I know! I made one for Texas counties, where each county would be filled in by any adjacent county, and it took me hours to make. But there are more than twice as many cities on this list than counties on mine, and a widened parameter of anything within ~620 miles being an acceptable answer. I bet it took this guy weeks to get everything straightened out.

I'm embarrassed by how long it took me to figure out how to get 100% on this quiz. When you don't know the name of a city, hover over the nearest city that you've gotten and type that in. You can then work your way towards any city you don't know, except for the cities that aren't within 1000 km of any other city in the quiz.
