I got "criuam" and my immediate thought was 'Murica.

My immediate thought to that one was "Murica" and "Carium", combining slang and some made-up chemical element!

I got "Roasavt" and immediately thought of Saratov... but it was Ostrava. Both should be accepted for the same hint.

Nice find! Both are actually in the quiz, it's just by chance that they're anagrams! Both will be accepted as typeins now. Thanks for the find :)

We've had this issue on the French (Anagrammes aléatoires) and German (Wortgemisch) word scrambles. After contacting the Quizmaster, this can't be changed easily since the way the scrambling works using the javascript requires normal letters and not special characters.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ö is a perfectly normal letter of course. Depends on your viewpoint.

Of course, I mean the way Javascripts regular expressions work only regards A-z as normal.

Obviously in, say, Mandarin, very few (if any) of A-z are considered normal, since they use different symbols entirely.

Given the relative obscurity of some of these names, the yellow box is just in the way. Does not seem necessary. It not likely someone is just going to start randomly guessing Bydgoszcz, Dnipro or Izhevsk on their own (unless a cat is walking across the keyboard.) Heck, those look scrambled without being scrambled. (No disrespect to the residents and founders of those fine cities.) If the words were the capital cities of Europe, or the largest cities in Europe, the yellow box would make sense. Not on this one.

I find the word scrambles to be among the hardest. My brain just doesn't enjoy them.

Lemgo and Narva should be accepted.

- Lemgo = a small town of 40,000 people
- vs.
- Gomel = the second largest city of Belarus with 560,000 people
Gonna say no to Lemgo there.

- Narva = a small city with 57k people
- vs.
- Varna = the third largest city of Bulgaria with 340,000 people
Again going to say no. The description clearly states that this quiz pools from the 200 largest cities in Europe (and I think I added in the remaining capitals also), so these two would definitely not comply.

I know some of these aren't *technically* cities (almost all culprits are from UK), but it'd be silly to call this quiz Word Scramble - European Cities and some UK Towns!

So I'm aware that city isn't 100% accurate, but blame the way we designate cities here in the UK arbitrarily, rather than logically like most other countries!

I got lucky with London, Berlin, Moscow, and Copenhagen. And short words like Ufa, whatever that is.
