Rats, I keep forgetting Rangoon was changed. Couldn't think of any "Y" cities in Burma.

I didn't know that until I read your comment. I even tried Rangoon on the, very remote, off chance It would be allowed.

I only knew about half and thought that surely "Ypres" would be one of the answers, so typed it in just for the heck of it. Sadly that did not work.

I'm guessing "Yuma" is just a pop culture reference I don't get. I do get geography though, so the only other one I missed was Yellowknife. Besides the native Inuits, Eskimos, etc. does any substantial population even live in the Northwest Territories?

The Inuit live mostly in Nunavut. Eskimo is a term used only in Alaska. The Dene nation lives in the North West Territories along with other native and non-native people.

Damn. Tried Yakutia but didn't try Yakutsk, on the basis that the former is the region, the latter the city. Never played Risk.

Neither is close to Irkutsk, though maybe in Risk it is.

Around a 3 hour flight between the two cities. 3160km if you are driving.

Maybe "Russian city with coldness records, namesake of a Risk area" would be a better clue for Yakutsk (even if Verkhoyansk is colder, it's not nearly as big of a city and it doesn't even match with the theme of the quiz, nor the second part of the clue).

No Yaoundé? I was so certain it would be somewhere in the answers, I've typed it in at the beginning...

? Lots of places around the world start with Y, so why would you think that one particular place you think of might be in the quiz?

My grandfather was in the eighth battalion from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and survived the Second battle of Ypres, so I couldn't miss that one.

Yamoussoukrou or Yaoundé would be nice additions as you'd have something in Africa :)

I was so hoping the Yenisei River would be an answer, and my knowledge of random Russian rivers would finally be useful. Sadly not.
