One inaccuracy here. You labeled the mountains surrounding Mordor as Mordor when Mordor is the land inside the mountains and not the mountains themselves

You're definitely right. I tried to cover that discrepancy in the instructions: "choose the best answer from the options given." The truth is, I just like how it looks when the mountains are highlighted. :)

You could make it into two separate answers by separating them into the Ephel Duath(Mountains of Shadow) and the Ered Lithui(Ash Mountains)

It also feels LOTR-centric. Since this is a Middle Earth map quiz, I'd like to see more places which aren't necessarily visited in the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. Maybe add some Silmarillion locations or general locations in the west

That was intentional. I wanted the quiz to be accessible to casual fans. Also, full disclaimer... I haven't read the Silmarillion.

I made a similar quiz shortly before you did ( but I'm not gonna whine about it, because your map does look pretty good

Cool! Two different takes on a similar idea. Thanks for sharing!

Me too

Also not whining, yours are nice and don't have something that looks like a penis, but if I had known someone else was willing to do it I probably wouldn't have made it.

Nice quiz. For the Francophones among us, here is my Middle Earth Map Quiz / Terre du Milieu - Carte Quiz.

Hope you'll like it!

I apologize for 'nerding it up,' here, but the place for Minas Tirith looks more like the place where Osgiliath would be. Since Osgiliath is not an option, it isn't really confusing for quiz takers, BUT as a Tolkien geek I had to say something!
