The quiz is amazing! I almost laughed out loud at the rodent one. And I thought of Rambo rather than the more general word. You've a got a very deserved nomination from me. :)

Same. I think I would've gotten there with another minute or so to think. I kept repeating "Rambosaw" with the emphasis on different syllables to see if I was missing something.

Naypyidaw sounds like 'neigh-pee-door', so it could be something like a door with a horse's head, and urinating 🤪

Bandar Seri Begawan could be a band, an 'R', a sari, a beggar, and a '1'.

My another new favourite quiz. The artwork is amazing (●♡∀♡) though it must have been very difficult to think about it and draw. We appreciate your hardwork and are grateful for providing us with such an amazing quiz to experience which would make us think outside box merely not just memorising all the Capitals won't work. Thanks a lot (。•̀ᴗ-)✧ and keep it up
