A new Africa water quiz - customizable and more questions available

Mar 192019

Just a quick update to let you know there's a new quiz about bodies of water in and around Africa.  

The new quiz is customizable - so you can pick the questions, change the title and description, force it into a particular mode, such as strict test mode, etc.

The old quiz asked about rivers and lakes. The new quiz adds in 8 more questions:

  • Atlantic Ocean
  • Strait of Gibraltar
  • Mediterranean Sea
  • Red Sea
  • Gulf of Aden
  • Indian Ocean
  • Mozambique Channel
  • Gulf of Guinea

Water quizzes - new stuff!

Aug 082018

We've recently enhanced some of the water quizzes to give you more water features to be tested on, as well as more water quizzes that are customizable.

On the World Water quiz, we've added 10 new water features:

  • the Southern Ocean, Weddell Sea, Gulf of Carpentaria, Great Australian Bight and the Coral Sea can be answered on the world map
  • the Panama Canal and the Great Salt Lake can be answered on the North America map
  • the Strait of Magellan can be answered on the South America map
  • the Suez Gulf and the Gulf of Aqaba can be answered on the Middle East map

That means there are now 225 water features on the World Water quiz... but this quiz can be customized to pick just the features you want to be tested on. The World Water quiz can currently be customized by anyone with a free account, but come September 1, 2018, you will need to have a premium account to customize this quiz.

There's a new and improved version of the North America water quiz  which has the Great Salt Lake and the Panama Canal, along with many rivers in Canada and the US.   And it can be customized.

The South America rivers and lakes quiz  includes the Strait of Magellan, and is now customizable

The Middle East water quiz can now be customized, and the 2 new water features (Suez Gulf and Gulf of Aqaba) that were added to the world water quiz have also been added here. 



Water water everywhere... now you can customize it

May 292017

Looking for a water quiz? We've got quizzes. We've got water. You've come to the right place.

We've just launched a customizable quiz with over 200 bodies of water (oceans, seas, bays, gulfs, straits, channels, lakes, rivers...) from all over the world.  The base quiz (before customization) is a quiz that currently has 215 questions. We didn't think anyone would want to do a quiz with that many questions, so we didn't put it in the site menu, but you can try the full world water quiz here.

If you'd like to see a customized water quiz in action, I set up a short straits and channels quiz with just 14 questions. I realized afterwards that I missed the Strait of Magellan, but I'll try to get that added in later. Word of warning - just because it's short doesn't mean it's easy!

If you'd like to create your own customized water quiz with just the questions you want to include, we've set it up initially as an "everyone has access" feature - anyone with an account (free or premium) can customize the world water quiz.

Go ahead and try it! Create your own customized water quiz.



New Europe bodies of water quiz - rivers, seas, straits all in one quiz

Mar 082016

We've got a new quiz for you today - super expert level stuff. Europe rivers, seas, straits, etc. all rolled into one monster quiz with 63 questions.

But if that's too much for you, this quiz is also  customizable (for those with supporter or teacher accounts).  Create a quiz of just the water around the Mediterranean, if that's what you need. And speaking of the Mediterranean, you can select just the Mediterranean, or select any of its seas to be individually asked in the quiz.
