It's a pretty good quiz. Very interesting in my opinion. Unfortunately it's quite focussed on US state borders. Hence it's almost impossible for anyone living outside the USA. A little bit more international and this quiz would get from good to great.

While I agree that it's much too US-oriented (a very common case on this site unfortunately), it's not impossible for non-Americans, it's enough to be interested in geography or a world in general a bit ;) I just got 13/16 (should've gotten Potomac as well) and I'm not American :)

Of course you should have gotten the Potomac. Every educated person in the world should be thoroughly familiar with the U.S. because we are the most powerful, benevolent nation in history.

I'd be careful what you wish for. There are surprisingly few well known international border rivers (apart from the obvious ones like the Congo or Senegal, which are no fun). The American ones make it much easier.

Yes thank you for pointing out yet again that it's absolutely impossible for anyone to know anything about US geography or culture. We all know that the United States is a black hole from which no knowledge ever escapes. It's quite literally impossible to learn something about it if you don't live there.

Surely Niagara should be accepted as a correct answer for the New York - Ontario question? I am sure I was in Ontario looking across the Niagara River to a part of New York State just a few weeks ago....

I agree. Being European I honestly had no idea about the river, just knew Niagara Falls was on the border, hence tried Niagara river. Wikipedia tells me this river exists and forms the border between New York and Ontario. I feel robbed.

The St. Lawrence Seaway is not anywhere near Niagra Falls. NY state is bordered by the Province of Ontario to its northwest, where Niagara falls is found, and by Quebec to the northeast. The nearest part of NY to Montreal is actually closer than the nearest part of it to Toronto. The St. Lawrence River is that border, and is different than Niagara. MOST of NY's border with Canada is found in Lake Ontario of the US Great Lakes, not by a river.

I know you ask for the longest river but I really feel like "Neisse" should be accepted for the border between Poland and Germany. After all, it makes up for the longest part of the border with 198 km, opposed to the Oder's 162 km.
