Who can give me the pronunciation of "Ngerulmud"? It's not in the geographica dictionary, at least not the online one.

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!

103 on first try. Not bad for someone who has to type with one hand.

144 without even trying. Not so shabby for someone who has to type with his left tongue.

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.

Try this: See how the Micro-Nations of Oceania are in a sweeping arc, from East to West: Tonga, Samoa, Tuvalu, Nauru, Palau, Brunei, Singapore, Maldives, Comoros, Sao Tome. I put them on paper like that with capitals underneath. Worked great.

Please can you accept Toshkent for Tashkent. It is an official alternative spelling on maps and Wikipedia.

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

Lusaka, Dodoma and Harare for me.

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
(30)
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". :)

The capital of Kiribati is Bairiki.
May 29, 2014
dasubergeek

No it isn't. The State House is in Bairiki, but the courts are in Betio and the legislative assemble is in Ambo, all of which are part of South Tarawa.

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!
Jun 27, 2014

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.

A great quiz would be the reverse- having all the capitals listed and having to fill in countries.
Jul 28, 2014
(46)
Random capital to country. Only does about twenty at a time, but changes answers every time you play. Just completed this after months of trying. I managed all the countries, well, quite easily it seemed to me. But the capitals blew me away with their complexity. Had to do it by regions as others have. Some spellings are infuriating!

Incidentally, based on Google Maps and conflicting spellings on the same Wikipedia page (for Myanmar), you should accept NaypyiTaw.

Hit a ceiling at 158. Stayed there for days and just broke through to 165. Gotta type faster, think faster. Can't keep looking at the countries list or the time remaining. Best if I "look" at the countries map inside my head.

After a month, I did 189. So....7 left, names I've seen so often. Still, there was time left on the clock. It's doable for me, a 73 year old man with nervous hands. At 6:00 left, I check the clock to see if I am past 100. Some times I do the "long" countries together:Ndjamena, Ngerulmud, Nouakchot, Nukualofa, Antananarivo, Funafuti. What a great quiz !

Your answer for Sri Lanka is spelt incorrectly. I typed it straight from the wikipedia article and it was not accepted. Considering it's such a hard answer to spell, surely just typing "Sri Jayaward" can be enough to demonstrate that you know the answer.
