**FOR A COUPLE CITIES (such as Koln) YOU MAY HAVE TO USE AN ALTERNATE POPULAR SPELLING IF IT BEGINS WITH A DIFFERENT LETTER THAN A COMMON SPELLING* - this was done to make the quiz go faster *QUIZ MAY TAKE 10+ SECONDS FOR CITIES TO FILL IN EARLY ON WITH AN EASIER LEVEL IF YOU GUESS A COMMON CITY NAME** It *MAY* get slow if you start zooming/moving around the map a bit unless you have a relatively new, fast processor. Enter answers in LOWER CASE and WITHOUT PUNCTUATION - STATES completed refer to the 16 German states (Länder). You begin with 20 min for Beginner, 45 for Int, 90 for Adv and 180 for Expert levels. ZOOMING TIP: Hold SHIFT key if zooming with the mouse wheel as this prevents the page from scrolling at the same time. Cities, towns, villages, municipalities all included. **High scores are sorted based on total cities gotten first, then by time** You will only see the high scores for your level when you take the quiz.
