If you like the Europe Capitals, don't forget to try the randomize version here! Good luck!
Kiev has a higher percentage than Warsaw.
That's impossible because whoever guessed kiev correct also guessed warsaw correct
I got so stuck on Andorra, I always try/fail to remember its brilliant explanation on Wikipedia:
"Andorra la Vella means "Andorra the Town", to distinguish it from the Principality of Andorra as a whole."
Interestingly, in Spanish (and French apparently) it's incorrectly called "Andorra the Old" (... la Vieja /... la Vielle) due to a misunderstanding. Funny how the Spanish and French didn't get the Catalan name right! Although their "incorrect" name seems rather charming.
Anyway, nice quiz, it's genuinely one of my all-time favourites, but could I request an official QM comment as to why "Andorra" isn't accepted as a type-in for the capital? The capital's name literally is "Andorra" - giving its name to the "country" carved out for some reason by someone a long time ago - only getting the suffix "la vella" as a clarification.
As you have noticed, the capital names used in this quiz and all the Mystery Routes series are based on official JetPunk type-ins, so that users that are use to take World Capital dont get confused here. Concerning the capital of Andorra, the present English section follows exactly the same rule as other sections which seems fair enough to me and respect the history of this erroneous name.
