Please accept alternate spellings. Five of the governorates have spellings that end in -iya that you only accepted as -ia (for reference, go to Egypt in Merriam Webster's Geographical Dictionary).

And Beni Suef could use a few alternatives. Definitely "Bani" and please some of the "Suaif, Sueif, Swaif, Sweif, Suwef" etc... As a native Arab I knew the exact names but I couldn't transiliterate them correctly. Arabic is a mess and the government didn't really handle it that well! (I mean they were efficient at minimizing the number of letters, but still)

Added some new type-ins, thank you. I've already researched these names for alternate spellings, so if you'd like any more please comment! (Arabic to English transliteration is always difficult).

Btw, loads of thanks for the map and for taking the time to make such a quiz. Always delights me to take obscure middle eastern quizzes like this!

You are very welcome! I think it's important that major countries such as Egypt get their own quiz.

Of course, every country deserves its own regions quiz!
