracies in placement of the dots. For example (I'll stick to the country of my birth), Brighton appears to be inland. So does Cardiff. London seems to be detached from the Thames estuary. Bradford has moved to due North of Manchester whilst Coventry and Birmingham are the wrong way round.

Great quiz, but the locations of many dots on the map are quite odd. For example in Germany: The dot of Münster is placed way too far north (in a location where the towns of Vechta or Wildeshausen are). The same with the dot of Bielefeld (the dot is at the location of the town of Nienburg). And there are many more examples.

The dot for Charleroi, Belgium is in the wrong place.

It must be placed more to the west, straight under Brussels.

Great idea!

but still some small details need to be fixed:

the dot for Takamatsu is missing

a lot of german cities are placed falseley

e.g. Nurnberg

bielefeld

munster

Sevastopol, Ukraine is misspelled as "Sevestopol"

Rostov, Russia is in the complete wrong spot

Poltava, Ukraine is misspelled as "Polvata"

Hulunbeier, China should have the type-in "Hulunbuir"

Cotabato, Philippines is missing its black outline

Zhangzhou, China has the same position as Zhengzhou
