Sporcle Map Updates

As you might have noticed, the internet is a constantly changing beast. Well, Sporcle is jumping on that bandwagon with some of our nearest and dearest. Starting today, we put into motion a process that will change (for the better!) many of the oldest map quizzes on the site.

We’re going from ‘eek!’ to ‘chic’, and starting with the worst offender of them all. Today the former Capitals of Europe map was replaced after 6 ½ years of existence.

We can bet you’ve already played that quiz (maybe even more than once), as it has over 1.19 million plays. If you haven’t taken a peek at our new look, now’s your chance!

Be on the lookout for other map games to receive the same treatment in the near future. Bye bye, old maps! Hello, beautiful…
