US Cities Quiz

How many US Cities can you name? What if I gave you as much time as you wanted or needed? Still can’t name any? Here, I’ll give you a hint:

As the caption says, there are 250 cities represented there. Surely the dots around the country will help you remember some names.

Ok, still not sure, – just put in colors. You’d be surprised at how many cities are names after colors!

Anyway, if you’d like to play this game for yourself, head on over here. There are other versions for Europe and Asia, but I didn’t even bother with those.

I found this quiz while cruising around YouTube one evening. I watched a minute or two of this British guy, then decided I wanted to I watched him.

I like his style going state by state. There’s a bunch that missed in some of his states.

Smarty Pins

smarty 11

Google has a great trivia game out, Smarty Pins.  They present you with a map of the world (usually zoomed in to somewhere in the area of the answer).   You are given a trivia question.  You answer the question by dropping a pin on the map where you think it should go.  The number of miles off you are from the actual location get deducted from your total start milage, (1,000).  Answering questions quickly gets you extra miles.

It’s surprisingly fun.  However, it’s easy to loose quickly.  I was way off in the answer to one question (wrong coast of the US), and that ended my game completely.
