Some of these are not "cities." The instructions should be more clear if you include towns or other communites. For example, the closest city to Acadia National Park is Bangor; Bar Harbor is a town (officially and in reality). Similarly, Centralia is officially only a Borough (which is still liberal for a community of less than a dozen people). Few people would think of Cody or Aspen as "cities" and, legally speaking, they are just towns.

It varies state by state, but here in the U.S. it generally doesn't matter if something is a "city" or just a "town".

It does, however, matter if a place is a city or town in most Jet Punk quizzes. If we want these to be fair to everyone a certain unwritten rule has to be that we draft quizzes keeping in mind general expectations of people taking these.

Great quiz, but I have to agree with nonono on one point. Bangor absolutely fits the clue of a city near Acadia National Park that starts with B.

I guessed Bangor first, so thanks for adding it! I would have quickly tried Bah Hahbah instead, but glad to see that Bangor worked.

This again? Can't we put a caveat at the top of the front page: unless otherwise specified, JetPunk uses the word "city" the same way the United States Postal Office Does- i.e. the thing you fill in on your address that comes after the street and before the zip code.

"central" Pa isn't a bigenough clue for the least guessed town? BTW its no longer a town as it has been evacuated permanently. ;)

They have to, otherwise what's the point of ghosts if there's no one there to see them.

Edgar Allan Poe also lived in Boston (was born there, in fact, and was stationed in the Army there for a couple of years.) Maybe either allow it as an answer, or change the clue to "Edgar Allan Poe died there"? That's very definitely specific to Baltimore.

Could someone explain to me the logic of not requiring the word city for Salt Lake City, but requiring it for Oklahoma City? I've never understood that. It seems like it should be consistent, but I've never know Quizmaster to do something like that without a good reason. Interested in why.

I would say that it does make some sense, due to the fact that Oklahoma, by itself, is a state; whereas Salt Lake is not.

I think it's because Salt Lake is a nickname for Salt Lake City, but Oklahoma is not a nickname for that city. In fact, the Winter Olympics logo for that year only had the words "Salt Lake 2002" written on it.

This quiz is especially susceptible to unintended answers. I mean seriously, there are two different answers that are "C" cities in Wyoming.

I believe the biggest city on Lake Superior is Thunder Bay, Ontario - Duluth is the biggest US city on the lake.

You are right about that, but seeing as the title specifies the United States, I think it was still clear. Good catch, though!

Agreed on the Edgar Allen Poe question. Either the clue needs to be changed, or Boston needs to be accepted. Glad to see Centralia included though.

It's rumored that Centralia was the inspiration for the video game and film franchise Silent Hill, a survival horror series that takes place in a cursed mining town ravaged by fire and... other things.
