First choose a level by typing ‘beg’, ‘int’, ‘adv’ or ‘exp’ – beginner is 25,000,000, intermediate is 10,000,000, advanced is 5,000,000 and expert 1,000,000. Then, begin naming cities. All cities of 50K+ population starting with the city you chose and moving outward will begin filling in until you’ve hit a total population equal to or greater than your chosen level’s threshold. For example, if you choose ‘beg’ – the threshold is 10 million. If you choose ‘baghdad’, then Baghdad will fill in and because its population is under 10 million, successive cities moving outward from Baghdad will fill in until the total population reaches at least 10 million. If you chose Shanghai, only it would fill in as its population already meets your threshold.
hugequiz Premium members will see the 25 largest missed cities at the end of the quiz as large, purple markers – you can mouseover them to see city details for each.
Premium members can now also play a 3-hour time limit ‘custom’ coverage quiz of any population from 50,000 to 10,000,000, simply enter the population followed by a ‘.’ instead of choosing from one of the four levels, i.e. ‘750000.’ Quiz score is not recorded for the custom coverage option.
