World 500 Km Coverage Challenge

Directions

Choose any 50K+ World city, then continue naming 50K+ cities which are within 500 km of any previously named city. Please note – North/South America and the rest of the world are considered separate sections on this quiz. The game will not end if you haven’t begun one of them and then ‘jump’ over to it to begin working on it. So you get one free city to choose outside of the 500km distance if you want to start working on the section you haven’t started. But once you have started both NA/SA and Rest of World, you cannot guess a city outside a 500km circle or the quiz will end.

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 country name…another example is “londonun”. Also, some answers require typing in other answers you may not want to guess. In this case, if you want to answer “Hamburg”, simply type it..”Ham, Belgium” will not be chosen. If you want simply “Ham” type ‘ham.’ with the period at the end. One other issue is multiple cities in the US with the same name, for these type in the state abbreviation and ‘us’ at the end – i.e. ‘jacksonvilleflus’ – if a place name outside the US has multiple locations in a country you can use ‘fuzhouch1’, ‘fuzhouch2’ etc for the Fuzhou’s in China.

How would I go about entering Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada? I have tried several different inputs and I cannot find one that seems to function for the place.

I did some light research on the area and figured out it was entered in as Wood Buffalo, where Fort McMurray is the administrative office of the municipal region. My apologies for the hold-up.

The general region nearby Sydney and Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, was amalgamated into Cape Breton, I assume to create a so-called city out of the Cape Breton municipality since Sydney had been amalgamated into it in 1995.

My apologies for the very late reply.

Typing “St Paul” seems to give you both the one in Minnesota and the one in Réunion, for free! Interesting as I don’t think there’s another way to reach Réunion.

I don’t think it helps very much but I think it would be nice to have Reykjavik be independent from the other cities since there are no 50k+ population cities within the 500km radius. Australia might also be nice since Australia is very limited and eventually loses contact with other cities in 500km radius 🙂

I would also like to point out that several cities in California, US do not interact when typed into the guessing bar. This includes cities such as Sacramento, Los Angeles, and anything that starts with San :/

I died at Medan, Indonesia because when I typed Medan it didn’t work so I tried to write Medanin for Medan, Indonesia and it killed me on Medani 🙁 🙁 🙁

Any chance we could get a version of this that doesn’t immediately kill you upon a city out of range?

Amazing quiz! Just one technical note. In cases where two or more 50k+ cities in the same country have the same name, there does not seem to be any way to enter them. Examples are Jacksonville (US), Columbia (US), and Fuzhou (China). In the US version of this quiz, you handled this by appending numbers that indicate the city’s population rank (so “madisonwi1” to enter the larger of the two Madisons in WI), but that doesn’t seem available in this quiz (none of the following work: “fuzhou”, “fuzhou.”, “fuzhouch”, “fuzhouch1”, or “fuzhou1”).

How come Novgorod and Nizhniy Novgorod don’t work?

also I tried putting Sinop, Turkey (which has 57k) and ended up with some place in the center of Brazil, not sure if there is anything that can be done about that one tbh

How do people get the score of 8537? Is there a way to get from SA/NA to Europe or Asia? Since some can get that high score?

There isn’t. You get a free “jump” from NA/SA to the rest of the world, and you can’t create a chain of cities to get there.

Tried for Fargo when I already had Minneapolis. “fargo” did nothing, so I tried “fargous” and the quiz ended. I don’t think I had the 1 jump yet either.

Reply to  Fergenaprido

This still happens. Definitely hadn’t jumped to the other continent this time.
Also, in the instructions it says “SEE NAMING NOTES below quiz.” but there are no notes on this page.
And how does one enter Jacksonville FL (or any other city where there are 2 or more with the same name in the same country)?

you can only jump between the Americas and the other continents once.

Aaaaah! I entered san francisco. for the US city and died. (It was definitely valid, just not the proper input, I guess.)

This quiz can be tricky because of the duplicate names… “sanfrancisco.” will activate a small city in Argentina. For the US city you have to enter san franciscous.

How can San Pedro (Ivory Coast) be entered? I’ve tried several combinations but none worked. Also, is there any way to know the maxiumum score for this quiz? 8640 is a theoretical number, but some places like Australia, New Zealand, Honolulu, Anchorage, Reykjavik, Cape Verde, Mauritius, Fiji etc are not reachable… unless you start there but it’s kind of dumb. 🙂

I was done with NA/SA (or at least what I could do), and then typed in Dublin Ireland to try to start the “Rest of the World” section but the game ended when I typed in Dublin. I don’t know why…

soundscape

Reply to  darin

The only thing I noticed is that Dublin, CA is not featured (or can’t be entered) and I couldn’t find a way to enter Athens, GA… as per your instrucions it should be Athensus. No big deal, they’re far from essencial and given the scope of this quiz it must be a pain to get all names right.

Portmore (Jamaica) needs a period beacuse of Port Moresby… I don’t think it’s that clever to go to Oceania for this particular quiz but all options should be available the same.

If you want “Tumen”, Russia, but type “Tyumen” (one way of transliterating the Russian name), you get a circle somewhere else.

Hummm… Tumen is small city in China, Tyumen a larger one in Russia… both are correctly displayed in the quiz… or am I missing something?

The game ended for me on that one too, and I intended the Russian city (never heard of the Chinese one). Anglicisations can be funny. I’d be a bit more generous on that

I was trying to type in Fredericton, New brusnwick to continue my north america string, and accidentally typed Frederick, starting a circle in Mauritius. Obviously I messed up, but if there is some way to add a feature allowing you to undo a turn only if its your first circle, could you implement that?
