Hi everyone,

Unfortunately we have had to cancel this month’s #fridaygeotrivia due to unforseen circumstances. Apologies, we will be back on Oct 28th

welcome to the September 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’s game has unfortunately been cancelled.

As always, after the game is over we post the answers and winners here on the blog.

See past monthly geotrivia questions and answers.

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.

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.


#fridaygeotrivia is a game with two prizes:

  1. the sheer joy of geographic knowledge and pedantry.

  2. the bragging rights of getting the answer first.
