Doesn't appear to accept "Bandar Seri" as a type in for Bandar Seri Begawan, as most Jetpunk quizzes do.

Rhodes! I think I remember seeing those deer when I was there. That spot is one of the possible locations of the Colossus of Rhodes.

Some of these are trick questions, like all the ones in southeast Asia, and then others are just obvious, like the South Island. Also, I recommend making this quiz maybe a minute longer.

Crikey that was tough. It's good to be completely stumped occasionally.

For some reason I had in my head the Aleutian Islands were the Andaman Islands.... it was really stumping me!

Great quiz, really appreciate that both Nuuk and Torshavn have been accepted as capitals (both are capitals of Danish territories, Greenland and Faroe Islands, respectively).

How come Nuuk turns into Rejkyavik when they are completely different cities and not even part of the same country?

Because it's not a country capital, so Reykjavik is the correct answer, but Jerry was lenient here so let you have Nuuk anyway, just didn't show it as the answer

I typed Nuuk in on a whim and was pleasantly surprised it was accepted. I thought Jetpunk didn't acknowledge Greenland ;-)

Mentally, I've always imagined Buenos Aires being south of Montevideo. I pulled up Google Maps, turns out Montevideo is almost a straight shot east and just barely stretching farther south.

Great quiz, you really have to think about where those islands are in relation to the rest of the world, different than any other I've taken
