Some of the grey answers which are filled in are islands rather than towns, however 'Chatham Islands' means a lot more to the vast majority of us than 'Waitangi' or 'Owenga'.

I love the quiz. Very well made, and the map looks beautiful. A suggestion, maybe make the blocks even. Other than that, great quiz!

I see. The first column is for negative UTC hours, while the second is for positive hours. It used to be even before I changed it.

I really dont understand how it only has 45 takes. It is by far one of the best quizzes on the site and it should have been featured a long time ago.

Thank you! It wasn't the hardest map to make, as I simply redid a US government map which is in the public domain. Despite this, I'm pretty happy with the results.

Yes, for sure! The map is based off of the most common free-use map avaliable (I see it everywhere). I look foward to playing your quiz :)
