Nice quiz! Some of these are not urban areas though. For example Espoo and Vantaa belong to the urban/metropolitan area of Helsinki

Those aren't urban areas, but cities proper.

Some of them are only towns or villages. That's why I wrote urban areas.

The title of the game is misleading. You have to use the same method for all the countries: either rank the most populated urban areas, or the most populated municipalities.

Only in some cases you are ranking the population of the urban areas (for example in the UK, Norway, and Iceland), while for most countries you are actually ranking the most populated municipalities, which include suburbs without any importance.

Moreover, you should accept "Keflavik"; nobody calls it "Keflavik og Nordjarvik".

do you have sufficient sources for those countries where i used municipalities? i did not collect the data for this quiz myself, but i believe the source is citypopulation.de, which is something of a norm on jetpunk. nevertheless, if you know any better sources, i'd be glad to change the quiz. yet i do know about one country, malta, that the only way you can find "cities" there is by taking municipalities, for there is no countryside between these municipalities. these municipalities are called local councils, if you want to learn them: Local Councils of Malta and if you want to learn the most populous: Biggest "Cities" of Malta

Yes I know that in Malta there are many "cities" more populated than Valletta. But if you look on the map, they're all contiguous, and if you're talking about urban areas, that's often considered Valletta urban area.

Citypopulation is an amazing website, but it doesn't rank urban areas for all the countries, simply because there are not enough universally accepted data. So if you really want to rank urban areas you have to do a lot of research.

But what I was trying to point out is that in a game you shouldn't mix methods. For the UK you are ranking urban areas, while for France you're ranking municipalities (that's why Lille is not there), while citypopulation gives amazing data about French urban areas. Same story for Norway and Finland.

Since finding data for urban areas in all countries would take a long time (and for some countries you wouldn't find any) I think that the best solution to make a perfect game would be to just rank the population of city proper for all countries ;)

I might do that sometime, but at the moment I don't really have time to engage with large scale quizzes like this one.
