I think extra hints should be added. Maybe the first letter? Using a ton of guesses (and speed typing), I managed a 12. It is beating all quiztakers so far though.

Only missed Cairo and Honolulu. I was surprised by how easily I could visualise the lines of longitude and latitude. Great idea for a quiz!

Haha. Does anyone else just typed in random world cities, because she/he was too lazy to look up the coordinates on a map (or to think :P)? XD

I think the trick here is to guess a few major world cities and use their coordinates as benchmarks to get other cities. It was pretty tough. One or two more minutes would be beneficial.

Missed one. 9.0N and 79.5W. It's tricky, but once you get one, you can think of cities close to those coordinates. No more hints, it's fun this way! - Maybe more time if it's too hard, but pretty good right now, in my opinion.

It would be really beneficial if you could reorder this to keep from hopping along these enormous 10,000-mile diagonals between questions. It's somewhat forgivable when you're out along the Pacific Rim, but it's ridiculous having to jump from Europe to South Africa to Europe to Central Africa and back to Europe. Or from Central America to North America to South America. A slight reordering would make this much more intuitive.

I got 14. Possible without more hints. You just need to know your geography well (and where the prime meridian and equator is).

Surely looking up the co-ordinates on a map is cheating yourself? I wouldn't think of it. I scored only 18 in the time, but it's a truly excellent quiz.

This is perfect as is now- I think it was 5 minutes? I struggled a lot but got them all, which is I think exactly what you're going for. Really fun- I'd love to see sequels.

Umm, I got 14 by just guessing cities likely to be used, perhaps yellow box would stop guessers like me!

To be fair, though, the best way (in my opinion) to approach this without using a map is to guess big, widely known cities to use as a bearing, and then work it out from there. I think adding the yellow box in this quiz would be a lot harder than adding it to other quizzes.

Yes, but if you start with London, which is fairly easy being so close to Greenwich and the Prime Meridian, then you should be able to work way through like that, getting paris and athens and cape town and cairo etc.

97% guessed London correctly. Seems easy enough as a starting point. That was my first guess. The far off ones are helpful as well.

Really great quiz! I struggled on Panama City for a while, but managed to get all of them with six seconds to spare.

I can't remember a sadder day for me in JetPunk history. I don't drink, so failed the cocktails quiz miserably. Never been to Switzerland, got 3 on that one. Not a Jane Austen fan, got 3 on that one. And though I can draw a world map from memory and label all of these cities on it easily... trying to guess them according to longitude and latitude? blah. Got frustrated and gave up after the first couple.

I like to take on the challenge and although I may not score too well (this quiz 13/20) I think I may be learning something. It is of no use just to enjoy doing quizzes when you know all the answers.

Well got 14 before I ran out of time (though I was under the impression I'd typed Colombo and it hadn't worked - probably typed Ciknvi). Much better on latitude than longitude (I think because latitude has more effect on the look and feel of the city). Using London and the International Dateline as references, I can usually work it out, but it takes more time than given here. Nonetheless, excellent quiz and would love to see another one. Though I do support calls to yellow box it to prevent random guessing - I felt like I'd cheated when I typed in Singapore for the KL one and got it anyway, even though it wasn't the one I was going for.

Colombo's the one that hung me up too, swore I'd entered it along with Madras and Bangalore.

I like that it's NOT in geographic order and that there are no hints! Makes it more fun. Would have loved about 60-90 seconds more though.

Very entertaining quiz. Thanks. Super hard though! Perhaps allow 8 minutes (I don't know if that's possible) or cut down the number of cities. I didn't just want to use a bunch of random guesses. I really wanted to think them through, but 5 minutes wasn't long enough...

Two extra minutes would make this quiz perfect. And there is no reason why there couldn't be a yellow box.

I avoided this for a long time because I thought it would be very hard ... and then I got 'em all with time to spare. How about that?
