Same. I wonder if there's a reason this mountain is included and not the highest peak in South Africa. I had never heard of Mount Table and it just seems like a random mountain that people find beautiful. When I google it I don't even get pictures of the mountain, so it can't be that famous

This needs some editing. Mountains should be stated as actual mountains not ranges. Someone else made that mistake as well as me. Table Mountain isnt there. I couldnt even see where Belize was on the map when I was trying to find where the last country was. Also Mont Blanc should be higher up, it makes it easier to confuse it with other mountains in the area.

I'm sorry but it is very clearly Mountains not ranges. I mean the instructions talk about Mountains and it's a point on the map rather than an area like in the previous quiz. Oh yeah and it says Mountains. Not mountain ranges.

Mount Everest is within China and Nepal. You've got it too far east, it looks like it's in Bangladesh.

I spent way too much time looking for the last island. Finally noticed the giant one at the top. I blame it on trying to do the quiz before coffee.

can you change "Mountains" to perhaps summits or something of that nature? I kept trying mountain ranges, I guess I should have gotten the clue.

The fact that it said "For mountains, name the tallest one in that area" made me think it meant peaks, not ranges. Also because the little maroon square isn't big enough to cover some of the mountain ranges--it would have to be a colored area, like with the deserts.

for mountains, a lot of the locations cover multiple mountains. For instance, Everest's dot covers Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga, and that's only counting 8000ers. I highly recommend shrinking the label for the mountains to make it more clear what it's referring to.

Yeah, cuz the world's highest mountain isn't the most obvious guess there.

Great quiz, but of all the colors you can choose from, that blue? I typed black and caspian sea (with and without sea) 5 times esch, then tried azov, which I never know how to type anyway (azov azog, agov, azov, ) then I realised my mistake, and was about to scroll down to see if the category was indeed something else, then time was up.

I could have prevented the mistake by scrolling doen before the quiz, but still, we are so trained to see that color as water. (That even if you see beforehand you need countries, you might still be tempted to see it as water).
