Geotrivia - November 2022: capital districts
25 Nov 2022
welcome to the November 2022 edition of #fridaygeotrivia!
As is our tradition, on the final Friday of month we run a geotrivia contest on twitter under the hashtag #fridaygeotrivia. This month we will play on Friday, 25th of November at 18:00 Berlin time, 5pm London time, 12 noon New York time.
As always, after the game is over we post the answers and winners here on the blog.
For more background on #fridaygeotrivia you may enjoy this recent interview with our friends at Geoawesomeness about the game.
How to play
Anyone can join in, you just need a twitter account.
Reply to the question thread on twitter (embedded below) using the hashtag #fridaygeotrivia in your answer.
Only one answer per tweet
While you can use a map, please do NOT use the internet to just search for an answer. That is cheating and will lead to seriously bad geokarma.
To get full points for an answer it is good form not just to name the relevant country but (if possible) to include the emoji flags of the country.
Some people have complained the format is a bit chaotic and hard to follow. Yes, the mad chaos is part of the fun. Embrace it. The goal is just to have fun and learn. We win by playing
What about mastodon?
We love mastodon, many of you are also ready following us there, and for those that aren’t yet, please do follow us there. This month we’re still going to use twitter, until we and everyone fully gets the hang of masto. We’ll see how we go in future months.
#fridaygeotrivia is a game with two prizes:
the sheer joy of geographic knowledge and pedantry.
the bragging rights of getting the answer first.
The November 2022 geotrivia question:
Most countries are subdivided into states or provinces.
Our question: name countries that have a special subregion just for their capital. As an obvious example: the capital of the United States is Washington DC, which is not part of any other state.
For full points you will - as always - need to include the emoji flag of the country and the #fridaygeotrivia hash tag in your answer.
