Not sure about the inclusion of Spain/Canary Islands. But I really love these hard core quizzes that are ultimately highly educational.

I think it makes more sense to have those in the African one rather than the European one, and to exclude them from both wouldn't be "fair" :)

Can you please accept "Hargeisa" for "Hargeysa"? That's the only way I've ever seen it spelled before.

How is the average score 67? I only got 36, and that's every African city i know except Pretoria.

Got 46. See I missed at least 10 I know, including Yamoussoukro that I didn't know had that first o in it, and Yamoussukro wasn't accepted. Got George just because I tried guessing Georgetown, was kinda grasping at straws there.

6% of people knew Jos, Gao, Hargeisa, and Tamale? Wow - that's pretty impressive!

Sadly, I think people may remember Gao because of islamists takeover and the French Army operations to liberate the city. Or because of Civilization V I hope.

Nice quizz, very hard. I don't understand why Madeira and Canaria Islands are port of it. Could you accept Tanger for Tangier ?

I think geographically those islands belong to Africa. Tanger? ok, thanks for suggestion

Jul 23, 2017
Wow... I got 18, and the highest I could've gotten was 22 because Dakar, Accra, Benghazi, and Suez slipped my mind completely. I also know Pretoria and Rabat but those don't seem to make the list. I'm feeling pretty ignorant right now.
