GeoManiaWorld Online Map Quizzes

How well do you know your world? Use the free website GeoManiaWorld to test your knowledge of world geography and the location of cities and places. Select a game covering the whole world or focus on a region.

The games ask you to locate capitals and famous places at increasing levels of difficulty. The faster you click on a place and the closer your click is to the real location of the place, the more points you get. A red flag shows where you clicked; a green flag shows the actual location. The site displays the distance between the two flags along with a fun fact about the place.

GeoManiaWorld cheerfully provides feedback ranging from “You rock!” to “Wow, you almost nailed that one but you’re kinda slow” to “This is Earth. You know that, right?” See what it says when you allow time to run out without clicking anywhere…
