Shouldn't the dots on the continent change to green once guessed also? Not just the ones in the ocean.

I think that too - surely the dots should go green, not the countries?

Yes, that was how it was intended to work, and it is fixed now.

I would have the dots go green, and require to type each South African capital etc. Also, the way it currenly is Rwanda-Burundi-Swaziland-Lesotho are hardly visible because they are mostly 'covered' by dots

Isn't Cotonou also acceptable for Benin?

Level 77
Dec 17, 2018
Yes, I tried that, too. If it is accepted in the Capitals of the World, it should be here as well.

I think Dodoma and Djibouti are out of order.

Easy quiz, 100%. Also, Dodoma and Djibouti are out of order.

Interesting to note that already the new capital of Burundi is no longer the least well-known African capital.

I got everything except for Comoros.

Dodoma and Djibouti are out of order and Cotonou should be accepted on this quiz. Also, I think the idea for making people type each individual South African capital is a good idea, seeing as they are all marked by different dots.

Dodoma and Djibouti are out of order and Cotonou should be accepted as a capital of Benin

This should be easy. But, I couldn't recall banjul in time. 53/54.

The capital is Porto-Novo. Yes, Cotonou may act like the capital in most cases, but the country recognises Porto-Novo as the capital!
+1
Level 93
Aug 10, 2023
Then either only accept Porto-Novo on the World Capitals quiz or accept Cotonou as an answer on both this quiz and that one. It doesn't make sense to allow it as an answer on one quiz and not on another.

I would like if we had to guess all three South African capitals, it would test more our knowledge!

Oh no...... this might cause a Beninese capital debate.

Thank you for whatever variant spelling of "Yamoussoukro" you allowed that let me get a perfect score. Man, I can never learn how to spell that one correctly.
