Okay the scores:

Contestants:          Right: 1  Wrong: 2
LadyM  1
Leng    1

which one of these places is fake?

1. Buffalo, Kansas

2. Mariposa, California

3. Little Falls, New York

4. Grenora, South Carolina

5. Spencer, West Virginia

My guess is that Little Falls, New York is fake, first instinct.

Um... Here's a ridiculous question. How far above sea level is Colorado Springs?

Approx. 1 mile, or 5,280 ft.

What is the name of the National Park that Mount McKinley is located in?

I'm not sure. The only thing that comes to mind is "Presidents National Park," but it's probably not right.

Name the smallest island nation in the world.

Nauru. This is off the top of my head, but I think it's only 21mi2 or something like that.

So, how'd I do this time?

More questions!!!

The answer I was looking for was Denali National Park located in Alaska. Mt. McKinley is also called Denali by the locals. It's quite beautiful.

Colorado Springs is about 7,000 feet above sea level. I know this because I want to go to the Air Force Academy, located in Colorado Springs. The air is a lot thinner up there, so physical training is going to be t3h sux0rz!

Sorry to inform you, but Colorado Springs is only 6,035ft above sea level. The Air Force Base is at a higher elevationthan the the city is. There for I can't award you the points, because you were wrong, but I don't get any points either because I was wrong, too. Keep playing!

Which island has more land area, New Guinea or Borneo?
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

This is for points? Are the points redeemable for anything?

Here's your geography question: What is the state bird of New York?

I think thats more trivia related than geography related. I've found myself wanting to ask trivia questions too which could actually be an idea for a whole new game.

Alright, if that's just trivia then I change my question. I put it in because I thought geography was the study of land and the people who live there or something.

Anyway, here's my new question: Name one Indian kingdom (I mean in the country of India, not Native Americans.)
