So just how good is your European geography? I got 76% on the first try, stumbling over all the ridiculous little principalities that seem to infest the continent, as well as dealing with an Eastern Europe that looks nothing like it did when I memorized those maps in the '70s. Yes, memorized. Didn't everyone carry around a world atlas when they were 8?

Because you had to have the placement of the cities dead-on. I knew Vatican City was in Roma, but I pit it a bit too central.
Of course, that was the only one that I knew and should've gotten correct.
Scott - do you still have that atlas? Any atlas made back when the Earth was still thought to be flat ought to be worth some money...
