I agree with the above two comments. I knew a dozen or more answers than I was able to type in the time available. This quiz is better as a knowledge test than as a test of speed-typing.

My new favourite quiz. Much prefer the map which I can see to the list of cities I don't bother scrolling down to. I have them all memorised in a paint the map order, like the countries of the world. Good to see it working!

Jesus, 120 out of 196, near constant typing for the duration of the quiz and I get ONE point. Either people who take this are fantastically quick at typing with all 196 calitals commited to memory, they cheat, or I am the worlds slowest ever typer. Average score is 136!? Has the time changed and the average relates to the older time allowance?

I think many have already memorized/learned them all from the other world capital maps out there. Finally, there's a way for us visual learners to master them.

Really helpful with the map! I have been not very good at capitals, but slowly learning them. Got 125 but still large swaths of Africa, Caribbean, and the Pacific Islands unaccounted for.

I LOVE this quiz! I've been trying to learn all of the world capitals but failing miserably. This is wonderful as I love maps and visuals. I'm already up to about 160 regularly, and learning a few more each time.

Awesome quiz! This is kind of what I wanted to do with my quiz here: https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/104324/world-countries-and-capitals-strict-spelling. Except the countries and the capitals would be selected separately and "light up" on the map accordingly. I couldn't figure out how to build the SVG map though so I just gave up on the map. How did you figure out how to build your SVG map? Did you already have the background knowledge necessary? I tried to follow the instructions from the blog entry on this site, but there's something I'm not doing right and I don't know what.
