Description: Geography quiz about the castles in France, Luxembourg, Belgium and The Netherlands. The quiz consists of the castle photos, displayed in random order and the player (resp. the two players) have to find the castle's name, by selecting it from a list. The questions may be about the complete picture set (163 photos), or be limited to Luxembourg (40 photos), the Benelux (50 photos), France (50 photos) or France (106 photos). The difficulty level may be adjusted by choosing the number of castle name choices, that will be proposed to select from; the "no correct answer" choice may be included or excluded.
Another feature of the application is a slideshow, allowing to display the castle photos of one of the country/region lists with their name.
The application GUI is in French, but should not cause a real problem if you don't speak this language. Castle names are mostly in French, too, some of them being in Dutch.
