"Yert" didn't work. Apparently it's spelled "yurt".

Why is Tianjin accepted for Temüjin? I guessed on the last capital of Mongolian Empire. As I see it, the two things have nothing to do with each other (correct me if I'm wrong).

I was making wild guesses for the currency and happened to try yuan which gave me the dynasty. I love freebies.

I'm surprised that one's only guessed at 77%. For some reason I thought that would've been higher.

Please accept "Eurasian Steppe" for "Steppe", it threw me off especially because it included Asia in the question.

This might be a bit nitpicky, but can you change "Mongolian Empire" to "Mongol Empire"? I've never heard of it being referred to by the former name.

Speaking of Mongolian music, you should give a listen to the Hu (not to be confused with the Who). They're a Mongolian hard rock band (some call them metal, but they're not) that uses traditional Mongolian and instruments and throat singing and is becoming pretty popular around the world. They had their first US tour last year and it did pretty well. Check it out. Definitely something different. Yuve Yuve Yu.

"Term for the vast grasslands of Asia, which includes much of Mongolia" I would use the term "Eurasia" instead of Asia, because it stretches into Europe too, and just because it's generally referred to as the "Eurasian Steppe." I've seldom heard it called "Asian Steppe."
