The object of this quiz is to name (see NAMING NOTE below) as many World 1M+ agglomerations as possible starting from the position you choose without skipping agglos moving in the opposite direction. For example, if you choose ‘S’ you ‘start’ at the South Pole to begin and you are aiming to name the most southern World 1M+ agglo, then the 2nd most southern, and so on as you move north. Naming correct agglos increases the population counter – the object is to get the highest total population among all agglos you name. However, once you move in a direction you can’t name agglos already passed by (i.e. covered in the blue shaded region).
NAMING NOTE: You must end each agglo name with a period – i.e. ‘Tokyo.’ – this prevents naming an agglo whose name is a partial name of the agglo you want to answer. If you name an agglo that has multiple answers, only the closest upcoming one will be answered for you, so you won’t name the farther away agglo from the one you are trying to guess.
You don’t start with a ton of time, however there is a 30 second time bonus for naming the next agglo in order, and a 15 second bonus for naming the 2nd or 3rd next one in order. So if you name well you can accumulate a lot of extra time.
