Tientsin is now called Tianjin. Shijiazhuang should be Shi-jia-zhuang. Lianyungang should be Lian-yun-gang.

Great quiz! I think I got them in the end, but that still only comes to 93/100 - not sure what I'm missing. Anyhow, this is a really good way of learning some of the lesser-known names.

Chinese people must be awesome at scrabble. I can never think of X, J, Z, or Q words and they have them everywhere.

But they would play Scrabble with Chinese characters of course. Imagine how many tiles they would need.

You would need at least ten thousand Scrabble tiles if you wanted to have a tile for each character, and that's a bit much to fit in a standard Scrabble box.

I've said it before, but just have people read these off letter by letter at 20 feet at the eye doctor's. You'll know if their eyes are good because guessing is out the window.
