Geography Snap Updates
First published: Monday November 21st, 2022
After two years of existence, and almost 1 million plays (currently 989k), Geography Snap finally sees its biggest ever update!
First of all, there are not one - but TWO - new categories to play with:
Flag-Shapes and Biggest Cities
These two were chosen because I wanted one picture type, and one text type, and they both have somewhat unique and well-defined answers for each country. Biggest cities uses this quiz by the way: Biggest Cities in Every Country.
Also, with the introduction of two new categories, the number of possible game mode combinations has sky-rocketed from just 15, to now 63!
Another optimization made was to improve the performance of the leaderboards. Previously, it was starting to get slow to display these, and now it is much faster, due to some behind-the-scenes optimizations!
Improved Friends Stats
Previously, for those users with friends that played lots of Geography Snap, "Friends Stats" was becoming almost unusable. Well, now, thanks to some improvements on the back-end of how this table works, the results are much faster as you only ever see the first 500, depending on your sort and filtering.
As a small aside, before the new categories were added, here is the current Top 20, by games played!
