    i reset the scores and changed this quiz to use great circle flying routes only instead of some driving, as Mapquest was not as good with African driving directions as Google was, and I had to convert the quiz.

    I visited all 54 countries/capitals but my score wasn’t saved. The timer just went on as if I hadn’t finished the quiz yet.

            Still not registering… I can send you a screenshot if you want. Time stops and All Capital Visited! message displayed but score not saved. Let’s see if anyone else plays this quiz…

    Not sure if I’m just doing something wrong, but I’ve ran this twice now and it’s only made it to 53/54 despite my visitation to every capital. It’s all red and connected. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to do something manually to finish the quiz?

      you’re missing either Brazzaville or Kinshasa – again, like Asia, you have to zoom in to see them both.
