Doesn't appear to accept "Bandar Seri" as a type in for Bandar Seri Begawan, as most Jetpunk quizzes do.

Rhodes! I think I remember seeing those deer when I was there. That spot is one of the possible locations of the Colossus of Rhodes.

Some of these are trick questions, like all the ones in southeast Asia, and then others are just obvious, like the South Island. Also, I recommend making this quiz maybe a minute longer.

Great quiz, really appreciate that both Nuuk and Torshavn have been accepted as capitals (both are capitals of Danish territories, Greenland and Faroe Islands, respectively).

How come Nuuk turns into Rejkyavik when they are completely different cities and not even part of the same country?
