Hello everyone!

I present to you the new format of the 'Country Quiz on a Map' series, inaugurating it with Italy. New countries, as well as updates, should be coming soon.

I made primarily two modifications:

- A more 'mappish' map (new colors, display of mountain/river names).

- The display of hints directly on the image. Indeed, it has always been a bit tricky to switch between questions and the map, and this should solve the problem (unfortunately, due to space constraints, some hints are more detailed in the usual hint boxes).

I hope you'll enjoy this new version, buona fortuna!

Nicely done quiz, I love the map. I have to ask though, is the stadium one intended to be a trick question? Because I typed colosseum expecting that to work considering it basically is a stadium, no?

While the Colosseum is a bigger structure, it could "only" hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Circus Maximus could hold over 150,000 people, making it larger in terms of attendance.

I liked the quiz, but there were a handful of typos that you might want to fix:

Series instead of serie

Roman should be capitalized

There should be two Ws in WWII

Mountain should have a U

Description is spelled with "cr" instead of "ct"

Settlement should have an E after the L

Great quiz! Just two minor comments, that don't detract from the beauty of the quiz. It should technically be "Lorenzo de' Medici" with an apostrophe signifying the elision of the final "i" in "dei". Also, there is a mountain near the border between Liguria and France that doesn't become green when "Alps" is guessed. I kept trying to think of what major mountain was in that area that I was missing :-) Other than that, great work and beautiful quiz!

Also, it's usually spelled "Montecassino" as one word in Italian, but since it doesn't affect the clue, it's not that important.

"Mont Blanc" could be referred to as "Monte Bianco" here, since it's the Italy quiz as opposed to the (just as beautiful) one about France.

Thanks for your comments :)

I usually try to stick to the English names (which correspond to the Wiki page), but you're right about Medici. Monte Bianco was already accepted as a type-in; I changed it to become the main answer.

I really like the new formatting! It looks great! The map is a bit chaotic but I suppose that can't be avoided with the amount of information present. Wonderful quiz, and thank you for fixing the typos!

Small typo, but you have "godess" instead of "goddess" for the Florence art question.

Anyway, good job on the quiz! Love these.

In Italy, the painting under Pieces of art is commonly know just by the name of goddess: "La XXXX di Botticelli". Would you consider the type-in?

Nice game, but you should accept Italian answers too, as you should do for French in France and so on. But the game is very nice, a little too much focused on Tuscany, but we know Americans go there...

Love the quiz, not a big fan of the map design. One major improvement (in my mind) would be colouring map items in the classic Jetpunk green after they've been named. More simplistic marker designs, though not a big deal, would also be appreciated. I initially missed the items that weren't listed on the left and only indicated on the map, partly because I found it difficult to sight-read the map quickly. One last note: The Apennines are also known as the Apennine mountains, so I think it would make sense to allow “apennine” as a type-in option.

I agree, I completely missed the section of neighbouring countries because I was only looking at the map and they weren’t really indicted there, only by their names being missing. I only saw it after the quiz had ended and I scrolled down, I had no idea there were more things under the map
