Is there some logical reason why "St George" is accepted for Grenada but you must write "St John's" for Antigua and Barbuda?
Dec 14, 2013
(67)
No, there's not.
Dec 17, 2013
(56)
Maybe the same reason why "Vatican" is accepted for "Vatican City" but you need to type out "City" for Guatemala, Panama, Mexico, Kuwait and Andorra.

yeah the official US list of independent states says both Colombo and Sri ... are capitals of Sri Lanka ... (it lists Colombo first and is mentioned more often)

Holy cow! 63/196... Is my American education showing? I thought I was doing good because I can rock the world map, but these capitals kicked my butt! I must practice and return.

Even Jeopardy, under the category of Asian Capitals had an answer that referred to the suburb of Kotte in this capital city. Answering with Colombo gave the contestant an acceptable response. Why not in this quiz? Sri * will just never stick! (& I am up to about ~125/196)

Can you add Palestine (Ramallah)? The UN now recognizes them as an independent state. And I hope that everyone who complains about Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte realizes that the more they do it, the more their going to learn how to spell it.

C'mon...London the capital of United Kingdom? United Kingdom isn't a country, its FOUR different countries. London is the capital of England, Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, Cardiff is the capital of Wales and Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland. I'm guessing you are an American. That's like me saying Washington DC is the capital of North America.
Mar 17, 2014
(47)
England, Wales, Scotland, and N. Ireland are countries, as you say, but they are constituent countries, which is commonly used in the context of being a part of a whole, and do not have the full legal rights of other regular countries around the globe. The UK itself is a unitary state, which means that it had full power of its constituent countries and has the power to add or take away from their rights. So, the four different parts of the UK are countries only in name, while the UK has united these four countries under one leadership and has only given them a limited degree of autonomy.

I know it annoys me how England's capital gets picked. I'm from Wales and nobody knows about Wales because England is like ' The Country Of The Countries'

I have a note for vivad0. I used a digital recorder. I would say the country, wait for 3 seconds, and then say the capital. Then I burned a CD, and I would practice it that way. It worked well for me. It also worked for me becoming a National Spelling Champion. That little digital recorder has been a wonderful learning tool!

The actual capital of Kiribati is South Tarawa - not just Tarawa. Both options should be allowed,

True, it was quite frustrating when South Tarawa wasn't accepted. :|

For me, learning them by region / continent is effective. I started with the regions I was more familiar with: South America (the smallest list), North (& Central) America (logical next step from S. Am.), Europe (very familiar), then Asia (where I'm from, but the biggest list of those familiar to me). Then I moved to the unfamiliar ones: Oceania (the smaller list, and one I should know better because it's closer to my location), which I have just finished learning, and Africa (the biggest list and the least familiar). My first attempt was 106/196. My latest (tenth) attempt is 163/196.

The Capital of Palau is Melekeok, not Ngerulmud!!!!!

False, Ngerulmud is the capital and it is in the state of Melekeok

Boom finally 196/196, Yamoussoukro, Antananarivo and Tegucigalpa were the final ones I eventually managed to get!

I think I have found a bug. It says that I scored 71 but that my high score is 70! That's clearly an inconsistency. It might be because I was still typing one right at the end of the time. Perhaps my high score was calculated before my actual score was? But that doesn't seem to make any sense...

Missed the usual thing, Tanzania's capital and 6 more of Oceania.

Why don't you accept "Krungthepmahanakorn Amornrattanakosin Mahintrayu thethaya Mahadilokpob Noparat Rajataniburirom Udomrajanivej Mahasatharn Amornpimarn Awatarnsatis Sakatadtiya Wisanukamprasit" for Thailand?

I don't like the fact that misspellings are allowed. That makes it not so much a test of knowledge as a test of kind-of, sort-of, half-knowledge. I don't want to be rewarded when I misspell something, because that only reinforces the bad spelling in my brain!
May 19, 2014
(31)
I kind of agree. Though I wish someone could develop these sorts of games with speech recognition. I'd rather be able to say them correctly than spell them correctly.
Jun 16, 2014

That would be good, too. I've been practising saying "Ngerulmud". :)

Every time I take this quiz I forget the capital of Chile. And every time I check my answers after I'm basically kicking myself for forgetting it.
Jun 20, 2014

I have an automatic brain trigger to type Santiago with Santo Domingo, San Jose, San Salvador, San Marino, Sao Tome, St. Georges, and St. Johns. I think it comes from having taken that "Biggest cities named for saints" quiz one too many times.

Finally done it! 196/196 = 100% with 0:41 remaining. :) On my... 35th attempt. That's probably quite bad, isn't it? But I am only 4. ;)

For those of us over 60 it would be rather nice if we could extend the test time or have a second untimed option (and therefore unscored) - I know about 160 but because of difficulties in typing i rarely get past 80 or so!

There is a "Stop Timer" link at the top of the page, actually. :) If you click on that, you get to do the quiz untimed.

They should make versions in other idioms, because it's so hard to me to translate the names and sometimes I don't know them in English.
