Slaps self in head for missing a lot of obvious ones. I think another minute or two would be nice as I didn't have time to mentally hit every country and I don't think many have categorized world capitals alphabetically in their heads (Or HAVE they...looking at person next to me suspiciously...)
Sep 25th, 2009 at 00:40 GMT
By the way, I like the way you made it alphabetical, very helpful. I followed a link to your geography quiz, Lauro, how about being the first to take one of mine? http://www.sporcle.com/games/caramba/ModernColonialNames

Good quiz, nice having many different ways to use these popular geography ones. Definitely challenging with this time limit (although I'm sure many geniuses will argue that it is too much time.)
Sep 25th, 2009 at 07:02 GMT
Good quiz!! More time needed though
Sep 25th, 2009 at 19:13 GMT
Thx for your comments, raised the time limit to 6 minutes.
Sep 25th, 2009 at 22:20 GMT
This is great! I, too, missed a lot of obvious ones. Beirut?! COME ON! :-P I think the time limit now is great. The whole idea is to be challenged!
Oct 6th, 2009 at 20:56 GMT
Belfast should be a bonus
Oct 7th, 2009 at 04:05 GMT
Great quiz! I missed three, but the only one that bugs me is Bratislava, because I know someone from there. Missing Bridgetown and Bujumbura -- I can live with that. Thanks for the fun.
Oct 15th, 2009 at 23:51 GMT
Added 15 bonus answers. Former capitals and capitals of former nations and one for Etheridge ;)
Oct 19th, 2009 at 17:45 GMT
Well done on this! Would Byzantium qualify for a bonus answer?
Oct 20th, 2009 at 02:44 GMT
Bloemfontein as bonus answer?
Jan 15th, 2010 at 06:02 GMT
My god I can't believe the ones I missed. Hungary and Argentina! And yet I got Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan, Barbados, Brunei and more! If I keep playing sporcle eventually I won't know where I live or what my name is, but I'll know the population of Cameroon to within 10 places and what percentage of Laos is covered in water. :p
Oct 8th, 2010 at 18:10 GMT
The Middle East foiled me here... missed Baghdad and Beirut but got all the rest.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 22:31 GMT
it's a little annoying that "buda" is a bonus answer, since "Budapest" is an answerl.
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 12:20 GMT
Bleomfontein should definitely be a bonus
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 13:53 GMT
I kept on being distracted by the thought of Baddis Bababa.
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 13:59 GMT
bishkek had to be my first answer. then bandar seri begawan. then i froze for 5 minutes until i eventually thought of bogota.
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 21:00 GMT
How is it that I missed Bishkek? It's a sporcle quiz, and I missed the Kyrgyzstan related answer. I feel stupid now. Not to mention I missed Bangkok, Baghdad, and Brussels.
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 22:25 GMT
Bleomfontein shouldn't just be a bonus answer, it should be one of the answers. The country has three capital cities and one of them begins with a B. Not just a bonus, an actual answer.
Comment below threshold:
Apr 24th, 2012 at 09:31 GMT
I'm annoyed that I did so poorly, so i'm going to take it out on the quiz-maker with my nitpicking :P. Bangkok is not the official name for the capital of Thailand, it is a colloquial name only used these days by ignorant foreigners. The actual name for the capital is Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (or Krung Thep for short). Thank you, QI, for adding to my store of useless knowledge :)

I editor picked this a way back, and did so without the inclusion of Bloemfontein. I have to disagree with Chris and so think it should be a bonus answer, as Pretoria is the most widely recognized capital accepted for South Africa. Bloemfontein is not accepted on either the Capitals of the World or Capitals of Africa quizzes.
Jun 10th, 2012 at 19:12 GMT
Editor rules! Made it a bonus answer now. In Germany we have Pretoria as the capital of SA, so didn't even make Bloemfontein a bonus in 2009. I hope it's okay now.
Jun 11th, 2012 at 19:04 GMT
Eideticmemory123 - I assure you that Bangkok is the English name for the city known in Thai as Krung Thep, even official sources like the city's tourism agency & metropolitan administration use it on their websites, it is not a name reserved only for "ignorant foreigners"

Sporclitis strikes again... I came up with Banjul, Bangui, and Basseterre, but somehow I forgot friggin Beijing.
Dec 4th, 2012 at 17:16 GMT
Icon should've been a picture of Bishkek, because, y'know.
Dec 4th, 2012 at 18:39 GMT
ADVANCED SPORCLEITIS: getting the capital of Kyrgyzstan as your first correct answer, while missing the capital of China entirely.
Dec 4th, 2012 at 18:57 GMT
Why don't Bloemfontein, South Africa get no respect?
Dec 4th, 2012 at 18:59 GMT
When you get Bishkek, Bandar Seri Begawan and Bangui before Berlin, Brussels and Beijing, you know you're spending too much time on Sporcle!
Dec 4th, 2012 at 19:28 GMT
There's always a way to put Kyrgyzstan in a Sporcle quizz...
Dec 4th, 2012 at 21:26 GMT
Bandar Seri Begawan realised with 3 seconds left. No chance...
Dec 5th, 2012 at 04:47 GMT
Needed about another minute. I did it by working my way around the world in my head, and was working my way through Africa, my last continent, when time expired. All 5 remaining ones were in parts of Africa I hadn't gotten to. :(
Dec 5th, 2012 at 12:25 GMT
I remembered Basseterre and Bamako but forgot Bangkok, Bucharest and Budapest.
Dec 5th, 2012 at 19:11 GMT
The least guessed capital is the one that is right in the country name.
Dec 5th, 2012 at 19:55 GMT
@chrono: Sporcilitis is when Bangkok, Bucharest and Budapest seem like obvious answers!
Dec 6th, 2012 at 08:37 GMT
wow my last comment got a lot of negatives. I didn't mean that they were obscure capitals nobody has heard of; rather, the average person on the street would have difficulty recalling them on the spot, whereas on Sporcle we kick ourselves if we miss them, even with a clock ticking down!
Dec 8th, 2012 at 23:45 GMT
Got Banjul, but not Beijing... *facepalm*
Jan 5th, 2013 at 06:21 GMT
Bonus answer for Belfast? Good Quiz btw
Feb 3rd, 2013 at 16:01 GMT
I get Banjul and Bangui, but miss Brasilia, Bern and even Baghdad. Am I coming down with Sporclitis?
Feb 9th, 2013 at 16:38 GMT
New Idea! Everyone guess Bishkek and then give up. Then we will have one of the first sporcle quizzes where Bishkek is the most guessed answer.
