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'.

In the UK, Moscow isn’t pronounced with a cow sound, it’s like the Co in CostCo, so I flubbed that one

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

The patches on the cow could at least be greener. It just looks like a regular cow.

May 7, 2024
Well it is definitely a green cow (got stuck on greencow cowgreen forever) but it does not look remotely like moss imo. It lacks "texture" needs to be not flat and should be darker green.

I think in the end I got it because I visualised the letters of the word cow, then I suddenly saw/thought of the answer.

same, wasted at least 3 mins on that. before trying army (thought of private, soldier and camouflage too but those seemed unlikely). Never ended up getting it.

Perhaps also because I have never hear the word spoken outloud in english, so the "saw" part didnt trigger anything for me. Everytime I see it written I still hear Warschau in my head ( and thought that actually it was still pronounced close to that in english. something like warshaw. And english war basicly sounds like wor, so another reason it didnt click
