Which city with N promises more points?

Goal of the game City-Country-River is to get as many points as possible for the respective solutions. Since there are fewer points if several players have the same solution in a category, it is often better not to give the “standard answer”.

In the case of a city with an N, the German cities Nuremberg or Neuss or New York City or Naples are often mentioned. If two or more players have decided to do so, only 5 points are awarded. But if you are the only player to write another city, you get 10 points.

A more promising answer would therefore be the Brazilian city natal or the city Nyon in Switzerland.

In the case of German cities, cities promise Nagold in Baden-Wurttemberg, north or Northeim in Lower Saxony, due to their short spelling, higher chances of being the only player to have written them down.

Of course, Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz or Neustadt am Rübenberge are also mentioned less often, but here you should always keep an eye on the length of a word. It just depends on how fast you can write or how slow the other players are.

In the tables above, we have listed less used cities with N in the lower area and the supposedly more frequently used cities above. We also focused more on shorter city names.
What are your favorite cities with an N?
  • Are you glad you can think of a few cities with an N at all?
  • Do you prefer “unusual” city names?
  • Do you think of cities from your region faster than big cities or capitals?
