Double face palm. Did the entire quiz and couldn't understand why you wouldn't take Nottingham for the English City on the Trent. Despite having got most of the answers it didn't dawn on me that they all started with the letter "S" and it was an "S" themed quiz.

Hard to be as switched on as me!

Ha! I often find myself using the rules of the previous quiz on the current one (with the inevitably bad results).

Wow...a lot of people know the German word for street

A lot of people probably know the word "street" in a few languages. I don't speak French but I know "rue" for example.

Could you add more spelling options for the cathedrals? Italian ones in Italian for instance.

How about changing the language question into more geographical one? Such as "Historical region in Poland and Czech Republic" (answer: Silesia). Or "Capital of Crimea" (answer: Simferopol). Or maybe "The largest city on the Crimean Peninsula" (Sevastopol)

And perhaps include less UK-related questions : 7 out of 22 are about the UK here...

Come on, UK shouldn't represent a third of a European Geography quiz for such a (relatively) tiny island !

It is in the top 10 of europe's biggest countries, so relatively, it isnt that small (especially for an island, it is the in the top 10 biggest islands worldwide).

^But Germany, which is larger, more populous and has a bigger economy than the UK is represented by only 2 questions in the quiz. Furthermore, many of the UK-related questions are somewhat obscure, while there could be far more internationally famous answers from the rest of Europe. There does seem to be a bias, even though I'm personally fine with it.

This is an English quiz on English JetPunk. If this were a German quiz on German JetPunk one would except there to be more German representation.

Considering the biggest country in Europe both by area and by population got only 1 question... Seems questions are quite a bit biased.

@ relessness or QM, whatever you prefer.

Could you try one with no UK-related questions, as an experiment?

Just to see if you get any complaints - my guess is that you would....

So this quiz is about Europe which has 45 countries. Yet 7 questions of the 22 are about the UK

Somehow thought of Siena even though I'm not familiar with it but didn't try it. I've been to Split so I guessed it but I didn't realize it was the 2nd largest city in Croatia, interesting
