It doesn't work both ways. If the site is skewed towards one audience, the marginalised audience has a right to complain. The other audience doesn't get to complain when the site attempts to rectify the problem.

I know it is a joke. But there is a significant difference, here the question states it is about a UK subject. Complaining now would be like complaining that a quiz about cities in the UK is too UK orientated, ofcourse the answers will be about the UK People ( well some allways find a reason to complain) dont mind quizes that are US orientated. But if the quiz claims to be international that is different (like I dont know, Important places in the world, and 80% of the answers are places located in the US)

Why are there two different Monopoly boards for US and UK??

The US board properties are real streets in Atlantic City New Jersey. Mostly meaningless to people overseas. In the same way that the British properties don't have much meaning to Americans.

most Americans have never been to Atlantic City and probably don't know the original Monopoly board was based on it.

Well, the most expensive property is Boardwalk, and I do think most Americans are aware of Atlantic City's famous Boardwalk, so by extension they do know where it's based. The British board is based on London, of course, so although many streets won't be well known (like all the orange and yellow ones I forgot just now, and I live in London), at least people are likely to have heard of Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly and Kings Cross Station. As far as I remember, many places around the world used the American board, and other countries - particularly if they were part of the Empire or the Commonwealth - used the British board. And finally localisation for many other countries came in, probably in the 1980s, I think.

There are boardwalks all over the place. Actually I remember as a child playing the game and thinking that maybe it was based on Ocean City, MD. Then later deciding it was just made-up. and then many years later learning about the connection to Atlantic City, though I've still never been to Atlantic City. My grandmother used to like to go there to gamble, that's all I know about the place. I was able to guess many of the famous places in London which is why I got a few on this quiz. There are thousands of different Monopoly boards out there... pretty much every single college town in the United States sells its own local version, there are hundreds of different international versions and novelty versions based on movies or book series or different hobbies.

London is a much more famous and well-known city than Atlantic City, even to most Americans I'd wager.

Same here, and I was surprised that my 28% garnered 5 points. I took the quiz again and added in those plus a couple more I remembered and scored 81%. I'm a 'Murican who has never been across the pond but I read a lot of British books and watch a lot of British TV on Netflix, which helped.
