The Franz Ferdinand clue is somewhat confusing when combined with Winter Olympic host. Ferdinand was the Archduke of Austria, and the only Austrian city to host the winter Olympics was Innsbruck.

It'd be a bit ridiculous to put 'Stockholm City Museum' as a clue. Wouldn't that make it blatantly obvious? If not, it would make people think it WASN'T Stockholm. I think the clue is fine as is.

It's just that "Danzig" is the German name for "Gdansk" - there is no territorial claim behind that. Makes the quiz a little weird for Germans...

Günter Grass would also be a nice clue, since he was born there, and the "Danziger Trilogie" is among his best-known works - he got the literature Nobel Prize for "The Tin Drum", which is the first part of that trilogy. I don't really have an issue with "Danzig" as a clue, but Günter Grass sure would be nice, especially since he died last April.

These are just clues by association... you're inferring a lot about the clues that is not stated. Carthage is still a city and not the same one as Tunis... but... it helps you get the answer anyway.

Living in Melbourne I find it tragic and sad that one of the clues is 'Neighbours'(Sound of a gunshot offstage as the main protagonist kills himself). So much amazing culture, music, theatre and comedy has come out of Melbourne(just off the top of my head: Paul Kelly, Nick Cave, TISM, The Late Show, Hollowmen,( all those guys Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch, Santo Cilauro, Glen Robbins); amazing classical guitarist like the Grigoryan brothers and John Williams; The Living End, John Safran...if I had more time...) So sad that the clue is lamestream 'Neighbours'(No! Put the gun away don't do it!). And I don't think there are really that many 'cricket grounds' in Melbourne, no more than any other city in Australia. There is just the one cricket ground however, with a crowd capacity of 100,000, which is exceptional. Also, If you can't spell Melbourne with an 'e' on the end you don't deserve to get it. Also, got them all with over a minute left. Why Neighbours why not Space Dogs or Idiot Box...

I'm fairly familiar with Melbourne and yet most of the people you listed aren't exactly famous for being Melburnians, and most are not going to be known by non-Australians. Whatever you think of Neighbours, it is well known (relatively) around the world.

Haha, I was a little confused by the "Danzig" clue since that's still the German name for Gdansk. I also have to admit that I only got Sarajevo because I stayed in a Franz Ferdinand themed hostel while visiting the city.
