    What do these have in common?

    Europe
    America
    Africa
    Boston
    Asia

    I'm sure there's others but I can't think of them.

    EDIT: Actually, better yet. If you know what it is and know more of them don't give an answer, just list the others that you know.

    I think I know the pattern and I don't think Chicago fits, but I can't come up with any more examples right now.

    Austria
    Alberta
    Ontario
    London
    Dallas

    and a fancy one...Sheffield.

    Vatican might fit except it would be excluded as Vatican City.

    Have I got it right?

    Edit: Uh, oh, if Chicago is right then I got the pattern wrong.

    Oh, crap. Kansas, then?


    Edit: PM'ed Sokar with my revised theory, I think Kansas actually fits what I originally thought (and I'm guessing KOW is thinking) and what nosignal got.

    I would have gone with all the ones Holysinner put up, but Chicago totally doesn't fit what I was thinking.

    I should probably add that I got Africa confused and it doesn't belong in the list unless it's an either/or situation. :drunk:

    EDIT @Holysinner. Yes you got it right, but your original theory was interesting. I was wondering what the hell you two were going on about.

    Re: What do these have in common?

    They are all places? They all contain letters? Unless there is a unique relationship you have to be more specific.

    Well, I figured the first and last vowel were the same but if Chicago fits then I dunno. I presume it's not that they all contain a repeat letter, either consonant or vowel.

    Pakistan? Australia?

    I have no idea if I have the pattern correct.

    Re: What do these have in common?

    If anyone could PM me the pattern.. I'm initially I thought they were supposed to start and end with the same letter (like Dondrei thought), but Chicago threw that idea out.

    I'm going nuts here.

    PM sent.

    I think if Sokar hadn't thrown us off with the inclusion of Africa, a lot of us would have figured it out more quickly. Yeah, that's the ticket. :wink3:

    Nope, not even close.

    I can supply a lot more.

    And i'm sure Sokar could as well (along with others that have figured it out).

    It's driving me crazy as well, but I have a threory.

    Iceland: Yes
    Argentina: No

    Am I right with assuming that Brazil is both yes and no ?
