Directions

You begin with 10 minutes.¬†One of the 50 largest World cities that is NOT a country capital AND is one of the top 3 largest non-capital cities in a country (so no more than 3 cities per country) will appear – name the country whose capital is among the 10 closest country capitals to that city, trying to get the closest and accumulating points. Shortened abbreviations you can use include: ‘CAR’, ‘Congo’, ‘DRC’, ‘UAE’, ‘UK.’ (with the period so as not to answer for Ukraine), and ‘US’, some others will fill in early so you don’t have to type longer country names. ALSO NOTE: for Niger and Dominica type a ‘.’ after the country name to submit it, to prevent answering them for Nigeria and Dominican Rep..i.e. ‘niger.’ SEE POINTS NOTES BELOW.

    You start with 10 minutes, but if you do well, you’ll be here 3 hours.

      Yes, at first you think you’re in for a “regular” quiz but soon you find yourself in a marathon. Quite misleading… :) Thank goodness for the pause button.
