Traveling Game: 26 Cities A to Z Challenge

Are you a BootsnAll member? For those who haven’t heard of it, it’s a traveling community with members from all over the world. There’s lots on the site, but the forums are the part that I frequently visit. Today, I encountered an interesting traveling game in the forum. It looked simple, but ended up being much more challenging that I thought it would be. Still not able to get the full score, I want to share the game with you guys!

Traveling Game: Have You Been in A to Z Cities in Different Countries?
M is for Monte Carlo

Game: Destination Sudoku by elAdi

Game objective: Make a list of the name of towns/cities/regions you’ve been to, from A to Z (one each). To make the game more interesting, you can only list 1 town/city/region from each country. The list should not include the places that you’ve been just for a short transit. There must be a sense of exploration/experience to those cities. This game depends on your honesty.

Try it out! It’s not as easy as you might think!

Post your answer here or in the forum itself, so everybody can enjoy your effort! For those who manage to complete the list without cheating, I’ll upload your answer in this post with a link back to your travel blog :)

Traveling Game
The apes of Gibraltar! (G = checked)

So, here’s my best attempt:

  • Andorra la Vella, Andorra
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Dubai, UAE
  • Edmonton, Canada
  • Funchal, Portugal
  • Granada, Granada
  • Heraklion, Greece
  • Istanbul, Turkey
  • Jakarta, Indonesia
  • Kinderdijk, Netherland
  • Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
  • Monte Carlo, Monaco
  • N
  • Oslo, Norway
  • Pisa, Italy
  • Queenstown, New Zealand
  • Rochefort, Belgium
  • Singapore, Singapore
  • Toulouse, France
  • Ulm, Germany
  • Visby, Sweden
  • Woy Woy, Australia
  • Xenia, USA
  • Yokohama, Japan
  • Zurich, Switzerland

Score: 25/26

Singapore Merlion
S is for Singapore!

This is Dina’s list. I think it would be cheating if I put places that Ryan’s been without me :) I’ve been in lots of cities that start with N, but I have used their countries somewhere else. The rule of one country one city is really the challenge of this game! I rearranged several times, and this is the closest one to finish. 25 of 26!

So, what about yours? Post it up right here as a comment!

    Oh, this does not look easy at all at first glance! How long did it take you to compile your list? I think I’ll work on it (I think) and post it here, but it will take a while.

    Those are great photos of you guys! :)

      It took a while indeed! It ate up a lot of my spare time, trying to work out a way to make it fit. Especially since we don’t have much countries to spare, and there are some countries where we only visited a few cities, and their first letters overlap with others.
      I hope you will post up your answer here :)

    This looks fun and I will compile my list too (when I have some free time to do it) It’s also a great way to see names of cities that aren’t that common. Even some from your list, I’m interested in visiting now…

    Hmm… sounds like a great way for me to waste time when I’m at work, LOL. I don’t think I can do it, though. No X’s as far as I can remember. Thanks for sharing!
