Not sure they all work well (English isn't my first language though so feel free to correct me!). Pinocchio-Tokyo and Brisbane-Lisbon don't sound right to me.

Pinocchio-Tokyo works just fine. Brisbane-Lisbon also works except for those of us who mispronounce Brisbane to rhyme with "rain" rather than with "sun." Learn something every day.

Was on a roll until I got to Saag. Kept trying The Hague, until I realized that 1) it's not the capital of the Netherlands, and 2, English butchers the pronunciation, so it doesn't rhyme anyway...

This is the way a rhyming quiz should be done. Others don't quite get it right, because the clue and the answer have different numbers of syllables, or more accurately, the number of accented syllables. For instance, Pinocchio and Tokyo have different numbers of syllables, but the first syllable of Pinocchio is unaccented. Nice quiz!

They rely on the standard pronunciation for English speakers. Using foreign pronunciations is generally considered pretentious. i.e. Don't go into a bakery in the U.S. and ask for a "cwa-sohn" or talk about your trip to "Meh-hee-co".
