Oh no. I fell into the trap you set with Group A. I thought there was a mistake with the quiz but it was my mistake. Great quiz, 5 globes.
Apr 25th, 2011 at 04:55 GMT
This is great. If you cut the time back by about 2 minutes, it will be perfect!
Apr 25th, 2011 at 06:12 GMT
@ambition: I did the same thing! Having played the first quiz, I thought that BRF had changed it up a bit so we had to unscramble the hidden place this time as well. I kept wondering why it wasn't working!
Apr 25th, 2011 at 09:57 GMT
I don't think you've ever made a quiz I didn't like! Just one small thing, which doesn't really matter: any reason why on these quizzes you arranged them so the diagonals read upwards rather than downwards, which would be more instinctive to most people?

Welcome to Kyoto, the anagram lover's Tokyo
Apr 25th, 2011 at 13:42 GMT
anime should be a bonus answer for nimea... j/k
Apr 25th, 2011 at 14:37 GMT
Thanks everyone. @tjvhammer: I have completely plagiarized your comment to add a bonus for Tokyo, thanks. @WyvernSabres: The idea behind that was to not have people figure out the hidden place right away if possible and I think it's likely less obvious in most cases if you have the end of the word rather than the beginning (assuming you work your way through the group from top to bottom).
Apr 25th, 2011 at 15:03 GMT
You cunning fox: I'd never have come up with that idea! No wonder you're such an expert puzzle-setter.
Apr 25th, 2011 at 17:54 GMT
Good quiz. No, GREAT quiz.
Apr 25th, 2011 at 20:22 GMT
Great quiz. 1 Minute might be good too.
Apr 25th, 2011 at 22:49 GMT
Wow, Tempe came out of nowhere. Is it famous for something in America?
Apr 26th, 2011 at 14:06 GMT
: Are you going to keep coming back to these comments to see if anyone answers your question, or are you going to take the 3 seconds to Google it?

Great Quiz, not knowing whether you're looking for a country, state, or capital makes it interesting!
Oct 21st, 2012 at 15:30 GMT
This is a clever idea and well-executed. They're all familiar place names, yet some of the anagrams are counterintuitive, which is all the more surprising because of the constraint that they were each five letters long. Is it too soon to hope for a six-letter sequel?
Oct 21st, 2012 at 16:04 GMT
Only on Sporcle would Qatar be the most guessed answer.
Oct 21st, 2012 at 16:37 GMT
I thought the time might be tight given my slow typing skill, but I managed with plenty of time left. I also like the mix-up of countries/capitals/states/random cities. It keeps the player from settling into a groove.
Oct 21st, 2012 at 16:43 GMT
Wow, I really need to practice both my geography and my jumbles. Excellent quiz!
Oct 21st, 2012 at 17:39 GMT
Great quiz, though Benin is not too hard to figure out, especially when you are used to reading Hebrew or Arabic ;)
Oct 21st, 2012 at 17:57 GMT
Wish i had a minute or two more..
Oct 21st, 2012 at 19:38 GMT
I agree @crashintoavan, I don't think 1 minute more would be inappropriate.
Oct 21st, 2012 at 20:24 GMT
Good quiz although I thought Tempe was a bit random.
Comment below threshold:
Oct 21st, 2012 at 20:54 GMT
All except Tempe and Boise. Are these places?
Oct 21st, 2012 at 22:05 GMT
I agree that Tempe is a little random. Much less well known than the other non-capital cities here (Lagos and Kyoto). If you wanted to change it, you could use "Maine" instead of "Tempe" and substitute "Haiti" where you are currently using "Maine." @Jonny_Segment: Boise is the capital of Idaho. Tempe is a city in Arizona.

Nice Futurama reference in the Kyoto bonus.
Oct 22nd, 2012 at 02:56 GMT
I missed my own city and state!
Oct 22nd, 2012 at 05:18 GMT
Good quiz but very hard for people who don't know American geography.
Oct 22nd, 2012 at 07:28 GMT
I felt flattered when I found that the Final group hidden answer is my own city.
Oct 22nd, 2012 at 09:22 GMT
Could use a bit more time
Oct 22nd, 2012 at 16:05 GMT
No, it doesn't need more time! I finished with over 2 minutes left and I'm not a fast typer. That's not to brag, but just to say there is ample time to complete the quiz (if you know your geography).
Oct 22nd, 2012 at 19:43 GMT
I lived in Tempe for a few years. Still didn't get it.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 00:18 GMT
really cool quiz
Oct 30th, 2012 at 22:48 GMT
instead of kyoto i typed in tokyo, I think of acronyms too much. also I think it would be funny to replace YANKE with KANYE and GOANT with TANGO
Nov 3rd, 2012 at 04:13 GMT
Born & raised in Maine. I miss it every day...and unfortunately I also missed it on this quiz.
Jan 31st, 2013 at 02:45 GMT
too random for me... a lot of these i plain didn't know.... states and countries obviously i knew, but some of the other locations i never heard of.... dang
Feb 13th, 2013 at 15:30 GMT
i guessed the final answer without guessing all the other answers, i just kept typing in 5 letter worded places ... But good quiz though
Feb 13th, 2013 at 21:17 GMT
I love these quizzes cause you're having to think in terms of cities/countries, global/local (who would expect someone from Palau to know Boise??) :-)
Apr 22nd, 2013 at 17:31 GMT
I finished the hidden answer without all the clues, shouldn't that end the game?
