European Map Knowledge

How well do you know your European map? Well I found this little pastime on Christina G's blog. Be aware, it is very addictive. You can test your knowledge of some European city names, and also develop your fine motor skills in collaboration with your desk mouse. Be sure to have a coffee break.



That made me no 8 today, and no 445 out of 19,665 time-wasters at the time. (Sixth time I have improved my score and updated this post.) You can check out the highest scorers of the day when you have finished a game and entered your details. I know I should never have started, I blame Christina G personally ;-) In the end you cannot tell Tallin from Turin or Katowice from Catania.

Holy Moly! Your score rocks. Rainer spent all evening last night trying to get on the high scorers board (I think he topped out at 29680 or something). I'm too sleep deprived to get above 29200, I always make at least one really dumb mistake each game (what does this say about me being behind the wheel of a car?).

Thanks for the link. I'm not sure my score will beat yours - geography was never my best subject ;) I'll have to give it a try anyway.

Ummmm. Let me rephrase that... It's addictive!!!

I think that living in Germany is cheating! I was only ranked about half way down the list (I did only have one go) and I know Europe really quite well :-(
