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.

Name the largest # of the 381 US metro areas (the Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the 50 states) in a row you can. Bonus time is given based on the top # of cities you achieve. Try naming the MSA by using the largest city in it – other cities may be accepted. SEE NOTES.

NOTES – The object here is to name as many of the US top MSA’s in a row you can before time runs out. You start with only 5 minutes but will get 5 extra seconds per MSA in a row you get starting with the largest. For example, if you guess the largest MSA right away you get 5 extra seconds. If you guess the top 3 you will have had 15 total seconds added, then if you guess the 5th, 6th and 7th without the 4th, then guess the 4th you will get 20 more seconds (due to getting four more in a row starting with the largest). The number by “Top:” shows the top N largest US MSA’s you have in a row starting with the 1st. So if it says “Top: 8” it means you have the 8 largest and are missing the 9th (although you may or may not have the 10th and lower MSA’s).

    The marker for Peoria pops up in Arizona as the Phoenix suburb rather than the metro in Illinois.

    The same for Salisbury. It pops up as the NC city rather than Maryland. Also, thanks for the quizzes and prompt fixings. These are always fun.

    For some reason, typing “Mansfield” gives the Dallas-Fort Worth suburb in Texas, instead of Mansfield, Ohio.

    It looks like the marker for Lancaster, PA is showing up as Lancaster, CA.

    …and the Boise/Boise City issue grows bigger. This quiz lists Boise as Boise City.
