US Population Coverage


First choose a level by typing ‘beg’, ‘int’, ‘adv’ or ‘exp’ – beginner is 5,000,000, intermediate is 1,000,000, advanced is 250,000 and expert 100,000. Then, begin naming cities. All cities starting with the city you chose and moving outward will begin filling in until you’ve hit a total population equal to or greater than your chosen level’s threshold. For example, if you choose ‘int’ – the threshold is 1 million. If you choose ‘omaha’, then Omaha, NE will fill in and because its population is under 1 million, successive cities moving outward from Omaha will fill in until the total population reaches at least 1 million. If you chose New York, only New York, NY would fill in as its population already meets your threshold.

Enter level to begin ('beg', 'int', 'adv', or 'exp').


  1. It took me a while to figure out how it worked, but then I really enjoyed it. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

    For yet another idea, It might be interesting to be asked to choose all the U.S. cities whose names are the last names of major league baseball players, or who share a name with a city in another country.

    1. I’m continually impressed at how you can come up with new quiz ideas and implement them so flawlessly. Coverage quizzes are what drew me to the site, an addition is always appreciated. I like how this one turns population on its head, and rewards you for guessing those small towns in the middle of nowhere.
