I like that it is hard, it is nice to see a hard quiz people at "jetpunk geography level" on this site. But it is a little bit extreme, 6 cities are here that I haven't heard of in all my life but missing some obvious ones like Hanover, Haarlem or Heihe. I know there isn't as many h's but still this one is by far harder than all other ones. Great quiz still though, keep it up :)

Added Hanover and Honiara now. Wondering whether to include the Hague as well, but not sure whether it starts with 'T' or 'H'.

Herat, Afghanistan maybe?

I'd say it's H, but as EEAA... says, there's also Haarlem (North Holland, Netherlands). Considering it gave the name to a New York neighbourhood it can't be that obscure? (Homs, Huelva, Hargeisa, Hermosillo and Huambo .. never heard of those)

I've definitely heard of Homs, it's been in the news often since the start of the civil war, but am not familiar with the rest of sillie's never-heard-of list, as well.

Never heard of Huelva. got all others. out of the <10%s I think people should at least know Hargeisa being the capital of a potentially new country.

I never that I would hear someone say Heihe is an obvious answer.

Changed it to the one in India because it's the larger and more well known one.

Please accept Hannover with two N:s because English is probably the only language where its written with only one N.

Seriously, I typed it two times and wondered what H-city could possibly be so close to Hannover. I went to Wikipedia and found this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_European_cities_in_different_languages:_E%E2%80%93H

Yes, please accept 'Hannover' I watch the Bundesliga highlights on British TV, and I thought that two Ns was the universal spelling!

I tried Hannover two times as well and then gave up since it didn't work.

Quizmaster asks whether this H Cities quiz and the G version are "too hard to feature"? I'd say "No!" and would put yellow stars on these two - it's great to have quizzes to stretch us ever further! 74 of Jetpunk's featured quizzes score 30% or less, but these G and H Cities quizzes are way easier than all those, currently averaging 40% and 48% respectively.

True, there are much harder quizzes that have been featured, yet apparently these 2 are 'too hard'. I'd say the same thing Jerry said as well

I know it's a bit late, but I wholeheartedly agree with some new answers. After a while it becomes automatic to fill in some answers without even looking at the quiz.

It's hard, but I think there are only four cities that are "too hard" : Huelva, Hermosillo, Hargeisa and Huambo. Why not limit the quiz to 20 answers?

Hargeisa has a population of roughly over a million, and its the capital of a proclaimed unrecognized sovereign state. I'm pretty sure it at least deserves to be on this list.

Why not have "The Hague" replace one of the lesser known ones?
