Avoid the ‘I’ US States: The Sporcle Featured Quiz of the Week

We think all our featured quizzes are great, but once a week we find a quiz published within the last 7 days that went the extra mile.

This week’s quiz is Avoid the ‘I’ US States by Sporcle User colludacris.

What’s the Quiz About?

Think fast! Enter a US state that doesn’t have the letter ‘I’. You only have one minute to trigger all the letters in the alphabet, but it’s easier than you think  - for every state you name, the rest of the letters in the state are triggered too. For example, if you entered ‘Canada’, the letters ‘C’, ‘A’, ‘N,’ and ‘D’ would be triggered (if Canada was a US state, that is). Just don’t try Mississippi, and you’ll be fine.

Least Populous Countries A-Z: Europe: The Sporcle Featured Quiz of the Week

europe

We think all our featured quizzes are great, but once a week we find a quiz published within the last 7 days that went the extra mile.

This week’s quiz is Least Populous Countries A-Z: Europe by Sporcle User Mateo56.

What’s the Quiz About?

Here on Sporcle, we usually focus on the most populous countries, but this quiz does just the opposite. You’ll have to remember all those tiny countries in Europe to get everything right. It’s a minefield, so enter the answers you’re sure about before making guesses. There are a few letters that are the start of only one European country, so if you can remember the only ‘V’ country, you’ll be safe. Just remember to breathe as you type in the last few letters for each country.
