Thanks for translating this gem! I am a little sad that most of the Jetpunk quizzes use the mega-agglomeration that is the Rhine-Ruhr area, quizzes like this one are the best way to learn these otherwise forgotten about German cities on Jetpunk :)

Yeah I would also like to be able to make use of my knowledge on these cities. I love their names: Gelsenkirchen = Mosquitochurches, Essen = Eating or the river Lippe = Lip XD

I'm probably going to make a similar quiz on the even larger Rhine-Ruhr Agglomeration, thus including on of my favourite City names: Mönchengladbach.
