Great to see it featured! I suggest combining the various peninsulas, mountain chains etc into a single 'geographical features on the map'

Interesting quiz, but your borders for Labrador are way off. As it is, your peninsula is actually mostly Quebec (although missing the southern part and Gaspesia). Of the zone you are currently showing, Labrador is only the eastern third/half. Please correct this! Thanks :).

Actually, the borders for Labrador peninsula are correct according to Wikipedia

And if you switch wikipedia in french, it's named "Québec-Labrador".. funny.

it is relatively small but how about Washington state's Olympic peninsula

Level 49
Nov 16, 2016
Nah, they already have Florida. Putting another American peninsula would make it too US-centric.
+1
Level 65
Nov 16, 2016
Good suggestion, but it is kind of small, which would make it hard to see on the map.

Neither did I before making the quiz. In Alberta it's just "that funny looking part of Quebec".

Is it worth allowing "York" for 'Cape York'? I appreciate it is correctly called Cape York, but as a type in surely York is close enough!?

How do you add a map to a quiz? Great quiz by the way!
+1
Level 65
Jan 10, 2017
When you create a quiz, select the "more options" button. Using the "Upload Map" button, you can upload an SVG vector map onto your quiz. You will need to either download or create your own map to do this though. I use Notepad++ and Inkscape to edit my maps, but I've heard NauturalEarth is another good program. Maps by the Quizmaster can be found here. The Quizmaster has also written a couple blog entries about adding maps to quizzes, so I recommend you check them out. Hope this helps!

I like it. Maybe you should edit Florida and Scandinavia so only the actual peninsula is highlighted instead of the cultural / political region.
+1
Level 65
Jan 11, 2017
Florida's largest extent is represented as such in the quiz. Also, Scandinavia is technically not part of the quiz, but Fennoscandia is, (with Scandinavia as a type in).

Can Indian count for Indian Subcontinent? If Southeast asia counts for Indochina, then Indian should count for Indian Subcontinent.

So "South Asia" works but not "India"? Interesting...
+1
Level 65
Jan 12, 2017
South Asia and India are not the same thing. The borders for the Indian Subcontinent do included parts of Pakistan, Balngaldesh, Nepal and other countries. However, "Indian" is accepted as a shorthand for Indian Subcontinent

I'm glad your enjoying it! Unfortunately there are very few large peninsulas that this quiz hasn't already covered, probably too few for a sequel.

Apparently Finland, while not Scandinavian, is part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. Learn something every day.
+1
Level 65
Mar 10, 2017
That's because the peninsula featured is Fennoscandia and "Scandinavia" is just a type in :)

"Fennoscandia" never works on these quizzes so I usually just try it jokingly hoping there's another geography nerd out there who knows of Fennoscandia and I have to say I was genuinely surprised when it worked! Fun quiz!

Not really. Just like "Edward" isn't accepted for Prince Edward Island, it's not the same thing.

Your example is akin to accepting "York" for New York City.
But in this case "cape" and "peninsula" are semantically redundant. It would be like having to type out "Isle of Man" on a quiz where you didn't have to type out "island" for the other 19 answers.
Could York just be accepted for Cape York? And yes, technically Cape York is the very end of the larger peninsula.

I don't think that Scandinavia should be an acceptable type-in for Fennoscandia. While it is usually incorrectly referred to as Scandinavia, they are NOT the same thing.
