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.
The object of this game is to travel around Europe via 25K+ cities and with a stop in each of the qualifying 40 countries with the lowest total distance traveled. Begin by typing in any 25K+ city (SEE NAMING NOTES BELOW – IMPORTANT AS THERE ARE DUPLICATE NAMES). Then being typing successive cities and you will accumulate driving distance and your route will be shown. Keep in mind there is a 20 min time limit. Once you have finished making a stop (traveling thru a country doesn’t count, you must end up in a city there) in each country, your total distance is your score. ALSO NOTE – PLEASE WAIT until the route is displayed before typing in the next city, it should happen very quickly. You can zoom in and see all the city labels, this quiz is about finding the shortest distance not knowing all the city names, so feel free to zoom and use the labels all you want. Iceland and Cyprus are NOT INCLUDED on this quiz. Also, Andorra, San Marino, Malta, Vatican, and Liechtenstein do not qualify. Some routes possible can be over water (ferry routes).
Favorite this Quiz! NAMING NOTES: Many places have similar names. For example, “Brest” is not unique. To choose Brest, France, simply type “brestfr”, using the first two letters of the English country name after the city (i.e. ‘ru’ for Russia, ‘un’ for United Kingdom). **ALSO NOTE** some answers require typing in other answers you may not want to guess. In this case, if you want to answer “Moscow”, simply type it..”Mos, Spain” will not be chosen. If you want simply “Mos” type ‘mos.’ with the period at the end. LASTLY, in some cases there are multiple places of the same name in a single country. Newcastle, UK is an example. To choose the largest Newcastle (typically the one you want), type ‘newcastleun1′ – the others would be ‘newcastleun2′, ‘newcastleun3′ and so on (need the country first two letters for ALL cities of which there is more than one in that country). So basically, if the city isn’t coming up after you type the name, try adding a “.” after, or the first two country letters, or in rarer cases the first two country letters plus a number.
