Not for me. I'm Australian, and I don't know many US capitals. I got 10, though, which I bet is at least 2 more than the number of Australian capitals anyone in the US knows.

You're probably right. Without googling...Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, and Brisbane? Can't tell you what they are all the capitals of though, I won't lie. (Or if they are even all capitals...ay).

Perth, Western Australia; Darwin, North Territory; Brisbane, Queensland; Sydney, New South Wales; Canberra, Capital Territory; Adelaide, Southern Australia; Hobart, Tasmania; and Melbourne, Victoria. Not hard if you take the 5 minutes to memorize them.

Eric, it's Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory (or more commonly just ACT) and South Australia.

I've never gotten more than 6. The 5 main state capitals are the 5 Australian cities where everyone lives, plus Tasmania (think restaurant dough mixer), plus the National Capital Territory (like Brasilia with a different name), plus whatever town is big enough in the Northern Territories. So 6 states plus 2 territorial capitals is all I'll ever come up with. Probably most people....but I'll give you credit for great fishing here.

That's the exact spot where I got thrown off also. I was doing great until Jefferson City... it must be quite a forgettable capital to most people.

Not really, thinking about it - you only have 50 states to choose from (OK, you only have 50 capitals, but you have to know which cities are capitals, and many are less well known than the states)

This would be worth doing if it accepted 2-letter postal abbreviations, e.g., TX, CO.
