It can easily be done if you work your way around the world rather than just picking capitals at random.

I can't type that fast on a lap top computer or a wireless key board. I am a rather fast typist but this is impossible. I know every capital but there is not enough time. It is a great quiz except for the time limit. I am being redundant.

I find there is plenty of time (I had three minutes left) and I am a slow typer. Do you pick random countries and remember that capital, or do you go down the list reading each country and figuring it out? Both of those are rather slow strategies in my view. I think the best way to do it is pick a continent, start of one end of the continent and work your way across geographically.

Many countries have multiple capitals (India with Bombay and Delhi, South Africa with Pretoria and Johannesburg) which increases 196 to 200ish capitals. It's really annoying trying to find names that work if there is multiple accepted ones too. Countries > capitals

Johannesburg has never been the capital of South Africa. It does have three capitals though: Pretoria (executive), Cape Town (legislative) and Bloemfontein (judicial). Johannesburg is merely the largest city and economic hub of the country.

Bombay is no longer called Bombay--it's Mumbai--and it is not the capital, nor has it ever been the capital of India. It was only the capital of the region under the British (who founded it) and was, anyways, subordinated to Calcutta (now Kolkata) for the majority of British rule until the capital was moved to New Delhi.

its been a long time since I've had to memorize capitals and countries way back in 8th grade more than 20 years ago!! I had them about all memorized back then but I've forgotten a lot since then and some have changed. This is a good test but to try and type on my phone just seems impossible to ever do, I was just getting started with Africa when my time ran out and I was skipping a lot still too not really taking much time to think about it and still well short. 119 is all i could get. Not too bad I guess considering I just got started with Africa with my slow typing

So the time limit is 12 minutes. With 196 capitals to type out, that leaves you with an average of 3.67 seconds per capital. I find it hard to believe (sorry) that someone who is 14 or younger has the typing skills of an office professional.

Kids grow up using computers and for them to type out all of the capitals in 12 minutes would only be about 20-30 words per minute. Which is really slow.

Knowing your way around a computer and knowing how to type are 2 different things. I seriously doubt a 10 year old can type proficiently with no mistakes. Even if you can recall all the capitals quickly, you have to be spot on with your spelling, and that is where you lose time.

I don't know if someone has already commented this - but 101 comments is quite a lot to look through! Is it possible to use 'colombo' for the capital of Sri Lanka? I'm learning the capitals on Memrise, who allow both Sri Jayawardenapura and Colombo (albeit the latter with a * !) But it's such a long name to type that this really would make it a lot easier to score higher within the time limit!

Fun fact about Palau. The "capital", Ngerulmud, is nothing but the name of a small hill on which they built the Capitol building (actually, the EU built it... There's lots of foreign help/investment in that country). There is no population there, just one building: the government. Literally the population is zero in Ngerulmud. BUT it's not part of Melekeok, the state in which it is found, because it was given to the federal government by the state of Melekeok (so presumably it's no longer the state's). But there's no special status as far as i could find for Ngerulmud, like DC or the Australian Capital Territory have. So you have the strange situation of a stateless capital with no human inhabitants. I went there on a Sunday and the government was closed and I'm pretty sure I was the only human in Ngerulmud at that particular time. I parked in the spot marked "President"... He seems cool and I didn't think he would mind.

Capitals like Riyadh, Sanaa, Vientiane and others need to be spelled correctly. It may seem like it helps to shorten the names if there's a variable acceptable spelling, but most of us are typing in the proper spellings and it throws off then next entry. If I type "Sanaa" then try to type Muscat, I end up with "amuscat," because it's taking "Sana." Or Riyadh to Baghdad, I get "hbagdad." This doesn't save time, it costs time. I've never seen Riyadh spelled without the H. Ouagadougou doesn't need to be shortened either. It's not even that long a name. Sri Jayawardenapura isn't shortened, so why shorten others for no good reason? Sorry, but Countries of the World, elements and countless other quizzes require correct spellings. This one should as well. If people can't get the quiz because they're not spelling it right, then they should learn to spell it.

(I'm sure this has already been mentioned but....) Could there be some consistency on when you do/do not have to type the word city. E.g. for Guatemala City you do not, for Kuwait and Panama you do. Also, Kingston and Kingstown are different enough not to fill two answers in when you guess one.
