Dortmund should also be accepted along with Dusseldorf. Impossible to tell one from the other on a map this size

Oh please, require a bit more than just "Dar". Annoying when I am looking at Darwin and then it suddenly steals my answer and I have to restart.

Dusseldorf could be potentially confusing. Both Dortmund and Duisburg could easily be the same dot on a world map.

Great, I spend minutes wondering what was wrong with my spelling of Dnepropetrovsk and it turns out to be Donetsk...

Just curious, what is Des Moines so famous for? I've never heard of it before now, (I live close to the United States).

It's the state capital of Iowa which should make it well known to anyone familiar with USA geography

Are you suggesting that all of the cities on this map are famous? I don't think that's the criteria for inclusion here.

It is the birthplace of Bill Bryson. That's how I learned it - by reading some of his books.

It also has an important role in the US elections, as they are the first place to vote or something like that. (not really sure, am not from the US, please correct me if I'm wrong)

Challenging quiz, good one. Quite a few cities that I've never heard of (such as Dundee, Da Nang and Dongguan). I agree that solely typing in "Dar" should not give you Dar es Salaam, especially considering the fact that the quiz asks for the city of Darwin as well.

Relessness made a change to no longer accept Dar. But in other quizzes, we will continue to accept Dar since people really do call it that.

You gotta be more generous on what you allow for Dar es Salaam. I must have tried a dozen different combinations.

Woohoo. A quiz with Dundee as an answer!

Tough one though. Only got 8, though probably should have got another 8 too.

Delhi is a district. New Delhi is India's capital city that lies within the district of Delhi. Therefore, strictly speaking –– and aren't we all on this site in favor of technicalities –– New Delhi should not be on this quiz, instead appear in a "Cities Beginning with 'N'" quiz.

New Delhi isn't on this quiz, Delhi is. Wikipedia defines Delhi as "a city and a union territory of India," so I think it's safe to call it a city.

I spent a long time trying (and failing) to find the correct spelling of Dnipropetrovsk before realizing it was not the city that was meant.

Düsseldorf is the correct spelling, not Dusseldorf. Alternatively you could also use Duesseldorf, but not Dusseldorf.

I live in the US so I got it, but putting Des Moines seems a bit harsh on a world cities quiz. Then again of the 10 I've missed I think I've heard of one before so go figure.
