Play A Random Geography Quizzes Quiz

Directions

SEE RULES BELOW…use LOWER CASE and NO PUNCTUATION to name as many of the top 50 largest cities by state (incl towns except NY, CDP’s in HI, MI charter townships, village, etc) before time runs out.

FavoriteLoadingFavorite this Quiz! RULES: You start with only 5 minutes. A state will appear initially – name the largest city from that state you can, then the state will change after an answer and you do the same for the next state that shows up. You get 5 SECONDS EXTRA TIME each time you extend the top cities in a row for each state you complete. When you name the largest city of a state you will get 5 seconds, when you complete the top 2 you get 5 seconds, etc. The bottom left grid shows the top N cities you have for that state..i.e. if there’s a “4” you have the top 4 cities. After every answer for a state the quiz will choose a state at random with weighting (SEE NOTE BELOW ON HOW – COULD be the same state) and the top 50 will display. Cities of the same name in other states WILL NOT fill in – only ONE ANSWER for that state will fill in at a time. IF TWO CITIES have the same name in that state, you will ONLY have the one with higher population answered for your guess. You have to move very fast at first to get the top cities, so you can start getting more bonus time to think about the tougher ones. YOU CAN TYPE ‘next’ to skip a state if you are stumped on it – HOWEVER you are docked 15 seconds, and could possibly get the same state chosen randomly on the next turn. NOTE: States are chosen at random based on a random number PROPORTIONAL to the population of unguessed cities left in that state, so a state with total pop of unguessed cities of 2M is twice as likely as one of 1M of being selected. EXAMPLE: let’s say you name the 2nd biggest city for a state your first turn on it…you get NO bonus time. Second time on it you get the top city – you then get 5 bonus seconds. If you had gotten the top city first and then the 2nd biggest you would have gotten 10 (5 + 5) total seconds of bonus time. YOU MUST THINK VERY QUICKLY AT FIRST, and know your largest cities by state..that is the goal of this quiz.

    Such BS when I type next to skip New Hampshire, then it brings up New Hampshire again. I know that’s really hard to programs but that is super annoying and cheap

    Union comes up before Union City regardless of what I do. Any good way to fix this?

    Is there a way to enter Bentonville before Benton, etc?

      you could do ‘Bentoville’ then add the n in the middle after

    Is there a way to separate this quiz out, like you did with the counties quiz, so I can do one state at a time? Best regards,
