Somehow that just seems really high for a quiz this long and so many obscure answers. Unless you live in the state and have a deep interest in local geography, I am thinking any score over 40 or 50 would be unusual, at least for causal quiz takers. California is probably one of the most well known states due to TV, movies and books, yet many of these cities are unknown to anyone who does not live in or near them.
Have them for all of the other letters, too.
184 on my first try, but what I need is a map with all city boundaries/locations but no NAMES on it. Then I'd like to see what I could come up with.
My memory palace, as it were, is no match for the massive geography of all the places in CA I actually know. Plus the 100+ I don't really know.
