I agree with others. This needs WAY more time. I did not stop and think very much at all, and I had all of Africa remaining. If you finished in time, great for you; clearly you are fast at typing. Those of us that are not as fast should have enough time to type our answers. Otherwise, title should be changed to indicate the speed necessary. Great quiz besides the time given.

Been coming back to this quiz for a few years now to see if I can get faster times, I think its a great quiz and one that should and could be up there with the generic countries of the world and the US states. If the map of the US would align with the map underneath it and if some of the capitals were updated like Burundi's going to Gitega, apart from that I think this deserves all the nominations in the world as its one for the geo-veterans.

Cotonou was sneaky. I had done Porto-Novo. Got to the end and had 1 missing. Zoomed in all over the map and couldn't find the missing one as Porto-Novo completely covered it! Suddenly came to me.

Great quiz though, now the time is increased.

I was right there with you. I scrolled down to look at the list and noticed it was a "C" country or capital missing and then it clicked and I got Cotonou.

Level 86
Mar 10, 2023
This was an awesome quiz, but I had the same issues. I didn't think of Cotonou while looking at the list, and had a hard time seeing the circle on the map. The combination made finding that last spot challenging. I would recommend shrinking the circles when zoomed in if possible. That would help with identifying locations in the dense areas.

Whew! 100%, time used: 25:35

That was a lot of work. I only forgot Annapolis, Maryland in the US (my own country, but it's crowded in that region).

One tip: do all the small countries/capitals first, so as to not forget them (Vatican City, San Marino, etc). Focusing on the ones that are difficult to see on the map helps, since you can't ignore the big ones.

I do not understand why you have to also type Cotonou for Benin, while the capital city is Porto Novo

Dec 27, 2023
After learning all the countries, capitals, states, etc over 2 years ago now with some rehearsal since, I returned to this quiz.

I find if you want to complete the quiz at the hardest difficulty, don't use the map (zoom in to the bottom left corner).

I completed the quiz with 100% after 21 minutes 15 seconds with no map or using the answer chart.
