What about Stuttgart? You included Strasbourg, which is barely a village, but not Stuttgart.....

Strasbourg is well-known and is not a "village", but I agree that Strasbourg and Stuttgart are close enough to be both accepted for that dot.

Strasbourg is on the border (as the map shows), but Stuttgart is 100 km east, clearly inside Germany.

From the first answers on google: Population Strasbourg 271K, population Savannah 142K. So it's not the only "village" on the quiz. So what?

To me, the issue is that Strasbourg is close to a larger and better known "S" city. Savannah isn't exactly a world metropolis, but there aren't any other "S" cities in the vicinity.

Remember, you can zoom the map by clicking it. The fact that the dot lies on the border is a dead giveaway because Stuttgart is right in the middle of Württemberg.

I guessed Strasboug first. The fact that it's on the border was a hint.

Strasbourg is where the European Parliament is based, so from a political perspective it's more well-known than Stuttgart despite being smaller in population.

Huh, all this time using Jetpunk, and I only just learnt that Suez is a city and not just the name of a canal.

Consider accepting "Shenyeng" for "Shenyang"? The maps I have here spell it that way.

A good ways northeast from San Francisco. But there are a lot of S cities in that area.

How did 50% of people get Strasbourg, but only 14% got Sendai and only 16% got Surat?!! I have heard of all of them except for Strasbourg.

Strasbourg is, among all other things, one of the seats of the European Parliament. Sendai and Surat are just two of those huge bunch of cities in Eastern/Southern Asia (slight exaggeration but you get the point).

I think I only know Sendai because of Sendai Publishing- the company that used to make one of the video game periodicals I subscribed to.

Sendai is also where the massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake and the resulting tsunami caused the most damage in Japan in 2011.

How could you not haveheard of strasbourg? That is almost like saying I have never heard of washington.

Sevastopol is on the Crimean Peninsula. That dot is not.

Not sure how I missed Shanghai. Got Shenyang though by guessing random Chinese names. Also I think Stuttgart should be accepted. It is the inky 's' german city I know
