So cool but a bit confusing. The initial dot remains black, and each new dot shows up green, making it a bit difficult to keep track on which is the new dot you are trying to guess.

I agree with carawebo. I found it very hard to see where the new dots were, especially in crowded areas like eastern China and Japan. Good idea though.

I tried making the appearing dots black, but didn't manage to. Not sure there is a way of overriding green as the colour for correct answers. Thanks for your comments!

When you put the cursor over the dot it tells you the previous city which is helpful, but when I got half way through I could not keep track of where the new dot was popping up. Cool quiz though, I enjoyed it.

actually messing around with fill/stroke I managed to get the dots to be black (not too sure how I did that), hope that's better

Yeah, good idea, but I had to waste a lot of time searching for the next dot. Also, I've spotted a mystery. More people have gotten Washington and Ho Chi Minh than Hangzhou. How is this possible?

I agree with the others. Good quiz, but difficult to see find the new dot. Don't know if it's possible but if the new dot was black and then turned green after being correctly guessed, then the black dot would always be the one you need to get next. Also, I got stuck after Philadelphia. I could not find the next dot. I even counted them and could only find 52, I needed # 53. Finally, I just guessed Hong Kong which was the right answer but whose dot was completely covered by Guangzhou.
