Super quiz, the way you combine 2 skills. 5 globes and a nomination. :)

The scrambled Podgorica (Montenegro) has two superfluous letters, it should be RIDCGPOOA and not RIDCIGPOONA. The usual spelling of the capital of Malta is Valletta, so the scrambled name should also have two L's.

@dancastro: thanks for telling me; I fixed it
Oct 13th, 2011 at 15:00 GMT
Luxembourg, Kosovo, Andorra, Cyprus need adding

This was really good fun, thanks =)

I recognized Slovenia's capital immediately. The scrambled version doesn't look all that different from the unscrambled version.
Oct 13th, 2011 at 23:34 GMT
Still and "n" too much in RIDCGPOONA. Otherwise, great quiz.

Fun quiz. URXEMGLUB is missing an O.

@everyone: thanks for your corrections and suggestions! I wouldn't have known I made these mistakes otherwise.

Great quiz, @starwars314159! I seemed to know most of these capitals from just hearing them, but don't know what country it goes with, so that made it a nice challenge for me! Also, you should accept Vatican instead of just Vatican City like most quizzes do.

After going through once and getting about half, I found it easier to think of a capital and then look for it. I got about half the rest that way. Could still have done with another minute though.
Nov 11th, 2012 at 15:15 GMT
Great! I love it when I run out of time because there's just one or two that stump me for too long! Makes it worthwhile doing it again.

For NASPIRIT, I could not stop seeing something-stan in my mind. Too many times doing countries of the world I think!

Another minute or two would have been nice. Fun!
Nov 17th, 2012 at 10:04 GMT
So I was following the strategy of thinking of capitals and then looking for them, not going in order, obviously... About halfway through, I was going through the Balkan countries, ending up with 'Pristina', which I somehow didn't see anywhere. Fast forward to the end of the quiz, there's one answer left: 'NASPIRIT.' And I couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was. True brilliance.
Nov 17th, 2012 at 13:29 GMT
fun quiz, but nearly enough time to even read/type
Nov 17th, 2012 at 14:02 GMT
i was going nicely but ran out of time way before the end. there needs to be more time because the achievement with anagrams is solving it rather than how quickly it can be solved, with this time limit it reduces the fun
Nov 17th, 2012 at 14:12 GMT
Darn. How could I not unscramble Lisbon???
Nov 17th, 2012 at 14:15 GMT
This hurts my brain...
Nov 17th, 2012 at 14:38 GMT
It's a pity you're keeping multiple word capitals as multiple words, otherwise you could have had 'ROMANIANS' instead of 'ANS MORAIN'.
Nov 17th, 2012 at 15:56 GMT
Agreeing with the more time comments.
Nov 17th, 2012 at 16:18 GMT
Did anyone else attempt to frantically type in "Oslo", "London", "Sarajevo" etc?
Nov 17th, 2012 at 17:24 GMT
Should accept Bosnia-Herzegovina as well seeing as that is used commonly. Kept thinking I was spelling it wrong >
Nov 17th, 2012 at 18:04 GMT
as someone that hasn't spent time learning European capitals, i still loved this.
Nov 17th, 2012 at 18:58 GMT
fun quiz! loved it!
Nov 17th, 2012 at 22:59 GMT
Too easy for European guy :-) On the other hand, I was able to guess just a few capitals of US states...

don't add more time - it was just challenging enough, even though (being a lousy typist) I ran out of time with one left to get! :-(
Nov 18th, 2012 at 11:06 GMT
One of these days someone needs to come up with a Sporcle-approved short-form for Bosnia and Herzegovina! (Maybe steal from the St. Vincent and the Grenadines playbook?)
Nov 18th, 2012 at 14:16 GMT
Sigh - when will I ever remember that KKHIBES is in Asia...
Nov 28th, 2012 at 15:09 GMT
I cannot explain why, after entering country name after country name, I suddenly decided that I needed to spell out Reykjavik, again, and again, and again.
Dec 17th, 2012 at 12:28 GMT
Nice quiz, starwars314159. Five out of five!
Dec 18th, 2012 at 14:35 GMT
Found Chisinau just in time, after going through all the european countries two times
Jan 6th, 2013 at 12:27 GMT
THE NETHERLANDS AND BELGIUM. I ALWAYS FORGET THE @#*!%^& NETHERLANDS AND BELGIUM. WHY.
Jan 21st, 2013 at 21:19 GMT
I found Greece extremely hard, my head aches now. @HughCHEvans : I know right ! Every time I forget Lux, Belgium AND Netherlands, Why ?!!
Feb 4th, 2013 at 12:19 GMT
Had like two minutes left when only CHUTEBARS was left and I got a complete blackout and just couldn't figure it out no matter how hard I tried. So I let the time run out and when the right answer popped up I screamed of anger because HOW DID I MISS ROMANIA. I feel so stupid now.
