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.

Directions

Begin by typing in any World 50K+ population city in the format “City, Country” – i.e. ‘Seoul, South Korea’ – SEE NAMING NOTES BELOW QUIZ. After selecting your city, name the 50 closest 50K+ cities to your selected city. You only get 5 minutes but there are 3 min bonuses at 25 and 40 cities. PLEASE NOTE: high scores for this only will be recorded for cities of 1 million+ population. *NOTE* typing will lag while you type in the place name, this is normal..once a place is in correctly give it a moment and the table will fill in with the 50 closest place distances and populations. Also note distances are from geographical centers, which may not always be near the population center or ‘downtown’ area.

NAMING NOTES: Use ‘Bosnia’ for Bosnia & Herz, ‘Czech’ for Czech Republic, ‘CAR’ for Central Afr Republic, ‘DRC’ for Dem Rep of the Congo, ‘UK’ for United Kingdom, ‘UAE’ for United Arab Emirates, and ‘US’ for United States. There are a handful of cities with the same name in the same country. IN THE US, add the state in the format ‘City, State, US’ – i.e. ‘Aurora, CO, US’ – for other countries, add a number corresponding to the population rank for that city among similar-named cities in that country..i.e. for the largest Fuzhou, China, type ‘Fuzhou, China1’.
