Europe 50K+ Cities Proximity Blackout


The object of this quiz is to name close pairs of 50K+ cities for the two European countries represented in each cell. For example, if the top column has ‘France’ and the cell shows ‘UK’ you are trying to name the pair of 50K+ population cities (one in France and one in the UK) which are the closest. Enter guesses by typing the city names in either order followed by a ‘.’ to submit the answer. Columns and cells are randomly chosen each time.

Example: to enter ‘London’ and ‘Paris’ for the France-UK combo, type ‘londonparis.’ or ‘parislondon.’ with the period at the end.

PLEASE NOTE: You may need to wait a moment for the score to appear in the cell.

The pair of cities with the shortest distance gets a score of 100 points and the scores will decrease down to 0 for the pair of cities farthest apart. Scores are based on how close you are in that range to the closest distance.

Your final score is the average of your total points over the 25 squares. Incomplete squares count as 0.

Enter guesses above to begin.

  1. Hi Darin,
    It would be great if we could find our top results in our profiles and unlock achievements like on sporcle.;)
    I have a great result on one quiz but I don’t remember which one…I want to see my results somewhere. Just a friendly suggestion.

  2. There must be a mistake between Estonia and Iceland. TallinnReykjavik and TartuReykjavik both give you only 5 points. No other combinations are possible between these two countries

    1. hmm i just tested it with Estonia and Iceland and Tallinn-Reykjavik gave me 100 points. There is actually Narva as well over 50K in Estonia. But Tallinn Reykjavik is the closest pair. Hopefully just a one-off bug?
