6 out of 22...I would say that's alright. We as Europeans should complain less about the focus on America (on an American site) and start creating quizzes that involve other parts of the world if we feel they are underrepresented.

I agree. Plus the Napa Valley is world famous, not just California or nationally renowned . As of now, no answer under 50% so I think it a rather fair quiz.

With the redrawing of French regions, the clue about a French region now is back to having only one correct answer: Normandy, which used to be a historical region split into two administrative region. It is now also an administrative region. The former region "Nord-Pas-de-Calais" has now merged with some other stuff into the awfully named "Hauts-de-France".
