7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.
SEE RULES BELOW..use LOWER CASE and NO PUNCTUATION to name as many of the top 50 largest cities by country (MIN 10K POP) before time runs out. Russia west of Urals and Turkish cities in Europe incl.
Favorite this Quiz!
RULES: ONLY cities in Europe GEOGRAPHICALLY are included. You start with only 5 minutes. A country will appear initially – name the largest city from that country you can, then it will change after an answer and you do the same for the next country that shows up. You get 5 SECONDS EXTRA TIME each time you extend the top cities in a row for each country you complete. When you name the largest city of a country 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 country..i.e. if there’s a “4” you have the top 4 cities. After every answer for a country the quiz will choose a new one at random with weighting (SEE NOTE BELOW ON HOW – COULD be the same country) and the top 50 will display. Cities of the same name in other countries WILL NOT fill in – only ONE ANSWER for that country will fill in at a time. 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 country if you are stumped on it – HOWEVER you are docked 15 seconds, and could possibly get the same country chosen randomly on the next turn. NOTE: Countries are chosen at random based on a random number PROPORTIONAL to the population of unguessed cities left in them, so a country 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 country 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 country..that is the goal of this quiz.
