It would be nice to be able to scroll through them or click on them and see which dot is which afterwards too. Like on some of the mapquizzes here. Quizmaster?

If you hover your mouse over the dots you have answered during the quiz the city should appear in the bottom left hand corner below the map. And then when the quiz is over, you should be able to do this for all the answers

Great quiz!

Could even add Bratislava (capital city of Slovakia), and Bari in Italia?

Though there are already so many in Europe!

It's a city near Manchester, I've only heard of it because of a football team (the Bolton Wanderers) that was pretty good back in the day.

True. I work on this site full time and I only scored 26/30. I'd say the average person in the world would get less than 10.

I agree, but the average person on the street isn't that bright. I mean look at our respective political leaders. Who would vote for them? 28/30. One Brazilian city and one Korean city evaded me. I say evaded, but what I mean is, I didn't know them!

Come on - a little bit of spelling leniency on Barranquilla, por favor? At least all 4 combinations of 1 and 2 r's and l's at a minimum.

I second this. I thought there was only one "r" and therefore did not get the correct answer.

The Mississippi effect. All the consonants are double, but you doubt it, so you end up trying something else. My misspelling is "Barranquila" even though it's not pronounced like that thanks to Guayaquil

I only got 11... well atleast I got bologna and bergen, which most people didnt.

But still... the third letterquiz for me, did equally bad at the other two, but actually hadnt heard of all the ones i missed, apart from one or two. With this one I recognised quite a lot of names afterwards

I understand that you can't include every city that starts with the letter B, but consider including Bovenendvankeelafsnysleegte, South Africa. https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q28223174

Wow, creepy name! Slicetopofthroatvoid...

Edit: apparently the top refers to the void and not the throat, not that it makes it sound less grizzly. So it would be more like topofthroatslicingvoid.

Although that, no one calls BH of “Belo”. It’s Belo Horizonte or BH. So for me, it’s not necessary to accept Belo as type-in.
