Sporcle Off-Topic Quizzes of the Week- Geography Edition/Sporcle Contest Part 7

It's geography week on the Sporcle Off-Topic Quizzes of the Week! We've got three more quizzes, all focused on Geography. And, if TVRG is anything like the Sporcle comments section, I'm expecting some "Too US-centric" comments any second now.

1- Pennsylvania Cities
I only got nine of these. I live in Pennsylvania. I have for all of my life. I am embarrassed. But at least I got Allentown. Which is where I live. At this point, I wouldn't even be surprised if I did get my hometown wrong. I did, however, guess the unfortunately named "Intercourse", as well as cities that aren't even in Pennsylvania, like Newark and Newburyport.
My Score: 9/14

This quiz is one of Sporcle's biggest success stories, and it's currently one of the #1 quizzes on Sporcle. It's also one of the first-ever published "Picture Click" quizzes, and while the Picture Click format has been used for many, many quizzes since its introduction, this one remains the gold standard. It's just a lot of fun, and it's a real challenge if you don't know the exact locations of each state. I will admit, I've messed up on this quite a bit, but I'm still drawn to it quite frequently.
My Score: 50/50

This quiz is dedicated to loyal Sporcle Quizzes of the Week participant Miguens, who requested it in last week's comment section. I'm happy to oblige, as that comment helped me discover some great Brazil quizzes. Of all of those, this one was my favorite. It's a fun little picture click that I had a lot of trouble with because I'm really bad at international geography. But I CAN locate Wyoming on a US map, so that's something.
My Score: 7/10

1- JB, 73 points
2- Barb, 71 points
3- Lisa, 68 points
4- Crazy Ex-Nashville Fan, 67 points
5-Miguens, 55 points

This is the first week of the Off-Topic TVRG-Sporcle Tournament. For each week, the number of questions you got correct on each quiz will be added up. The first place finisher receives 3 points for placing first, as well. This is the same scoring system used for the TV edition, which is posted once weekly on Thursdays. Also, to make things fair, please use the score for your first attempt on each quiz as your official score.
